  1. The YU “challenges” approach is a good one, I’d suggest that they consider including some “average Yossi’s” in the workplace. High achievers often have different situations from the rank and file when it comes to workplace accomodations.

  2. Interesting that the Maharat Yeshiva now seems to be ordaining three times the number of men YCT does. This is of course a pattern in all liberal religious groups, but it has certainly happened quickly and overwhelmingly here.

    (Of course, it’s still only 6:2 and less overall, and of course men have a whole bunch of other options.)

    The repeated mention of how Cubans need medical supplies is kind of ironic considering that we’re told over and over again by liberals how Cuba has a great healthcare system. I did scan the article to see if there was any mention of the fact that Cuba is a police state, essentially a giant gulag, and the tourist trade is pretty much a Potemkin village, but no such luck.
