Haredi MKs protest chilul shabbos for World Cup prep match


Back in February there was a tacit agreement to allow the soccer/football leagues to continue operating on Shabbos, and the necessary approvals and permits were granted.

Despite that, for some reason, the Haredi MKs are now protesting potential chilul shabbos expected to happen this Shabbos as part of the preparations for a Saturday night football match between Israel's National Team and Argentina's National Team. The match will be after Shabbos in Teddy Stadium in Jerusalem but security preparations and security for global star Messi will cause chilul shabbos earlier in the day. The match is part of the lead up to the World Cup games.

Haredi MKs are sending their protest letters now and asking Minister Miri Regev to not allow chilul shabbos.

1. I am not sure what they expect to happen. The game is happening, and security needs to be in place. How can they do this without chilul shabbos? Is the protest just lip service? shouldn't they have worked to prevent this when it was initially scheduled? At least with the Eurovision the issue is being raised well in advance rather than at the last moment..

2. Why are they protesting now when they already agreed to allow the soccer leagues to continue on Shabbos? This itself seems even less than the normal shabbos desecration as this will just be final preparations rather than the athletes playing and the fans driving and participating in the event.

3. Again, why are security preparations done on Shabbos afternoon for the soccer match any different than security reparations done on Shabbos afternoon for Lag b'Omer celebrations which the Haredi MKs consider ok and not protest-worthy?

MK Glick hosts gett refuser in Knesset

Strangely enough, yesterday MK Yehuda Glick (Likud) invited a fellow to the Knesset that has aroused curiosity, to put it mildly.

The person Glick invited and hosted was Yaron Attias. Attias has the official status of a gett refuser. The beis din in Haifa has recently declared him as such for refusing to give his wife a gett and has also implored the public to impose social and halachic sanctions on him, specifically to avoid him socially, to not let him into shul or give him aliyah to the torah and the like.

Why Glick invited him to the Knesset nobody knows. Many have asked why yet Glick has, so far, refused to explain.

Glick has always danced to his own beat and played to his own tunes. He has always been a bit unique and different. I hope he had a really good reason to invite Attias. I hope he was trying to persuade him to give the gett to his wife. I hope he thought he would have some influence on the situation and he brought Attias to the Knesset in order to facilitate that, but I don't know.

I dont know why else Glick would bring him to the Knesset and what he might otherwise gain from it, so I am willing to wait for an explanation, giving him the benefit of the doubt in the meantime. Glick is normally unique in a good way, taking positions that seem to be right, even if against popular opinion. It does say that one shoudl take care to be clean from public suspicion, so I hope he explains soon and does not remain suspect of going against the beis din orders and supporting a gett refuser.

don't print the pictures..

This made me laugh.

Haredi websites have posted the request of the 8 new Visznitser rebbes stating that they wish to follow in the ways of their father, the previous Visznitser Rebbe who recently died, and part of that is requesting, demanding, that people not take pictures of them or publish photographs of them.

That itself is not funny, but the Haredi sites that I saw that published this item added to the article the pictures of the rebbes. That's what is funny. And maybe a little sad.
