How Jewish is Israel? The Shabbat test by Daniel Pinner

Two different things happened on Shabbat Chaya Sarah, in two very different areas. Which area passed the test?

Two events happened over  Shabbat Chaya Sarah in Israel, two events that were diametrically opposite in every possible way.

 

One in the greater Tel Aviv region, the foundation of modern secular political Zionism, the heart and the very epitome of secular left-wing progressive Israel; the other in Hevron, the oldest Jewish city in the world, the foundation of Judaism and Jewish settlement in the Land of Israel, the heart and very epitome of religious Jewish identity.

 

Following the Mishnaic dictum that "we begin with the disgrace and conclude with the glory" (Pesachim 12:4), we begin with the recent innovation in Tel Aviv:

 

The Tel Aviv municipality has recently decided to provide free public transportation on Shabbat.

 

What is known as the 'status quo' (on Jewish observance), going back to well before independence, to the days of British colonial rule, is that public transportation (buses and trains) does not operate on Shabbat. Taxis do operate: they are classified as private vehicles.

 

And the Tel Aviv municipality has decided to challenge and eradicate that status quo. For legal reasons, the bus companies cannot operate services for a fee in predominantly Jewish cities in Israel.

(Haifa is a glaring exception: due to its charismatic and almost violently anti-religious mayor Abba Khushi in the early years of independence, 1951-1969, Haifa's buses have always operated on Shabbat. But I digress.)

The Tel Aviv municipality found and successfully exploited a loophole in the legal status quo: no, they can't operate fee-paying public transport on Shabbat. But they can – and just did! – operate free buses on Shabbat.

And so, this last Shabbat, free bus services operated in Tel Aviv and its satellite-towns of Ramat Gan, Ramat Ha-Sharon, Givatayyim, Holon, and Kiryat Ono. These free bus routes, covering some 300 km (185 miles), ran from 4:00 on Friday afternoon (the beginning of Shabbat) until 2:00 a.m. Shabbat morning, and again from 9:00 Shabbat morning until the end of Shabbat.

A free public bus service should be immensely popular. And these free bus routes service some 1,000,000 people a day during the week. One would expect, therefore, that these buses would effect a veritable revolution among the good folk of the greater Tel Aviv region.

In fact, according to the Tel Aviv municipality, a mere 6,000 people rode on these free buses.

Not all that popular, after all.

(And possibly discriminatory, because observant Jews cannot take advantage of these free buses and are forced to subsidize something they cannot utilize. One could make a case, in that case, for forcing the buses to be free all week.) 

And now for the glory:

The same Shabbat, 70 km (44 miles) south-east of Tel Aviv, in the ancient Jewish city of Hevron, well over 40,000 Jews gathered. Jews of all ages, Jews from all over Israel (and no doubt beyond), Jews from every conceivable walk of life. The majority of them religious, but by no means all.

It was Shabbat Chayyei Sarah, the Shabbat on which Jews the world over read the Torah-portion recording how our father Abraham purchased the Machpelah Cave in Hevron as the first-ever Jewish land-holding in the Land of Israel (Genesis Chapter 23).

It is an indescribably inspiring and spiritually uplifting experience – hearing the Torah's account of Abraham's buying the field and the cave within it, while standing on the self-same spot, in the structure covering the very cave which Abraham bought as a burial-plot for his beloved wife Sarah.

And so, myriads of Jews made the effort, expended their resources, in order to spend this specific Shabbat in Hevron and do so every year.

Unlike the free transport in Tel Aviv and surroundings, traveling to Hevron takes time, effort, and money. It's an hour's drive from Jerusalem, an hour's drive from Beer Sheva, two hours from Tel Aviv, two-and-a-half hours from Netanya, and over three hours from Haifa.

Many of those more-than-40,000 visitors stayed in neighboring Kiryat Arba, a 20-minute walk at least, maybe half-an-hour's walk, maybe an hour's walk, from the Machpela where all the action was.

Thousands of others spent the Shabbat in tents in Hevron, in the immediate environs of the Machpela. Hevron is high in the Judean Hills, some 930 meters (1,050 feet) above sea level; so even though it lies 30 km (19 miles) almost due south of Jerusalem, it gets chilly at this time of year, with the night-time temperature falling to about 10º C (50º F). Not exactly the ideal camping weather.

