The Religious Proposals of the New Government

Two major changes, called "reforms," are being talked about in the Ministry of Religions by Minister Mattan Kahane. One is called the "The Kashrus Reform" which has been formally proposed, and the other has been proposed by his associates to be instated, namely, the Conversion Reform." Both of these are strongly supported by the Treasury Minister Avigdor Lieberman whose supporters are largely the non-Jews who have infiltrated the vineyard of Jewry in Israel.

The New Tax on Disposables

The Treasury Ministry and the Environment Protection Ministry have proposed to double the tax on disposable dishes and cutlery. This will heavily impact large chareidi families, since they are among the heaviest users of disposable products in Israel.

MK Rabbi Yaakov Asher requested a discussion in the Knesset on the issue. He wrote, "The Ministers of Treasury and of Environment Protection are presenting a program to double the tax on all disposable plastic and paper goods which will be passed on the consumer, thus doubling the retail price."

Part II

In this series of articles, published in 1992, Rabbi Ben David scans the impressions and expressions of gedolei Yisroel in reaction to adverse situations involving themselves or others. Their clearcut outlook and approach is reflected. What did they say? How did they react? Why did they not sink into the depths of despair? From where did they draw the strength to continue?

A series of articled discussing the meaning and context of personal suffering in life.

"There Are No Questions in the Afterlife"

Yalkut Me'am Lo'ez tells that the Ramban once visited an ailing disciple. Seeing him about to depart this world, he said:

"Listen to me, my son. Know that in the Upper World there is a palace of judgment over which the Shechina presides. Here, take this kameya charm which will open before you all the gateways of Heaven. When you reach the uppermost palace, be so good as to ask these particular questions. They concern the welfare of our people and have troubled me for some time."
