Orthodox Conundrum

Aug 16, 2021

Many people believe that there are essentially no mamzerim anymore. Many people believe that if someone is suspected of being a mamzer, the problem is quickly resolved. Many people believe that if a person is determined to be a mamzer, there is nothing left to do. Rivkah Lubitch, of the Center for Women's Justice and an advocate for agunot and mamzerim in Israel, asserts that all three of these assumptions are incorrect. Join Scott for a fascinating and sometimes disturbing conversation with Rivkah about mamzerim in Israel.
