Yesha Council Chairman Dani Dayan will endorse and campaign for Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and the Likud-Beitenu ticket, Ma’ariv has reported.

According to Ma’ariv, earlier today, Dayan sent a text message to the chairmen of the regional councils of Judea and Samaria to notifying that he will publicly endorse Netanyahu and that he step down from his position as Yesha Council Chairman to remove any conflict of interest.

In interview with Ma’ariv, Dayan explained that he feared that the left would unite and that with the help of President Shimon Peres who is tasked with choosing a party chairman to form a coalition, it would be the Left and not Netanyahu which would form a government.

Despite, the settlement freeze he said settlement construction is booming and despite the Bar Ilan speech, in which Netanyahu endorsed a demilitarized Palestinian state, he said a Palestinian state was not on the horizon.

“After everything,” Dayan said, “this was an excellent government for the settlements.”

    I guess he'd know better than I would but I would be curious as to how much construction went on INSIDE the "blocs" like Ariel and Gush Etzion, E1 and how much housing was built OUTSIDE of the blocs. Those numbers would tell you how serious Bibi has been about construction. Everyone (even Olmert, Peres and Livni etc) assumes that Israel will keep its big blocs even if it involves land swaps. What I'd like to know is how strategic towns like Beit El, Kiryat Arba, Elon Moreh, Shiloh, Itamar, and the communities in the Jordan Valley have fared in the last few years. I worry that Israel will "fill out" its main blocs and then engage in evacuating (i.e expelling) those communities on the outside of the wall: Gush Katif multiplied. If anyone has a link or data, I'd love to see it just for my own curiosity.

  2. HE DOES NOT KNOW BETTER. HE IS GETTING GOOD MONEY.
    WOULD YOU SELL OUT ERETZ YISRAEL FOR MONEY? WOULD YOU LIE FOR MONEY? HE WOULD

Yom Tov is about spending time with your family. And while for some families the big once-in-a-lifetime experience is great, for others something low key is the way to go.

A fascinating glimpse into the rich complexity of medieval Jewish life and its contemporary relevance had intriguingly emerged.

Dear Dr. Yael:

My heart is breaking; my husband’s friend has gotten divorced. While this type of situation is always sad, here I do believe it could have been avoided.

The plan’s goal is to provide supportive housing to 200 individuals with disabilities by the year 2020.

Despite being one of the fastest-growing Jewish communities in the U.S. – the estimated Jewish population is 70-80,000 – Las Vegas has long been overlooked by much of the Torah world.

She was followed by the shadows of the Six Million, by the ever so subtle awareness of their vanished presence.

Pesach is so liberating (if you excuse the expression). It’s the only time I can eat anywhere in the house, guilt free! Matzah in bed!

Now all the pain, fear and struggle were over and they were home. Yuli was safe and free, a hero returned to his land and people.

While it would seem from his question that he is being chuzpadik and dismissive, I wonder if its possible, if just maybe, he is a struggling, confused neshama who actually wants to come back to the fold.

I agree with the letter writer that a shadchan should respectfully and graciously accept a negative response to a shidduch offer.

Alternative assessments are an extremely important part of understanding what students know beyond the scope of tests and quizzes.
