TV host’s assisted suicide in Zurich shines light on taboo in Israel
Assisted suicide is a topic that often gets coverage in Switzerland’s national media, but in Israel, the subject is taboo. In recent days, that taboo has been brought into the open, following news that a high-profile television and radio presenter, Avi Talmor, traveled to Switzerland to end his life with the help of assisted dying group, Dignitas.
Talmor wrote a series of accounts, explaining his decision, which goes against Israeli law and the Jewish faith.
