Tel Aviv rallyA curious hobnob assembled in Tel Aviv to protest Lieberman’s call to investigate the funding of subversive NGOs. Among the participants were Reformists (the Movement for Progressive Judaism), the Hadash Arab party, the Communist Party, the Kibbutz Movement, and an assortment of ultra-left NGOs.

Some of those NGOs, including Peace Now, had recently called on the White House to investigate US funding of Israeli right-wing NGOs.

Rav Ovadia Yosef has approved all existing IDF conversions, though he has ruled that subsequent conversions must be coordinated with the Chief Rabbinate.

The government will ignore the second part of his ruling because Rav Ovadia has committed himself to the validity of military conversions, even if they are as simple as declaring, ‘Allah Akbar.’

Shas aimed to prevent the creation of two classes of proselytes: real ones and those recognized by the atheistic state but not by rabbis. A good intention, but it only encourages the state to push for more fake conversions.

The US Society of Professional Journalists rescinded the naming of an award after Helen Thomas after the 90-year-old called on Israeli Jews to return to Poland and leave the Land of Israel to Arabs.
