1. It's NOT a Programming Language

Nitzan Sadan does not know what a programming language is, apparently. Wiki it.
2. Haredi
Jay Mark ,   NYC   (06.01.10)
The kids in the picture are wearing knitted yarmulkes (kipot serugot), which means they are not hareidim. Oy!
3. Hebrew is Lashon HaKodeh
Eliyahu Konn ,   Yrushalayim   (06.01.10)
Nein Yiddish. Maybe they will hand out a big furry hat with every order.

Sorry #2, but those are NOT knitted yalmukes and they are chareidi.
5. sorry to dissapoint you

the vast majority of hareidi kids speak hebrew at home not yiddish, which is restricted to enclaves such as Meah Shearim, and other chassidic communities. The reason they don't learn programming is because they can pick it up so easily later in life, why waste their time on it now

jewish messianism has its roots in the apocalyptic literature of the 2nd century bc to 1st century bc promising a future anointed leader or messiah to resurrect the israelite kingdom of God in place of the foreign rulers of the time,the fall of the roman administration of judea province began with the formation of the zealots though full scale open revolt did not occur till the first jewish-roman war in 66 ad,the ministry of Jesus according to the account of the gospels falls into this pattern of sectarian preachers with devoted disciples,according to the gospels writers Jesus preached for a period of one to three years when he was in his early 30s in the early 1st century ad,the gospels of Jesus´method of teaching as involving parables,metaphor,allegory,proverbs and a small number of direct sermons such as the sermon of the mount,his ministry of teaching healing the sick and disabled and performing various miracles culminated in his execution at the hands of the roman authorities in zion,shortly thereafter a strong belief in Jesus´resurrection spread rapidly through zion beggining with his closest disciples which led up to the traditional day of pentecost,this event provoked the disciples to embark on a number of missionary campaigns to spread the good news following the great commission handed down by Jesus,jewish christians were among the earliest followers of Jesus and an important part of judean society during the mid to late 1st century,this movement was centered in zion,they held faithfully to the torah and jewish law(which was still somewhat fluid in this time period) including the acceptance of gentiles converts possibly based on a version of the noachide laws,disputes over the torah generated intense controversy in early jewish christians and gentiles christians,there was a slowly growing chasm between gentiles and jewish christians rather than a sudden split and the true end of ancient jewish christianity ocurred only in the 5th century.

Nope. Today's modern Hebrew is certainly not Lashon HaKodesh. Between the words and conjugations, while they're similar, obviously, there are many differences.
8. #2 They are velvet, honeybunch
srugit   (06.02.10)
9. #7 I should have said Hebrew
Eliyahu Konn ,   Yrushalayim   (06.02.10)
of the Tanach.
10. #1 It is, actually. Go look up PROLOG or LOGO.
