Times Of Israel: In fight for the soul of a divided city, a religious woman steps into the ring
Debra Kamin, July 31, 2013
Aliza Bloch, a mother-of-four and a former school principal, is running for mayor of Beit Shemesh. Only this political novice, her supporters say, can save it from escalating ultra-Orthodox intolerance.
Esser Agaroth (2¢):
Why is her neckline so low?
Why are her elbows not covered?
Why is she wearing a red dress? How short is it, I wonder?
Why doesn't she cover her hair properly (ie. according to halakhah)?
And why is she running for mayor?
Oh, I get it. She's religious as in a "Whateva! I do what I want!" sort of way.
And, in my experience phrases like, escalating ultra-Orthodox intolerance" translate very nice into "justified Haredi-bashing.
