Biased SNL Parodies Ocasio Cortez But Don't Mention Her Name

This character is clearly Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, who is so comical she had to be parodied, but being so one sided and biased, SNL left her name off the sketch:

Kiruv Movements .. Step aside ... Biggest Kiruv Is From Wave of Anti-Semitism Bringing Secular UK Jews Closer To Judaism

 For most of her adult life, Rachel Riley was only vaguely aware of her Jewish ancestry.
A moderately famous daytime game show television host, Riley, 33, is one of countless unaffiliated Jews in the United Kingdom — a country with 250,000 Jewish citizens and where synagogue attendance is at a historic low.

“When I was a kid my mum would give us pepperoni pizza,” she told The Times of London in an interview published Saturday, pointing out that she didn’t keep kosher.
On Hanukkah, she added, “We’d light the menorah candles but we didn’t go to synagogue and I’ve never done Friday night [Shabbat].”

But after experiencing anti-Semitic abuse online for criticizing Britain’s liberal Labour party — whose far-left leader Jeremy Corbyn has been called anti-Semitic for his rhetoric and anti-Israel views — Riley was compelled to speak out, including in parliament last week, against the proliferation of that hatred and about how it has affected her own family.

Hell has officially frozen over

Hell has quite literally frozen over in Michigan.
A small community in the Midwestern state with the devilish name of Hell felt temperatures drop to 9 below zero on Wednesday with wind chills as low as 40 below.
The town, about 25 miles Northwest of Ann Arbor, is dealing with the brutal blast of cold air pummeling the area.
The polar vortex is the coldest Arctic air to hit the area a generation, according to The Weather Channel.
The deep freeze has caused at least four deaths while forcing schools and government offices to close and leaving thousands without power.

Frum teen found dead in Manchester was not murdered


Police in Manchester, England say the death of an Orthodox Jewish teenager is no longer being investigated as a murder case, after she was found dead in an abandoned building.

Sixteen-year-old Sarah Goldman was reported missing at 9:25 a.m. Monday morning. At a quarter to 10 that same morning, her body was found in abandoned Manchester building. Police say Goldman had been hanged to death.
Goldman, a student at Yavneh Girls in King David High School in Crumpsall, was described as “lovely, bright, intelligent, and well-mannered”.

Local authorities arrested a 41-year-old man they said was suspected in Goldman’s murder.

While police initially investigated Goldman’s death as a murder, on Tuesday Manchester police said there was no signs of foul play, and that the case was no longer treated as a murder investigation.
The 41-year-old man arrested in the case has been freed without charges, police said.

House Democrats to Strike ‘So Help Me God’ from Oath

A draft of a new committee rules package expected to be approved this week would strike the phrase, “So help me God,” from the oath witnesses take when they testify before the House Committee on Natural Resources.

Fox News says it received an exclusive copy of the committee’s draft that places the phrase in red brackets, a sign the words are slated to be eliminated.
If the phrase is cut, the House Committee on Natural Resources would ask witnesses to state only: “Do you solemnly swear or affirm, under penalty of law, that the testimony that you are about to give is the truth, the whole truth, and nothing but the truth?”
The full committee will vote on the elimination of “So help me God” this week, and the rule would take effect immediately, says the report.
Reacting to the news of the removal of the reference to God, House Republican Conference Chair Liz Cheney of Wyoming said, “It is incredible, but not surprising, that the Democrats would try to remove God from committee proceedings in one of their first acts in the majority.”
“They really have become the party of Karl Marx,” she added.

Jerusalem announces $27k program to feed street cats


The Jerusalem municipality has announced a program to feed the city’s thousands of stray cats, in an initiative slammed by experts who say it will merely exacerbate the problem.
According to a statement issued by the municipality last week, designated feeding stations will be set up around the city in areas where trash cans are now buried underground, and residents are welcome to add food and water in addition to the supplies left by the municipality.
With a budget of NIS 100,000 (approximately $27,000) to be spent over the course of the year, the municipality will supply seven sacks of dry food per day for the city’s felines — an annual total of 2,500 bags of feed.
“When I understood the magnitude of the problem and the great distress caused, I decided to take up the task immediately,” said Jerusalem Mayor Moshe Lion in the statement.

