The Knesset passed into law on Tuesday a requirement that at least four women be included on the committee that elects rabbinical court rabbis....
To passersby on Sunday, the crowd had a simple message, one that rings sympathetically to American ears.
Police prepared for the monthly event, and from a law-and-order perspective it made perfect sense.
Women of the Wall plan their monthly Rosh Chodesh prayers at the Kotel the second day of the month, with a Torah scroll. It’s okay to make up rules as they go along, so long as the Orthodox don’t make the rules.
In 1995, “everyone” knew settlers murdered Rabin. The “settler” Yigal Amir was from the Haifa area. Four years ago, gays accused Haredi gay-haters for killing three homosexuals. Now police say, “Not so.”
"We will find ourselves in a negative spiral … that could literally slam the door on a two-state solution, having already agreed, I think, that there isn’t a one-state one."
It can be argued whether the Women of the Wall are spiritual angels, but no sane person could accuse them of threatening rabbis to approve their agenda or face death. So who is behind the dirty work?
“You don’t have to send delegations to Hungary to witness raw antisemitism.”
Remember Hamas missiles on Israeli cities? Remember last year’s bloated deficit? Haredi MKs don’t. Everything was great, they say, until Lapid’s universal draft, which turned Syria against Israel.
Similar attacks have occurred at other synagogues in the vicinity.
The decision to play this kind of hardball came from Lapid.
Jewish Home Minister Uri Orbach announced Monday night on his Facebook page that he supports Rabbi David Stav, who is part of the Tzohar...
Lapid’s sounds like Bibi on the “peace process.” He has no trouble raising a regressive tax that hurts the middle class. But give the Haredim a break from the draft? Not in this government. We’ll see.
There will be no trucks coming to transfer them to prison.
The recommendations determine new rules for sharing the security burden equally.
Lapid is beginning to smell like a rose thanks to Haredi tycoons. He is taking yeshivas off the government dole and balancing the budget. How will yeshivas survive? The tycoons have an answer - money.
Vandals spray painted the Jerusalem home of a long-time board member of the Women of the Wall (WOW) with vicious graffiti, the first time...
A group of consumers headed by a Haredi woman is looking to sue Tnuva for consumer anguish.
The media accentuate the negative and violent acts of a very small minority, over the mature and calm behavior of the vast majority of Haredim.
The committee did not invite even one, single Haredi woman to testify.
The demonstrators rallied "against the evil decree of conscription."
Justice Minister Tzipi Livni and Religious Affairs Minister Yair Lapid, who doubles as Finance Minister, are arguing via Facebook over the issue of a...
JERUSALEM – Rabbi Shlomo Amar, Israel’s current Sephardi chief rabbi whose 10-year term is set to expire in the coming months, and Ramat Gan Chief Rabbi Yaakov Ariel, a leading Ashkenazi rabbi, announced their intention to force a legal change in the chief rabbinate selection process.
UTJ and WOW argue over the halacha of women's prayer on the radio -- can Mashiach be too far?
Israel's Justice Minister Tzipi Livni ordered her ministry on Thursday to draft legislation that would make the gender-based segregation of women illegal. "Discrimination against women...
