Editor-in-chief of The Daily Wire and host of the top conservative podcast in the nation, Ben Shapiro has gained levels of notoriety from his publicized viewpoints on such political hot-button topics as free-speech, abortion, Israel, diversity, and liberalism. He is the author of seven non-fiction books, including NYT and National Best Sellers, and is a nationally-syndicated columnist, having written for major newspapers and websites since age 17. He is known for his college campus activism, often speaking to students about pitfalls of Leftist ideologies on campus and in academia as a whole, and speaking strongly against anti-Israel and BDS movements.
In this episode, Ben Shapiro discusses what it means to exist in the political sphere as a Torah-observant Jew. He encourages others in the observant community to join in current political discourse, stressing that avoidance of such dialogue diminishes the ability of Jews to contribute towards modern culture and morality. Shapiro speaks on the growing rift in American Jewry between secular Judaism and Orthodox Judaism and how this divergence is reflected on the political level.