The Gullible Chassidishe Rebbetzin (Ex-Guy) Makes Kiddush For Linda Soursor the Anti-Semite

Michal Zernowitski, 38,Frum Lady from Bnei Brak Running For Knesset Seat and supports public transportation on Shabbat and Gay Marriage


DIN: I support her...... Absolutely .....
What?????? You crazy????

No I'm not crazy .... you don't understand Israeli politics ....
And Israeli politics is no different than New York politics ....
Do you guys know that my opinion aligns with the Gerrer, Belz and even ... hold on to your hats ..... The Late Rav Shach z"l!!!!!
And it aligns with most of the ............shhhhhhh!!! don't tell anyone ...
Chareidie Tzibber ...

Yes absolutely .... How many times did the previous and now Gerrer and Belzer Rebbes support Leftist Candidates in Israel including Peres ... knowing full well that they are progressives supporting "Chillul Shabbos" and Gay marriage ....??????

Hey ... In New York ...didn't the Chassidim all endorse Mayor DeBlasio for mayor???? A supporter of all perverse and deviant crazies??

Back to Israel.... do you guys know that Rav Shach was politically a leftist who supported giving back big chunks of land to the Arabs?? 
No .... not his house..... No not Ponivitz .... that he wouldn't give back but he supported giving back the house of some poor shzlub who worked day and night to support his family ...and he was a supporter and attempted many times to join in the coalition of leftist parties and so did all Chareidei Rabbis ...

Now .. I'll let you into a secret ..... 
In my town Bet Shemesh .... who won as Mayor????
Why... you would ask ... didn't all Chareidie leaders ask their sheep to vote for the dummy and parrot Abutbul??
Yes ... they did...
but for whom did they vote for?????
They voted for the lady Dr. Aliza Bloch, secretly ...
How do I know? I know for two reasons ....
1... she couldn't win without the Chareidim... and finally the Newspapers reported the votes .. district by district ...

Who won in Haifa???? Who won in Yerusalayim???
In Haifa a leftist chilonie lady, that had the Chareidie votes, overwhelmingly. 
And in Yerushalayim the Chareidim ignored the "Big bearded" Deutch and voted  for a borderline frum guy by the name of Leon ...

The facts don't lie.... the typical Chareidie is no longer following the advise of the "Gedoilim" or the "Rabbanim" led by greedy askanim... and they are voting for the best person for the job ... even if the candidate  ignores  "Chillul Shabbos" etc ...

And as for you Americans ... don't lecture us here in Israel why we vote for candidates whose main concern is for the welfare of all Israelis even if they are "mecahallel Shabbos" ...
because in the past while the "Gedoilim" were screaming "SHABBOS SHABBOS" they were secretly negotiating with the leftist communists to join in their coalitions .......
Now ... listen carefully ... the Gedoilim who are run by their noses by the "Askanim" ... don't care about Shabbos, don't care about gay marriage, and don't even care about the Army ...
all they care is "how much $$$$$$$$ is in it for us?"

We figured it all out finally!!!

Go for it Michal ... Go for it Girl ..... Hope you win!!



She backs public transportation on Shabbat, supports gay marriage and civil unions, rues the gender separation in ultra-Orthodox academic colleges, and is adamant a peace deal with the Palestinians is entirely within reach — if only Israel wills it.
Altogether, hers are not particularly eyebrow-raising positions for a Labor candidate in the opposition party’s upcoming primaries. But when said candidate happens to be an ultra-Orthodox mother of four, some may find their foreheads involuntarily furrowed.
It’s a reaction that Michal Zernowitski, 38, is accustomed to. And one the former computer programmer hopes to change with her campaign, under the banner “Shattering Conventions.”
“I’m in the Labor party and not United Torah Judaism and Shas,” she remarked of her liberal and dovish views in a recent interview with The Times of Israel, and “it’s not only because there is no room there [in those parties] for women.”
At her campaign headquarters in south Tel Aviv, part of a shared working space, a handwritten sign on the door reads, “We’ll do our part, and God will do the rest.”

