10 Years after Aliyah: a Reflection

12 Kislev 5774 – November 15, 2013
At least 6-8 of my close friends left Israel over the course of the last seven years.

‘Judaism Rejects Zionism’

18 Tammuz 5773 – June 25, 2013
Now I felt totally dejected, because I realized how doubly hard it will be to detach Jews from New York.

Next Year In… Milwaukee?

24 Iyyar 5773 – May 3, 2013
I had been curious about Orthodox Union’s annual Jewish Communities Fair, and so while on tour in America, I joined the hungry Modern-Orthodox masses as they searched for new communities and a new life in far flung American locales - but not in Israel

No one in Boston gave me dirty looks. Nobody implied I was the source of all evil, somehow nefariously involved in the terrorism that had just struck.
