Two good pieces in Ha'aretz

Two excellent pieces in Ha'aretz today.

The first is by Yoel Marcus, my favorite Israeli columnist and one of the best political writers around. It analyzes the new blood in Israel's Labor Party. The second is by Jacob Lupu, discussing the recent High Court decision in Israel to suspend government funding of Haredi yeshivot who fail to offer secular studies to their students, and provides a long history of the often acrimonious debate over whether such studies should be offered.

What's your own opinion on the subject of funding to Haredi yeshivas? I agree completely. Detachment from reality is dangerous and can lead to fanaticism.
