    Israelis losing patience with American reform Jews might cost the state economically. Israelis losing patience Israeli chareidim may benefit the state economically. last time i checked, Jews are rumored to have economic acumen. we shall see how this plays out.

    Very well put.

    One minor quibble: It seems the motivation on banning entry of sifrei torah had some other reasons as well.

    Why be surprised? As the Torah tells us – ‘from within your midst will come your worst enemies’. That same Temple Emanuel in NYC used to have their sidurim? in English with Hebrew translation and their Shmone Esrai had three paragraphs and all reference to Yerushalayim, Zion were completely omitted. Don’t know how it is today, and I think there was no reference to G-D (not sure). They are today’s Hellenists, very appropriate to this time of year – Chanukah.

      not a good example; their position does not put us at risk. neturei karta is a better example; their position puts us at risk.

    Does he pray to G-d Who commands Jews what to do and not do, or some imaginary, non-judgmental substitute cool with whatever course he chooses?

      neither; as usual, something in between. demeaning is not the way to foster understanding. if you are not able to articulate the others point of view accurately, perhaps even better than your adversary can, you will not be able to change their viewpoint. i learned this lesson as a corporate executive; it applies more broadly.

    “neturei karta is a better example; their position puts us at risk.”

    This is ridiculous. There are perhaps several hundred of the extremist members and they are looked as kooks.

    The position of the URJ and HIR with their support and promotion of BDS and other Anti-Israel actions, including writing Op-Eds are much mo9re harmful to Israel.
