the myth busters of Lev Tahor cult

I admit I am disappointed. 

it seems that the authorities in Mexico recently arrested a bunch of members of the Lev Tahor cult. After a few days of sitting in jail it seems they all escaped last night.

I grew up on television and movies that depicted Mexican prisons as cruel, dirty, and extremely harsh places that were practically impossible to break out of, and it always seemed like a non-violent person might not even survive such a prison.

If these cult members of Lev Tahor, not exactly the type of hardened violent criminal imagined as standard in a Mexican prison (though they are rapists and whatever else they do wrong) could break out of a Mexican prison so easily, what does that say abut all those depictions of Mexican prisons in Hollywood?

Very disappointing.

MK Porush and the Ukranian Traffic Jam

the pilgrimage to Uman this year for Rosh Hashana was supposed to be a logistical nightmare. Because of the war there are no flights in and out of Ukraine (besides for the air force jets of Russia and Ukraine). Pilgrims trying to go to Uman would have to fly in from wherever to a neighboring or nearby country, possibly take another domestic flight closer to the border with Ukraine, and then travel by land (buses, shuttles and cars) for 13+ hours to get to Uman.

According to reports, 20-25 thousand pilgrims were not deterred by all that and went anyway.

And dont forget, the way out is basically the same story but in reverse. And actually a bit worse - while coming in everyone went on staggered schedules, each traveling on his own timeline, leaving Uman happened for almost all 25 thousand people at once.

While I am not 100% clear on why, there is a major gridlock for the pilgrims leaving, and many have been sitting on the road for hours and by now even days, trying to get out of Ukraine. It is a massive traffic jam leading to the borders and probably some bureaucracy as well.

The news today reported that MK Meir Porush (UTJ) has gotten involved and has been pushing the Foreign Ministry and Defense officials to intervene assist with finding solutions to help the people trying to leave who are stuck at the borders.

With knowing just that sparse information, I must say that this is a big difference between the Haredi MKs form Shas and UTJ and most of the other MKs. Most MKs are, as the job role seems to require, working on the more macro level, setting policy, passing laws, and the like. In addition to all that, the Haredi MKs spend a lot of time actually helping individuals (and I am sure other MKs do as well, but the Haredi MKs see it as an integral part of their job - let me know if I am wrong) and dealing with micro issues. An MK dealing with a traffic jam in another country getting involved because Israeli citizens are there? I am not sure how many MKs would care enough or feel responsible enough t bother with it. this might be a good thing, and maybe some see it as a bad thing - so focused on assisting individuals makes them deficient perhaps in assisting on the greater levels, but I think that is part of why their communities love them so much.

Unilever threatens Israelis lifeblood

Unilever is one of the leading companies in Israel, or maybe the leading company in Israel, for selling consumer products. They are also largely behind a lot of the recent price hikes - they sell the most, so when they raise the prices, it affects the most, and then other companies follow suit. Whether it is justified or not but rising costs of raw materials is a different issue, but Unilever is behind a  lot of the consumer price increases in Israel.

Several supermarket chains have already stopped selling Unilever products because of the price hikes. They have refused to raise their prices on so many products and told Unilever so, but Unilever hasnt backed down. So some supermarkets have stopped selling their products.

Now Unilever is threatening Israel itself. They are threatening the lifeblood of Israelis. 


According to ICE, they are not impressed by the supermarkets threats to stop selling Unilever products and are now threatening back - if price increases do not get approved and accepted by the supermarkets they will simply refuse to manufacture products, including the Crembo.

The Crembo of Strauss, marketed by Unilever, is one of the greatest selling products in Israel. Not only is it one of Unilever's biggest products but it is also the most beloved product of Israelis, especially come winter time. And Unilever is threatening to simply stop making it, if the stores don't let them raise the price.

Israelis might have to make do with the Crembos of Rio and Feldman, and that might just be too much to ask for. Let's see who blinks first.

Something ironic I noticed is that when Ben & Jerry's recently scuffled with Israel, Jews around the world "boycotted" Ben & Jerry's, and waged a financial campaign against Unilever, while in Israel we continued to buy Ben & Jerry's as a way of supporting the local manufacturer who was fighting against the mothership. Now with Israelis fighting the price hikes, in Israel we are going to ban Unilever and Ben & Jerry's while around the world they are now satisfied that Israel won the scuffle and have gone back to investing in Unilever and consuming Ben & Jerry's...
