Judy and the Big City - Ep.4

"We're used to being together all the time," media personality and socialite Judy Mozes tells her partner Avi Rotenberg moments before he leaves her for the first time since the two embarked on an open-ended journey to New York together. "You'll get some freedom, maybe you'll even miss me a bit," he responds with a smile.

Mozes decided to leave it all behind and start fresh in the big city, where she is now adapting to her new life. To ease the move, her friends from Israel come to visit, but it turns out she is not the only reason, and it's not just about shopping either: Many women fly to the other side of the ocean to get injections from a specific doctor in New York.

"I want to see who their magician is," says Mozes before she tries to get to the bottom of Dr. Joel Kassimir his magic secret. (Spoiler: "They're used to me," he humbly says.)
"I am very much in favor of doing injections because I believe that anything that can improve appearance and aesthetics is important," says Judy, admitting that she gets injections herself.
However, she stresses that, like everything good in life, you shouldn’t go overboard with it. “I am in favor of plastic surgery for those who need it, but you go overboard with it when you look like a skeleton and your face doesn't move. It's not real or natural, then you're just throwing the baby out with the bathwater. You need to look good, it's important to look good, but don’t overdo it.”
After experiencing intense longing for her homeland in the previous episode following a video she received from friends, Judy caught a little sense of home when her close friend, television presenter Lucy Aharish, pays her a visit.

"It's such fun that you came to New York," she declares, and the two embark on a shopping spree, that while Judy didn’t find it too exciting, Lucy quickly reminded her that she is still a tourist and only visiting on Independence Day, marking her first time away from Israel on this date which she holds dear to her heart as she participated in the traditional Independence Day torch-lighting ceremony in 2015.
"Today, do you think they would let you? Would Miri (Regev) let you?" Judy teases Aharish, who admits she doesn't know how to respond to that.
Amid conversations about shopping and torchlighting, Aharish notices that Judy doesn't have a mezuzah on her doorpost, prompting the media personality to promptly send her partner to address the matter.
