I wonder how many people agree that all stores in Israel should be closed on Shabbat, but believe the New Jersey blue laws should be repealed?

Torvald

How about keeping the storefront closed but allowing online purchases with same day delivery.

Corrections to my post above:

" should be :
Joint should be join.
affirs should be affairs.
hones should be honest.

(Time for a new keyboard....)

This should not be permitted in a Jewish state!

I am sure more Jews would observe Shabbat if more (or any) of the frumma agreed to"

o Joint the military.
o Educate their children.
o Work for a living.
o Conduct their affirs in an hones and dignified manner.
o Provide an example for others to emulate.

Until they are prepared to do those things, Shabbat violation of this kind is a relatively minor transgression compared to the daily averot of the frumma.

Yom Shabbat in Home Depot
I think, it was the tenth of Nisan
Yom Shabbat in Home Depot
I think, it was the tenth of Nisan

People marching, people stoning
A man buying hardware
Singing Yiddish songs

Can you shop then? Yes, I can
And I've been waiting such a long time
For Shabbat stores

Another Shabbat in Home Depot
I think, it was the first of Tammuz
Another Shabbat in Home Depot
I think, it was the first of Tammuz


People bitching, really angry
A man quoting Talmud
And praying for us all
Will you help him change the world

Can you dig it? Yes, I can
And I've been waiting such a long time
For today

Slow motion buyers, walk because it's still Shabbat
A Hasid man still can say we are all Godless
Listen children, Shabbat is not lost
All is not lost, oh no, no

Funny days in Home Depot
And we are shopping on Shabbat
Funny days in Home Depot
And we are shopping on Shabbat

People screaming, people grabbing
A real Hasid protest
Blaming seculars
If we want to shop on Shabbat
Can we do it? Yes we can
And we've been waiting such a long time
For the day

Barry

Protest is fine. Back it up with a boycott and they will listen.
