2/24/2024
Join America's Roundtable (https://americasrt.com/) radio co-hosts Natasha Srdoc and Joel Anand Samy with Rabbi Eliot H. Pearlson who serves at the Temple Menorah in Miami Beach, Florida. This weekend on America's Roundtable, the conversation with Rabbi Eliot Pearlson will include the following key topics: Is “American exceptionalism” fading? The agenda to re-write America’s unique role in advancing freedom and the rule of law. Socialism in Latin America and lessons for America’s citizens. How October 7, 2023 changed Israel. The call to free Americans and Israeli hostages still held captive in Gaza. The significance of remembrance. The future of the Abraham Accords. Is Biden’s new executive order targeting Israeli citizens and politicians ⏤ a departure of US support for the Jewish state? Brief biography | Rabbit Eliot H. Pearlson In 1989, Rabbi Eliot H. Pearlson succeeded Rabbi Meyer Abramowitz ז”ל, who had served Temple Menorah since its founding in 1949. Rabbi Pearlson was no stranger to Temple Menorah, having served as our Director of Education before leaving for a pulpit in Asheville, North Carolina. Born in upstate New York, he is the youngest of eight children. His parents, Sylvia and Ben ז”ל were farmers near Buffalo until moving to Miami Beach in 1963, where they entered the Hotel and Hospitality industry. Within months of assuming his duties, Rabbi Pearlson followed in the footsteps of his predecessor, affirming the well-deserved notoriety of Temple Menorah by opening the institution to hundreds of Russian Jews escaping from the Soviet Union. Along with the survivors of the Holocaust and the refugees of Castro’s Cuba, another generation of Jewish refugees were guaranteed a spiritual home and place to worship. Education Rabbi Pearlson’s Jewish education is varied and diverse. Although serving in a Traditional synagogue, Rabbi Pearlson has studied in “Litvishe” Yeshiva programs such as the Greater Miami Mesifta, The Talmudic University , Lubavitch Yeshiva-Tomchei Tmimim, and Yeshiva University. In addition to his religious studies, Rabbi Pearlson has undergraduate degrees in Jewish Studies and Biochemistry, a Masters Degree in Rabbinic Literature, and graduate studies in Microbiology at the University of Florida. He was granted his Doctor of Ministry (D.Min.) degree in Community Leadership by The Florida Center for Theological Studies in 2010. Rabbi Pearlson received Orthodox Rabbinic Ordination at the Diaspora Yeshiva on Mt. Zion-Jerusalem. Community Among Rabbi Pearlson’s community outreach efforts has been the ‘adoption’ of an African American Church. ln addition to a pulpit exchange with its minister, Temple Menorah also sponsored its Afternoon Computer Lab for Children at Risk. As a Jewish activist, Rabbi Pearlson has been arrested defending Jewish causes in Auschwitz-Birkenau, New York City and Miami—as his supporters note: “Arrested, but never convicted.” Further reading: Is America Exceptional? By Norman Podhoretz | Author, My Love Affair with America (https://imprimis.hillsdale.edu/is-america-exceptional/) Brief excerpt: "We have excelled by following our Founding Fathers in directing our energies, as our Constitution exhorts us to do, to the preservation of the blessings of liberty to ourselves and our posterity, as well as to the pursuit of happiness tacitly understood by the Declaration of Independence to require prosperity as a precondition. (In his original draft of the Declaration, of course, Jefferson used the word “property” instead of “pursuit of happiness.”) By remaining faithful in principle—and to a considerable extent in practice—to the ideas by which the Founders hoped to accomplish these ends, we and our forebears have fashioned a country in which more liberty and more prosperity are more widely shared than among any other people in human history. Yes, even today that holds true, despite policies unfaithful both to the letter and to the spirit of the traditional American system that have...

America's Roundtable with Gerard Gibert | The Rising Costs of Healthcare in America | Advancing Principled Solutions

