On the Season 3 Finale we interview a Jewish woman who made the decision to be a surrogate and carry a child for someone else, with the support of her husband and their three young children. Carrie and Jamie Bornstein share personally and poignantly about what it means to help another couple become parents, and how their kids and their community dealt with this new reality. And for our opening segment, we respond to a listener who asked about kink: Are certain sexual practices problematic on Shabbat or Yom Tov? What if they involve rope or other implements? What other halakhic issues can come up? Plus, a listener gets the final word with a tough note about the pitfalls of modesty.
