  1. Wonderful insight into this movie.

    Dear Rabbi, I am the Filmmaker behind The Lost Key, an award-winning documentary on the subject of intimacy. The film is endorsed by leading orthodox Rabbis, and at the same time has reached successfully a secular audience, both Jewish and non-Jewish, garnering positive reviews from several film critics. We’d love to be featured on your website. More info: http://www.thelostkey.com, thank you, Ricardo Adler

  3. Rabbi Cohen watching your show and you have my favorite teams (Go Steelers!) hat on. How did you become a Steeler fan?

    • Hi Mort – I got the hat on sale and I am a fan of the old Steelers with Terry Bradshaw and Lynn Swan.
      Thanks for watching. It would be appreciated if you told JBSTV that you enjoyed my show. Happy Chanukah.
