Haredi Headlines this Week


Headlines of the haredi (ultra - Orthodox) weekly magazine "Mishpacha - Family":
The death of the famous Israeli Rabbi, Rabbi Mordechai Zemach Eliyahu this week. Rabbi Eliyahu (81) lived in the Jerusalem Kiryat Moshe neighbourhood  and used to be the spiritual leader of the national religious Knesset party MAVDAL as well as the former Sephardi Chief Rabbi of Israel. His critics claim that within the past years, the Rabbi pushed the national religious movement more and more into a haredi direction. However, this wasn't always the case, as the Dati - Leumi (religious - zionist) movement has become much more frum than 60 or 70 years ago.
