VOI’s Ari Abramowitz and Jeremy Gimpel are joined in-studio by Yirmiyahu Cohen, editor of TrueTorahJews.com and an outspoken anti-Zionist Satmar rabbi, and David Waldman, an Orthodox Zionist rabbi and resident of a settlement, to debate whether religious Jews should support the modern state of Israel.

Sparks fly as Ari and Jeremy post tough questions, such as: How can religious Jews support a secular, sometimes anti-religious, state? Should we dismantle the IDF and let Israel’s enemies destroy the state? Should we wait for the Messiah, or take action to pave the way for his coming?
