  1. First complain that the Charedim dont work and then complain when they want to get
    a degree in order that they will be able to work!

    Moslem demands.
    Thank Heaven I AM NOT Politically CORRECT and can still think straight!

  2. Mrs. Shalom (daughter of Chacham Yosef) has done a terrific service for the Torah Kehilla in Eretz Yisroel by offering training, education and degree oriented school. Kol will work out well.

  3. this is the same thing as the army. they want charedim to enlist, and yet we see they do not accomidate those who have already enlisted.
