Several supermarket customers reported that a Nazi slogan was printed on their receipts, which they received from the Coop supermarket of Sweden.

Now, the supermarket director apologized after the message "Do not come back! Sieg Heil" was found on at least two receipts.

The director confirmed that the message was found on two receipts from a location in Stockholm, and the words were added to the system manually by an employee.

"This is completely unacceptable and we are very disappointed," the director said.

A woman, who identified herself as Kerstin, said that she was surprised to find the phrase on her receipt after a recent shopping trip.

"Sieg heil" was a popular Nazi salute during World War Two.

(Scroll down for video) 125 parents of Lone Soldiers will spend the upcoming Jewish holidays with their children thanks to free trips sponsored in part by El Al Israel Airlines, the Tazpit News Agency reported.

In a special initiative to enable families to spend the Jewish New Year together, 21 airplanes are flying into Israel from 10 different international locations.

Flights are taking off from New York, Los Angeles, Toronto, St. Petersburg, Kiev, Moscow, Paris, London, Brussels, and Amsterdam.

On Thursday, a flight from Moscow with the first group of parents landed in Israel.

El Al Israel Airlines, the Israel Hotel Association (IHA), the Association for the Wellbeing of Israel's Soldiers (AWIS), and the IDF's Manpower Directorate are all part of the unique project to reunite parents with their sons and daughters who took part in the recent Operation Protective Edge against Hamas.

An event of this scope has never taken place before as 125 parents to 77 soldiers will arrive in Israel in the upcoming few days.

"We initiated this project in order to show our appreciation to the Lone Soldiers, who bravely decided to leave their home country and protect Israel," said David Maimon, Chief Executive Officer of El Al Israel Airlines, which provided the parents of Lone Soldiers with the free flights.

At Ben Gurion Airport on Thursday, the Lone Soldiers waited eagerly for their parents, who are also receiving free accommodation for a five-night stay in hotels that are part of the Israel Hotel Association (IHA).

One mother of a Lone Soldier, Dovrat Ifis, commented that the most meaningful part of the trip was to spend the Jewish New Year with her son.

“The best part is that we get to celebrate Rosh Hashanah together. I can’t put into words how happy I am right now. My heart is pounding with excitement,” she stated.

Ifis is also very grateful for the generous initiative. “The time is just right and our soldiers truly deserve it - the time has come to hug them and spend quality family time with them.”

Eli Gonen, President of the Israel Hotel Association, noted that his organization has been helping Lone Soldiers for many years, offering accommodation especially during the Jewish holidays, including Rosh Hashanah and Passover.

“We are supporting the army and soldiers throughout the year,” Gonen stated. “We are opening our hotels and our hearts to the Lone Soldiers and their families, providing them with a feeling of home and comfort during the holidays.”

The Chairman of the Association of the Well-being of Israel’s Soldiers (AWIS), Avigdor Kahalani, also added that Lone Soldiers will always be supported. "The Lone Soldiers are not alone – AWIS, El Al, the Israel Hotel Association and the IDF's Manpower Directorate are there to embrace them after Operation Protective Edge, and just before the New Year, we managed to bring them their loved ones from home.”

(Scroll down for video) The world’s oldest prayer book that was probably written in Israel, finally returned home after 1,200 years, the Tazpit News Agency reported.

It was a historical moment at Jerusalem’s Bible Lands Museum on Thursday night, as the world’s oldest known Jewish prayer book, also known as siddur, was displayed for the first time to the general public with leading Jewish and Christian figures present.

The siddur, which is 1,200 years old, belongs to Steve Green of Oklahoma, who owns the largest private collection of biblical artifacts in the world, with over 44,000 rare texts and biblically-related objects.

This prayer book will be displayed for one month in the Book of Books exhibit, the internationally-acclaimed exhibition which displays the most important biblical texts and traces the history of the Bible and the dissemination of the monotheistic faith.

On display are original fragments from the Septuagint, the earliest New Testament Scriptures, exquisite illuminated manuscripts, rare fragments from the Cairo Geniza and original pages from the Gutenberg Bible.

“We are honored to have the prayer book in our Book of Books exhibition. The book is evidence of a thriving and creative community and cultural life 1,200 years ago,” said Amanda Weiss, the Director of the Bible Lands Museum. “We want to give the world the opportunity to see this remarkable piece of document.”

The 50-page ancient prayer book, still with its original binding and cover, is written in Hebrew and contains three main parts; the morning service, liturgical poems and the Haggadah read at the Passover Seder.

It dates back to the first half of the Ninth Century AD during the period of the Babylonian Geonim, the spiritual leaders of the Jewish community in the early medieval era.

It was during this period that Amram Gaon, one of the leading Geonim, wrote an orderly liturgy for the first time to be used for both the synagogue and home. The siddur originates from the Middle East and has undergone sophisticated carbon dating methods to validate its age.

“Scholars have yet to fully research the prayer book,” added Weiss, noting that there are experts around the world studying high-quality digitized versions of the siddur.

Green purchased the siddur over a year and a half ago for his Oklahoma-based collection, but the prayer book will eventually be permanently hosted at the Museum of the Bible, which is currently under construction in Washington D.C.

Before the prayer book was purchased by Green, it was originally in the hands of a private family for many generations according to Weiss.

“I know that the Jewish people have a great appreciation for this prayer book,” Green told the Tazpit News Agency. “It’s been through many travels and I’m glad that it has made its way here to Jerusalem,” he added.

