Pashkevil: Internet equals....

The latest pashkevils around Yerushalayim (that is, the latest ones not discussing the Zionists stealing babies form haredim)

Internet = Cancer, as both have the numerical value of 319. (so does "boker tov" - I wonder how that fits in... "shgiah" - "mistake" also equals 319...)

The sign says the corresponding numerical value is not by chance, but is from Hashem (what isn't?).. With 160,000 cancer patients in Israel, how is it that you are not afraid?

I have no idea if they made up that number of 160,000 or if it is real... I tried to do some basic research (i.e. google searches using different terms), and came up with a variety of numbers of cancer patients in Israel.


  1. Chasser "yud".

  2. I noticed it too, but I guess correct spelling of a "made up" word can be debated...

  3. I think the most obvious cause of cancer is the Layl Shabbos טיש.

    (Hattip: Shimon Lerner

  4. I saw this one a few days ago... I feel pretty bad for all of those elderly cancer patients suffering because of the a bunch of 15 year olds on twitter...

  5. Shaul B - cool - tish is also 319...

  6. mikeage - someone just emailed me the pic today. but maybe those older cancer patients were also using the internet....probably not twitter though.

  7. I think we are witnessing a fundamental change in the religious community; the zealots are exhausting their storehouse of venom, all the people are witnessing this, and maybe from now on there will be a 'regime change'.


  8. Hello!

    I just found your blog via Elliot Jaffe's blog.

    Very thought provoking posts. I can't wait to read more.

    Thank you.


  9. I think we are witnessing a fundamental change in the religious community; the zealots are exhausting their storehouse of venom...

    What I'm waiting to see is the rebelliousness of that community, turned inward. In other words they've institutionalized societal disobedience with rioting as their primary means of communication. Only one more step before they ignore their leaders (or their leaders' leaders) as well.

  10. But personally, while waiting for the charedi fanatics to drift into history, I'd like to move a little closer to what's going right in the world.

  11. I don't mean that kind of right....

  12. The was cancer long before there was internet. And the internet is being used in many ways to help fight cancer.

    But if gematrias are true, I take comfort in the fact that my Hebrew name has the same gematria as תמים היה בדורותיו.

  13. I just realized, pashkevil=pashk + evil.

  14. This is more propaganda; and a manipulation of Torah and belongs with the other fetish about getting women to cover up with shawls and tons of material like the RBS woman. With all this separatism, you wonder why there is so much abuse of little boys, and women/mothers mistreating/abusing their children. Just doesn't add up.

    The pure religious homelife based on sound halacha is being shoved aside for fanatacism. Some members who mean well, are going off the deep end. They blame ALL the current ills on the way Jewish girls and women dress themselves.
