Our Sages teach that when Chanukah comes around, we are to thank Hashem, not only for the miracles that He performed for us in...
My rendition of John Lennon's "Imagine."
We become a “light to the nations” precisely when we are living together in Eretz Yisrael.
Recognizing the terrible danger of unsupervised Internet viewing has extra significance now, at the time of Hanukah.
The modern day Hellenists are the Jews of the Diaspora who have the ability to move to Israel, but prefer to identify with a foreign country and foreign culture.
“It wasn’t the Greeks whom the Israelis conquered. They were Palestine refugees from Syria."
Emunah, the very heart of the Torah, teaches us what God and the Nation of Israel are all about.
While my writing may be blunt and painful to some, I don’t blame the Jews in the Diaspora for their misunderstanding of what the Torah is really all about.
Pure Judaism? Without the Land of Israel? Sorry, but that isn’t Judaism. It’s a new religion.
Diaspora Jewry should examine their role in Israel's failures to combat Palestinian moves at the UN.
Just so the jolly little elves and white-bearded Santas don’t fool you, it pays to recall the truth about Christianity.
Hamas's celebrations of victory are based on fantasy and lies, and their joy won’t last when we hit them ten times as hard the next time.
For a Jew, everyday is Thanksgiving!
Dear Son, Do not be confused. Know who the enemy is. With all the meaningless talk of peace agreements and cease fires, the satanic enemy...
We learned in Lebanon that we can’t defeat the enemy with our Air Force alone. What’s the point of a truce that will last for three weeks until Hamas fires more rockets at Israel?
Some people like the smell of napalm in the morning, but I love the smell of missiles.
This past year, the government of Syria has slaughtered 50,000 truly innocent civilians. Does the world give a damn? No.
So know that I am with you. So is your mother. The whole Shabbat, she waited for the moment she could turn on the radio to learn what was happening.
These “civilians” are not “innocent.”
What do you say to your son as he waits on the outskirts of Gaza? This is the message that I sent him.
The “Amud HaAnan” Operation which Tzahal has now undertaken is intended to protect our beleaguered citizens in the south. But it is much more than that.
Strolling around Tel Aviv and seeing how the words of our Prophets have come to pass in our generation, is as much of a spiritual experience as spending a day in the holy city of Tzfat.
Last week, I drove with my wife toward the coastline to do a little seaside touring. As we were driving there, she mentioned that someone in her family was going for a vacation to Austria. “Austria?” I blurted, nearly losing control of the wheel. “Why would any Jew in Israel want to go to Austria?”
Before Shabbat, the Heavens opened with a symphony of thunder and lightning, and the great blessing of rain washed over the Land of Israel in answer to our prayers. Like I do every year with the very first rain, I hurried outside and danced in joy, laughing happily as the raindrops splashed on my face.
We spent Shabbat in Ashkelon, visiting my wife’s parents. On Motzei Shabbat, my wife stayed in Ashkelon (in the red glare of the rockets fired from Gaza) so that she could take her mother for a medical treatment in the morning. I drove back to Yerushalayim with my children. Along the way, we passed a stretch of fertile farmland. The heavenly rains that had fallen during Shabbat seemed to have awakened the earth, and the pungent aroma of fresh cow manure wafted into the car. My younger boys started gagging and making jokes, the way children do about such things.
