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.
