The rules of Israeli society have to be applied evenly and fairly to
all.  Whatcha think about the Purple People?

Rav Herzl Hefter, the Rosh Yeshiva of Aspaklaria in the Old City of
Jerusalem, is a graduate  of Yeshiva University where he learned under
the tutelage of Rav Yerucham Gorelikזצ"ל and Rav Yosef Dov Soloveichik
זצ''ל and received smicha at Yeshivat Har Etzion where he studied
under Rav Aharon Lichtenstein for ten years.  Rav Hefter has taught
the Kollel fellows at Yeshivat Hamivtar, Yeshiva University’s Gruss
Kollel and he served as the head of the prestigious Bruria Scholars
Program at Midreshet Lindenbaum. He also taught at Yeshivat Mekor
Chaim in Moscow and served as Rosh Kollel of the Torah M’Zion Kollel
in Cleveland, Ohio. Rav Hefter combines a passion for Lithuanian style
Talmudic analysis with the study of Hassidut. Recently Rav Hefter
published an article in Tradition comparing the thoughts of Rav
Mordechai Yosef of Ishbitz (the Mei HaShiloah) on idolatry with
certain aspects of Hindu iconography.

His hour long Torah lesson on Sukkot is the rest of 'Judean Eve' for
this week.  Chag sameach!