Watch: Undercover forces arrest firebomb throwers on Pisgat Zev Road

Border Police officers stationed in the Shuafat refugee camp in Jerusalem embarked on an operation to arrest rioters who throw Molotov Cocktails.

The forces acted after the Israel Police recently investigated a surge of cases in which a number of suspects arrived at the outskirts of the refugee camp and hurled Molotov cocktails at vehicles traveling on the Moshe Dayan road towards Pisgat Ze'ev, near the refugee camp.

Three Arabs arrested in connection with synagogue vandalism

Three Arabs have been arrested on suspicion of involvement in the desecration of the synagogue in the Kiryat Yovel neighborhood of Jerusalem, Channel 12 News reported on Tuesday.
According to the report, the police believe that the background to the break-in and the desecration of the Torah scrolls is criminal rather than nationalistic.

The vandals broke into the synagogue overnight, causing heavy damage to the furniture and the Torah scrolls.
In addition to the synagogue’s Torah scrolls, numerous prayer books were damaged or destroyed.
Synagogue officials notified local police, and an investigation into the break-in has been opened.

Jerusalem Mayor Moshe Lion said, "This morning we were notified of a shocking incident of the desecration of a synagogue and the destruction of Torah scrolls in Kiryat Yovel. This is a grave event that is reminiscent of dark periods of the Jewish people. We will not permit such crimes to take place in our times.


Sarah Goldman Murdered and Hung in Manchester

A Frum girl was found dead in an abandoned building in Manchester, England.
The girl, a student at Yavneh Girls at Manchester’s King David High School, told her family that she was going to use her school’s gym early on Monday morning, around 5 a.m., the Manchester Evening News reported.
She was reported missing to police at 9:25 on Monday morning, and her body was found by a family member about 20 minutes later, according to the report. The building in which her body was found is close to the girl’s home.
It is suspected that the girl, identified as Sarah Goldman, was found hanged, according to the newspaper.
A 41-year-old man was arrested on suspicion of murder, but later released on bail. “We are still keeping an open mind and will be exploring all avenues,” a police spokesman said. “We are trying to piece together this puzzle and help give the girl’s family the answers they deserve.”
The Jewish school said in a statement that students were being offered support in the wake of the death. It said that “Sarah was a lovely, bright, intelligent and well-mannered pupil and she will be hugely missed by everyone at school.”

ISRAELI SCIENTISTS FIND CURE FOR CANCER.... BDS & Satmar Hope They Don't Get Sick!

A small team of Israeli scientists think they might have found the first complete cure for cancer.

“We believe we will offer in a year’s time a complete cure for cancer,” said Dan Aridor, of a new treatment being developed by his company, Accelerated Evolution Biotechnologies Ltd. (AEBi), which was founded in 2000 in the ITEK incubator in the Weizmann Science Park. AEBi developed the SoAP platform, which provides functional leads to very difficult targets.

“Our cancer cure will be effective from day one, will last a duration of a few weeks and will have no or minimal side-effects at a much lower cost than most other treatments on the market,” Aridor said. “Our solution will be both generic and personal.”

It sounds fantastical, especially considering that an estimated 18.1 million new cancer cases are diagnosed worldwide each year, according to reports by the International Agency for Research on Cancer. Further, every sixth death in the world is due to cancer, making it the second leading cause of death (second only to cardiovascular disease).

A video of the Chief Rabbi singing Lecha Dodi with school children from across the country has become an internet hit, with more than 30,000 views of the film in just a week. 

The video captures the Chief Rabbi’s tour of primary schools across the country at the end of 2018, which saw pupils performing a special version of the well-known Shabbat song, which was composed and recorded especially for ShabbatUK, taking place on March 1st and 2nd 2019 when it will feature for the first time in synagogues.

Many of the Jewish primary schools who have learnt the new rendition of the Shabbat anthem will get the chance to sing with the Chief Rabbi in the coming weeks, as the preparation and excitement for the next Shabbat UK kicks off. The school tour saw the Chief Rabbi visit 25 schools across the country from Liverpool to London, leading the sing-a-long as he encourages everyone to participate in Shabbat UK.

