Is calling it a rally a way around the ban?"One commentor claims to know that that is the case. If he's right it's just sad. Semantical Judaism, not just a slogan; its a way of life!
Meanwhile, Life-of-Rubin posts about Yerachmiel Begun's Chol Hamoed concert announcement.
Why is a mixed seating event with the Miami Boys Choir, Avraham Fried, Baruch Levine and Michoel Prusansky any less wrong, any less evil then a SEPARATE seating Lipa/Gertner concert. Because one is in MSG and the other Brooklyn College??This is playing out exactly as expected. It amplifies the wrong done through the "Big Event" ban. News Flash: This isn't going to go away. The Chareidi leadership should address the topic honestly.
