(By the way, I discovered The Jewish Press two years ago and devour every issue. You do such an enormous service in telling the uncomfortable truth. The Jewish weeklies here in California are so bland and politically correct – and from what I’ve seen when visiting friends and relatives, the same can be said for Jewish papers all over the country. Keep fighting the good fight.)

Our Own Worst Enemies
“Miriam Shear says she was traveling to pray at the Western Wall in Jerusalem’s Old City early on November 24 when a group of ultra-Orthodox men attacked her for refusing to move to the back of the Egged No. 2 bus. She is now in touch with several legal advocacy and women’s organizations, and at the same time, waiting for the police to apprehend her attackers.”

Empathy For A Hurting Mother
I hope the lady who wrote the Rebbetzin will contact MARCH. I have been thinking of her and mentioning her in my davening every day. Of course, she too can pour out her heart to Hashem.
