Netanyahu seeks to expand government to fulfill promises made to his coalition partners; Israel’s Religious Affairs Minister Naftali Bennet adds hundreds of rabbis to the State payroll; convicted rabbi-to-the-stars is sentenced to prison time; and a co-conspirator in the scheme that stole from the Met Council on Jewish Poverty is also sentenced to jail time. On a different note, the anniversaries of V.E. Day and the liberation of the Dachau Concentration camp were celebrated recently, and Meredith Ganzman spoke with Holocaust survivor Ben Lesser, also an author, entrepreneur and foundation founder, about his recollections of that fateful day. Plus, a preview of Steven I. Weiss’ “Up Close” interview with Pamela Katz, author of “The Partnership: Brecht, Weill, Three Women, and Germany on the Brink.”
