    would this be kosher. Jes' cuz' you find the sensetivities of these Hasidim a little off-sides, that doesn't mean you have to trash them on the pages of HaAretz. First off, they are not anti-Zionists. In fact, by the "Old Man"'s definition they are Zionists cuz' they live in the Land of Israel, though, FYI, some Haredim have problems with the issue of visiting the gravesites of Sainted Rabbis outside of "the country", and there are those rabbis who outright forbid the practice. In this month of Elul, when we are expected to show compassion, let's say consideration for our fellow Jewish brothers and sisters, the idea of putting any Jew to shame is off-sides. Just as we want to be forgiven for our misdeeds, and the things we did "without thinking", it seems that some Jews in this country have forgotten that principle. It seems that anything that makes Haredim, and otherwise Halachically Observant Jews an object of scorn and ridicule is acceptable. It's time to cut the c. . . and start leaning to live in the nation not as a sector here and a sector there, but as "a nation" whose fate is bound together, in spite of our differences.
