Interview: Douglas Altabef

Do you know what a Zionist is? If you believe the Jewish people have a right to exist in their ancestral homeland and that they have a right to protect themselves as a nation both biblically and politically, then you are a Zionist! We welcome Douglas Altabef, chairman of the board at Im Tirtzu—an Israeli non-profit promoting Zionist values to the Israeli people.  Sadly, the title “Zionist” is often met with opposition in American, Canadian, and European universities. But did you know that it is also met with opposition by some faculty and students at Israeli universities too? Today Chris and Douglas will be talking about how Im Tirtzu is making sure that values of a Jewish democratic state are promoted and shared on Israeli campuses. Don’t miss this special interview!  Learn more about Im Tirtzu

There Really is a Difference


In the book There Really is Difference, Dr. Renald Showers takes the two popular theological systems or approaches to reading and understanding Scriptures – Dispensational and Covenant theology – and compares them side-by-side, in an easy to understand way.


Apples of Gold: Standing in the Lion’s Den

A well-known rabbi was going to be in town at a local synagogue. He was speaking on life after death. Zvi decided to go to the lecture and during the question and answer time Zvi discussed where the rabbi got his information about life after death. In front of several hundred people, Zvi explained that a person can have eternal life only through faith in the Lord Jesus Christ. Of course this angered the rabbi and he told Zvi to never come to his lecture again. Listen to how the Lord worked in this difficult circumstance.

Zvi’s story is available in Elwood McQuaid’s book, “Zvi: The Miraculous Story of Triumph over the Holocaust,” available at our online store.

More stories from Zvi are also available in his book, “The Best of Zvi,” available at our online store.


The Friends of Israel Today and Apples of Gold theme music was composed and performed by Jeremy Strong.

  1. +Your week to week program is just wondrous. I fail to see how so many do not know of you and the worthiness of this program. Long may it continue and thank God for all that you present for us to hear and learn. Special plaudits for Maestro Strong and his clearly specially inventive music that preceeds each new section of the program
