New LG device based on censored Android version to be permitted for use by haredi businessmen as tiny portable computer for work-related purposes; voice calls to be blocked

from Israel Wullman

Published:  07.23.13, 13:47

After the “kosher” cellular phone being sold at ultra-Orthodox population centers in Israel and around the world, here comes the kosher smartphone: The new Android-powered phone will be used mainly by haredi businessmen and managers in need of routine updates for work-related purposes.

If all goes as planned, the device’s marketing will begin in about two months.

Several business groups are currently involved – separately – in a kosher smartphone initiative, but the most serious project appears to be that of veteran filtered Internet provider Nativ. The company is working on a unique Android version (ROM) which will be integrated into the LG L7 II smartphone.

The device comes with a 4.3-inch touch screen and 1…

THE SECOND CHANCE AND SECRET OF SUCCESS TO ALL OF HISTORY!

shidduch is never too late

Its never too late as there is always a second chance! So we already talked about returning home and opening the door with our Husband happily smiling to Wifey and the blessed kinderlach/ children/ boobalahs. Then there is a time of the week, really the climax of the week, the blessed day of rest, and the weekend, Shabbat / Shabbos. This is a whole different smile and being together with the family. If someone not Jewish or thinking he’s not Jewish is reading this blog, then the lesson for you is simple. Please turn of your phones, gadgets, faxes, emails, iPads, iPhones, iEgo and anything else that block’s you from being really communicative and focused. Now it’s the true day of rest, the whole world centers around this special moment of meeting, with our Husband greeting happily our Wifey and children, Shabbat Shalom (everyone knows shalom means peace), “Good Shabbos and hi, how you all doing?”

Now what happens when Wifey response is not looking so good, in fact she looks exhausted and the children have made havoc. Our Husband breaths deeply smiles and begins singing Shalom Aleichem welcoming in the new Shabbos Angels for the new blessing of the week!

key chalah

However, sometimes our Husband is exhausted too after a rough week of exile and sweating a lot just to make a few loaves. This culminates in real frustration of children driving each other crazy and ignoring any pleas of mercy just to sit nicely and behave with etiquette and manners. Shalom Aleichem song turns into a squeal of “sit down or else” and after a few warnings, the anticipated family together has turned into a war of wills. Our Husband has already had enough after 2 minutes at home and Wifey looks on despondently when she was already dealing with hours of hardship. “Right” screams our Husband, “off to bed you children go” and quickly like a prison guard prods all his catch off to their cell. Our children crying and pleading for mercy our unheeded and the door is closed with our Husband huffing and puffing back to a far from pleased Wifey. “I work hard the whole week” mumbles our Husband, “and we need just a little peace and quiet” not being able to look Wifey in the eyes. Wifey responds not impressed “I work hard the whole week too, and preparing the house, cloths, children and food is no small achievement, and the climax of it all, you won’t even let the children eat with us and have special family time?”

“Why can’t you come home with smiles, songs and get us all into positive family mood”

Our Husband concedes defeat, slumps into the chair and calls out to our children who had already reappeared with plea’s in their eyes. “Shalom Aleichem kinder and Wifey” he jumps up smiling and claps his hand, “let’s get it right this time” Shalom Aleichem with chorus and harmony begins the take two of family time with Husband, happy Wifey.

So this story brings us to the secret of success in relationships and all world history, which hard times break ups, arguments, broken relationships and communication will bring us to a stronger and more honest deeper eternal connection.

chupahWhere do we see this most strongly, other than our Husbands funny antics, Wifey knows the answer. Just look at all of Jewish history and you will see a constant picture of marital strife between us the unfaithful Wifey with our Holy Husband Hashem/ G-d. However, this always brings out a stronger bond and revelation of mercy with longing for re-connection. Our Wifey has to often overlook our Husbands constant mistakes with the view that overall their deep love for each other is what it’s all really about and all these little skirmishes are just what they are, little moments for our Husband to focus himself more. The other day our Husband really lost the plot with a mother-in-law encounter and our Wifey was left crying. We all know the oldest joke around since the beginning of time. The first man got in a lot of trouble as he had no mother-in-law to blame his behavior for. However, our Husband remembered that as his Wifey’s heart was breaking the most important thing to do is apologize from a very sincere place and placate his Wifey before it’s too late.

shabbat shabbosPleading for mercy and forgiveness our Husbands sincerity for connection turns a very bitter situation sweet.

As our Husband is blessed with this take two or second chance approach, or third attempt at marital peace etc.

Our Husband will now in the first place provide this constant sincere attention in positive  circumstances that truly create Husband, happy Wifey with Shalom eternal more, well at least for now a nice family Shabbos/Shabbat meal together!

The Message of Holy women saving our children with Dreidels and Chanah’s 7 sons with The Kaliver Rebbetzin a”h

The Message of the Dreidel and Doobie Dreidel

History travels, seemingly aimlessly. Generations come and go. As a wide circle, history repeats itself. Is there an objective? Is the world aiming toward a goal?

On Chanukah we turn the dreidel. The Nun, Gimel, Heh and Shin engraved on the dreidel come and go as it spins. The dreidel seems to be spinning aimlessly. However, the Bnei Yissaschar points out that Nun, Gimel, Heh and Shin are gematria Mashiach (they both equal 358).

It’s true; world history – as symbolized by the dreidel – seems to be spinning aimlessly. However, there is a center point around which it all turns – the world’s redemption through Mashiach.

CHANA AND HER SEVEN SONS!

“INNER LIGHTS OF CHANUKAH”

by Chana Katz

As we walk down the hillside of Tsfat’s historic Old Cemetery, we approach a mother who is buried along with her seven sons. For some, it may be viewed as one of the greatest stories of martrydom in Jewish history, perhaps even greater than the famous “Akeida” in which our forefather Avraham was all set to sacrifice his only son, Issac.

