I am exploring the topic of Zionism. I understand that most ultra-Orthodox great Rabbis were against Zionism and the State of Israel. Were/Are there any ultra-Orthodox great rabbis who supported it?
So we all ready know that when the Meshiach comes all Jews will go to Israel. When that happens will all Jews permanently stay in Israel and never leave? Or will Jews leave Israel temporarily for business and pleasure?
A shule I attend on Shabbos, sometimes, just instituted a guard (non jew) who uses an electronic wand. Is this mutar? Can I "be wanded" on Shabbos? What about my wife (both for Shabbos purposes and tzniut)?
Is there a list of Religious Yishuvim in Israel, and an explanation of their Torah emphasis?
A Religious family seeks to live in a Yishuv that has open spaces nearby. They need an elementary school that has strong Torah values.
They don't know which Yishuvim to visit because they are not familiar with the Religious flavors of the various Yishuvim.
We have already been in contact with Nefesh B'nefesh, and continue to have this question.
