State of the State

We observe the precepts of the Torah because Hashem commanded us to perform them. How much more, HaRav Tzvi Yehuda HaKohen Kook said, is this true with the mitzvah to dwell in the Land of Israel

Diaspora Jews pass on the whole spirit and soul of Torah and the messages of Passover, which is the attainment of true Jewish freedom through establishing a holy Torah Nation in the Land of Israel.

Why Mourn about Exile?

All of our life changes when we are in Galut. Not only does our Clalli soul disappear, but every detail of our life is affected. In exile, Emunah appears in an incomplete form

The Falconi Effect

Still time to add a great read to your summer list.

History Repeats Itself

I love the Jewish People. That’s why I write what I write. History repeats itself. What happened in Spain and Germany will, in one way or another, transpire in America, France, and England, too

The Fourth of ‘Jewlie’ – Who Cares?

To all you Jews in America enjoy the 4th, but remember, the Torah wants a Jew to praise G-d for having given him the Land of Israel, not for the old US of A.

Israel? No Thanks

Once again today, Diasporas leaders are not leading the Jewish People to Israel. Instead the Jews in the Diaspora are 'diasporing' away.

Jews! Three Days to Get Out!

The BDS group SJP (Students for Justice in Palestine) placed 'eviction' notices on Jews' dorm rooms, I'm glad. At least someone in US is telling young Jews that they don’t belong in America.

We can disagree with a reform Jew and even despise his opinions, but we should love him for his connection to the Jewish Nation.

Dr. Irving Moskowitz: Builder of Jerusalem

Mrs. Cherna Moskowitz: "Irv’s passion was creating and developing businesses so that he could help Israel. For him, this was the right thing to do."

Stop Feeding Them “Lukshion”

The lesson to be learned is that aliyah is the only answer.

Book Week in Israel

Why are so many Jewish writers in America screaming Leftists? Why do they consider their Israeli brothers “occupiers,” and champion the Palestinian cause?

Lieberman – Learn Some Torah!

Our task as Jews and as a holy Nation is to link the physical world with the Divine. As Rabbi Kook makes clear, Eretz Yisrael is the G-d given place ideally suited for this task.

No More Half-Way Judaism

Since Rosh Hashanah, 67 Orthodox young people under the age of 35, in the tri-state area have died because of substance abuse. 21 suicides, 41 drug overdoses, and 5 alcohol-related deaths!

All of our security and wellbeing, both in a national, military sense, and in the camp of our homes, depends on our personal purity.

“And you shall tell your sons”…the truth

As Hashem didn’t want us to continue living in Egypt, He doesn’t want us to continue living in Brooklyn or Brussels today. Hashem gave us the Land of Israel to live in

The Cultural Lobotomy

Many Jews in the Diaspora don’t understand the meaning of the Haggadah's statement: “This year, we are here; next year, in the Land of Israel. This year, we are slaves; next year, free people.” It means NOW!
