Nine Years Since

It has been nine years since the Disengagement from Gaza. In the midst of an atmosphere of war, with the wail of sirens filling the air and a widespread sense of uncertainty as to whether we can rely on the decisions of those who are running our government, we have received a clear and painful reminder of the level of trust we can have in our elected leaders. Today it is Binyomin Netanyahu; nine years ago, it was Ariel Sharon. At the time, the issue of the day was the Disengagement, or, more accurately, the flight from Gush Katif.

The Murdered Boys- Time for the Tough Questions

Why was it the Shin Bet that discovered that one of the kidnapped boys had phoned the police? Was razing the murderers’ homes a wise move? Will the murders lead to an escalation of the violence? Why did the army prevent a group of hiking students, who were intimately familiar with the area, from participating in the searches? And was it that same group of students who ultimately found the bodies?

Living with the Mashgiach

Rav Noach Cheifetz spent many years living in Tzefas, the “city of the mekubalim,” where he spearheaded the kiruv movement during the years when very few people were involved in kiruv at all. Today, he lives in Yerushalayim and is one of the most sought-after speakers in the city’s yeshivos. The Yated was privileged to an exclusive audience with Rav Noach, who shared reminiscences about Ponovezh Yeshiva, Rav Chatzkel Levenstein zt”l, and his experiences of yesteryear. “It is impossible to describe how the mashgiach appeared on Shavuos,” says Rav Noach Cheifetz.

The American Ambassador To Israel Meets With Members Of The Knesset To Discuss Israeli Concessions

Over the past two weeks, Dan Shapiro, American ambassador to Israel, has been holding a series of marathon meetings with Knesset members from every party. His goal is to pave the way for presenting the American position that Israel must give in on some of its basic principles, as a result of the slowdown in the political process ceaselessly promoted by John Kerry. Both last week and two weeks ago, the ambassador and his staff, including the deputy ambassador and the consul general, came to the Knesset building for a series of prearranged meetings with members of the Knesset. He met with the most extreme right-wing political group, the Lobby for the State of Israel.

A Young Avreich and the Cigarette Battle in Israel

On Monday, the Economic Affairs Committee of the Knesset voted to adopt a compromise regarding cigarette advertisements in Israeli newspapers and other media. It is called a “compromise” because the Ministry of Health in general, and Minister of Health Yael German in particular, have been championing a lengthy, draconian legal initiative known as the “Proposed Law for Limiting the Advertising and Marketing of Tobacco Products (Amendment 7) of 5774 – 2013.” The law - or, to be more precise, the amendment to an existing law - includes a lengthy series of bans on advertising and other limitations to be placed on tobacco companies.
