Rav Nebenzahl on J-Street
OK, he really said it years ago about Israeli leftists. However, since we import everything else from the the more ethereal Torah provinces of Eretz Yisrael, I figured we could apply his classic one-liner to our own tzoros here. The rest of the year, i am far too despondant about the major damage that J-Street does to the cause of Israel’s future. On Purim at least I can joke about it:
J-Street is patur from the mitzvah of drinking on Purim. The entire year, they don’t know the difference between Arur Haman and Baruch Mordechai.
