Don’t miss this opportunity to explore Israel off the beaten track, feel the conflict first hand, understand the security issues and politic realities, and have an unforgettable trip!
In 2004 David Twersky, the Rabbi of ‘Skver,’ and a few hundred of his serfs came to the 5 Towns area for a shabbos. I was interested in seeing him for familial reasons. An ancestor of mine (d. NYC, 1928) from the southern Ukraine published a book in NYC in 1926 which contained a lot of stories and homilies he heard from members of the primary Rabbinic family in the Ukraine, the Twersky family. This author was the rabbi of, what I imagine to have been, a town of thatched roof huts and met these people on their travels. For some reason this somewhat of a ‘connection’ caused me to be interested in meeting various member of this family, and so when Twersky showed up in my neighborhood one week I went to see him.

JoeSettler uncovers the ultimate goal of Hamas in this war…
Why would Israel want a ceasefire. It would just signify our weakness that we blinked first.
Please, the Yeshiva boys should pray and study more and harder for this endangered young soldier!
Israeli’s are a religious people; even secular Jews believe that God is active in this world.
The beauty of a Jew is his relationship to other Jews and his involvement with Medinat Yisrael.
A ceasefire not only gives Hamas a victory, it will destroy the morale of the IDF and the country.
So-called US military aid props up US military industries while disposing of surplus supplies.
If Hamas would simply stop firing rockets into Israel, all the carnage would stop instantly.
Doug’s interview with engineer and personal finance blogger Len Penzo.
Rivlin is thought of as a warm, friendly uncle, one of the family.
In Islam, there is no such thing as peace with accursed dhimmis as the Muslims refer to us infidels.
A reader claimed the Disengagement from Gaza was good, because it reduced the number of murdered Israelis. Examining the numbers tells a different story…
JoeSettler points out that most Gazans want to leave, and most Jews want to go back home to Gush Katif. How about a solution that actually resolves the conflict?
These are the photos of our soldiers (and a citizen) killed in action during the current IDF ground operation in Gaza.
All groups have a mix of both good and bad people; it’s the ratio that differentiates us.
Bring the professor and tell him off in a way the students can respect and understand.
Saul is neither the first nor the last of the wolf pack to unite the tribes.
