On the Yiddish Voice tonight we have a very interesting guest. He's an actor and entertainer, but no ordinary one. He is a Chareidi Jew, specifically a Skverer Chossid. In his relatively short life he has suffered no small amount. He's a widower. He not only lost his wife, but then they wanted to take his son away from him. All that and more make up the plot of a new movie named "Menashe", in which this man, whose name stage name is Menachem Lustig, play the leading role. Menachem Lustig is our guest with an interview on this week's show.

Also on this week's show:

In honor of Israel Independence Day (Yom Haatsmaut): from our archives: Hasia Segal talks about a relatively unsung hero of Israel, and a Bostonian, the late Dewey Stone.

Interview with the reporter known as Jake Turx, Whitehouse correspondent for Ami Magazine. His question about anti-semitism at the first press conference of President Donald Trump on Feb. 16 caused a stir because Trump became angry at him, cutting him off, telling him to sit down, and accusing him of dishonesty. "A Jewish Reporter Got to Ask Trump a Question.", read a New York Times headline on Feb. 17, 2017, "It Didn’t Go Well." (https://www.nytimes.com/2017/02/17/us/politics/trump-press-conference-jake-turx.html)
