Have you put on tefillin, brother?


Two secular Israeli internet stars, whatever that means, have put out a new smartphone app to help people put on tefillin.

Sounds strange? It does to me, but they say that because they are secular, they talk to the Israeli general public in their language. Being secular, one with tattoos and the other with piercings and still able to do this mitzva, the young people see that and decide they also can and there is nothing wrong with it.

They decided to do this to bring people closer to Hashem, to say thank you. Nowadays we connect quickly to things that are not important but forget to take the five minutes just to say thank you.

The new app, called הנחת אחי? - have you put [tefillin] on yet today, brother? - can be set to remind you at whatever frequency you wish to put on tefillin - daily, weekly, specific days, how many reminders and warnings to get... The app also has other features and challenges, and it can be used to help find a nearby shul, it connects you with friends and other people who also put tefillin on from whom you can borrow tefillin if you don't have your own, etc.

very cool



Here is a link to the app on Google Play Store

I am sure the Chabadniks would not mind this competition

Lawsuit over a pot of leftover cholent

There was a court case in Northern Israel that was the result of a fight that broke out in shul over a pot of cholent.

According to the reporter on Twitter, the fight started over a pot of leftover cholent after Shabbos that the Gabbai threw in the garbage. For some reason, this led to fisticuffs and smashed eyeglasses and a broken cellphone, and approximately two years later ended in court with the judge writing an 18 page decision and concluding it with a song.

Sounds weird. It really does. And the details are sketchy.

According to Ynet, the judge decided that the incident had not been investigated properly and the evidence and testimony is clearly not accurate. The case seems to be the result of a fight in the shul between two "camps" - the newer members against the older members.

The judge left it with a no decision, but was highly critical of their behavior in shul and her dismay at the turning of a shul into a battleground when it is supposed to be a "mikdash me'at". She included a song or poem written by a legal academic about the situation of fights in shul as food for thought.

Hagit Moshe wins primary of party that should just go away

Congratulations to Hagit Moshe on winning the primaries for the head of the Habayit Hayehudi party yesterday.

I do not know much about Hagit Moshe but I am sure she is talented and experienced, coming from the City Council of Jerusalem and expect she will leave her mark on Habayit Hayehudi and lead them well in the coming period. Her victory is especially notable as she is currently the only woman heading a political party for the upcoming elections. I say "currently" because Merav Michaeli might soon join her as head of a party if she wins the upcoming Labor primaries.


The unfortunate reality of Habayit Hayehudi (not of Hagit Moshe) is that they have no real purpose in politics or in government, and do not even have any real independence, and maybe not even much of an identity any longer. 

There are 3 mainstream National Zionist parties (Habayit Hayehudi, Ichud Leumi and Yamina - if Yamina counts) that will be splitting the vote, along with Likud and maybe Tikva Chadasha.

How true it is I do not know, but all the reports about the Habayit Hayehudi primaries, in advance and after, all spoke about How this was really a contest between Bennett and Netanyahu, with Bennett pushing his guy Nir Orbach and Netanyahu pushing Hagit Moshe (as more likely to merge or form a bloc with Smotritch and support Netanyahu for PM). The entire playing field of Habayit Hayehudi was really just a playground for external forces.

I feel bad for the,, but by now Habayit Hayehudi really seems to have no role to fill other than to siphon voters for a couple other politicians. They are one of these parties, along with perhaps Labor, that should be relegated to history.
