Havana Curveball - Trailer (video)

this looks like something I'd like to see...

Havana Curveball - Trailer from PatchWorks Films on Vimeo.
The trailer for HAVANA CURVEBALL -- the latest documentary by award-winning filmmakers Marcia Jarmel & Ken Schneider. Executive produced by Marc Smolowitz. Projected completion - early 2014. Learn more online at http://www.HavanaCurveball.info.

ABOUT THE FILM: Mica is a classic young teen. Enthusiastic. Idealistic. Dreaming baseball. At 13, he is studying for his Bar Mitzvah, the Jewish coming of age rite. An earnest kid, he took to heart his Rabbi’s requirement to help “heal the world.” Imagining himself a savior of sorts, he launches a grand plan to send baseballs to Cuba, a country with a mysterious pull. He knows only that Cubans are poor and love baseball -- and that Cuba saved his grandpa’s life. On a hunch, his award-winning filmmaker parents pick up their camera. They know the U.S. embargo with Cuba will throw him a curveball.

hear Amir Chetzroni, on your local Haredi radio show

Amir Chetzroni will be co-hosting a talk show on the radio with Itamar Ben Gvir. Their show will be on Radio Kol BeRama, a Haredi radio station, because Galei Tzahal turned Chetzroni down and would not even meet with him to discuss it.
The show will be on tomorrow morning, Thursday, at 11am.
source: NRG

This was a funny announcement. I imagine they said yes to Chetzroni because they assume it will bring in good ratings. Chetzroni is sensationalist, and either people will boycott him because of the mean and racist things he says or they will come in droves to hear his latest idiocy.

The weird thing is that I thought Chetzroni recently moved to Germany. Did he move back to Israel so quickly? Did they kick him out of Germany? I do not know what happened, but this is a surprise to me.

I would guess Kol Berama agreed to d this in order to try to boost their sinking ratings. It seems they are continuously losing listeners to Radio Kol Hai, especially since Kol Hai opened a similar morning show to talk politics, in the same slot as Kol BeRama's show. I think in the end they will most likely get hurt by this. In the short term they might boost some ratings, but after he upsets a few more people, Kol Berama will suffer for hosting him.

Kid fined for talking on phone while riding bike


A kid in Elad was riding his bike in the street while talking on his cellphone.. or maybe he was talking on his cellphone while riding his bike.... either way, he got pulled over by a policeman as this is against the law.

The cop wrote him up and gave the kid a ticket with a fine for 1000nis!

In the ticket the policeman writes that the kid was talking without an earpiece or speaker, endangering cars in the road.

The kid refused to sign the ticket, and he stated that next year he would be bar mitzva. Maybe that means next year he will pay with the money he brings in from bar mitzva gifts?
source: Kikar

I am not quite sure how this works. How do you give a kid a ticket? How does he identify himself - children do not bear identity cards.. how does the cop know the name he gave them was his true name and not made up on the spot? How do they enforce payment of the fine?

Neetanyahu rehashes old promises to keep the DL happy

I have not paid too much attention to what happened with those houses in Bet El, why these were ordered to be demolished and others were not. It is clearly a legal dispute rather than a political one, but I don't really know the details.

That being said, as compensation for the need to demolish these houses, Netanyahu has ordered to grant immediate approval for the construction of 300 homes in Bet El, along with some more in different areas around Jerusalem. I heard Minister Zeev Elkin on the radio earlier this afternoon and he explained that it is not compensation for anything, but with the leftists fighting tooth and nail to get buildings demolished through the courts, the answer by the National Camp that was chosen by the people will be to build more. They can make us knock down 2 buildings, but we will build 300 more.

Very nice.

Except that it was discovered that the 300 buildings to be built immediately are the 300 Netanyahu already promised last time he dismantled houses in Bet El (when he cut those buildings out of the ground and moved them). So these 300 announced now are not new, just a statement that the old promise will be rehashed again.

I wonder if Netanyahu is trying to see how many times he can make the same promise and have the Habayit Hayehudi people repeatedly fall for it.

I don't know if this is an issue that should necessarily force them to bring down the government, or not, though in the old Mafdal days, this would have been the issue. It seems Bennet is trying to move Habayit Hayehudi away from the position that settlement construction is the number one issue for the DL politicians and community, as the threats seem to have come mostly from the Tekuma faction.

Whether it is or is not, the acceptance of a Netanyahu promise about this, when he has promised so many houses around different places that just never happened, and after the government formation in which Netanyahu basically broke his promises to them and treated them like a third wheel until nearly the last day, should definitely be taken with careful consideration. They should know in advance he won't come through in the end. They should know in advance that his promises need to be taken with a  shaker of salt.

Quote of the Day

We, the Litvishe community, are the largest sector of the Haredi public, and we can prove it. Therefore the balance of power needs to change [from the 60:40 relationship in favor of Agudas Yisrael]... We can run on our own and pass [the minimum threshold]....
We did not run on our own not because we were worried we wouldn't cross the threshold, but because those were the instructions we were given [by the gedolim]. I cannot tell you now if those instructions will continue..

  -- MK Moshe Gafni

Poem by Crown Heights Jewish Teen Goes Viral (video)

A Brooklyn teen's surprising poem has gone viral.

Chanie Gorkin, of Crown Heights, wrote the poem "The Worst Day Ever?" for a school assignment and it is now inspiring thousands around the world.

The poem is about a bad day, but when read from the bottom up, it is actually a poem about the "best day ever."

Chanie's mother posted the poem in a contest, and it then made its way through social media.

She says that her daughter was influenced by growing up in a Chassidic community where she was taught to see the positive in everything. She also says that Chanie is very private and at first hated all the attention her poem received.

Chanie's mother also says that her daughter hopes people take inspiration from her poem and pay it forward by doing something nice to another person.




and here is the poem:

Worst Day Ever?

by Chanie Gorkin


Today was the absolute worst day ever
And don't try to convince me that
There's something good in every day
Because, when you take a closer look,
This world is a pretty evil place.
Even if
Some goodness does shine through once in a while
Satisfaction and happiness don't last.
And it's not true that
It's all in the mind and heart
Because
True happiness can be attained
Only if one's surroundings are good
It's not true that good exists
I'm sure you can agree that
The reality
Creates
My attitude
It's all beyond my control
And you'll never in a million years hear me say 
Today was a very good day

Now read it from bottom to top, the other way,
And see what I really feel about my day
