Police prepared for the monthly event, and from a law-and-order perspective it made perfect sense.
The circumcision had actually been performed flawlessly, and apparently baby choked during feeding.
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.”
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?
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.
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 demonstrators rallied "against the evil decree of conscription."
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...
What's the secret of this city that's growing faster than most, while few of its residents are happy with the amenities?
Hitler wanted to exterminate Jews. Lapid only wants to exterminate the Haredi habit of not to work or serve in the IDF. That is enough for a Haredi columnist to compare Lapid’s and Hitler’s speeches.
Approximately Jerusalem residents, including Meretz party supporters, protested on front of City Hall Saturday night against a plan to close a new movie theater...
