    The Low Value of the Process of the Primaries

    I closely followed the primary elections in the Bayit Yehudi Party, in terms of both my political interests and my personal acquaintance with some of the candidates, and I am upset by the process involved and by the disappointment of many men and women who participated. I assume that a similar situation exists in other parties which have primaries, opening up a competitive free market for those who want to be members of the Israeli Knesset. On the other hand there is an alternative mechanism of a "scepter" granting a "reserved" spot on the slate – some will be chosen by having "the King stretch out his golden scepter to him" (see Esther 4:11).

    I have the greatest sympathy for the large expenses that every candidate was forced to expend in order to support his or her candidacy and to glorify his traits – an amount that is estimated to be more than a hundred thousand Shekels each (in the Bayit Yehudi Party). Those who were not selected threw away a large sum of money. The incumbents – who have already demonstrated their skills in the past – were forced to pay the full price in order to make sure that they will be able to continue their work. And who knows if they will not be forced to once again dig into their savings or search for contributors in another year and a half?

    Give them Your Support / Rabbi Amichai Gordin
    The teachers and educators are carrying the burden of the future of our country. They need our support and appreciation. In recent times we, the Israeli society, have stopped providing them with this support.
    What is the Right Way to Express Criticism? / Chezi Cohen
    It is not easy to listen to criticism, and there is a danger that one who hears it will block his ears from listening. When we were children we used to block our ears with our fingers, and as we grew up we developed a broad range of tools to make it look as if we accepted criticism while meanwhile not allowing our hearts to listen.
