A Portrait of American Aliyah, and the Touchy Topic of Abortion
With three kids and a high-paying job as a lawyer in New York, Zach Abramowitz immigrated to Israel -- in the middle of the war in Gaza, with rockets flying into the Jewish state, no less. VOI's Ari Abramowitz -- Zach's cousin -- hears his brutally honest account of the professional and personal challenges involved in "aliyah" (immigration to Israel) and the surprising upsides of uprooting his family and moving them halfway across the world. Then, VOI's Molly Livingstone joins Ari and co-host Jeremy Gimpel in-studio to talk about the touchy topic of abortion -- going head-to-head on this on this sensitive and controversial issue. Can a woman abort a male fetus merely because she doesn’t to want to bring “another man into the world”? Where does Judaism stand on abortion, and does it conflict with the official position of the Jewish State? All this and more.