Yet with all this, the ancient attraction which Hevron exerts over Jews pulled in at least eight times (!) as many Jews as those free buses of Tel Aviv with their purposeful Shabbat desecration.

Two opposite poles: Tel Aviv and Hevron. In the one, a concerted effort by the local municipality to encourage Jews there to desecrate Shabbat by offering free buses. In the other, Jews making their own efforts to celebrate an exceptionally meaningful Shabbat in the most ancient Jewish site in the world.

The results of the Tel Aviv municipality's efforts were underwhelming. A mere 6,000 people availed themselves of this free Shabbat-violation. (And that figure is probably an overstatement, coming as it does from the Tel Aviv municipality itself).

And meanwhile, the Jewish masses in Israel showed how many make the effort to celebrate Shabbat and to forge their ever-deeper connexion with the Torah.

The Tel Aviv municipality is investing millions of shekels in providing these free buses on Shabbat. But popular demand, popular sentiment, clearly shows that the masses in Israel want Hevron and Shabbat, and all that those represent, and not the cheap glitz and ticky-tacky of Tel Aviv with its secularism and modernity and passing fads.

Far, far more Jews in Israel want the connexion to eternal, authentic Judaism, to Jewish heritage and tradition that Hevron epitomizes than want the shallow hedonism that Tel Aviv represents.

So how Jewish is Israel?

Let the people decide. We do, after all, pride ourselves on being a democracy, do we not?

12 interesting facts about Tigers--The real King of the Jungle

Fiona Hill Should Be Condemned by Jewish Groups. She Won't Be. By Dennis Prager

The former senior director for European and Russian affairs for the Trump administration, Fiona Hill, testified last week in the House impeachment hearings.

At one point, Rep. Raja Krishnamoorthi, D-Ill., asked her: "Would you say that these different theories, these conspiracy theories that have been targeting you, spun in part by folks like Mr. Stone as well as fueled by Rudy Giuliani and others, basically have a tinge of anti-Semitism to them at least?"

This was Ms. Hill's response: "Well, certainly when they involve George Soros, they do. I'd just like to point out that in the early 1900s, the czarist secret police produced something called The Protocols of the Elders of Zion, which, actually, you can still obtain on the Internet. And you can buy it, actually, sometimes, at bookshops in Russia and elsewhere. This is the longest-running anti-Semitic trope that we have in history.

"And the trope against Mr. Soros, George Soros, was also created for political purposes, and this is the new Protocols of the Elders of Zion. I actually intended to write something about this before I was actually invited to come into the administration. Because it's an absolute outrage."

What is really an "absolute outrage" is that anyone – especially someone testifying in Congress before a national audience – would compare criticism of George Soros with The Protocols of the Elders of Zion. For those unfamiliar with The Protocols, they are the most infamous anti-Semitic forgery in history. Believed to have been written by Russian czarist officials in the 19th century, it purported to be a document written by Jews that outlined a Jewish plot to take over the world.

The Protocols is a lie, and its sole intent was to create anti-Semitism. Criticism of Soros is rarely a lie, and its intent is rarely to create anti-Semitism.

George Soros is a billionaire whose Open Society Foundations, with offices in 70 countries, is the world's major funder of left-wing causes.

If Soros were to come from a Lutheran or Catholic family, there would be no less criticism of him. While it is always possible that some people attack Soros solely because he was born into a Jewish family (he does not identify as a Jew), there are few such people.

Much of Israel's Jewish population, for example, loathes Soros. Are they anti-Semites?

Moreover, Soros loathes Israel. As Joshua Muravchik reported in the Wall Street Journal, "(I)n a speech…to the Yivo Institute for Jewish Research, Mr. Soros likened the behavior of Israel to that of the Nazis…"

"George Soros," the Israeli Ministry of Foreign Affairs said in a statement in July 2017, "continuously undermines Israel's democratically elected governments by funding organizations that defame the Jewish state and seek to deny it the right to defend itself."

