Puah’s Day of enLIGHTment


Last Week Wednesday, December 5th of 2012, Puah (see here, here and here) held a pre-Chanuka Day of EnLIGHTment at the beautiful home of Rachel and David Franco in Brooklyn.

Puah-2

It featured a Chinese Auction, a music class for mothers and young daughters (given by Mariel Dweck) and a deeply inspirational talk by Chani Shelby. These were followed at 1:30pm by Panel of Awareness with Josh Klein, MD; Rabbi Gideon Weitzman and Rivki Itzkowitz.

Dr Klein is an Orthodox physician specializing in Fertility; Rabbi Weitzman is the director of Puah and he’s based at the organization main headquarters in Jerusalem; Mrs. Itzkowitz is in charge of the Madrichot, who oversee the lab work and more to ensure that halachic rulings are followed at every step of the procedure.

In you know anyone in need of their services or you wish to help Puah financially, please contact the organization’s American Director Mrs. Lea Davidson, at: 718.336.0603 in Brooklyn.

Tonight’s Radio Show – Puah Institute


Our guest – last Wednesday – was Aaron Ritter, president and founder of the Kosher Wine Society. We spoke about Israeli wines and his recent tour of 16 Israeli wineries and the 100 wines the tour participants tasted. If you missed it, you can hear the archive right here: A Conversation with Aaron Ritter.

This evening we turn away from our usual food and wine discussions. The Kosher Scene, as you know, covers every aspect of the kosher lifestyle. Our talk this evening will be about the Puah Institute. What is the Puah Institute?  As their web site puts it: “Puah Institute, under the guidance of Rabbi Menachem Burstein, provides counseling, referrals and support, free-of-charge, to all those seeking professional help. Our discreet and caring counselors possess a unique synthesis of pastoral wisdom and specialized training in modern reproductive medicine. Professional Puah supervisors certify the genetic integrity of fertility treatments worldwide.” Their counselors cover every facet from halacha to women’s health, to men’s health, to intimacy issues and more.

We will be talking to Rabbi Gideon Weitzman, Director General of the Puah Institute in Jerusalem, and Mrs. Leah Davidson who runs Puah‘s American offices. We will discuss how the organization came about, some of various places on the globe where they have offices and what services they provide.

Please listen to this informative show (which we pretaped this morning) about an Israeli organization providing free counseling to couples around the map. Please listen this evening, we will be on at blogtalkradio from 8:00pm – 8:30pm Eastern Time. If you know anyone who could be helped by this organization, or would like to help out, please tell them to listen in to tonight’s show.
