The Mottle Wolfe Show on Voice of Israel
Has the time come to stop refraining from eating Kitniyot (legumes) on Passover? Traditionally, Jews of European decent do not eat legumes during the holiday. Rabbi David Bar-Hayim joins VOI’s Mottle Wolfe in-studio to explain the origins of this custom and why it may no longer be relevant.
Was Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu telling the truth when he said a Palestinian State will not be created on his watch? VOI’s Mottle Wolfe is joined in-studio by Yishai Fleisher to discuss post-election realities. Issues they discuss are the fact that the majority of Israelis supports Netanyahu’s vision; that the two-state solution is dead; and that neither international pressure nor BDS is going to change that.
VOI’s Mottle Wolfe is joined in-studio by Jeff Daube, Israel director of the Zionist Organization of America, to discuss issues surrounding Tuesday’s Knesset elections.
Then, Mottle takes listeners’ calls and asks whom they are voting for and why. The answers represent the whole spectrum of the electoral population.
Clinical director of the Medical Center for Female Sexuality Bat Sheva Marcus, an Orthodox Jew, joins VOI’s Mottle Wolfe in-studio to discuss the new documentary film, “Sacred Sperm.” The film, which is making a mark at international film festivals, is the story of an ultra-Orthodox man’s attempt to explain the taboo of masturbation to his son.
Bat Sheva discusses how to balance religion and psychology and thereby raise sexually healthy children.
Male masturbation is taboo in Judaism! Ori Gruder speaks with VOI’s Mottle Wolfe about his new documentary film, “Sacred Sperm,” which deals with the Jewish taboo of masturbation.
