Do what you want in Tel Aviv

Rav Mazuz called on the Haredi MKs to fight to the end against the Kotel deal that is meant to grant a space for prayer to the Reform groups. He told them not to worry, even if necessary to bring down the government for this..

That much I get and can appreciate.

The part I find confusing is when he says in wonderment how they are "charging" on Jerusalem, as if it interests them when it never did before and they considered it an "old grandmother that should be given an honorable burial. Rav Mazuz says that they should leave Jerusalem alone and make for themselves a Kotel in Tel Aviv and they can do there whatever they want..

Really? The Haredi MKs are instructed to let them do whatever they want in Tel Aviv? They can have their buses on Shabbos and build their temples and the Haredi MKs will leave them be?

I was not aware that this is the Haredi position, or maybe Rav Mazuz is simply disagreeing on that with all the other rabbonim telling the Haredi MKs what to do about the fights in Tel Aviv..

Rabbi Yona Metzger loves prison life

According to an interview with the new broadcasting agency Kaan, Rabbi Metzger seems to really be enjoying hsi time in prison.

Metzger is in what is considered the "VIP" ward of Maasiyahu prison and says he is living the good life and as happy as can be.

According to his responses in the interview, Rabbi Metzger says conditions there are better than in a dormitory and far better than conditions on reserve duty. He has an air conditioned beis medrash to learn in with comfy furniture and nobody bothering him. Everybody gets along, comes to davening, eats together, cooks together.... and the food is amazing and there are chefs there making food that even at home he has nothing like.

I hope his wife is not insulted by how he happy he is in prison, especially with the food but also with all the other conditions he is so impressed with.

Maybe he is just being positive and trying to make the best of a bad situation. Or maybe prison really isn't that bad - at least not in the VIP ward.

according to COL Live:
9-year-old Chaim Brikman of Crown Heights enjoys a 4-gallon Slurpee at 7-Eleven's "bring your own cup day"

how can anybody even drink that much, let alone before it all melts? and if he can possibly drink it fast enough before it melts, that would probably cause the worst brain freeze ever!

Facebook Status of the Day



Being that Steven Tyler is not Jewish, he would have to either convert (with a Rabbanut approved Rabbi) or get some sort of special dispensation like some athletes get in order to be able to play in Israel..

female kindergarten teachers are a new invention

looks like Rav Shmuel Auerbach is making changes to the extreme, and not just regarding appearing before the IDF draft board.

Rav Auerbach instructed a boys school under his authority to relieve all female nursery school teachers (ganenet/ganenot) from their duties and replace them with male rebbes instead.

The surprised parents complained to the principal who went back to Rav Auerbach for clarification. He asked Rav Auerbach to clarify as the situation is one of very young children, even prior to learning "aleph beis" and it not being a situation of women teaching torah but just relating stories form the parsha, and the women are God-fearing..

Rav Auerbach answered definitively that they must be replaced with male rebbes as having female teachers for boys is a new reality that was never before acceptable and the influence even at such a tender young age is immeasurable.

It is a matter of hashkafa and not specific to this or that teacher, as fine as they might be.
source: Haredim10

I would hope his girl schools do not have male principals or teachers, as the influence of inter-gender teaching and  mingling goes both ways...

(as an aside, I would like to see his history books to see what else is considered new and never before acceptable)

The Jerusalem Dress

I am not one to normally comment on women's fashion, but this is something I have to mention and offer my respect.

Minister Miri Regev decided to honor the 50th anniversary of the recapturing of Jerusalem at the Cannes Festival with a dress specially designed with the images of Jerusalem on it.


Regev also called for masses of people to go to Har Habayit, in honor of Yom Yerushalayim.

Respect.

If I forget thee, O Jerusalem...
