      There's a tradition some Jews do, by waving a chicken over their heads to symbolically take away their sins.  Afterwards, the chicken is given to the poor for a holiday meal.  Is this tradition one worth keeping, or changing?  Richard H. Schwartz, Ph.D., from  End Chickens as Kaporos and author of 'Judaism and Vegetarianism', 'Judaism and Global Survival', 'Mathematics and Global Survival', and 'Who Stole My Religion', and 200 articles at JewishVeg.com/schwartz, joins Tamar and explains why most Jews and rabbis are against using chickens for Kapparot.

      Also, where is the Israeli leadership in regards to a U.S. strike on Syria?  Are they for it, or against it, and if against, what do they believe should be the method to deal with Syria and Iran?  Tamar speaks with David Oman an international relations and conflict research, management and resolution expert.  He has worked as a journalist, director of communications and consultant, and worked in the Israel advocacy and Middle Eastern Affairs fields for a number of years.  He lectures and holds press conferences in a myriad of forums including the EU, UK and Spanish parliaments. Oman gives us a detailed plan of what the best U.S. and Israeli policy should be, regarding any attack against bullies in the region.
