    President Reuven Rivlin on Sunday morning 1 Tammuz held a working meeting with European Union Commissioner for Justice, Consumers, & Gender Equality, Ms Věra Jourová, who was visiting Israel for the first time in her current position. President Rivlin welcomed her and said, “We greatly appreciate all you are doing to combat anti-Semitism, and your work to strengthen the connection between Israel and the EU.” He added, “We are working to find an end to the conflict with the Palestinians. There is a very urgent need to build confidence between the two sides. It must be understood that we must and we can live together.” The President concluded, “The Jewish people has returned to its homeland. Israel is a Jewish, democratic state – with no gap between the two.” The Commissioner said, “I’m honored to meet you, President Rivlin. My visit to Israel is an opportunity to deepen the EU-Israel cooperation in the field of justice. One of my key priorities is the fight against anti-Semitism, which also needs to be fought on new fronts, including on the internet.” The two went on to hold an extensive meeting on ways in which Israel and the EU were expanding their cooperation in the field of justice and equality in society, of the importance of the shared values of democracy, and the need to stand united in the face of the challenges to these core beliefs.

    Syrian Kurdish forces say they have seized a new district from the Islamic State group in its self-declared capital, Raqqa. Cihan Shekh Ehmed, a spokeswoman for the U.S.-backed militia known as the Syrian Democratic Forces, said the group’s fighters seized the western district of al-Qadisiya from IS on Monday. Assisted by airstrikes from the U.S.-led coalition, the SDF has been slowly advancing against IS in Raqqa since launching its offensive in early June after encircling the city. Raqqa is the capital of the extremist group’s self-proclaimed Islamic caliphate, which it declared in 2014 in parts of Syria and neighboring Iraq. IS has suffered a series of setbacks in recent months at the hands of an array of Syrian and Iraqi forces. (AP)

  • (5)Agudath Israel Reacts To Israeli Cabinet Decision To Freeze Kotel Plan

    The Israeli Cabinet’s decision to not upend the status quo of normative, traditional Jewish religious worship at the Kotel Maaravi, or Western Wall, is a prudent and proper one. The Kotel was a place of peace and Jewish devotion for decades after its liberation in 1967. That peace was shattered, and the holy place turned into a place of protest in the guise of prayer, by Women of the Wall and its allies overseas. That has been a tragedy. Every man and woman can, as always, pray privately and with genuine emotion at the site. But maintaining a standard for vocal public prayer is only sensible and proper. That standard, since 1967, has been halacha, codified Jewish religious law. Those determined to “liberalize” Jewish practice are free to do what they wish in their own synagogues. To cause anguish and anger to the thousands of traditional Jews who regularly pray at the Kotel, however, is not what any Jew should ever wish to do. Rather than balkanize the Kotel so that feminist groups today – and, in the future, other groups with their own social agendas – can promote their causes, the Kotel should be preserved as a place of Jewish unity. As it has been for half a century. (YWN Headquarters – NYC)

  • (6)Supreme Court Rules For Missouri Church In Playground Case

    The Supreme Court ruled Monday that churches have the same right as other charitable groups to seek state money for new playground surfaces and other non-religious needs. By a 7-2 vote, the justices sided with Trinity Lutheran Church of Columbia, Missouri, which had sought a grant to put a soft surface on its preschool playground. The church was denied any money even though its application was ranked fifth out of 44 submissions. Chief Justice John Roberts said for the court that the state violated the First Amendment by denying a public benefit to an otherwise eligible recipient solely on account of its religious status. He called it “odious to our Constitution” to exclude the church from the grant program, even though the consequences are only “a few extra scraped knees.” The case arose from an application the church submitted in 2012 to take part in Missouri’s scrap tire grant program, which reimburses the cost of installing a rubberized playground surface made from recycled tires. The money comes from a fee paid by anyone who buys a new tire. The church’s application to resurface the playground for its preschool and daycare ranked fifth out of 44 applicants. But the state’s Department of Natural Resources rejected the application, pointing to the part of the state constitution that says “no money shall ever be taken from the public treasury, directly or indirectly, in aid of any church, sect or denomination of religion.” A recycled scrap tire is not religious, the church said in its Supreme Court brief. “It is wholly secular,” the church said. In dissent, Justice Sonya Sotomayor said the ruling weakens the nation’s longstanding commitment to separation of church and state. “This case is about nothing less than the relationship between religious institutions and the civil government — that is, between church and state,” she said, joined by Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg. “The Court today profoundly changes that relationship by holding, for the first time, that the Constitution requires the government to provide public funds directly to a church.” (AP)

