Worth a Read 18.5.2011

  • Rav Elyashiv has a psak out, defending a Haredi man screaming at a woman on a bus. I was thinking about posting about it, but the whole story sounded a little fishy. Furthermore I just couldn't quite make out my thoughts on the matter. Emes vs Emunah reports the story, but then argues (unconvincingly) that Rav Elyashiv could never have paskened this way. (see also Josh Waxman following a similar line). 
  • New study out (Hebrew): Toward Democratization in the Haredi Leadership? The Doctrine of Da′at Torah at the Turn of the Twentieth and Twenty-First Centuries by Dr. Benjamin Brown/ 
  • Benjamin Brown
  • Strategy posts on the Israeli Cyber Warfare. 
  • Wired Magazine on  the physics of Angry Birds. 
  • Was that Barak Obama talking about the Maccabeats