Martin Peretz, former longtime editor-in-chief of The New Republic, wrote: "Soros is ostentatiously indifferent to his own Jewishness. He is not a believer. He has no Jewish communal ties. He certainly isn't a Zionist. He told Connie Bruck in The New Yorker – testily, she recounted – that 'I don't deny the Jews their right to a national existence, but I don't want to be part of it.'"

Hill's charge that criticism of Soros is "the new Protocols of the Elders of Zion" is vile. It is what leftists like Hill – who was a member of the board of Soros' Open Society Institute from 2000 to 2006 – always do when a fellow leftist (who is not a Christian white male) is criticized. Leftists constantly labeled criticism of former President Barack Obama "racist" and branded criticism of Hillary Clinton "sexist" and "misogynist."

Their goal is to inoculate leftists from criticism.

In addition to being an illegitimate tactic to silence critics, what Hill said was immoral because it reduces the evil of real anti-Semitism. The left has already cheapened the terms "Nazi," "racist," and "white supremacist." You can now add Protocols of the Elders of Zion to the list. If The Protocols of the Elders of Zion is the same as attacking George Soros, then The Protocols was not all that bad.

Jewish groups like the Anti-Defamation League should have censured Hill. But they won't because so many Jewish groups – once run by liberals and conservatives who cared deeply about Israel and the Jewish people – are today run by many Soros-admiring leftists, whose primary commitment is to further left-wing causes.

In fact, it is close to certain that the leaders of most American (not Israeli) Jewish organizations agree with Fiona Hill.

I began a 2007 column on George Soros this way: "What do Karl Marx, Leon Trotsky, Noam Chomsky and George Soros have in common? They were/are all radicals, born to Jewish parents, had no Jewish identity and hurt Jews (not to mention non-Jews)."

Criticizing George Soros is no more inherently anti-Semitic than attacking Marx, Trotsky, or Chomsky.

As the left sees it, isolating Israel for rhetorical attack, even supporting its economic strangulation – e.g., through the boycott, divestment and sanctions movement – is not anti-Semitic. But attacking George Soros is. Such is the broken state of the moral compass of the left and people like Fiona Hill.

Netanyahu: I will quit all my ministerial duties by January 1

Portfolios that Netanyahu currently holds are the Health Ministry, Diaspora Ministry, and the Welfare Ministry though he still intends to continue acting as Prime Minister. By YONAH JEREMY BOB

 

Under the gun by a High Court of Justice petition, Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu announced on Thursday that he will be dropping all of his portfolios by January 1 besides his role as premier. Currently, besides being prime minister, Netanyahu is health minister, social welfare minister, Diaspora minister, and acting agricultural minister. Read More Related Articles

Pressure for Netanyahu to drop these portfolios spiked after Attorney-General Avichai Mandelblit announced a final indictment for the prime minister on November 21. Shortly after, the Movement for the Quality of Government in Israel filed a petition to the High Court both to get Netanyahu fired as prime minister and to force his resignation from his other ministerial roles. On November 25, Mandelblit defended Netanyahu's ability to remain prime minister, but deferred his view on whether Netanyahu could keep the other roles, hinting that he understood that Netanyahu would voluntarily resign them.In light of Netanyahu's announcement to voluntarily relinquish the roles, Mandelblit told the High Court on Thursday that he no longer needs to express a legal opinion about whether the court should force Netanyahu's resignation regarding those roles.

Love Yehuda Lave

It was six years ago today that I came on Aliyah. I had lived here for five years before (from 1995-2000) when I had gone to Yeshivah, but now I was coming home again.

I came alone as my wife didn't want to join me and the Halacha is that if one person doesn't want to go home to Israel and the other does, it is grounds for divorce. I loved my wife and hoped she would eventually join me, but we went our separate ways. Baruch Hashem, G-d gave me a new wife who also loves me, and we are living a Torah life here in Jerusalem as the Torah teaches we are supposed to. I bless G-d every day, that I have the merit to live here. My Grandfathers, both Rabbis would have given everything to have the merit to live here. One made it to America and had my Father, but the other was murdered in the Holocaust, but was able to get my Mother to America. I was able to go back this year to see where she was born in Germany and to Poland to see the Holocaust camps where her family was murdered.

To all those Jews who haven't made Aliyah yet, I say it is one of the most important things you can do as a Jew.

