Mishpacha: Separating Fact from Fiction


mishpachaThe current issue of Mishpacha Magazine, titled “One Family, One Burden – Lets Talk Straight,” might just be the most important one since the magazine’s inception. A group of talented and experienced writers worked overtime to clarify and respond, separating fact from fiction, political posturing from legitimate claims.

The results are impressive, and a leading talmid chacham has referred to the issue as ‘The manual for how frum Jews will think about matters of religion in Eretz Yisroel.”

  1. looking forward to reading it all

    And credit to Matzav for honorably promoting another publication. It is achdus like that that will bring Moshiach.

  2. i just read the article and i would like to summarize for those that didnt:

    1. Bachurim learning cant be taken away from their gemaras and forced into the army

    2. Bachurim that arent learning are “at risk” and the army will make them secular

  3. It is important to remember that it is probably true that eventually the Army will not want or need most Chareidm. This is precisely why the stubborn refusal to talk about this issue in any meaningful way for the last 35 years has been inexcusably wrong.

  4. #4- I doubt if you read the same article that I read.
    To partner up the boys, one learning and one serving is the most beautiful thing.
    please reread the article!