  • (9)Legal Issue Affirms Rights Of Rabbi, Batei Din To Enforce Religious Law

    In a groundbreaking victory upholding the constitutional right to freedom of religion, a New Jersey judge dismissed a slander and defamation lawsuit against a rabbi who told congregants to avoid all contact with a person who was found to be m’sarev b’din by a Beis Din. The plaintiff in the case, which was brought to New Jersey Superior Court in December 2016, had been going through a difficult divorce when he was summoned to a Din Torah. The plaintiff ignored the hazmana, prompting the Beis Din to issue a seruv labeling him as being in contempt of court, but despite the associated sanctions, the plaintiff continued to come to shul as before. Unsure how to interact with a fellow congregant who had been officially classified as m’sarev b’din, members of the shul asked the Rav to clarify the halachically appropriate way to handle the situation. The Rav advised them that, al pi halacha, they were not permitted to speak to the plaintiff, do business with him or associate with him in any way, and having been given a psak by their Rav, the congregants followed his directive. Several years later it was the Rav who found himself summoned to legal proceedings as the husband in the divorce case filed suit against him in secular court, charging him with defamation and slander. According to the plaintiff, the Rav’s instructions to his congregants had caused him tremendous harm, both personally and professionally. Unsure how to proceed, the Rav called the Agudah’s New Jersey office whose legal services division put him in contact with attorney Ronald Coleman, a partner with the firm of Archer & Greiner. Mr. Coleman agreed to represent the Rav pro bono and succeeded in convincing the judge that the Rav’s actions were protected under the constitution’s First Amendment. The case was dismissed, affirming an important rule of law allowing rabbonim to carry out their religious duties without fear of retribution and affirming the right of Beis Din to issue a seruv, with all of its associated consequences, against a recalcitrant husband. “We are gratified the judge did not hesitate to address explicitly the important First Amendment issue raised in the claim against the rabbi,” said Mr. Coleman. “ In reaffirming the rule that secular courts have no jurisdiction over a Rav’s conduct as a congregational leader, the court strengthened the rule of law, of which freedom of religion is a pillar under the Constitution.” Rabbi Avi Schnall, Director, Agudath Israel of America’s New Jersey Region, said, “We are very grateful to attorney Ron Coleman for his willingness to defend the rav in this case. This case does more than affirm a Rav’s first amendment right; it empowers Rabbonim to lead their Kehilas and Batei Din to issue a psak without the fear of being litigated.” (YWN Headquarters – NYC)

  • (10)US Supreme Court partially allows Trump’s travel ban
    June 26, 2017, 6:32 PM (IDT)

    The Supreme Court on Monday lifted most of the injunctions placed on President Donald Trump's controversial travel ban by lower courts, allowing it to take effect. The court will also hear the case onthe ban during this fall's term. The court allowed that the ban "may not be enforced against foreign nationals who have a credible claim of a bona fide relationship with a person or entity in the United States." The court went on to rule: "But when it comes to refugees who lack any such connection to the United States, the balance tips in favor of the government's compelling need to provide for the nation's security.”

    The executive order bars travel tothe US by citizens of six majority Muslim countries: Libya, Iran, Yemen, Syria, Somalia, and Sudan. Green-card holders are exempt from the ban.
