I really just want to post this article from the New York Times – or, as Beth keeps telling me. The Times – because the picture is so great. It just looks like a still from a very funny part of a Woody Allen movie.
It is a richer and more complicated article than I am going to summarize but, basically, the European Orthodox Jews – boy, I hate using Jew or Jews: I was brought up to use Jewish because Jew was derogatory – don't want their daughters going to school with the daughters of Arab and North African Orthodox Jews. The Israeli Supreme Court ruled that that was racism and this is a protest against that ruling.
