Mazal Tov to MK Tzipi Hotovely

I remember an interview with MK Tzipi Hotovely and her mother right after she was elected to be a Knesset Member the first time.  Her mother said something like:
"It may be an honor that she was elected MK, but I prefer that she would get married."

Well, the day has finally arrived. She can now change her "family status" to "married."

Before the wedding she ascended the Temple Mount in a personal, spiritual quest.

“Going up to the Temple Mount is important to me, as I am getting married,” Hotovely explained. “Establishing a home and a family unit is not just a private event, but has a public and national dimension of rebuilding from the ruins of Jerusalem.”

In addition, Hotovely pointed out that the Temple Mount is the holiest place for the Jewish people, and called for every Jew to have free access to the site.

All the best wishes to Hotovely and family.

I think we all hoped and prayed for Tzipi to get married, secretly fearing that she might be too high-powered for the right guy. May they have a beautiful Jewish home (sorry, Likud) and serve our people faithfully for many years to come.

goyish, there's a difference between a Jewish home and the Jewish Home. L'havdil, it's like the difference between a Liberal and liberal, because Liberals aren't liberal; they are close-minded reactionaries.

Classical liberalism is close to what we call today libertarianism, as opposed to the socialism of the New Deal and onward which apppropriated that term in America in order not to be called socialist, which has a bad name in America.

yes, maybe. But the Leftists aren't liberal.
