Messianic Book Breaks Into Mainstream

Israelis read a lot, more than most nations, and this week it’s “Shavua Hasefer,” the national book week where tables and displays are put out in every town, village and city square across the country for an entire week, attracting massive numbers of Jewish bookworms waiting to dive into the latest yarn. On the tables across the country we can find a new Messianic publication in Hebrew which translates, “Animals Do Their Thing.” Written and published by the Messianic Jewish publishing house Hachotam, located on a kibbutz in the sout

Agenda stalled, progressive Jews plan Western Wall protest prayer

With a deal to create an egalitarian space at the Western Wall stalled in the face of ultra-Orthodox pressure, pluralistic Jewish leaders have called for a mass prayer service to be held Thursday adjacent to the Orthodox-run prayer plaza, in contravention of the usual practice at the site. Reform and Conservative leaders “will gather in the large plaza behind the mehitza [separation]-divided prayer area,” at 5 p.m., according to a blog post by rabbis Pamela Frydman and Stanley Davids published on The Times of Israel. The mo

Israel’s cash-strapped Christian schools to get helping hand

Christian schools in Israel that say they face financial collapse over the state’s failure to make good on a funding pledge could be saved by the intervention of Social Equality Minister Gila Gamliel, The Times of Israel has learned. The network of 47 schools, which are almost all Catholic and cater to some 33,000 mostly Muslim children, took strike action at the start of the current school year last September over budget cuts that officials said amounted to hundreds of millions of shekels.

Knesset members to resume Temple Mount visits

An eight-month ban on political leaders visiting the Temple Mount is likely to be lifted by the end of June. The Knesset Ethics Committee is set to vote Tuesday on ending the restriction it imposed on lawmakers last October amid escalating violence over the flashpoint Jerusalem holy site, including Palestinian terror attacks against Israelis and violent confrontations between security forces and Palestinians in the West Bank. The move also follows a declaration last month by several MKs from the Arab Joint List that they would visit th
