What are the benefits and challenges of raising children in Israel? What are the the differences between growing up in America and Israel? In this special Yom Ha’atzmaut episode, we are incredibly grateful for the opportunity to talk to Rav Jesse Horn, a very popular and sought-after Rebbe in Yeshivat Hakotel on the topic of raising children in Israel, and how Americans can help their children to develop a genuine love for Eretz Yisroel, and so much more.
Rabbi Horn is a Senior Ram (Rosh Metivta) at Yeshivat Hakotel. He also teaches at MMY and has taught in other seminaries, such as Shaalvim for Women and Midreshet HaRova. He regularly lectures as a scholar-in-residence in communities all over the world.
Rabbi Horn is the author of Double Take, a book about Biblical personalities, and numerous other articles for Beis Yitzhak, Arutz Sheva, World Mizrachi, and other scholarly publications.
He also authors a weekly email in which he answers Halachic questions to an audience of almost 1,500 readers.
