Wow!

(Isn't a ST like 1/3 of the cost of a year's salary?)

Depends which ST (don't forget all the extras and ceremony that go along, and the shipping cost  ;D) and depends where the salary is paid. I am sure there are STs where the all-in cost is more than double the annual salary of a melamed. For my parents I am doing it where they lived. I think that's about 2/3 of what it would be here. I also think there's a benefit in signaling what I believe to be right priorities to my own kids.

There are fewer Israelis becoming sofrim

There was a big מס הכנסה crackdown on them a few years back.

I guess that depends where you teach. A Sefer Torah can easily cost $50k these days. A small one can cost double.

Yes, but not being familiar with Israel or Ivrit left me with a few options in translating מס הכנסה :)  I think I got it now.

"We have no competing fighting chance against China in 15 to 20 years. Right now, it's already a done deal; it is already over in my opinion," Chaillan told the newspaper. "Whether it takes a war or not is kind of anecdotal."

In regards to the readiness level of government agencies when it comes to cyber security and defense, Chaillan said that some departments were operating at a "kindergarten level."

If it's not free shipping it's not worth it.
