Tweet of the Day

Amsalem calls them the exceptions. Maybe he is right and they are, or maybe he is wrong and they are not. Either way, Amsalem says a group of yeshiva bochurim from the Mir Yeshiva staye das guests for Shabbos on the army base  of Nahal Haredi, and attaches a picture to that effect..

A lot is made of the "Chardak" campaign and every time a Haredi soldier gets attacked by Haredim, so it is nice to point out when Haredim show respect and admiration.

  1. Isn't it sick that the creator of the Chardak campaign has gone off the derech? (Officially that is - I'm of the belief that most of the hooligans who run under purity-of-the-camp type banners are already off the derech.)

  2. IMO, the silent majority do respect soldiers. Admire, depends, not sure if we need to 'admire'.

    It's the Haredi leadership that is rightfully worried about the unknown consequences of openly welcoming the intrusion of military admiration. I heard Rav Shmuel Eliyahu relate of a rosh yeshivah (DL) that confided with him that when he brings top rabbis to speak, there is natural respect given, but when some officer comes to speak, the kind with the latest gun and accessories and decorated with pins and other emblems, the students are gushing and fawning.

  3. Makes me think of the story about the collection of baseballs signed by Rabbanim...
