Community itself should resolve Kol Isha
The question of women singing at Yom Hashoah or Holocaust Commemoration Day is one that has caused a great deal of heartache within our community. Unfortunately, the debate has been characterised by much emotion but little understanding of the facts and issues involved.

Community has much more to worry about than kol isha
The kol isha singing issue is unbelievably small and petty and the height of hypocrisy and intolerance by the Orthodox; the Orthodox don't own the Holocaust. All kinds of Jews died, including women and children - including girls.

The Equality Court action being brought against the Cape Board of Deputies by two Cape Orthodox Jews and subsequently joined by an interfaith Progressive-affiliated group, SACRED, has not had an impact on today’s Yom Hashoah proceedings at the at Pinelands Cemetery in the city.

Sifrin on a mission - the bearer of enlightenment
It seems to me that Geoff Sifrin, whose articles I sometimes enjoy is on a mission to ridicule the Orthodox community by referring to its growth as being the result of its adherence to narrow dogma.

As things stand, it seems that if neither side backs down, religious rights vs constitutional rights are set to be tested for the first time.
