Interesting Psak: he gets the wedding dress

this is strange. Even the beis din thought so.

Maariv is reporting about a divorce case in the beis din of Haifa in which an unusual request was made.

Unfortunately, after just a few years of marriage the couple decided to divorce. They went to divorce court and the husband claimed that the wife had hidden a lot of money. The beis din instructed him to prepare two lists of value of items in the marriage, and she would choose one of the lists for the purpose of the division of assets.

It sounds like the husband was fine with that, but he threw in an additional condition that had the judges rubbing their eyes in bewilderment. He informed them that for their wedding he had purchased two wedding dresses for his wife-to-be. She obviously only wore one of the dresses and he was demanding that the second dress be returned to him.

The beis din ended up agreeing to his demand and said as part of the settlement he must be awarded one of the dresses.

What was she planning on doing with two wedding dresses? Why didn't they return one after she settled the other to be worn at the wedding? And what does he want specifically the dress for now? Why not demand the value of the dress?

Very strange

Members of Knesset that go to pay condolence calls to the families of terrorists who killed Israelis are not worthy of serving in the Knesset of Israel

  -- PM Benjamin Netanyahu, after learning about the MKs from Balad (part of the United Arab Party) who paid such condolence calls..

and that led to this Facebook post from Moshe Feiglin

Ronald Lauder: ‘A crime committed 80 years ago stains the world of art’ (video)



In a lecture in Zurich, World Jewish Congress President Ronald S. Lauder urged Switzerland to address the issue of art works stolen by the Nazis prior to and during World War II. “Switzerland can now set the gold standard,” Lauder said. He explained why in his view “a crime committed 80 years ago continues to stain the world of art today.” The event at the Kunsthaus Zürich was hosted by the Swiss Federation of Jewish Communities (SIG/FSCI), whose president, Herbert Winter, remarked in his introduction that it was important that Switzerland was now providing important resources for provenance research in museums.

new Hamas tank threatens entire region


This is funny. Hamas in Gaza claimed that they had successfully built a tank, made in part from components of old IDF equipment and tank parts they have captured over time. They even had it out on display for everyone to see and be proud of them..

Unfortunately for them, or fortunately, they turned themselves into a laughing stock. The fact that it was not a tank but some sort of prop made at least partially out of wood and even driving on regular wheels under the tank treads. This wouldn't even need an anti-tank missile to knock it out of commission - just a traffic light.

Here is the clip of their proud display:


if you do a search on google for Hamas tank you'll see the tens of articles in local and foreign press mocking Hamas about the "tank"

terrific interview with MK Yisroel Eichler

The Jewish Press conducted an excellent interview with MK Yisroel Eichler... you really should read it in its entirety.

I always enjoy Eichler. He is often entertaining.

In this interview he says some interesting things and makes some good points.

The one comment he says I want to question is when talking about the inefficiency of the army...

Eichler says "Those who object to my approach are saying that in order to get the best soldiers, you have to put all of them in a basket and naturally, the best ones will rise up. They don’t understand that the schleppers are weighing down the gifted ones in the system.”

 my question is - the yeshiva system as it exists today is founded on a statement of 1000 go in, 1 comes out. Meaning, the yeshiva system needs a lot of people to put out one great person. Even if 1000 are wasted, learning when they are not cut out for it, it is worthwhile because one gem will come out of them.

 So, can Eichler's statement not be said about the yeshiva system as well? and perhaps vice versa - can the same justification perhaps apply to the army? If one is inefficient and must be changed, perhaps they both are? Or, if one isn't, or if that inefficiency is either good or necessary, perhaps it works the same way in the other?

I think the situations are fairly similar for both. The reality of both situations can be attacked [as inefficient] or justified and promoted [as necessary] for both.

an ironic exchange in the Knesset

one cannot help but snicker at this exchange that happened today in the Knesset.

MK Yitzchak Cohen (Shas), from the Knesset podium, said today, directing his words at Yair Lapid "Yair - I want to tell you something about the parshat hashavua (this week's Torah portion), parshat Yitro..."

Lapid interrupted Cohen right then and there saying "Itzik, Parshat Yitro was last week's parsha"...

how can one not laugh at that?