The catchy music video features more than 5000 children and has proven popular on social media, with over 30,000 views and more than 200 shares on Facebook alone.
The all-new version of Lecha Dodi was composed and recorded by Israeli rock band Shtar, which found fame on the Israeli TV show ‘HaKokhav HaBa’.

Frum Guy With "Langeh Rekel" jumps into Ocean and saves surfer.... Captured on Film




A Frum surfer who decided that he wasn't going to surf on the Herzliya beach, due to the water's height,  saved the life of another surfer.
At 10:13, a report was received at the MDA 101 center in the Yarkon area: "A surfer was injured during a surfing, after apparently hitting the breakwater south of the marina in Herzliya."
The rescue organization's statement said paramedics and paramedics provided medical treatment and evacuated a 42-year-old man to Ichilov Hospital in a moderate condition, with bruises all over his body.
Dramatic images published by the photographer Nissim Aton reveal the exciting human drama in this story. A man with a full ultra-Orthodox appearance, could be seen fighting the waves, wearing his long coat deep in the sea .
"The same ultra-Orthodox man came to the beach to surf, but after a while he surfed, he noticed that the situation at the sea was dangerous -  so he got out of the water, sat on Beach to rest ".
And here the drama began: "After a few minutes sitting there, he noticed that there was another surfer, who was actually drowning."
Without hesitation, the ultra-Orthodox  "He jumped into the water to save the surfer who drowned, and at the end of all the effort he succeeded."
It was Nissim Eton, the photographer, who summoned Magen David Ador , while he also managed to document the drama, which, as stated, ended well: the life of the Israeli who drowned was saved.
Another photographer, Dror Ezra, wrote: "At the southern beach in Herzliya, a regular surfer got in trouble and got stuck on the rocks, was badly wounded and was evacuated in an ambulance ... I did not see what happened, "I do not know his name, but he definitely deserves a medal and appreciation," the photographer added excitedly in a post he published.

Entenmann's Donuts Gets Hechsher Again !

The largest baking company in the United States will be keeping kosher certification on nearly all of its bread and rolls after all, JTAreported on Friday.

Bimbo Bakeries USA was set to remove kosher certification from major bread labels like Arnold and Sara Lee this year, but will no longer be doing so. The reversal comes after talks with the two kosher agencies that certified the bread, the Orthodox Union and Kof-K, according to the report.

“After hearing from our loyal kosher consumers and after productive meetings with our kosher certifiers, Bimbo Bakeries USA is pleased to announce that we will once again be offering kosher products under the Arnold, Sara Lee and Ball Park brands,” the company announced.

Bimbo Bakeries USA produces brands including Arnold, Sara Lee, Stroehmann, Freihofer's and others. It also produces Entenmann's and Thomas which would have remained certified kosher even if the kosher certification on the other brands were to be removed.

Officials at the kosher agencies told JTA last year that Bimbo bread labels were crucial for consumers outside major Jewish population centers who want kosher-certified bread.
Bimbo Bakeries USA is the US division of Grupo Bimbo, the Mexican company that is the world’s largest bakery.


Ancient coin With The Name Of Chashmonim King found on school trip


A student found the ancient coin in the eastern part of the stream during a recent school trip to the Shilo Valley.

The student asked the group’s tour guide about the coin, who then contacted the officer in charge of the Archeology Staff of the Civil Administration who came to the group. The student then handed the coin over.

The coin seems to be from the time of Agrippa I, who was a descendant of the Hasmonean dynasty from the Hanukkah story and the grandson of Herod. He ruled Judea in the 40s of the first century CE.

The coin has three stalks minted on one side, and the other side has a royal canopy surrounded by the inscription “King Agrippa.”.

“It is an exciting find. Every archaeological find has a story behind it that sheds light on the history of Land of Israel and the Nation of Israel,” said Hananya Hezmi, an officer of the archaeology staff at the Civil Administration.

