Hatzalah Bet Shemesh unemploys its Shabbos goy ambulance driver

Hatzalah Bet Shemesh put out an important notice.

It reads:
IMPORTANT MESSAGE FROM HATZALA BEIT SHEMESH:
Due to the current security situation in Jerusalem, we have been advised by our Rabbonim that we will not be using our Shabbos goy this week.
Therefore, due to an issue of Techum Shabbos, should you believe that there will be a need for you to go to the hospital on Shabbos, you should prepare any items you plan on taking with you to the hospital before Shabbos, and making them hefker.

The "hefker" issue seems like a loophole innovation. Make your stuff hefker, privately of course so nobody else should claim your stuff, take it with you, then reclaim it when you arrive in Jerusalem?

Regarding the main point, it might perhaps be time to start training other non-Jews, besides for Arabs, to be ambulance drivers. Then they would be able to continue employing the non-Jewish driver while not compromising security.

I guess we will see how long this lasts for. Is there a purpose in getting rid of him for one week? Maybe that assumes things will calm down quickly. If not, I imagine this announcement will be extended until the situation does calm down.

carrying your phone on Shabbos

One of the immediate results of the brutal terror attack in Jerusalem the other is a higher level of consciousness regarding security.

People are pressuring police to check constructions sites or gathering spots for Arab workers, and make sure all workers are legal and safe. In Ashkelon the mayor said he won't allow Arab workers, which might be impossible and a bit overboard, but that's what he said. The number of security guards will surely be increased in public areas.

Most interestingly, the Rav of Ramot D, Rav Mendel Fuchs, has instructed his congregants that for safety purposes they should come to shul with their cellphones in their pants pockets, in case something should God forbid happen. If there is any question of a safety issue , the police should immediately be called, and not even with the employment of a shinui.

I guess this is the type of situation when that Shabbos App would come in handy..

And, no, I don't think you are allowed to check Faecbook or email during the long mussaf, between aliyahs, or during the rabbi's speech.

I dont know if the above psak applies only to kosher cellphones or if you can carry even non-kosher cellphones. Ask your local Orthodox rabbi.

Choosing to be offended (video)

Pat Condell's latest video, Choosing to be Offended, does not have anything to do with Israel, so it does not really belong here. I am posting it because he says something very similar, though far more eloquently to something I said recently, asking why only the Muslims have the right to be offended by things they don't like, to the point where they justify murder, terror, riots and violence by saying someone offended them.

Learn to Love [The Portnoy Brothers] (video)


PRESS RELEASE / STATEMENT

As we release our debut single we were conflicted as to whether or not we should delay the release further. Jerusalem’s heart is bleeding. Our thoughts and prayers are with all the victims and families struck by recent horrifying terror attacks.

This is a battle of dark vs light. We have to believe in the strength of humanity as difficult as it may be in such dark times. We have no choice but to reach out and to form a coalition with anyone and everyone who seeks light, humanity, compassion and the development of civilization.

We must not tolerate violence. What we must do is spread sweetness where there is evil and shine light where there is dark.

What we can do is Learn to love more, share more, smile more…be more.

This is not a political message. This is a human one. If we fail to reach out to the other, we fail in our humanity.

This is our song "Learn to Love”, accompanied by the video, shot in Jerusalem.
May joy and light be restored to Jerusalem speedily. We hope this can contribute in some way.

It will also be available for the first 24 hours on free download here.

With love from broken hearted Jerusalem the Golden,
praying for peace…
The Portnoy Brothers

this post definitely raises an interesting question. There are calls out, here in Bet Shemesh as the post refers to but also elsewhere around the country including in Haredi enclaves, to stop employing Arabs and to stop supporting stores that continue to employ them.

All these people, including many Haredim, are they still going to be makpid about buying only Arab produce and no Jewish produce (hetter mechira and otzar haaretz)? Will the same people now stop supporting the Arab produce industry? Will the same people now stop supporting the Arab terror industry?

It is definitely a paradox, to boycott Arab employment but to only buy Arab produce.
It is definitely something to think about.

machlokes among the chief rabbis about security guards in shuls

Interesting machlokes between the chief rabbis of Israel as a result of yesterday's terrorist attack.

Chief Rabbi Yizchak Yosef announced that every shul  should try to get armed guards standing at the entrance. As well, until the situation changes, one should give priority to davening in a shul that has security. This has priority under the commandment of guarding yourself.

Chief Rabbi Dovid Lau said that we cannot allow it to happen that shuls should have security guards, as they must abroad. People around the country go to shuls and daven and learn, around the clock, and that cannot be allowed to stop because of some bloodthirsty terrorists. The security forces will do their jobs.