 

Forgetfulness leads to exile while remembrance is the secret of redemption.

US Lawmakers Call For A Food And Drug Administration Office In Israel

A regional office of the US's Food and Drug Administration should be opened in Israel, a bipartisan group of lawmakers said.

A letter sent Friday to the secretary of the United States Department of Health and Human Services, Alex Azar, said that "as a global leader in innovation, Israel's world class medical research programs have spurred breakthrough developments in medical technologies, pharmaceuticals, and other advancements in medicine that have positively impacted the global health system. We believe establishing an FDA office in Israel would facilitate collaboration in life-saving research and is a natural step for strengthening the special relationship between our countries."

Full Story (The Times of Israel)

The Reign of the Prosecution By Caroline B. Glick

Only a few weeks ago in Israel, the politicians were the big story. Yisrael Beiteinu chairman Avigdor Lieberman was the villain who had held the country hostage for nearly a year as he fed his narcissistic personality disorder.

The left's latest flagship, the Blue and White Party, is all the once vibrant political camp can put together now that it has lost its ideology. With its deity of peace killed by suicide bombers and missiles, and its socialism statues crushed under the weight of bankrupt government companies, all the left has left is "blue and white." The party stands on two planks: destroying Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and eternalizing the regime of Israel's unelected bureaucrats.

The party's figurehead—Benny Gantz—was tempted to join a unity government with Netanyahu that would guarantee he served as prime minister under a rotation agreement. But his comrades wouldn't let him. Joining a government with Netanyahu would be a betrayal of their very reason for existing. So, unhappily, he walked away.

And then there was Netanyahu himself. On Thursday, his supporters shook their heads in frustration and his enemies clapped their hands in glee at the sight of Israel's greatest statesman, the leader the public wants to keep in office, unable to form a government.

The conversation about Israel's politicians lasted less than 24 hours.

At four in the afternoon, Attorney General Avichai Mandelblit's office announced that at 7:30 in the evening he would announce his decision to indict Netanyahu. The underlying message was crystal clear: The day after Gantz returned his mandate to form a government to President Reuven Rivlin after he failed to get a sufficient number of coalition partners to build a government, Mandelblit ruled that there's no point in talking about whether or not Israel is going to new elections in March.

Voters don't decide anything. The lawyers do. Politicians are irrelevant. The only people who count in Israel today are the unelected attorneys who run the country.

But then we already knew that. And the fact that—as expected—Mandelblit announced sternly that he is indicting Netanyahu on three charges of breach of trust and one charge of bribery was at best anticlimactic. The game was up—if it was ever in play—in February.

Last February, at the height of the first election campaign of the year, when Netanyahu and his right-wing coalition partners were leading in all polls by a wide margin, Mandelblit took the unprecedented—and legally dubious—step of announcing his intention to indict Netanyahu on those charges—pending a pre-indictment hearing. The moment he made his announcement, the right began to slide in the polls. The Leader had spoken, and we had no right to question him.

Blue and White's scattershot campaign converged around Mandelblit's "recommendation." The left had a rallying cry and a reason to vote. Netanyahu's neck was on the chopping block.

Ever since Mandelblit gave his "recommendations," he and his comrades have been the only political actors with any power to speak of. Our actual elected leaders were rendered bit players in the lawyers' regime. Mandelblit's announcement Thursday just made it official.

To the cheers of Israel's corrupt media, for the past three years our legal overlords have gnawed away at all aspects of political power in Israel, and in the process—not that they cared—they corrupted Israel's legal system from top to bottom. From beginning to end, their criminal persecution of Netanyahu has been a travesty of every norm in democratic societies governed by the rule of law.

Carefully edited and wholly distorted recordings and transcripts of police interrogations of Netanyahu, his wife, son and advisers were systematically leaked to the media. The fact that every such leak was a felony offense was of no matter. Netanyahu's attorneys submitted request after request for Mandelblit to order an investigation of the criminal leaks. All were summarily and scornfully rejected.

