Shabbat Shalom

Time is running towards Shabbat and I was planning to write more. However, my wireless connection is not the best and I am in a kind of Shabbat hurry.

Therefore only some brief news:

1. The mother is still under house arrest. The Hadassah Ein Kerem Hospital is ready to release the child but there is a fight between the hospital and the psychiatrist Dr. Yaakov Weil who checked the mother. Dr. Weil confirmed that there is no "Muenchhausen Syndrom" and that the mother is free of any attention desire. Now Hadassah Ein Kerem claims that Dr. Weil was fired from their hospital four months ago and that his report may not be correct. The hospital obviously sees revenge attack against itself by Dr. Weil judging in favour of the Haredim.

2. New Jersey has its scandal withing the Syrian community and some money laundering going on.

3. I don't care too much about anything, as Shabbat is right ahead. Going to Jerusalem in the afternoon but mostly avoiding a Mea Shearim visit, as tensions are still high. I may go to the Belzer Tish, as the Belzer Rebbe is always on.

So far from hot and humid Tel Aviv. Tel Aviv and not "Chutz La'Aretz - abroad" or Sdom and Amora, as some people like to call the "white city" at the coast. Believe it or not, there are actually many good people (Jews) here as well.

Shabbat Shalom to all of you and especially Gut Schabbes to the mother under house arrest. I hope that each of the Markovitz family members is getting some rest and also enough food.


  1. You really disappointed me and the readers Miriam by showing kavod to the mother and to her family. It looks like you've finally been brainwashed like the rest of them.

    A few days ago, I was very much against the mother. She is guilty and that's it. The hospital claims to have a video and why shouldn't we believe the doctors.

    However, in the meantime, so many different opinions came up; countless "proves" in favour and against the mother.

    To make it very clear:
    It could be that the mother is guilty, it could be not.
    I don't know and we don't know.

    I am somewhere in the middel hoping that someone finds out the truth. Especially because of the child, as the family is getting together again.

    I wasn't brainwashed, and by the way, other told me that I've been brainwashed by those regarding the mother as guilty.

    In general, Shabbat is coming in very soon and I hope that everyone has a good one ! Even or also the mother.

    Shabbat Shalom - Gut Schabbes - to Everyone !!!

  3. But you didn't say "even" or "also" the mother, you said "especially" the mother, as if she's a tzaddeikes.

    The mother sees herself as a "Zaddeikes" and announced on Thursday that there is no need for her to cover her face anymore. She walked upright while entering court but Israeli papers cut out her face.

    However, I meant that more in a sarcastic sense. When you look at my last sentence, you will realize what I mean.
