Religious group launches weekly newspaper in Israel

A new weekly newspaper called Shofar News has launched in Israel. According to the article by Viva Sarah Press at the Jerusalem Post, the paper was started by "a group of Rabbi Amnon Itzhak's followers" and its goal is to offer the general public "a source of news without gossip, sleaziness, or lashon hara" says Haim Kfir, its editor-in-chief. At the moment, Shofar News is free but will soon have a charge, it is said to have "a jewish angle." Take a look at the website (but bear in mind it is in Hebrew)