At least that’s the way Chana felt, because as the cruel gentile king ordered the death of her final and youngest son, she requested permission to give him one last mother’s kiss. Granted this permission, she embraced her son and whispered in his ear instructions to be carried out after

his soul left his body:

“Go to Avraham Avinu,” she said, “and tell him he was told to

offer one son –I’ve offered seven sons.”

It’s no light story to ponder the pain this mother felt as one by one,

her sons refused to bow down as the king demanded, each coming up

with his own verse from the Torah to explain why it was

more important to sacrifice the mortal body rather than harm

the soul’s essential,

eternal connection to its source.

But something here was more powerful than pain.

It was the unfathomable level of happiness this mother felt when

her children,

on their own strength and desire, were willing to give up their very lives in

order to cleave to G-d.

Perhaps that is why, after the last of her seven sons was tortuously killed,

she went to the roof and jumped to her own death, and,

as the story is related in the Gemara, a heavenly voice called out that

she’s an “Eim Simaicha” (a joyful mother).

Still, it’s a hard story to grasp. And in her final resting place —

by Rabbi Yitzchak Ginsburgh

In fact, if one never looked at Chanukah in another vein besides

the miracle of the oil and the brave battle of Judah the Maccabee,

this tape will draw a direct connection

between Chana and Chanu-kah! Ginsburgh goes as far as to say that perhaps

the story of Chana and her sons who refused to bow

to Antiochus is the very basis of this weeklong celebration of one of

the Jewish people’s greatest victories and

why the last day of Chanukah,

known as “Zot Chanukah” uses the feminine word

“Zot.” Each candle, Ginsburgh says, serves as the “ner neshama”

for Chana and her seven sons.

SEVEN TIMES NO, A THOUSAND TIMES NO!

According to the Gemara volume

Gittin“,

the king asked each son to bow down to an idol.

Each son, starting from the oldest to eventually

the youngest, refused, each quoting a different

passage from the Torah.

The first son quoted the first commandment,

“How can I bow down?” he asked, “when

it says in the Torah, “I am the L-rd your G-d.’ ”

The second son stated the commandment:

“You shall have no other gods beside Me.”

Said the third: “How can I? Whoever sacrifices

to a foreign god will be wiped out of the

Jewish people.”

Quoted the fourth son: “You shall not bow

down to other gods.”

The fifth son quoted the “Shma” —

“Hear O Israel, the L-rd G-d, the L-rd is One.”

The sixth son explained: “You shall teach today your heart that Hashem is the only

G-d in the heavens and earth and there is no other.”

Finally, the merciless king turned to the seventh and youngest son who

quoted the longest passage:

“We have sworn to Hashem not to change Him for any other god and

G-d has sworn to us not to exchange us for any other people.”

The king was taken aback. This boy was the youngest, yet the most clever —

and also willing to give his life. Nonetheless, the king tried to deceive him:

“I’ll throw my ring down,” he said, “and so people won’t ridicule me it will

look like you’re bowing down but really you’ll only be picking up the ring.”

No luck, Antiochus. The brave lad said,

“If your honor as a human being of flesh and blood is so important,

than how much more so is the honor of the King!”

CONTINUING TO THE BURIAL SITE

Flashing in time through the years to our generation, bound by cumulative

merit yet set back by incomprehensible capitulations and compromises,

whatever feelings one carries to Chana and

her Seven Sons, they must certainly include awe and admiration.

The most direct approach to Chana is to take HaAri Street as far as one can go, which will take you past the top of Old Cemetery until a flight of steps leading down the side of the mountain to the famous Ari Mikveh and to a path that will go directly to the entrance of Chana’s cave. The other path to Chana is more winding and longer, but it will offer the chance to stop by the resting sites of the Holy Ari (Rabbi Issac Luria), Rav Moshe Cordovera, R. Shlomo Alkabetz and other great Torah figures.

The entrance itself is not very high, perhaps only four-feet at most. In fact, the entire cave ceiling itself is very-low lying. It is quiet and dark inside but the just like the story itself, the illumination burns bright when it is viewed in its spiritual light.

“Chana and her Seven Sons sacrificed their lives on earth to establish and reveal to the eyes of the entire world the essential bond of the Jewish soul to eternal life, unbounded by the limitations of time and space…

to illuminate the darkness of the world around” proclaims

Rav Ginsburgh in his final words on the tape.

Now, it doesn’t really seem so dark in here, does it?

The Kaliver Rebbetzin a”h A dedication to her! Rebbetzin Chana Sara Shifra Taub a”h,

the Kaliver Rebbetzin, wife of the Kaliver Rebbe of Eretz Yisroel. She was 94.

The Rebbetzin passed away 2 years ago at Shaarei Tzedek Medical Center in Yerushalayim.

She was a daughter of Rav Pinchas Shapiro of Kechnia and was a descendant of  Rav Meir Premishlaner.

The Rebbetzin was a true ishah chashuvah, who, with humility, aidelkeit and grace, served as a right hand to her husband in his avodas hakodesh.

The Rebbetzin would encourage her husband to engage in activities that bring estranged Jews closer to their Father in Shomayim, stating that while she didn’t merit to have biological children in this world, “at least we will have children in Olam Haba.”

Her kevurah was on Har Hazeisim. Yehi zichrah boruch.

Teach children the basic pleasures, which are not only readily available to all but are also the only really important pleasures. Happiness is the sum total of many details, and therefore those who learn to rejoice in more details of life will have much more cause for happiness. (Career of Happiness)
