RELATED STORIES FROM CHANUKAH The “Missing Yom Tov” of Chanukah Dreidels and Daily Miracles Inside Chanukah Chanukah 5773 – Esther Wein COMMENTS Stephen Steiner Come on, Yishai, relax. Does the fact that Orthodox community leaders in Los Angeles enjoy going to baseball games and would like to eat kosher hot dogs at the game mean there is no time for building Israel? Having some enjoyment in life is not nonsense. Baseball is enjoyment and so is eating at a game. These community leaders are not calling for eating the hot dogs at the ball game on Tisha B’Av. They will be mourning too. Glatt kosher food is now sold in Yankee Stadium and Citi Field in New York; in Camden Yards in Baltimore; in the new Miami Stadium; and elsewhere. This is not a weakness in the Jewish people — it is a strength. (By the way, they also daven mincha during day games at the food stands.) Chill. Stephen Steiner Yaakov L. I agree with these comments. Maybe these same people do support Jewish causes like the State of Israel, also. We don’t know. Another point is that maybe with these efforts more Jewish people in LA will eat Kosher hot dogs rather than non-kosher ones. Additionally, does the author himself never spend any leisure time (as I think we all do) doing things that may not directly contribute to “building the 3rd temple”? Oleh Yishai, unfortunately, we do NOT have a unified Yerushalayim. When a Jew cannot safely walk in ALL parts of our ‘unified’ city, or anywhere else in the entirety of the Land of Israel, we have a lot of work to do. Not to mention being allowed to pray on Har HaBayit in peace. We have a lot to be thankful for, but let’s not delude ourselves. The main problem with the the ‘hot dog war’ is not why aren’t there kosher hot dogs in a baseball stadium in Chu”L, the problem is that these Jews haven’t woken up and come home. They could build a Glatt kosher baseball stadium here in Israel and then not have to worry about their precious hot dogs. Packy Frye I don’t understand. You act like working to get Kosher hot dogs at a stadium is some kind of vice. Shouldn’t we be applauding the efforts? I know we have bigger things to worry about, but you can worry about more than one thing at the same time.
