D., who was released from prison this week, was incarcerated in one cell with six other girls; now she’s dreaming about the boy she met for a moment in the prisoners van.19:00 29.04.16 | 2 comments
I think Rabbi Hauptman is reading a good deal more into the election results than is actually there. The Orthodox monopoly over official Judaism in Israel was not at issue. Rather, the issue was whether Haredi Jews should be subject to being drafted, and the Zionist Orthodox, represented by the Jewish Home party, showed that they agreed with non-Orthodox Jews in that regard. However, they are no more willing than the Haredim to extend any form of legal recognition to the non-Orthodox denominations. Until such time as religious functionaries no long exercise governmental power, improbable as that may be given the ever-increasing percentage of the population that is Orthodox, and especially Haredi, nothing will change.
