Religious singing contestant heads for finals

Nice to see that Ophir Ben-Shetreet has headed for the finals in The Voice's singing contest despite the manufactured controversy by so-called religious parents who seem to see nothing wrong with trying to interfere in the personal life of a stranger, think the school should be responsible for stuff like this when if it's really a bother for them, they should teach their own children why they don't think it's a good example, and most importantly of all, have betrayed the memory of the biblical Miriam.

There are other competitors, of course:
The others finalists are: Rudy Bainasin, a 22-year-old military officer who made aliyah to Israel from Ethiopia as an infant; Lina Makhoul, a 19-year-old Christian Arab who works in retail and volunteers with the Magen David Adom, and Dana Tzalach, a 22-year-old professional makeup artist who speaks openly about her struggles with her weight.

[...] Menuchin’s money is on Ben-Shetreet to win on Saturday. Whether or not she comes out on top, she’s already a winner to many viewers for successfully navigating a course on which she stays true to her religious values while following her artistic dreams.
And the parents of other girls at her ulpana would do well to keep quiet this time and not violate another of the beliefs featured in the Torah/Bible that was mentioned earlier. In fact, if the so-called religious prohibition is supposed to be on men listening to women singing, why were any of these men watching the show a few months ago? What a bunch of phonies. I think they have a problem with a woman wanting to make it big no matter how much she tries to remain true to her religious beliefs. If anything, they're desecrating the religion I thought they wanted everybody to see as a positive example. Attacking a woman just for engaging in a form of singing that has nothing to do with synagogue prayer service is not a good way to publicize the faith.
