The Matzav

   by Reb Gutman Locks​

The Matzav

     Matzav literally means the "situation." Israelis often ask, "What's the matzav?" (What's happening?) But now its common usage usually refers to the Jewish Arab conflict. Due to the matzav this young Israeli who is davening from a vantage point overlooking the Kotel not only wears his spiritual garments, his tallis and tefillin, he has to carry an automatic weapon, too. When the Arabs leave or decide to follow the Law, we might put aside our automatic weapons, but we will still be putting on our tallis and tefillin
