Does She Understand? I Think She Does

I can’t blame these people for seeing women that way, it's how they are raised-I blame the Hashkafa

Motives…

Pashkevil: "Come out today and battle the Zionist Amalek and all the traitors in Nahal Haredi..."

Mr. Abutbul: Tear Down that Wall!

1st thing that must be done: tear down that wall; 2nd thing: allocate empty classrooms to Charedim.

What Will the Future of Judaism Look Like?

We all got degrees. We got married. We had families. We worked. We and were Koveih Itim

Keeping Haredim Excited About Torah

It is in our best interest to find new ways to infuse life and vitality into observant life.

Images of ‘the Other’

Images of ‘the other’ are heavily biased by what the media report about them.

Whose Values Do They Represent?

I don’t know that the majority of the Haredi world actually considers memorials to IDF fallen soldiers to be idolatry.

God’s Army

Don’t think that secular Israelis are not just as divided as anyone else.

A Haredi Role Model

A Haredi organization helps Haredim be brought up to speed to meet the challenges of the modern work place.

More Religious? Or Going Off the Deep End?

They want to have total isolation from the rest of the world? I think perhaps we should finally give it to them. It pains me to say so but based on what I am reading in their very own media, going off the deep end is not an exaggeration. It may even be an understatement! It is a wonder that they do not have a bigger OTD problem than they already do. I guess that their system works very well for them that way.

The Rabbi’s Daughter

Several prominent Religious Zionist rabbis in Israel have fallen victim to the OTD (Off the Derech) phenomenon. Rav Shlomo Aviner, Rav David Bigman, and Rav Yoram Tzohar each have a daughter that has departed from the observant ways of their parents. So for those parents who have OTD children, you are not alone. There are some very prominent people who join you. One may ask: How can I publicize something like this about such prominent leaders in Klal Yisroel, since it might be embarrassing to them? The answer is that they do not hide it. They willingly participated in a film that tells their story.

Is This Man a Charedi Hater?

In its most recent edition, Ami Magazine has accused Professor Samuel Heilman - a distinguished Professor of Sociology at Queens College of hating Charedim. I am all too familiar with accusations like this as I am often accused of being a Charedi hater myself. But the truth is that neither I nor Professor Heilman are such a thing.

Reflections on My Trip to Israel

Despite some of my early negative observations - it still seemed like there was a tremendous sense of Achdus in many respects. The Shul I davened at was very Charedi and yet a great number of regular attendees there are Dati Leumi - Kipa Seruga, no jacket or hat. Even an occasional Israeli solider in full uniform can be found catching a Minyan there. All are welcome.

The Downside of Religious Idealism

Why is there so much animosity between Charedi and Dati Leumi/Religious Zionist factions? I can't fully answer the question. But I do have some thoughts about it. I think it is because Israelis are far more idealistic about their religious values - especially those who make Aliyah.

Unholy Behavior

The enmity I have observed between groups here in the holy land has been a source of great disappointment to me. Not that I didn’t know it exists. But I have encountered numerous instances of it I and did not realize the extent of it.

There’s Still Something Wrong with this Picture

Charedi schools like Darkei Sarah now realize that the Charedi family can no longer survive on the kinds of menial jobs women can get without a decent education.

The Emes Ve-Emunah People

The Emes Ve-Emunah blog recently ran an internal poll as to readers religious leanings, here blog author Harry Maryles analyzes the results.

The Road Paved with iPhones

There are many Halachic reasons to disqualify a witness. Owning an iPhone is not one of them.

The Winds of Mysticism

The mysticism of Sephardim and Chasidus seems to be making in-roads. Especially with mainstream rabbinic figures supporting it. I sure hope this is only a passing fad.

One Judaism, Two Perspectives on Dressing Modesty

Modern Orthodox and Chassidic cultural norms may differ, but members of both communities have a respect for Halachah and desire to serve God.

Why Modern Orthodoxy?

The truth is that Orthodox Jews are all lumped together as having the same attitudes in life. So that for example a Chasidic Jew in Williamsburg will be treated the same way a Modern Orthodox Jew in Teaneck. They are both seen as Orthodox and their worldviews are more or less seen to be the same: decidedly anti-modern. But this viewpoint doesn't reflect the reality.

As the Pendulum Swings – Ever Rightward

Fact is there is of course nothing wrong with raising standards of religious observance. As long as it is voluntary. But when schools start making new demands along those lines, they completely ignore individual choice. Being Machmir should be an individual choice and not forced upon anyone. These strictrures have nothing to do with basic Halacha. They have to do with image.

The Wrong Stuff of the Right

I recently saw a picture of the first Agudah convention taken almost 100 years ago. There were people in all manner of dress: light suits, dark suits, vests… some had hats, some caps, some just plain Kipot. Many clean shaven, few with peyos… All were there and all were the equivalent of the Charedi world we have today. This was the Agudah of Yesteryear.

Eytan Kobre’s Anti-Religious Rant

If the draft is going to be equally applied, religious sensitivities must be guaranteed to all. This means that the infrastructure must be created and enforced so that Charedim will be able to practice Judaism as they best understand it. The bottom line for me is that no Charedi mother should ever be faced by a Chiloni or Religious Zionist mother asking the question, “Why did my son have to die in battle while your son was safe in a Yeshiva?”

Conversions – The Supreme Court Decides?

Emes v'Emuna Blog: One of the sadder chapters to be written about the State of Israel will be what is happening with regard to conversions.
