BAGEL STORE Continued from Front Cover we get there from here. Maybe we first have to define where here is. In Israel, just three weeks ago, I was privileged to spend part of a day with Arieh King of the Israel Land Authority. Arieh is a powerhouse and a man fiercely dedicated to that rebuilding along with the ancillary requirement that if the Temple is to be rebuilt, Jerusalem must be a Jewish city. I was wondering the other day what the best way is to communicate what Mr. King does and how he

cause the Israeli government does not want to ruffle any international feathers. Mr. Ezra is now 96 years old. He never married and does not have a family. Arieh King and his staff of attorneys worked tirelessly to retrace the paperwork and demonstrate that the extended Arab family that resided on the propertythe Natsheh familyhad done so illegally for decades. We did not want anything from them, no back rent, no payment for the way in which they tried to destroy and ruin the property, he says.

In this case, temporary means numerous years. Nitzan is the town where hundreds of expellees are still living. I think by now they have a grocery store. But not much else.

But for them, tikun olam, saving the world, really means impressing the gentiles with their humanistic values, their progressive values, while, forgive the slang, throwing their fellow Jews under the bus. So, I expected nothing from them and I was not disappointed in my expectations. Moshe said that the ones who broke his heart were our own Torahobservant Jews.

The Jewish nation is both celebrating the finishing of some 2,700 pages of the Talmud, as well as planning to celebrate Shabbos Nachamu. Finishing a tractate of the Talmud is discussed as a most joyous occasion in and of itself in the Gemara, and being joyous and celebrating Shabbos Nachamu is also a custom with deep historical roots.

Messages of the Torah Leaders at the Siyum HaShas in Tel Avivs Yad Eliyahu Stadium BY RABBI YOSEF EFRATI The feelings of joy at the Yad Eliyahu stadium were tempered by the conspicuous absence of HaGaon Rav Elyashiv, ztl. Rav Elyashiv played a major role in the founding and success of the Dirshu Kinyan Halacha program. The Kinyan Halacha program created a structured system that guides participants in studying the difficult topics of Shulchan Aruch. At the event, I cited the Gemara in Brochos 3b

away, the Torahs honor left the world together with him. Why was Rabbi Akiva given this title The Gemara tells us that Rabbi Akiva sought to expound on each section and detail of the Torah, right down to the crowns that adorn the various letters in a sefer Torah. The title of the Torahs honor is bequeathed to one who seeks to generate honor through every part of the Torah. In our times, it is Dirshu and its leadership that deserves that title, through all of its various programs. Rabbi Yechezkel

Finishing Shas on French Hill BY RABBI NACHMAN SELTZER Over ten thousand people gathered at the Yerushalayim Siyum HaShas Hamerkazi this Tuesday evening in Yerushalayims French Hill neighborhood. This event is the latest in a string of phenomenally wellattended gatherings, and it offered a charm and inspiration all its own. Crowds of mostly Israeli bnei Torah attended, and spirits were high in the impromptu arena that was constructed especially for the evening. While the weather might have prove

The breaking of the Luchos caused a change Prior to their destruction there was no element of toil in Torah study, but now toil became an integral component of Torah.

Voting, Our Most Potent Weapon BY ASHER E. TAUB, ESQ. The Jewish vote was once considered the most powerful weapon in politics. The consistently high turnout by Jews at the voting booth made securing the Jewish vote critical for any politician aspiring to attain or remain in office. Unfortunately, this has come to an end.

Cities Of Refuge From The Other Side Of The Bench BY DAVID J. SEIDEMANN, ESQ . I have always been fascinated by the concept in Jewish law of the Arei Miklat, the Cities of Refuge.

On the 15th of Av, after the first generation of Jews that entered Israel passed away, this ban was

Question Texting and email have become a primary form of communication in todays society. We rely on it heavily for work, keeping in touch with friends, and even building relationships from scratch. In the notsodistant future, textbased messages may become the norm and phone calls or facetoface communication thought of as a quaint, nonessential way to get in touch. The question becomes when and how to implement this form of contact into dating. On the one hand, the written word provides a way to

express in texting language all that is bubbling in your heart. You can do all that, because it feels safe. You are not talking to a human being. You are not exercising facial muscles, especially eye contact, when conveying your feelings. You are merely exerting your fingers to tap letters and symbols. My advice to the modernday single is to not underestimate the oldfashioned methods in dating. If you took a poll, you would find that people who date facetoface or by phone reap the highest relati
