1. I'm sure this is pleases G-d
roxanne ,   haifa   (12.11.14)
( Adonai has nothing else to do.)
2. If Jews don't know how to keep holiest Jewish city sacred
Chaim ,   Israel   (12.12.14)
and defile it, perhaps it should be given to the Muslims.
3. 2 Chaim, Unconditional love...
ORA ,   JERUSALEM   (12.13.14)
and acceptance helps to open minds to the beauty of Shabat.
4. Several things here!.....
Shadoil79 ,   Jerusalem   (12.13.14)
1. The "pluralistic" society IS NOT so plural when your ideas don't agree with theirs. 2. Seculars of Rechavia themselves have approached the Charedim to do this as they do not want basically residential areas to lose their quiet on Shabbat. But being that they want places open in business districts they feel too embarrassed to be involved in closing something that is open on Shabbat. 3. These Chareidim are not the same as those in Meah Shearim. PLEASE LEARN YOUR JEWISH GEOGRAPHY. Just like Leftist and Rightests while both being secular are as different as night and day, so too in the Charedi world.
5. 4 Shadoil79 One thing here!...
ORA ,   JERUSALEM   (12.13.14)
Everything is may be not good in the Jewish society,but there is something good in every Jewish individual: The Jewish Neshama.
6. pay and display
Sherlock Holmes ,   London England   (12.14.14)
In my student days in the 1970's we purchased our Shabbos meals on Friday and presented our receipt when we arrived to eat in the restauant on Shabbos. Has that changed? In recent years I've done the same thing in hotels where I stayed over Chagim or shabosos. In youth hostels in various countries I distributed breakfast tickets to my pupils which they gave in to get breakfast in the dining room. Visitors to Jerusalem have to eat in honour of Shabbos and Yom Tov.
7. When those who are religious impose their
Al   (12.14.14)
view of religion on others than their beliefs are not appreciated. In fact they become a despised and marginalized group. That is what the ultra orthoquack impostors don't seem to understand. They really believe that through force they will entice others to follow their path. Nothing could be further from the truth. We are all free men and women and we wish to live how we want to live. Only when we close our eyes can we be judged and as far as I know no one has come back to tell the story. Israel was founded to be a place where Jews can live as free men and women. Enough of the religious trying to impose their views. t does nothing but further alienate them from the mainstream. They are not doing themselves any favours.
8. 2 Chaim. More than stones...
Jerusalem is more than stones that you just can give away to the muslims because you don't like the way some inhabitants behave. The state of Israel and Jerusalem are since almost 70 years existing because God wants the Jewish people to live there. Your comment shows that you don't see today's everyday miracles. That's the attitude of an unbeliever
9. 7 Al We expose our views...
ORA ,   JERUSALEM   (12.14.14)
how can we impose our views? You can bring a horse to the water but you can't force him to drink.
10. and let live and I promise not to bring
Al   (12.16.14)
my shiksa to the Shabbos Tisch, although she is hot and she cooks a mean gefilte fish. Happy Chanukah..
11. 10 Happy Hanuka,Al
ORA ,   JERUSALEM   (12.17.14)
12. 10 Al, Your partner deserves better...
ORA ,   JERUSALEM   (12.18.14)
she has done nothing wrong by being with a Jewish guy and doesn't deserve to be insulted. "Shikse" . [may be it is your way to get away with a kind of guilt feeling towards your frumme great boys]. Obviously ,if you are grown terrific , you are not yet a Zadik
