    a crazy story of Nebech how desperate some people are. Despite Natanyahu boosting how strong the Israeli economy is.

    Nebach!!! The terrible perils of poverty take their toll on body and soul.

  3. abelah says:

    These things happen all the time all over the world, including the USA, and worse. Yeshiva World should not be publicizing such stories about Eretz Yisrael, making it seem like Israel is the only place that such things happen.

  4. computerbubby says:

    It’s nice to see the compassion 1 & 2 have for the shoplifters AKA thieves. Where is the compassion for the baby?

  5. jlemmom says:

    Oy! THe headline is misleading. Smother means to kill by covering, lo al af echad. Please write almost smothered. I had to read until the end of the article to know the baby was OK.

    Abelah: YWN did not imply any such thing. That was YOUR inference. Yes, it happens everywhere, sadly, but this time it was caught on camera.

  7. be happy says:

    My opinion we need to start giving more tzduka for Israeli ppl they shouldn’t have to come to such situations

    An English language website should have a journalist that knows the English language.

  10. mobico says:

    The author has made no error. While one valid definition of “smother” is to deprive of oxygen (while not necessarily implying death), another is to conceal or hide, or completely envelope.

    To all those Saying this was due to poverty.. if that’s the case you steal bread and milk, not ice cream