Green, who is Chairman of the Museum of the Bible, stated that he grew up in a ‘Bible-loving family’ of Christian ministers and wants to cultivate appreciation for the Bible worldwide.

Among those present at the unveiling of the prayer book at the Bible Lands Museum on Thursday night, were Speaker of the Knesset, MK Yuli Edelstein and Father Gabriel Nadaf, a Nazareth-based Greek Orthodox priest, who has worked to foster closer ties between Jewish and Christian communities in Israel.

“I’m proud to be here this evening, because together we are witnessing our shared history and faith, and experiencing history anew from eyes that appreciate the past,” Nadaf told the Tazpit News Agency. “It’s a very moving moment and it comes from the heart, to see where we originally come from.”

"Not only are we the 'People of the Book', we are the people of the same book, the same language and the same prayers," said Speaker Edelstein. "These are the exact same words millions of Jews say every morning and this is the best example of Jewish continuity."

(Scroll down for video) A mother said that she had to take away a talking Barbie doll from her daughter after it yelled “what the f***.”

25-year-old Talina Evans of the United Kingdom, said that at first, she couldn’t make out the words that the Barbie doll was repeating to her daughter, but then she realized that it was taking dirty.

The foul-mouthed doll, which has several voice-activated buttons on its body, seems to scream something that sounds like what the f***.

Evans of North Wales, said that she immediately took the toy away from her 7-year-old daughter Demileigh, and demanded an explanation from the local Home bargains store, where she bought the doll.

“I told my daughter that the doll had been bad and was swearing, so she had to go. She was disappointed, but understands that it is wrong to swear," Evans said.

The store refused to take the doll back because the mother did not have the receipt. A Mattel spokesperson said that an investigation was launched.

However, most people who listened to the talking doll, said that they heard it say “off the hook.” According to a video uploaded to the Internet by Mattel, the doll can be heard saying “off the hook.”

A video of the talking Barbie doll was uploaded to the Internet, and it has since gone viral.

A woman was fired from her job after she had sex with a patient, who was in her care at a hospital.

33-year-old Rachel Shaper of Illinois is accused of sexually abusing the 60-year-old man by forcing him to have sex with her as he laid in his hospital bed waiting for a heart transplant.

Now, John Cantone and his wife Laura, are suing the hospital for more $200,000. According to the Cook County Circuit Court complaint, Cantone said that Shaper entered his room at the Advocate Christ Medical Center and initiated unsolicited sexual relations including intercourse.

Cantone was in the care of the nurse in the cardiac intensive care unit of the hospital while awaiting a heart transplant at the time of the alleged abuse.

According to reports, Cantone was medicated with '”various drugs and was under electronic monitoring” at the time of the incident.

The complaint states that as a result, officials at the hospital knew that Shaper had a tendency to engage in unauthorized activities with patients in her care, but did not supervise her more closely or terminate her employment.

Illinois state records show that Shaper was ultimately fired from the hospital for “crossing professional boundaries with a patient.”

(Scroll down for video) A mother of New York, was arrested after being accused of killing her 8-year-old son.

The pharmaceutical executive allegedly pumped a deadly dose of 11 drugs into his system, an expert testified in court.

The child, Jude Mirra, who is autistic, was found dead next to 54-year-old Gigi Jordan.

The overdose of drugs was found in the child’s system when his body was examined by a pathologist the day after he died at a $2,300-per-night room in the Peninsula Hotel of Manhattan.

Dr. Edward Barbieri, a toxicologist, testified in the Manhattan Supreme Court, that the boy’s body would have shut down within “minutes or hours” of being force fed the drugs.

Jordan allegedly crushed many pills and mixed them into orange juice and vodka, before feeding it to her son through his mouth with a syringe.

Mirra's blood had more than 20 times the “therapeutic” amount of Clonidine, a blood pressure and ADD drug, and 15 times the amount of Ambien that would have been used for legitimate reasons.
Benadryl, Prozac and Celebrex were also found in his system. Defense attorney Allan Brenner said that the mother believed she was relieving her son from his misery, and killed him out of love and devotion.

She believes that she brought him the peace, which she couldn’t bring him during his life.

The girl then went on to throw objects and ripped things off the classroom walls before police were called to the school.

The girl’s parents, Earnest Johnson and Candace Ruff, said that the school should have found an alternative solution rather than involving the police.

Police said that an officer tried to calm the child down, but when she resisted, she was handcuffed and taken to the police station.

In addition to her trip to the police station, Salecia was suspended from school for a few weeks.

Man found not guilty of rape because he suffers from disorder that causes him to unknowingly have sex while asleep

Sleepwalking illustration

A man was found not guilty of rape despite the fact that he raped a woman, according to a court ruling in Sweden.

A doctor told the court that the defendant suffers from “sexsomnia,” which is a disorder that causes people to unknowingly have sex while they are asleep.

“The 26-year-old had no intention of having sex,” the Appeals Court in Sundsvall ruled. The court overturned his two-year prison sentence he had received in a lower court.

“The defendant was in a state of sleepiness, and was unaware of what was happening," the court said in its ruling.

A specialist in sleep disorders told the court that the accused could have suffered from sexsomnia, a state in which a person can have sex while asleep.

The theory was supported by the former partner of the man. Sexsomnia is a condition closely related to sleepwalking. Those affected by sexsomnia are not aware of their actions, specialists say.
