Rocky Mountain Jew presents its weekly round of Jewish-related stories from around the globe. In Russia, the chief rabbi Berel Lazar discusses Putin, the World Economic Forum and the Russia-Israel relationship. PBS follows-up its recent Oliver Twist adaptation with some self-exploration of its portrayal of the repugnant – and Jewish – character Fagin. And in New York, a Jewish British woman writes about reconciling her ethnic and national identities.
