I Voted.

#ReformJews4Israel

 

Through April 30th 2015, the World Zionist Organization is holding open voting for all jews to help shape its agenda, including issues affecting both Diaspora Jews and the state of affairs in Israel. The World Zionist Congress is the highest legislative body of the World Zionist Organization, which provides a forum for all the world’s Jews to come together and deliberate about critical issues.

Every Jew has the opportunity to vote for the platform that most aligns with their personal views, and I voted for ARZA.

A vote for ARZA is a vote for:

– Women’s Rights & Gender Equality

-Religious Equality

-Regional Security

My take on the ‘Religious Freedom’ law in Indiana

I’m gonna use a bakery owner as an example:

Refusing to bake a damn cake for someone due to their sexual orientation is stupid… Aren’t you a businessperson? Don’t you want to make a damn profit?  You don’t agree with homosexuality?  Well, that is your own thought and you are entitled to it, but keep it to yourself.  You’re a twice divorced baker? If that is the case, on the same accord you should be refusing service to yourself… What do you think about that? Bake the damn cake… It doesn’t affect you in any negative way. You may be a bigot, but you’re making money.

Auto Awesome Western Wall

Funny that when I was in Israel last year, Google’s ‘Auto Awesome’ feature would do weird things like put snow flakes onto pictures of the Tel Aviv beach, but now a year later is actually pulling the pics I took and making them ACTUALLY AWESOME.  Check out this black and white treatment it gave a pic I took of the Western Wall last February.
