New! on JPost.com: The Hot Potato This is your chance to voice your opinion. We've chosen a controversial / interesting entry that appeared on our site (talkback, blog, etc…) and we want to know what you have to say about it. TODAY'S HOT POTATO: Taken from article: Praying, yes - begging, no Talkback #: 10 Talkbacker: em zar Text: I was at the kotel a few weeks ago, and one woman had PILES of chairs - public property - monopolized. The only way you could get one was to pay HER for it. This is not tzedaka, it is theft. I've also been swarmed by beggars who don't let you pray, practically don't let you breathe - after giving tzedaka to one. To the writer who said the "old ladies" aren't a problem: They certainly are, at least in the women's Section. I hope Jerusalem enforces this ban. Tzedaka is a mitzvah. Harassing people is not. What do you think? The ball is in your court now. Click here to respond Previous Hot Potatos