As the probes escalated, overseen by State Prosecutor Shai Nitzan, police investigators extorted Netanyahu's closest advisers to coerce them into becoming state witnesses against the most successful and admired prime minister Israel has ever had. Investigators threatened Netanyahu's former spokesman Nir Hefetz that they would destroy his family and bankrupt him if he didn't turn on Netanyahu. They finally succeeded in breaking him after incarcerating him in a flea-infested jail cell for 15 nights, denying him sleep and medical treatment and bringing a young woman he knew into an interrogation room next to him and then threatening to destroy his family.

In the earlier stages of the probes, then police inspector general Roni Alsheich spun wild, unsubstantiated and frankly insane conspiracy theories about Netanyahu, including the claim that he hired private investigators to tail police investigators. Alsheich then went out of his way to prevent the government from appointing his successor as he approached the end of his term of service. Still today, more than a year later, Israel has no police inspector general.

Then, of course, there is Mandelblit himself. Mandelblit, who claims not to have known about the abuse of witnesses—but then refused to investigate the allegations. Mandelblit, who promised—after publishing his "recommendations" for indictment at the height of the election campaign—that he would approach Netanyahu's pre-trial hearing with an open mind. That promise was exposed as a lie when the chief prosecutor Liat Ben-Ari left the hearing two days early to take her family on safari in South Africa. Wouldn't want a little thing like the prime minister's legal fate to ruin her chance to see the elephants.

The same Mandelblit refused to investigate Ben-Ari when recordings emerged last month showing that she submitted a false deposition to a court in relation to a lawsuit submitted against her by a former subordinate attorney.

Then, of course, there is the substance of the charges themselves. The charge that Netanyahu accepted a bribe is based on an invented notion that positive media coverage of a politician is bribery. The notion that press coverage can be considered bribery exists nowhere in the democratic world. No prosecutor in the world has ever indicted—or investigated—a politician or media organization of having committed bribery involving the provision of positive coverage.

Senior American jurists appeared before Mandelblit in Netanyahu's (self-evidently unserious) pre-indictment hearing to warn him that pursuing bribery charges against politicians for receiving positive coverage is a recipe for destroying freedom of the press and democracy itself.

But then, that is the entire point of going after Netanyahu with invented crimes. Now that Netanyahu has been charged for bribery—and incidentally, he never even received positive coverage from the media organ accused of providing it—every politician that gets on the lawyers' bad side will be sweating bricks any time a reporter writes something nice about him.

After Mandelblit made his prime-time announcement, Netanyahu pledged to fight for his freedom and for the restoration of Israeli democracy and the rule of law. In his speech Thursday night, he made an impassioned appeal to his "decent" political rivals to join him in this fight.

If any politicians doubt that Netanyahu's struggle is their struggle, they should look no further than the prosecution's announcement last week that it was opening a review, ahead of a criminal probe—of Gantz's role in the so-called "Fifth Dimension Affair." The Fifth Dimension was a start-up Gantz headed. Its sale for $14 million allegedly violated standard procedures.

Maybe Gantz did nothing wrong. But then, Netanyahu is being indicted for crimes that don't exist. So it doesn't matter. The message is clear: Every politician is at the mercy of the prosecutors. Fall out of line, and you will become a criminal suspect before you can say "prosecutorial abuse."

It's certainly true that the left shares the prosecutors' hatred of Netanyahu; Blue and White exists to destroy him. But all the leftist politicians—and Lieberman—who are celebrating today need to understand that the Netanyahu they love to hate is their best friend and defender today. If Netanyahu is found guilty of crimes that were invented for the purpose of destroying him, then their goose will be cooked along with his.

Politicians may make us happy or sad, frustrated or infuriated. But today, in post-democratic Israel, it hardly matters. Netanyahu called last night for an "investigation of the investigators." Unless our elected officials join forces to heed his call, they—and the voters who elected them—will never be relevant again.

Bereaved Families to EU: Your Money Is Murdering Our Children By David Israel

A group of bereaved families on Sunday staged a protest against the European Union over its funding of Israeli NGOs that defend terrorists and their families in Israeli courts.

Families from the Choosing Life Forum of Bereaved Families gathered in Bnei Brak outside the Dan region police headquarters, where bereaved mother Merav Hajaj had been summoned for interrogation for defacing the EU's Ramat Gan office last September.

