 10th ANNUAL

It's that time again... time for Our Annual Fundraiser for the only Internet Radio Station in the World bringing the music, talk and Torah of Nachlaot from Jerusalem (and Berkeley) to the World!

Once a Year we treat our world-wide listening audience to all Jerry and Jerry-centric programming for "The 9 Days of Jerry". Most years those 9 days correspond to August 1-9, unless (like this year) Tisha b'Av doesn't fall until after Jerry's birthday.

This year (2019 / 5779) we're doing The 9 Days of Jerry: The Nidcha Edition! Beginning around Midnight August 12 after the (delayed) Fast of Tisha b'Av, continuing all the way until August 23 (excluding Shabbos Jerry and including a double Isru-Jerry), we'll be bringing Jerry to the internet radio waves 24/6.


But it costs money to operate our streaming service, maintain our equipment, and deal with broadcast emergencies like (G*d forbid, lo alaynu) blown-up laptops, etc.

Once a year we ask you to "throw some change into our virtual guitar case".  IT'S THAT TIME AGAIN!

We'll be running our fundraiser from "The 9 Days of Jerry" through Rosh HaShanah 5780, and we need YOUR help to stay on the air! CLICK HERE TO DONATE!

Thank you in advance for being kind!

Fire On The Moshav!

The recording studio and home of musician Aryeh Naftali of Israel's favorite Grateful Dead cover band The Elevators went up in flames last week along with 40+ other homes on Moshav Mevo Modiin ("Shlomo's Moshav") in Israel.

The Moshav is one of the most special places in the world. It's literally the location the idea for Radio Free Nachlaot itself was born, during a Moshav Country Fair during Chol haMoed Sukkot in 2008.

We've broadcasted live from the Moshav many a time, and Moshav friends such as Aryeh Naftali and master aromatherapist Avraham Sand have been guests on our station many times as well.

 CLICK HERE TO FIND INFORMATION ABOUT HOW TO CONTRIBUTE  to Aryeh Naftali, Avraham and Leah Sand, and other now-homeless Moshav families.

Click Here to contribute to the general fund that will go to all the Moshav residents affected by this disaster. Thanks for being kind!

We'll Be Off The Air for The 9 Days - But Back Before The 9 Days of Jerry!

As per our minhag in recent years, we'll be off the air for the 9 Days between Rosh Chodesh Av (Friday, July 13th) and Tisha b'Av, returning to our 24/6 broadcast schedule after the Fast.

This year the Fast of Tisha b'Av is delayed because of Shabbat, so it is observed on Sunday, July 22nd. The fast ends at 8:12pm Jerusalem time. Because it's actually the 10th of Av, we'll be starting the radio back up sometime later that evening - stay tuned & Steve will let us know exactly when.

Don't forget - Radio Free Nachlaot's 9th Annual 9 DAYS OF JERRY begins Wednesday, August 1st! We'll run until Shabbos begins, Jerusalem time, on Friday August 3rd, and we'll be off for "Shabbos Jerry" until Saturday evening, August 4th. We'll go strong all week long bringing you the best of the legacy of Jerry Garcia until Friday, August 10th ("Isru Jerry").

As we've done the last few years, RFN's 9 Days of Jerry launches our annual donation drive! You can start NOW by supporting our "GO FUND ME" CAMPAIGN (see the top of this page or CLICK HERE). We'll be asking for your support right up until Rosh HaShanah or we meet our (extremely modest) goal of $2000 for this year!

The 9th Annual "9 Days of Jerry" Are Coming - Gevaldt!!!

Radio Free Nachlaot  has been broadcasting the best music, talk and Torah live from Jerusalem "24/6" since November, 2009. RFN's "Where Shlomo Meets Jerry" format keeps our world-wide listening audience connected with Israel through music and culture.

Our non-commercial format has been self-funded with the help of listener donations over the years. We rely on the kindness and generosity of our friends and fans to support our annual fundraiser and keep us on the air another year!

The funds raised from this "Go Fund Me" campaign will be used to pay our broadcasting overhead for the next year. We need your support to stay on the air!

We'll be running the campaign all during our 9th Annual "9 Days of Jerry" (August 1st - August 9th, plus "Isru Jerry" August 10th, 2018) through Rosh HaShanah, or until our goal is met. Thanks in advance for your generous support!

Off the Air for "Shabbos Jerry" - Then Rolling Jerry-Style Until Isru-Jerry!

We're driving the #9DOJ bus all the way to Shabbos - "Shabbos Jerry", when we are blessed to be able to perform the biggest Kiddush HaShem we can do the entire year - we shut down the radio for Shabbos (like we do every week). But "why is this week different from every other week"? Because it's our annual "9 Days of Jerry" and we have 10X or more our normal listening audience hanging on our every note. People from countries you'd never suspect are listening. We turn off for Shabbos and turn back on Moetzi Shabbos, Jerusalem time, when the #9DOJ will continue all the way through "Isru Jerry" (Friday August 11th).

Are you Kind? Please help support the world's only Kosher Hippie ("Kippie") internet radio station. We're not the best at what we do - we're just the only ones who do it :) and we've been doing it since November 2009, B"H.
