Day 32. Tomorrow is Lag Ba’omer. Time for a hair cut soon.
This shit is out of control. It has got to stop. It is unethical and it goes against Jewish law!
And now, the Omer:
I don’t know what they think they’ll have if they make Israel the worst country on Earth in which to be Jewish, but they’re working hard at it.
Nail on the head, Rich. I know lots of people who’ve made Aliyah or want to make Aliyah because they think it’s easier to be Jewish in Israel. I don’t know what they’re talking about. Here, I’m free to be a Reform Jew with all the government protection that the Bill of Rights affords me. In Israel, being anything other than Orthodox is like being oppressed! It’s absurd.
