The Radio Rabbi is back on the air!

An interview broadcast on a Florida radio station 18 years ago when Rabbi Barbara was asked to speak about Jewish ritual and culture around the world led to Rabbi Barbara’s hosting her own radio program – and the Radio Rabbi was born!

After a brief hiatus during COVID-19, the Radio Rabbi program continues its record of service to the local, national and international community with timely topics, and new and traditional Jewish music.



The Radio Rabbi is back on the air on Fridays, at 7 pm, EST and re-broadcast on Saturday afternoon at 1:00 pm, EST on AM 1490 WWPR. Listen live on the radio or listen live stream at

Our Listeners

Some of our listeners are traditionally observant while others are only marginally connected to their Jewish communities. Listeners include Christians who strongly support Israel, interfaith and diverse families, as well as grandparents who are looking for ideas to share Jewish traditions with their interfaith grandchildren. We are also joined by listeners worldwide who live in communities where there is no Jewish presence. All these have found a home with the The Radio Rabbi.

Our Misson

Why? The Radio Rabbi is a Pluralistic program. This means that listeners from all streams of Judaism, including Conservative, Orthodox, Reform, Humanistic and  Reconstructionist, and from all cultural backgrounds including Sephardic and Ashkenazic Jews, crypto-Jews, marranos and conversos, and even secular and gastronomical Jews – As Rabbi Barbara says, “We are all part of the “meshpucha,” a worldwide, wonderful Jewish family so we say to you, “Welcome Home.”
