In the past few weeks, I have had many posts in my head - so many things have come up that I want to share about the beauty of Eretz Yisrael, its people and public.
But BH life has also been so busy with those items, that I have not had time to type.
And today si Yom SHihrur Yerushalaim, about which I coudl write a book or two...
But I will write one at a time, starting with something I am seeing now:
An ad for a Yom Limud v'Iyun on the subject of police service on Shabbat.
This past year, graduated the first class of a new program, trainign religious Jews to serve in the Police. The program is called Ma-aminim ba'mishtara, which translates to both "Believers in the Police" and "believing in the police". Love lashon hakodesh!!!
The Yom Limud v'Iyun is being coordinated jointly by Mechinat Elisha which runs the course, and an organization called Torah Acharei haTzava. Yes, there is life, and Torah, during one's army service, thanks to the mechinot, yeshivot hesder adn rabbanut tzvait, and there is Torah after the army, informally and with the help of a wonderful group of people who describe their mission as "to integrate Torah in real life."
The learning will take place BEH tomorrow, Thursday, 29 Iyar at the yeshivat Hesder in Modiin, Rehov Emek Beit She'an 53. The program is as follows (yes, in Hebrew):
3:30 Rav Asher Melamed , Rav of the Police Mercaz District, "the value of integrating Shomrei Torah uMitzvot into the Israeli police"
4:00 Aluf Mishne (res.) Rav Eliezer Shenwald, Rosh Yeshivat Hesder Modiin, "Faith and Internal Security"
4:30 Rav Yaacov Ariel, Rav of Ramat Gan, "Halachic Challenges in the Security Services of the State of Israel"
