This week, we ask the question: Is it a mitzvah to obey traffic laws and discuss the Torah commandment to protect our health and safety.

We also explore Occupy Wall Street and look at social and economic justice through the lens of Jewish Law.

In the second half, we look at the recent 'Abba-Gate' controversy and examine the mitzvah of living in the Land of Israel.
