The Netanyahu Speech Debacle and Tikkun Olam in the Knesset9 February 2023
Is a breach of protocol really behind the Obama-Netanyahu rift over a speech before Congress in March? Should Israeli Ambassador to the US Ron Dermer be fired, as some pundits have argued?
VOI editor and Israel Hayom columnist Ruthie Blum and Alex Traiman, Middle East analyst and JNS Jerusalem correspondent, join Yishai Fleisher in-studio to discuss the huge controversy surrounding the issue.
Then, Yesh Atid party MK Dr. Aliza Lavie, author of "A Jewish Woman's Prayer Book" -- which received the 2008 National Jewish Book Award -- talks to VOI about her work.
Focusing on gender and multiculturalism in Judaism, and the role of media in politics and religion, she tells Yishai about her fight for Tikkun Olam (making the world a better place) efforts in the Knesset, to help Jewish law meet the modern reality of the Jewish state.