“Findings like these complete another part of the historical puzzle of our people.”

No Holds Barr ....Roseanne Barr visits Jerusalem's Old City ... Praises Settlers!



The actress Roseanne Barr on Sunday morning visited the Wittenberg House in the Muslim quarter of Jerusalem, run by Ateret Cohanim.

Roseanne is being hosted by Minister of Culture and Sport Miri Regev.

Roseanne asked to visit the special house, also known as the Ariel Sharon House, because of the fact that the national writer Mark Twain stayed there in 1867 during his travels in the "Holy Land" which he famously documented in his book "The Innocents Abroad."

Barr is being accompanied by "America's rabbi" Rabbi Shmuley Boteach, the founder of the World Values ​​Network, which is financing the visit.

Deri supported transferring the money to Hamas

He presents himself as a right-wing man, but when he sits in the cabinet he represents the left, his positions are all left-wing.

Last week in a cabinet meeting he supported transferring the money to Hamas.

Anyone who votes for Shas as long as Deri is in his head votes for a left-wing party, and only a fool would believe him!

Day Yoimie Snippets ... Chullin 54, 55, 56,57,58, 59, & 60


Ladies ... here is an opportunity to test your husbands and see if he really goes to the daf....

This is a good opportunity for the entire family to share thoughts on the daf ... so that the family feels united by discussing what the head of the house is studying.  
I try to break it down so that everyone can understand it .... however this particular tractate is difficult ... so I'm trying my best...
You can copy and print this without my consent, since Torah belongs to all of us.....

"Rav" 

On this daf, the Talmud relates that Resh Lakish and Reb Yochanan were sitting in the Bet Medrash and were discussing halachois in the name of Rav!

Who was Rav?

Rav was born in Baval and his actual name was Rav Abba bar Aiyvoh .... he was called "Rav" because he was the Rebbe of the entire Jewish people that lived in Galut!

R' Chiyah who was the distinct student of Reb Yehuda Ha'Nasie was Rav's uncle.
When R' Chiyah decided to make Aliyah, he took his nephew, Rav, with him and placed him in the Yeshivah of Reb Yehuda Ha'Nasie, where Rav thrived and became a great talmudic scholar. 

Rav decided to return to Baval, his birthplace, but not before he received "Smicha" from Reb Yehuda Ha'Nasie which gave him the license to Judge and to Teach.

After a couple years in Baval, Rav again returned to Eretz Yisroel to continue his studies with Reb Yehuda and after R' Yehuda's demise, Rav continued learning with Rav Gamliel Ha'Nasie the son of R' Yehuda. 
He then returned to Baval once more.

Leftists Now Fighting the "MAGA" Hats ...

Earlier this week we commented on the controversy involving an "Alter Kocker" Native American "veteran" banging his drum in the face of a high school kid wearing a “Make America Great Again” hat.
Leftists were outraged and accused the kid of racism. There were many vicious tweets—some calling for violence against the kid and his high school, including some death threats. 
Then the Indian vet was shown to be a fraud. He didn’t serve in Vietnam and in fact he was a professional protestor and agitator. He aggressively zoomed in on the hat-wearing kid to provoke a reaction, to be used against Trump and his supporters. 
I thought the story would quickly die down once it was proven that the Indian was the aggressor. I expected the Deep State media to ignore the story since it wasn’t going their way, but the reporting dragged on. I began to realize it wasn’t about the kids at all, but rather the MAGA hats they wore.

New Muslim Rep Omar Had Asked Judge for Leniency Toward Men Trying to Join ISIS

Embattled congressional freshman Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-Minn.) once asked a judge to show leniency toward a group of Minnesota men accused of trying to join the Islamic State terror group.
“The best deterrent to fanaticism is a system of compassion,” Omar wrote at the time. “We must alter our attitude and approach; if we truly want to effect change, we should refocus our efforts on inclusion and rehabilitation.”
The nine Minnesota men were facing decades in prison after being accused in 2015 of making plans, including buying fake passports, in an effort to travel to Syria and fight for ISIS, which was at its peak level of activity and held territory in Syria and Iraq.
Omar, who was then a Minnesota state representative, was part of a group that sent letters to Judge Michael Davis urging him to give shorter sentences, arguing that harsher penalties would only lead to more people joining the terror group.

