You Are Cordially Invited:


Israel Zionist Theatrical Show:

Master of Ceremonies: Religious Affairs Minister Matan Kahana

Setting:  Theatres and Synagogues

Seating:  50 Seats, Rows 1 thru 26

Time:  Jewish High Holidays - Rosh Hashana, Yom Kippur 

Act One:   Religious Affairs instruction to Religious Affairs Ministry Director General Shimon Ma'atouk was to formulate a plan for synagogues which would incorporate the principle of "a single law for places of entertainment and synagogues.”

ActTwo: "If in the theater you can have 50 people, that will be allowed in synagogues as well," a Ministry official told Israel Hayom.

Doorman:  Haim, the sexton of a Petah Tikva synagogue, expressed relief at Kahana's instruction, telling Israel Hayom: "There's no reason we shouldn't receive such a plan, and it's not clear why there wasn't one earlier. The calendar is very clear, and the holidays are closer than we think. I am happy that finally, finally, we will be able to know how to conduct ourselves on Rosh Hashanah (the Jewish New Year) and Yom Kippur (the Day of Atonement).”

Not quite sure what this means. Not clear at all.
The mentality of those who 'control' is very strange.
Maybe you can clarify!

Oh, Moshe :-)
This is what they are planning for the Jewish High Holy Days. They are equating Synagogues with their Cultural establishments, and allowing the same number of entrants for both. This is my sense of humor at their planning life regulations for the religious. I am entertained by their machinations, so I created an “invitation” to a play, which is what they actually think of us.

OMG, finally! Now that we have directive from the ministry of the absurd we'll "know how to conduct ourselves on Rosh HaShana. Silly me. I thought we got those instructions from the Torah.
