Dr. Charles Jacobs, named by the Forward as one of America’s top 50 Jewish leaders, heads Americans for Peace and Tolerance. Jacobs has founded and led several highly successful organizations characterized by groundbreaking ideas and initiatives. In 1989, Jacobs co-founded the Boston branch of the Committee for Accuracy in Middle East Reporting in America. In 1993, together with Muslim and Christian Africans, Jacobs founded the American Anti-Slavery Group, dedicated to bringing international attention to the enslavement of black Africans in Sudan. In 2002, Jacobs co-founded The David Project, which has since grown into a premier international educational institute that works to bolster the Jewish community’s response to the ideological assault on Israel with educational programs, advocacy training, and easy to implement campaigns on campuses, in high schools, churches, the media, and in the general community.
About the Teacher and The Preacher
The Teacher and the Preacher is a weekly radio program–hosted by Dave McGarrah, Senior Pastor at Deer Flat Church in Caldwell, Idaho, and Harold Berman of Efrat, Israel–that airs each Sunday at 10:30 am and 7:30 pm here on 94.1 The Voice KBXL and also on Sunday evenings at 5 pm on our sister station 790 KSPD. They are a unique phenomenon on the airwaves – a Christian and a Jew in an ongoing dialogue – celebrating the many commonalities but never shying away from the differences. They offer their listeners insights into each other’s faiths that don’t come up much elsewhere, that can only come through sincere conversation. The weekly discussion is more than a program about a topic; it’s a demonstration of how God can bring two people together from 9,000 miles away to bridge the differences, learn from each other, and strengthen their own faiths.
