If Shabbes is the very foundation and guardian of Am Israel, then why

B’H Are the police fighting in the streets of Jerusalem with Shomer Shabbes Yidden over a car park which should be closed on Shabbat at least in Jerusalem? No wonder Messiah does not come. If we as Jews can not work peacefully and respectfully with each other, then what hope is there for the world?... Sign in to see full entry.

Just a mad poem about things and not particularly relevant but maybe

A Clean Slate Take up your broom Look around the room. Do you really need Those crumpled Coles dockets Out of date, 2 cents off for fuel? The Half eaten Challa from Shabbes (Maybe the pigeons do) because How often do you use breadcrumbs? Do you really need Those odd socks that have been sitting On... Sign in to see full entry.

'A part of being Jewish is being harassed for being Jewish...'

Thus spake a son of a friend of mine. This young man is currently studying in Yeshiva in Israel and is home in Australia for a few months. I was horrified. He went on to relate how at Crown Casino, people have made comments and he had had his kippa knocked off and when he went to the staff of the... Sign in to see full entry.

Yom Yerushali'im is nigh!

And seeing as it is so close I want to publish this story about the person who first blew the Shofar there at the wall after it had been liberated by the Israeli forces in 1967. What is sad is Moshe Dayan's attitude and actions at the placement of the Israeli flag and the Sefer Torah in the Ma'arat... Sign in to see full entry.

Another bit!

I was busy on my doctoral thesis. My deadline for the final two chapters was only a month away. We would be going overseas for the summer holidays in Israel once I had finished. One of our friends, a travel agent, had already procured tickets for us in mid-July. That was no easy feat with many tours... Sign in to see full entry.

A literary piece with an Israeli theme to come.

2. An experimental piece for a literary magazine. The journey began one sunny afternoon in May, when all things were settled and ordered in their rightful places. The trees along Dandenong Road, naked sentinels for summer’s passing and winter’s progress, stood shivering in the cool winds blowing in... Sign in to see full entry.

This is so sad and why?

I read this and shuddered for the woman who has lost her unborn child and now has to deal with the grief of being told she is solely responsible. Knowing the laws of Saudia Arabia I would guess it is very easy to break the law in Saudia Arabia if you are a woman, all you would have to do would be to... Sign in to see full entry.

Swine Flu and the Talmud

This was sent to me and I thought that I would share it. Very interesting and seems that swine flu is not a new thing in the world. Makes one quite breathless at the scope of Jewish learning in this world. TalmudDiscussesSwineFlu Sign in to see full entry.

Australia has taken a stand NO TO DURBAN Conference

which is an excuse to bash Israel. The previous Durban conference was astounding. Some of the most anti Semitic countries with the worst human rights records out point a finger or fingers at Israel and have a combined "let's bash Israel Conference." I am glad that many people will pull out of this... Sign in to see full entry.
