Court Releases Two Youths Detained in Church Arson Case

Tuesday, July 28th, 2015

(JNi.media) On Sunday, Nazareth Magistrate Court released two youths who were detained on suspicion of involvement with the June 18 arson at the Bread and Fish Church north-west of the Sea of ​​Galilee, Honenu legal aid society reported.

The youths, who deny all connection to the incident, were held under harsh conditions in a Shin Bet facility for some 10 days, according to the report. Police requested that the youths be released conditionally, and the court ordered them kept under house arrest for two weeks, and prohibited them from contacting other suspects in the case.

Honenu accused the Shin Bet of using harsh interrogation techniques, which included humiliation and threats. Interrogation sessions were carried out for many hours every day, with the boys being shackled to a chair.

The boys were kept in a small cell that lacked minimal conditions, with the light kept on constantly.

The remand of three other suspects has been extended and the Attorney General’s office announced that it would file an indictment against two of them. One of them is suspected of damaging the church and the other of assisting in carrying out the act.

Honenu attorney Aharon Roza, representing one of the released detainees, stated, “I am pleased with the release of the detainee who was held, through no fault of his own, in remand under inhumane and humiliating remand conditions. I demand that it be clear that his release indicates that he does not have any connection to carrying out the act attributed to him.”

Honenu attorney Yuval Zemer, who is representing the other released detainee, said that “from the outset we pleaded that the detainees do not and did not have any connection to the serious crimes attributed to them. We, of course, are pleased with the release, but are saddened by the fact that the detainees were forced to suffer, for approximately 10 days, under harsh remand conditions, brutal interrogations, and severe violations of their basic rights, when today there is no doubt that there was no justification for the remand.”

Pesach at the Kinar

Sunday, April 27th, 2014

The Wife and I have been debating – what was our favorite part of staying at the Kinar Resort over Pesach?

Was it the overabundance of good food? The great service? That most of the guests were Americans (some very strangely holding 2 Sederim and keeping 8 days of Chag while in Eretz Yisrael)? That we were right on the Kinneret lake? Free wi-fi. That it’s a great jumping off point for all the Tiyulim (day trips) we were doing?

Nope. All that was good and fine, but that wasn’t the best part.

The best part was that we didn’t see our kids (except for trips and meals) for the entire week. I don’t think we heard “we’re bored” even once (well maybe once).

I know the hotel likes to market itself as the resort for religious people and Hareidim, and they think that this is their biggest selling point (and it is important), but it’s not just that. They had Pesach programs and activities for the kids that kept them so busy all the time, that it gave us adults time to actually relax and actually enjoy our vacation – and I think that’s an even better selling point.

How often does that happen?

The hotel has a massive lawn, huge. It reminded me of the Catskills (except for the palm trees and exotic green birds flying around).

The hotel brought in an entire mini-carnival with rides and jumping balloons that kept the kids busy for hours. And when the kids weren’t at the carnival, they were on the swings and slides.

Jumping at the Kinar

If that wasn’t enough, there was an arts and crafts camp, organized basketball games, ping pong and soccer tournaments, not to mention story telling, ice cream, and God knows what else.

Rides at the Kinar

Children’s paradise.

So what did that mean for us adults?

First of all, it meant we were able to enjoy our meals. Because you can never eat enough on Pesach.

Though I will admit I found one aspect of the meals quite amusing.

The hotel caters to a wide range of religious people (this particular crowd ranged from typical Young Israel to Yeshivish black hat, with a Chossid and Hiloni or two thrown in for good luck).

The dining room’s buffet provided different meat stands with clearly marked Kashrut certifications (Machfud, Rubin, Beit Yosef, etc.), so everyone could select which Rabbi’s Hashgacha they were happiest with (I have absolutely no idea who’s Hashgacha it was, but trust me, the steak and hamburgers were excellent).

They even had a stand with Matzah Brei (Oy Gebrochts!).

A piece of advice, if you can, talk to the Maitre D about getting a window seat, it’s such a pleasure to sit and eat while watching the lawn and the lake.

Our rooms were nice, and relatively big for Israeli rooms. Not ultra-fancy, but certainly clean and well appointed. They also have bungalows right on the grass, as well as ground floor rooms that lead right onto the main lawn. I didn’t get to see what the bungalows look like from the inside.

Kinar Room

The hotel has a basketball and tennis court, a small workout room, and an outdoor swimming pool.

My advice, the pool is cool, but instead, go to the pool area, grab a few towels, walk across the lawn, and jump into the Kinneret. Well, don’t jump, walk down the path into the super-clear water, and then jump in. (And don’t forget to bring the towels back).

The water is much warmer, and it’s a lot more fun.

The hotel has a separate beach for men and women, and off to the side, past the fishing pier is a (shhh) mixed beach.

Vacation Space Available in Kineret Hotels

Friday, October 25th, 2013

In wake of the series of small earthquakes that recently hit Tiberias, Kineret Hotels managers are reporting that many dozens of Tel Aviv residents have cancelled their vacations in Tiberias.

Roni Manor, the general manager of the Nof Ginnosar hotel told Makor Rishon that yesterday a group of 25 Tel Avivians called and cancelled their stay this weekend, because “they’re afraid of an earthquake”.

Manor told the group that they’re crazy, “They live in Tel Aviv, the main target of Iran’s nukes, and they’re afraid of some tremors!”

Manor said, the country’s scared, because the media is creating panic.

So we’ll take the other route at JewishPress.com, if you want to go away this weekend (and aren’t going to Hebron for Parshat Chayei Sarah), check it out, you might be able to get good rates right now at a Tiberias hotel.
