Rabbinic human rights group T’ruah calls for transparency on donor money spent on settlements.17:48 08.10.15 | 1 comments
The Haredim are marked today by their increasing levels of stringencies, stringency upon stringency. No one is arguing that there are very powerful currents in Jewish tradition and Jewish law that are very oppossed to what this particular "rabbi" is spewing. And of course Jewish doctors and hospitals have, do and will work selflessly for all their patients. But among this group of which shapira is one, and this is a growing not dwindling number, they would indeed ask the question whether it was permissible for a Jew to break the Shabbat to save the life of a non-Jew, not a Jew, but a non-Jew. Thank God, this is not an opinion held by the majority of even religious Jews.