1/30/2024
Join America's Roundtable (https://americasrt.com/) radio co-hosts Natasha Srdoc and Joel Anand Samy with Gerard Gibert, entrepreneur, technologist, talk show host and founder and former CEO of Venture Technologies. The discussion focuses on key issues impacting America with an emphasis on the how the nation's rising health care costs are adversely affecting families, citizen-taxpayers, and private enterprises across the nation. In 1986, Mr. Gibert founded Venture Technologies, a technology and cloud services provider. As CEO of Venture, Mr. Gibert engineered numerous mergers and acquisitions of strategic targets, catapulting Venture to national prominence as a technology solutions provider. Initially funded at $189,000, Venture was sold for $92 million in 2019. Mr. Gibert serves on a variety of boards dedicated to growing Mississippi’s economy. That list includes the Madison County Economic Development Authority, Madison County Business League and Foundation, Innovate Mississippi, Empower Mississippi, and the Mississippi Lottery Corporation. Gerard Gibert recently presented a compelling op-ed piece via SuperTalk.FM titled "We need out-of-the-box thinking to address Mississippi’s healthcare woes." In a recent piece shared by Shakeel Ahmed, CEO at Atlas Surgical Group via Forbes in November 2023, the medical professional highlighted the following key statistics: In 2021, the nation’s healthcare expenditure reached a staggering $4.3 trillion, accounting for 18.3% of the GDP, according to Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) data. In 2021, Americans spent an estimated $378 billion just on prescription drugs, as reported by Statista. This represents a substantial portion of overall healthcare spending, and the continuous increase in drug prices compounds the problem. The Kaiser Family Foundation found that the annual family premium for employer-sponsored health insurance plans surpassed $21,000 in 2020. americasrt.com (https://americasrt.com/) https://ileaderssummit.org/ | https://jerusalemleaderssummit.com/ America's Roundtable on Apple Podcasts: https://podcasts.apple.com/us/podcast/americas-roundtable/id1518878472 Twitter: @grgibert @ileaderssummit @AmericasRT @NatashaSrdoc @JoelAnandUSA @supertalk America's Roundtable is co-hosted by Natasha Srdoc and Joel Anand Samy, co-founders of International Leaders Summit and the Jerusalem Leaders Summit.

America's Roundtable with Dr. Ben Carson | Israel's War Against Hamas | America's Sacrosanct Ties with Israel | Addressing the Rise of Anti-Semitism

12/3/2023
Join America's Roundtable (https://americasrt.com/) radio co-hosts Natasha Srdoc and Joel Anand Samy with Benjamin S. Carson, Sr., M.D., America’s 17th Secretary of the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development and founder of the American Cornerstone Institute. Dr. Carson is former Chief of Pediatric Neurosurgery at Johns Hopkins Hospital. He is author of bestselling books: Gifted Hands, Think Big, A More Perfect Union, The Big Picture, America the Beautiful, and Created Equal. The discussion on America's Roundtable focuses on Israel's war against Iran-backed Hamas, Iran's proxies attacking US facilities, and the significance of America's sacrosanct ties with Israel. Dr. Carson addresses the rise of anti-Semitism in America. The conversation brings to the forefront the successful Abraham Accords and the urgency to hold to account Iran, a state sponsor of terrorism. Benjamin S. Carson, Sr., M.D. For a time, the likelihood of Benjamin S. Carson, Sr., M.D. fulfilling his childhood dream of becoming a physician seemed unlikely. Growing up in a single parent home with dire poverty, poor grades, a horrible temper, and low self-esteem appeared to preclude the realization of that dream until his mother, with only a third-grade education, challenged her sons to strive for excellence. She observed successful people and encouraged her sons to emulate their behaviors, including reading. This led to behavior changes which had a profound effect on their education. In 1973, Ben Carson graduated from Yale University. He went on to receive his M.D. from the University of Michigan Medical School. At the age of 33, Dr. Carson became the chief of pediatric neurosurgery at Johns Hopkins Hospital, making him the youngest major division director in the hospital’s history. This would be among an extensive list of outstanding firsts for Dr. Carson. Dr. Carson’s accomplishments have earned him a place in medical history. He performed the first and only successful separation of craniopagus (Siamese) twins joined at the back of the head in 1987. He also performed the first fully successful separation of type-2 vertical craniopagus twins in 1997 in South Africa. In his career, Dr. Carson became a professor of neurosurgery, oncology, plastic surgery, and pediatrics at the Johns Hopkins School of Medicine, and directed pediatric neurosurgery at the Johns Hopkins Children’s Center for over 29 years. He became the inaugural recipient of a professorship dedicated in his name in May 2008. He is now the Emeritus Benjamin S. Carson, Sr., M.D. and Dr. Evelyn Spiro, R.N. Professor of Pediatric Neurosurgery, having retired on June 30, 2013. In 2016, Dr. Carson accepted the position of Secretary of Housing and Urban Development under the Trump administration. After completing his tenure as the 17th Secretary of the Department of Housing and Urban Development in 2021, Dr. Carson founded the American Cornerstone Institute. This organization is focused on fighting for the principles that have guided him through life and that make this country great: faith, liberty, community and life. americasrt.com (https://americasrt.com/) https://ileaderssummit.org/ | https://jerusalemleaderssummit.com/ America's Roundtable on Apple Podcasts: https://podcasts.apple.com/us/podcast/americas-roundtable/id1518878472 Twitter: @RealBenCarson @ileaderssummit @AmericasRT @NatashaSrdoc @JoelAnandUSA @supertalk America's Roundtable is co-hosted by Natasha Srdoc and Joel Anand Samy, co-founders of International Leaders Summit and the Jerusalem Leaders Summit.
