Money Matters

  • Is it OK to be “buying out someone else’s mitzvahâ€? so you can do it yourself? (The Jerusalem Post)
  • The Jerusalem Symphony Orchestra “an institution that celebrates collective achievement and personal brilliance…a bridge between Israel and the world, breaching barriers of language, culture and customâ€? faces disbandment owing to lack of money. (Haaretz)
  • The two leading organizations promoting immigration from North America to Israel, Jewish Agency and Nefesh B’Nefesh, are no longer allied, but instead are gearing up for a bitter competition over money. (The Jewish Week)
  • Purses with a 100 shekel note and a phone number were dropped in various cities. In the Haredi town of Bnai Brak, all five were returned; in Beersheba, none of the five were. (Ynet)
