Church & State

Three items from abroad, more or less.  Bartholomew is disturbed by some anti-Semitism brewing in Russia, and an American-born Ukranian has some ugly things to say about Jewish fundraising and Ukraine.

In Israel, the army is ending the hesdar program, which allows Orthodox Jews to continue religious studies while serving.  It's interesting to see that Sharon's government is stepping back from its affiliation with conservative religious groups.  Could this be payback for Shas' walkout a few months ago?