FBI In Helmets & Swat Teams Arrest An Old Man With Glasses in Pajamas ! Stone Indictment Shows Mueller Is ‘Virtually Failing,’ Says Dershowitz

Special counsel Robert Mueller’s indictment of former Trump adviser Roger Stone shows that Mueller (shown above right) “has virtually failed” to fulfill his purpose of uncovering crimes that occurred prior to his appointment, Harvard Law school professor emeritus Alan Dershowitz (above left) said Friday morning on Fox News’ “America’s Newsroom.”
FBI in helmets and with sharpshooters  raided Stone’s home in Florida and arrested him on Friday. Stone opened the door with his glasses and was in pajamas.... 
Stone was released on a $250,000 bond. He served as an adviser to Donald Trump during his 2016 presidential campaign.

Naftali Moster "crying" That Isaac Abraham is Threatening Him!

I don't like complaining or playing the victim card, but I think occasionally it's important to share with the public the stress affiliated with my work because I do count on your support and encouragement to get by. I usually don't show it, but at times it's pretty unbearable.
Every single day I worry where the next attack or threat will come from. There are times where I obsessively have to check our security cameras and check on family members to see if they're ok.
I know people are accustomed to this and practically expect me to be the target of attacks, both character attacks and potentially physical ones. Friends ask me all the time what precautions I take to ensure mine and my family's safety. When I go around speaking in synagogues and other places I often get asked point blank “how are you not dead?” But none of this is normal, and it's sad that we expect so little professionalism and restraint from our opponents who are defending the status quo in the Yeshivas. My counterparts in other advocacy groups, such as Alliance for Quality Education, don't receive these threats (I think). My counterparts at Masbia don't face these threats (I imagine). Unfortunately to the contrary, it's people like the father & son Rappaport who attack me daily.
I have spent a lot more time on the phone and in person with police and detectives than I'd like to or than I should have to. And these things aren't clear cut. When you find the person who made a direct threat at you, you don't really get to celebrate or make an example out of them.
Like that time I got an explicit death threat in Yiddish in a voicemail. No one knows this part of the story: The police tracked him down to a home in Williamsburg. He begged me not to press charges, so I asked him to make a public apology. He wrote me a letter apologizing, but in it he begged me not to make it public because he's a divorcee and in his community that's already a huge stigma which would be exacerbated. What am I going to do? Ruin his life? He's a victim of the system.
Then there was an incident that happened a few weeks ago when someone emailed Yaffed and cursed me to get a disease and die a painful death. Many people saw that email. What you don't know is that less than 24 hours later a man by that last name showed up at my home while I was away and dropped off a strange little package of homemade food with my unsuspecting wife (who didn't know his last name matched the one of the email sender). The terror that I experienced when I got the innocent call from my wife that some nice guy dropped off food for me, and me realizing that other than that email I don't know anyone by that last name. So we spent Friday night filing a complaint with a police officer because we weren't sure what was in the food. The crazy thing is it may have been a fan, someone who meant well. And that's the most disturbing thing that we can't appreciate a good gesture (if it was). Again, there's no resolution to that mystery.
Then there's this “spokesperson,” Isaac Abraham (see pic) and his not-so-subtle threat. And the army of Twitter trolls, including an elected official from Rockland county, who share my pictures, my cell number, my former home address, my salary etc. Now they're going over old tweets and stuff. You wonder how much money they spend trying to dig up or fabricate dirt on you, to destroy you, so that you can't keep up your work.
If there's one person out there who can handle this kind of stress, I'm sure I've proven to be that person. But why should I have to?
Again, if we expect this from them, it's because we've gotten used to it and have a low regard for the community and/or its leaders. I, for one, don't accept the status quo, and I expect there to be a certain level of professionalism where we can argue and disagree on the issues without intimidating and attacking those advocating for change.
Sorry for the rant.
Share widely if you agree.
