Gavant A shiva call reminds me why I live in Jerusalem, despite the fear. Last night I dreamed that I was in my hometown Baltimore, trying to catch a bus to take me to my destination. When I woke up, I realized what my subconscious mind was telling me: I want to be free of this fear of bus stops and light rail stations and grocery store employees. Last week I prepared to leave my house to a routine exercise class by bus. Before I left, I heard the horrific news of the massacre in Har Nof. It was too early to know who the victims were. I hesitated before boarding the bus. Or should I cower in the safety of my own four walls? Never mind the fact that those four walls might not be so safe in case of a missile attack.

Much to my shock, the piece was describing opponents of Taliban-styled buses in a positive light: Tzipi Hotovely, who chairs the Knesset Committee on the Status of Women, is working against the mehadrin lines in Jerusalem. Avital Feldman, who is a leader in the battle against mehadrin lines, states the response supporting their opposition is encouraging.
She explains there are a growing number of complaints from women who have fallen victim to abuse on buses on which passengers demand they sit in the rear. Hundreds of supporters, opponents of the mehadrin lines, are expected to take part in a kenos in Hebrew University in Yerushalayim on Monday.

SEC Charges Bank Leumi With Conducting Unregistered U.S. Cross-Border Business
Wednesday, April 14, Mythical Creatures: And not because it’s not true. But I’ve been saying the same thing for years.
The series will focus on the dati-leumi (religious Zionist, or modern Orthodox) community in Israel. Even with that limitation, there are many subgroups and I’m sure replies will vary widely. Each post will contain one or two questions about dating, engagements, weddings, and the period after the wedding.
Izgad Izgad is Aramaic for messenger or runner. We live in a world caught between secularism and religious fundamentalism. I am taking up my post, alongside many wiser souls, as a low ranking messenger boy in the fight to establish a third path. Along the way, I will be recommending a steady flow of good science fiction and fantasy in order to keep things entertaining.
Welcome Aboard and Enjoy the Ride! Wednesday, April 14, C.

At Home in Jerusalem
Well That’s Life I feel like I am constantly pulled in many directions, and am looked at in so many ways. I am the ultra orthodox girl when speaking to those more to the left of me, and the super liberal gemara learner I wish I knew how to learn gemara! Its so hard to be stuck between so many worlds, I feel like there are very few people who I could actually talk to and for them to understand me. Lonely woman of faith? To my friends more to the right, I am not succeeding because I do not say tehillim when riding on a bus, or do not wear dark tights, to the left I am failing for being too religious, too observant, and caring too much.

No tzelem next to me, please. A little trip I just took really sold me on the benefits of living in a place where most people are Jewish, the buses stop on Shabbos, the food is kosher near everywhere, and you don’t have to apologize for being a Yid. Hearing the horn go off at candle lighting was just shocking. I finally felt at home after being an outsider in every community I’ve lived in. I hope to get there before October. I’m going to be going to a yeshiva that’s on the left edge of charedi in Jerusalem.
I’m pretty modern, and am looking for advice on a few things:

Judah trucks no patience for mediocrity, certainly not in the holy endeavor of Torah study.
I’m not sure if this is the right sub for this question, but I was wondering if anyone could explain to me the differences between dati leumi torani and chardal philosophies in Israel.
The dati leumi camp has decided to awaken the waning Zionist population of that city, hoping to unseat the Shas-affiliated mayor. There are approximately 2, registered dati leumi voters in that city. A seasoned politician, Mayor Abutbul is not about to give up on the dati leumi vote and he has formed a team to run a campaign directed specifically at that tzibur. The mayor has tapped Moti Ovadia to head that effort. Ovadia in the past worked for dati leumi MKs Nissim Slomiansky and Zevulun Orlev, so he is well acquainted with that population.
It is reported that of late Abutbul has met with the head of the Bayit Yehudi party in Beit Shemesh as well as with party members, hoping to find a formula for cooperation ahead of the municipal election. Abutbul announced he is extending an outstretched arm to the dati leumi representatives in the hope of beginning a policy of true cooperation in the city.
