On September 6, 2022, Rabbi Meir Soloveichik launched a new daily podcast, Jerusalem 365, in which he tells the 4,000-year history of the most interesting, spiritually dynamic city in the world.

To mark this momentous occasion, Tikvah has convened a series of conversations between Rabbi Soloveichik and important public leaders, to discuss their unique connections to the Holy City—“What Jerusalem Means To Me.” Through these wide-ranging discussions, we’ll come to learn what makes Jerusalem so important to people of all walks of life, and understand why a podcast like Jerusalem 365 is so essential right now.

In this video, Rabbi Soloveichik is joined by the former U.S. Secretary of State, Michael Pompeo.
