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.
