Today’s interview with the CEO of the Association of Americans and Canadians in Israel will attempt to find the answers; the many points in favour, like the warm feeling to be home - and away from even the covert hatred of Jews; but also the problematic questions like language, job and housing and the elderly.

Also: A new book by Rabbi Berel Wein and Warren Goldstein entitled "Legacy" about the high ethical and moral standard of pre World War II Lithuanian Jews, as taught by their Rabbis.

And: A misguided women’s group; music and more.

Walter Bingham was born in Germany. Just days before the outbreak of WWII, with the help of a Zionist youth movement he was selected for a place on the ‘Kindertransport’ to Great Britain. Walter saw front line action during the Normandy invasion of Europe and was awarded the Military Medal for ‘Bravery in the Field’. In England Walter also acted in films including several Harry Potter films. On the day of his Aliyah in August 2004 he transferred his programme ‘Walter’s World’ to Israel National Radio as a weekly Magazine programme and it has been running here regularly ever since. Walter is an accomplished public speaker and was a member of a visiting panel of lecturers at schools throughout the UK, where he spoke on events in the Third Reich. He has also spoken at schools in the USA and addressed audiences in Israel.
