The popular “Crossfire!” is back with an all-new panel! Have you ever wished to have a “no-holds-barred” discussion with a Rabbi and get answers to all of your burning questions? This is your chance! This Crossfire session at the National Jewish Retreat featured a panel including Rabbi Yosef Schusterman, spiritual leader of Chabad of N. Beverly Hills and the Halachic authority for the community of Greater Los Angeles; Rabbi Simon Jacobson, head of the Meaningful Life Center, author of ‘Towards a Meaningful life”, sought-after lecturer and publisher of “The Algemeiner Journal”; and Rabbi Manis Friedman, world-renowned author and lecturer, author of “Doesn’t Anyone Blush Anymore” and Dean of the Bais Chana Institute in Minnesota. The panel was moderated by former television producer Molly Resnick. Dozens of questions were addressed on a wide variety of topics from the moral to the political. In this video, you will find answers to thought-provoking questions such as: “If the person you marry is your soulmate, why is divorce allowed in Judaism?” “Can I drive a self-driving car on Shabbos?” “Why Don’t Women Put on Tefilin?” “Is Chabad Zionist?” “May One Pray in Another Language?” “Is the Pursuit of Wealth Contradictory to the Torah?” “Is the exchange of terrorist prisoners for Israeli captives allowed?” “Do all the tiny technical details of Mitzvot really matter?” To see our other “Crossfire!” videos, click here .
