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.

Connect to our fundraising campaign at and thanks for the love!

RFN's 7th Annual 9 Days of Jerry Coming in August (Right After Tisha b'Av)!

"We're not the best at what we do, we're the only ones who do it."

 No other internet radio station plays 9 solid days of all Jerry and Jerry-related programming every year for 7 years, adjusting programming start dates to align with the halachic imperatives of the Jewish calendar! 

Radio Free Nachlaot's 7th annual 9 DAYS OF JERRY begins Sunday night, August 14th, after 11pm Jerusalem time and continues unabated and unabashedly through the end of Tuesday August 23rd, breaking only for "Shabbos Jerry" (this year Parshat Va'etchanan).

Because 5776/2016 is the 19th year of the 19 year Metonic Cycle, silly. :)

We will be off the air from Rosh Chodesh Av (August 5th) through the end of Tisha b'Av - then starting up again full-throttle with the 7th Annual 9DOJ!
