Friends - it's Erev Chag haSukkot in Israel and we are OFF THE AIR until Monday evening! That's right, another holiday! We're the luckiest people in the world! Sukkot is "zman simchatyanu," the time of our joyful happiness - and we're sharing it with you and wishing all our RFN friends, family & fans a sweet and wonderful Sukkot! See ya on the radio Monday night (and for those of you chutz l'Eretz who keep 2 days of Yom Tov, you can catch up to us on Tuesday night - but isn't this even MORE of a reason to move to Israel? ) CHAG SUKKOT SAMEACH EVERYONE!

A Gut Kvitel, A Gut Vinter!

My friend Shmeil, at the end of Yom Kippur, after the blessing on the moon would have (and hopefully still has) a "rekida" (a dance) after which he would wish everyone a Gut Vinter!
The seasons are changing people. It's after Yom Kippur - almost Sukkot.
Days are getting shorter....and so, in the spirit of the shorter days (and only 6 hours to the East Coast of the US) we are going to start cookin' for Shabbos at 9:00 PM tonight, and for the next few weeks, and then decide if we will keep the "cookin' for Shabbos" show at 9 cause we like it, or go back to it's original and regular 10:00 slot.  There is something for starting a show at 10:00 PM. I really don't know what it is, but there is something.
Anyway, Thursday is "coming down upon us."
7:00 Temple Talk with Rabbi Chaim Richman and Yitzhak Reuven
8:00 Some "hors d'ouevres" - some prep for the "cookin'" show
9:00 Cookin' for Shabbos - where we bring down good vibes/shefa/musical seasonings to help you cook for Shabbos.
Hey, everyone needs a soundtrack, and that's what we're here for.
Radio Free Nachlaot - the soundtrack for your life!

Sunday Night Live with Shlomo!

That's right! Tonight our featured guest will be Shlomo Carlebach.
We're going to let Shlomo lead us towards Yom Kippur.
Now, if the feeling you get after hearing Shlomo for a few hours on the radio doesn't get you feelin' a - live, then in the words of Joe Jackson, "Jack, you're dead!" - well, ok, maybe you just need a little more Shlomo with your Grateful Dead....
I ramble.
Tune in tonight, Sunday Night - 8:00 PM, Jerusalem Time, for Sunday Night Live, with Shlomo.

Rosh HaShana! Rosh HaShana is coming! Gevaldt, Rosh HaShana 5773 is almost here!!!

All of us at Radio Free Nachlaot wish all of our RFN friends, family and fans a sweet and happy New Year and may we all be inscribed in the Book of Life for good health, true and lasting happiness, real love, easy money, meaningful work, deep and positive relationships, spiritual growth and may we all see the redemption of the world and the Holy Temple built during 5773!

We'll be off the air from Sundown on Sunday night and back on the air sometime after Sundown on Tuesday night (Jerusalem time). "Homegrown" is still scheduled for Tuesday night but it will start a bit late.

We're in the "Days of Awe" - AWESOME DAYS. Steve said today that he blesses us all to know how connected we are to each other and to HKBH even if we don't feel connected.

Sometimes we are the most connected when we don't feel it because we have to rely totally on faith to know that our connection exists whether we feel it emotionally or not. Of course we'd RATHER feel it, right?

May we all FEEL THE CONNECTION and know how much we're loved and how much we love and we should all know - love, love, love!!!
