Yeshivaworld in the NEWS!

ROL: Unorthodox biography Talk feels compelled to give a tip of the, um, black hat to the Yeshiva World blog, which can be found at This nameless blogger has got a lot of chutzpah, opening a warts-and-all window onto the world of the orthodox Hasidim who live in the Orange County community of Kiryas Joel, as well as Brooklyn, Rockland County and Israel. During last month's funeral services for Grand Rebbe Moses Teitelbaum, Yeshiva World provided a translation of the words that prompted a fist fight between members of two KJ factions in the village's main synagogue: A member of one faction was urging his followers to "break their bones!" That's not all. Last week, Yeshiva World linked to a Jewish wire-service report citing a 35 percent surge in the amount of beer-drinking among the ultra-orthodox Jews in Israel.
