Question No. 3

Date Posted Mid 2002
The Question Dear Rabbi, Please could you explain to me the reason that since the Jewish people have returned to their land you:- 1. Allow the mosque to be on your holiest site, the Temple mount and not build your Temple? 2. Don't handle your security problems once and for all not fearing the world response and putting their faith in Gods salvation. Especially since Israel has a very strong army? 3. Why do religious, even ultra-orthodox Jews stay in exile? what, don't they see the hand of God in this past centuries events? One answer I was given was that you are waiting for the Messiah to come, then you will do all of this. I find it hard to believe, that you cannot behave as Gods people until he comes. If this is true, please tell me where it says so in the Bible. I'm sorry if I am being rude, but I can't understand that since so many of your people are being killed daily why is there no outcry, where are your spiritual leaders? why are they not shaking heaven and earth when so much blood is being spilt? Don't you realize that by your silence you are causing a great shame on your God? If you act as you are, how do you expect to convince the world that you are the chosen people? A Jewish friend of mine told me that the ultra-Orthodox world is still behaving the same way it always has, except now they say more Psalms than usual. What about "thou shall not stand idly by thy brothers blood"? Is this really what God wants? Many things are happening now in the world, please give me some clarity/guidance, for you do claim to be God's chosen people. Thank you, Julie Wilcox, England

Date Posted Mid 2002
The Question We have fruit trees that were planted during the year 1999 (after Tu B'Shvat and before Pesach). When are the fruits non-Orla? I thought that the year for trees and their fruit is counted according to Rosh HaShana, but my husband thinks that for fruit it might be counted from Tu B'Shvat. Yocheved Desnick, Ramat Beit Shemesh
