I would like to suggest a boycott of hamodia for their support and active campaigning of a secular candidate in Yerushalayim and a non-Charedi candidate in Bais Shemesh. It is one thing not to vote or endorse a candidate but it is quite another thing to actively campaign for a candidate who anti-Torah idealsNovember 13, 2008 6:54 am at 6:54 am #624857
I suggest we all buy 2 copies of the paper, to show our support for their following Daas Torah.November 13, 2008 7:13 am at 7:13 am #624858PMMember
Rumor has it that non-Ger Aguda is starting a newspaper to compete with Hemodia and will be coming out very soon. Keep your eyes out for it.November 13, 2008 1:25 pm at 1:25 pm #624859newcomerMember
You make a good point. The only way to make a strong statement would be to “hit them where it counts” -in the pocket.November 13, 2008 1:52 pm at 1:52 pm #624860
I suggest the Chareidim continue to snipe and one another and thereby remain permanent non-entities in the political arena.November 13, 2008 2:32 pm at 2:32 pm #624861

We also pray for seichel and bina, which are also in short supply.November 13, 2008 6:44 pm at 6:44 pm #624868jewishfeminist02Member
So all non-Charedim have “anti-Torah ideals”, then?November 13, 2008 7:00 pm at 7:00 pm #624869sammygolMember
Let’s also boycott Der Yid for espousing Satmar ideology, since it opposes the Agudah, Yated Ne’eman, which reports on Israel and thus opposes Satmar, Kfar Chabad, as it is at odds with almost everyone, The Jewish Press, which represents nobody, The Mishpacha with all its gashmius advertisements, Binah, which doesn’t really address men’s issues, The Jewish Observer, which never printed even one sicha of the Rebbe, the YW, since they also censor posts, and that constitutes an opinion. I am sure I missed some extremely important Jewish “orthodox” publications, so, please fell free to add those of your personal dislike.
Meanwhile, we can continue reading the Pravda, Der Stuermer, and Al Quds, since they do not take any sides among the Charedi public, and really do not care about these elections. Wait, Al Quds is following the Neturei Karta line, so, forget that one too.February 21, 2020 3:13 pm at 3:13 pm #1834203GadolhadorahParticipant
They also have endorsed Trump so that is another reason to boycott Hamodia.February 21, 2020 3:37 pm at 3:37 pm #1834246studentParticipant

Yidden have ZERO obligation to purchase a product or service they no longer want or need simply to sustain employment for others. If a news media outlet peddles fake or disrespectful news (from the perspective of a particular individual) the reader has no obligation to bring that media into his/her house so sustain employment for reporters, editors or supporting staff of that media outlet. In the Alte Heim, yidden weren’t under an obligation to continue buying carts and buggy whips once they could purchase an Odyssey or call Uber. Likewise, if Hamodia runs an ad for the Bernie Bros or the Maggaites, their readers can decide whether to continue the subscription but use it to wrap fish or simply transfer their subscription to the print version of the Forward.