Hajaj, whose daughter Shir was murdered in a terrorist attack in 2017, spray-painted "EU GET OUT" on the building's office door, spilled red paint on the floor, and posted a sign reading "Stop paying the killers of our children."

She protested the EU's funding of the far-left Israeli NGO HaMoked, which provides legal defense to terrorists and their families, including the terrorist who murdered Shir Hajaj.

Following the attack that murdered Shir Hajaj and three others, HaMoked petitioned Israel's High Court of justice against demolishing the terrorist's home and against stripping the citizenship of the terrorist's family members who had known about the attack.

According to Im Tirtzu, which is accompanying the Choosing Life Forum, over the past five years the EU has provided roughly $2.8 million to HaMoked in both direct and indirect funding.

In addition, the EU has also provided some $2.88 million to the NGOs Adalah and The Association for Civil Rights in Israel, which also defend terrorists in Israeli courts.

The protesters, who held signs reading "EU Shame On You!" and "The EU Pays Terrorists and Persecutes Bereaved Families," included a number of bereaved families: Boaz Kokia, father of Ron Kokia; Brenda Lemkus, mother of murdered Dalya Lemkus; Rafi Levengrond, father of Kim Levengrond-Yehezkel; Vladimir Lubarsky, father of Ronen Lubarsky, and Dan Landau, father-in-law of Elad Salomon.

Before entering the police headquarters, Merav Hajaj said that "the one who should be under interrogation is the EU, which funds the murder of Jews and then funds the legal defense of terrorists who murdered our children."

"The hypocrisy of the EU knows no bounds," Hajaj added. "On the one hand, they encourage the murder of Jews and fund the defense of terrorists, including the terrorist who murdered my daughter, and on the other hand, they cry to the police when someone protests their blood money."

"It is an embarrassment that Israel allows this to take place," Hajaj said.

Alon Schvartzer, Director of Policy for Im Tirtzu, said that "it is an absurd situation in which the EU is allowed to fund radical NGOs that petition the courts on behalf of murderous terrorists."

"The EU is trying to turn the victim into the assailant," Schvartzer said," but we will not allow them to succeed in their perverted attempt to conceal the truth. Im Tirtzu stands with the Hajaj family, and calls on our elected officials to move from words to actions and start combating these subversive actions by foreign governments that undermine Israeli sovereignty."

9 Israeli products make TIME Top 100 Inventions of 2019

Watergen, Tyto Care, OrCam, ECOncrete, Theranica, Temi and Eviation products make main list; Lemonade and ElliQ receive special mention.By Abigail Klein Leichman

9 Israeli products make TIME Top 100 Inventions of 2019

Detail from the Dec. 2/Dec. 9 issue of TIME celebrating the best inventions of 2019.

  •  

Israeli may be a small country, but Israeli products make up a disproportionately large percentage of the TIME Top 100 Inventions of 2019 list revealed in the magazine's December 2/December 9 double issue.

In addition to seven Israeli products on the list, two others were singled out for special mention.

 

The seven companies whose groundbreaking products appear on the Top 100 list will be familiar to ISRAEL21c readers. They include:

• Watergen for its GENNY units that can produce up to 7 gallons of water daily from the ambient air, with no plumbing required;
• Tyto Care for its TytoHome telehealth exam kit for home use;
• OrCam for its MyEye2 wearable AI-driven MyEye 2 artificial vision device;
• ECOncrete for its environmentally sensitive concrete products that enhance marine life while increasing the structural stability, longevity and aesthetics of urban waterfronts and coastal structures;
• Theranica Nerivio for its patch to treat migraines through electrical stimulation;
• Temi for its child-friendly personal robot aimed at linking busy families;
• Eviation Aircraft for its all-electric nine-passenger plane.

"To assemble our 2019 list, we solicited nominations across a variety of categories from our editors and correspondents around the world, as well as through an online application process. Then TIME evaluated each contender based on key factors, including originality, creativity, influence, ambition and effectiveness," the magazine explained.

In addition to the Top 100, 30 products received special mention.

Among them were ElliQ from Intuition Robotics, an assistive robot geared for use by the elderly; and the "Giveback" program of insure-tech company Lemonade that allows policyholders to donate unused funds to charity. As of July, the 2019 Lemonade Giveback totaled $631,540.17.
