Many of you may remember the harrowing days of October 45 years ago this weekend with the start of the Yom Kippur War of 1973.
Dan Almagor was serving on the Golan Heights 45 years ago in what became a momentous battle of the war, as a handful of Israelis stopped the advance of the entire Syrian army in the battle of Tel Saki.
On L'Chayim, Dan Almagor gives his personal account of the battle and describes the powerful documentary film that recounts the events of Oct 6-8, 1973, "The Battle Over The Soul," which we will be showing on JBS (Monday 8pm & Midnight, Tuesday 3pm).
And JBS will feature a number of outstanding programs on the Yom Kippur war with Michael Oren, Yossi Klein Halevi ("Like Dreamers") and Francine Klagsbrun ("Lioness").
Also this week, meet Avi Issacharoff and Lior Raz,the two creators of the action hit Israeli and American Netflix series, "Fauda," which vividly portrays the dramatic story of Israeli intelligence attempts to prevent Palestinian terrorist attacks, in a program from the 92nd Street Y in New York City (Sunday 8pm & 1am, repeated throughout the week).
And meet Emmy Award winning stars of the Emmy Award winning comedy series, "The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel," including Rachel Brosnahan (Best Actress in a comedy series) and Alex Borstein (Best Supporting Actress in a comedy series) (Thursday 9pm & Midnight, Friday 3pm, Saturday 6pm).
