Emes Ve-Emunah: What They Really Want

Thought the fight over the Kotel was about egalitarianism? Wrong. Conservative leader, Rabbi Steven Wernick, has made that very clear: "The issue is about legitimization, it’s about recognition,"

Blaming the Jews

Jews get stabbed in Israel and Sec'y of State Kerry says it’s about the settlements. What nonsense!

Pushing the Boundaries of Outreach

As Orthodox Jews who understand the value of the Torah and the importance of following Halacha – how can we change this new secular Jewish paradigm?

Emes Ve-Emunah: Outreach that Legitimizes Heterodoxy

Are there situations when Orthodox rabbis can interact with heterodox rabbis or enter their space?

Jewish Education and Jewish Philanthropy

We must convince Jewish billionaires to support Jewish education in ways they support other projects

Righting a Wrong

Why are employers reluctant to hire Charedim? Legitimate concerns or plain old fashioned prejudice?

Emes Ve-Emunah: Listening to the Lord

Eschewing labels, Lord Sacks prefers the term "Jews Engaged with the World"(JEW)to Modern Orthodox

Some of My Best Friends Are…

When journalists question why a black woman won a beauty contest - even if it is disguised as referring only to this particular black woman - I think that is sad.

Emes Ve-Emunah: Two Torahs? Now More than Ever!

There is apparently one Torah for Jews in America, and one for Jews in Israel.

Police?…Or Shomrim?

The public the Shomrim serve trusts them more than the police. They ought to be disabused of that notion. Shomrim should be an auxiliary to the police, not the other way around.

Debunking the ‘Age Gap Theory’…Again

How manipulating shadchanim and even offering financial "incentives" to marry men off to older women is ethically sound or halachically permissible has yet to be explained.

How Can We Support Israel with all this Internal Strife?

I don’t see why any group has to identify itself as gay or straight in this parade.

Expressing Gratitude on Thanksgiving

My Rebbe, Rav Ahron Soloveichik, permits celebrating the day with a festive family turkey dinner.

In Appreciation to My Readers…

I wish to thank all of my readers for your support in helping to make this blog the success that it is.

Emes Ve-Emunah: It’s Mad Dog!

Sec'y of Defense nominee Marine Gen. James Mattis' nickname ‘Mad Dog’ is well earned. He once made the following statement: “Be polite, be professional, but have a plan to kill everybody you meet.”

Another Charedi Cry for Help

This very bright Chareidi young man was unable to earn a decent living because he had NO education

He Murdered his Daughter

What would compel a devout Jewish father to take the life of his own child?

Religious Pluralism Within Orthodoxy

My harsh criticism is reserved for extremist behavior that is a result of those Hashkafos – even if it is from my own.

MK Dov Lipman – Must See TV (Video)

It is time to let Rabbi Lipman speak for himself and explain what he is doing and why.

The Impressions of an Expert on Pedophilia

The revision of the DSM that omitted homosexuality was not based on research, nor was much else. It was "political" pressure.

Jewish Education and Moderation is the Key

Despite its shortcomings, Jewish education is the key not only to Jewish survival but to its growth.

Well Intentioned, but Wrong to Condone Homosexuality

Making gay marriage not just value neutral but something positive. It is in effect koshering a forbidden lifestyle.

Scaring Us Straight

If not scared by God be scared by man; Hopefully ethics will integrate into lives for proper reasons

Memo to the President: Compromise on the Budget

The fault lies with both the executive and legislative branches of government. Neither wants to budge from their ideological positions.

Making a Horse Look Like an Elephant

I believe that Partnership Minyanim are sourced in a culture that is foreign to Judaism - the radical feminist ideal of equating the sexes in all areas of life. In Orthodoxy that idea is doomed to failure. The mere fact that women can never be counted towards constituting a Minyan means that equality can never be fully achieved in the sense that feminism requires it. Even if there are a hundred women and 9 men, there is no Minyan.
