Netanyahu: If you like your Torah and your settlement home, you can keep your Torah and your settlement home

I used to trust Netanyahu's words, but now I trust him as much as I do President Obama with his statement on healthcare.

Netanyahu lied re: keeping the integrity of the Land of Israel and he lied regarding no criminal sanctions against those who wish to learn Torah instead of joining the army.  Should we trust him?

Here are some more interesting developments:

(Religious Zionist rabbis want to participate in the "Million Man Gathering")

New Date for ‘Million Man Atzeres’: Rosh Chodesh Adar II
Organizers feel that due to the fact the event is under the auspices of all the Moetzos Gedolei Yisrael, of Shas, Degel Hatorah and Agudas Yisrael, it is realistic to expect 600,000 participants or more. Organizers explain, as was heard in radio interviews with dati leumi rabbonim on chareidi stations in recent days, if the event is truly billed as an “atzeres tefilla”, then one may expect participation from some of the dati leumi community for many of these rabbonim are opposed to the draft of bnei yeshivos too. Removing the political addresses from the agenda will bring additional participants, they feel. This is the path that was chosen by Maran HaGaon HaRav Aaron Yehuda Leib Shteinman Shlita, who has explained the atzeres is an outcry to HKBH over the Chilul Hashem pertaining to the draft law, without concerns of how this will be received by the media or state officials.

As such, this will be an atzeres tefilla only and there will not be a bimah since there will not be any speeches, just the recitation of Tehillim. There will be a small podium for the person reciting tehillim.

("Due to the Decree of the Draft and John Kerry: Rav Meir Mazuz calls for a Fast Day")

He is calling for a fast day and Yom Kippur Katan services on Thursday before Rosh Hodesh - which is tomorrow.

("Instructions of Maran Rav Aharon Leib Shteinman to the "Million Man Gathering": Women and children - only from Yerushalayim")

Rav Shteinman Shlit"a wants women and children there, but only those from Yerushalayim and only children over the age of 9.  Women from outside Yerushalayim should read Tehillim from their homes.

Thanks for the update, Yaak. You should hear what Rabbi Mendel Kessin says about Netanyahu.

I'm glad they moved it back up to Rosh Chodesh. I have a feeling we're about to see a major breakthrough in the geula process and you know, Netanyahu is meeting with Obama the very next day.

Out of curiosity...
It says in the paper that, "Sunday afternoon, 1 Rosh Chodesh Adar II 5774, apparently to begin at 16:00"

16:00 when, Israeli time I'm assuming?

Personally I would want to say tehillim with them at the same time even though I'm in the states. Is that around 9am in the states?

"The states" is a big place, but if you are on the east coast or close by, then yes, 9AM. If you live in Chicago, then 8AM. If in Denver, 7AM. On the west coast, 6AM.

Whoops forgot to mention the timezone, but yes it's eastern coast so that's 9am. Thanks!
