A Message From One of their Own

R’ Yaakov’s experiences once he left the cocoon of the Lakewood environment provided him with an entirely different perspective on what non Jews are really like.

Are We Fulfilling our Mission to the World?

I get so worked up when one of us, especially one who is observant, somehow misbehaves in any way.

Religious Zionists Are Amalek? Just Shoot Me Now!

The rhetoric that has accompanied the proposed legislation to subject Charedim the draft seems to be bordering on hysteria.

We Cannot Allow Pain to Drive the Jewish Agenda

Unlike the survivors of abuse that took place at YU, I do not want to see YU close down.

Teaching a Doctrine of Hate

Satmar has long ago established itself as anti Israel and everyone knows it. Standing on the same stage creates the perception of endorsing their views.

Whose Fault Was the Haredi Attack Anyway?

I am not angry at the dogs who attacked a Charedi soldier. But I am upset at the Rabbinic leadership who have thus far remained silent.

The ‘Houses of Ill Repute’ of Nahal and Shahar

The fault lies in the attitudes fostered in the societies that produce these animals.

Achdus and Misplaced Umbrage

The latest volley in the intra-Orthodox ‘wars’ is the one between one of my heroes, Lord, Rabbi Jonathan Sacks and the rabbinic leaders of Agudah.

Collateral Damage and Truth

The backlash is coming in the form of attacking Charedi recruits.

The True Character of Great Leaders

"Yeshiva University is not only an institution. It is a faith, a vision, a dream, a destiny. It has been my faith, my vision, my dream, and my destiny."

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.

Unmasking the Truth

Rabbi Bloom’s condescending condemnation is particularly troubling because he clearly bases it on assumptions about someone he has never met.

The Supreme Court Decision on DOMA

In a democracy that separates church from state, it makes sense to not allow biblical prohibitions to impede freedom to those who do not believe in the bible.

Rabbi Sacks is All that Is Right with Judaism

I do not envy Chief Rabbi Elect, Ephraim Mirvis. Lord Sacks’ shoes will be hard to fill.

The Truth Will Set You Free

They used the same litany against the government heard repeatedly from the right, vilifying Zionism in all its forms from its inception to this day.

Two Traitors

The circumstances of the Edward Snowden case are not so different from Jonathan Pollard's.

Can This be True?

Rabbi Metzger denies everything. I hope that’s true.

Will Jonathan Rosenblum Apologize to MK Rabbi Dov Lipman?

The Charedi rabbinic leaders in Israel who are not accustomed to American standards are afraid of them.

A Rational but Insufficient Haredi Response

Rav Lopiansky tries to actually answer some of the questions I have publicly asked about the current Charedi opposition to drafting Charedim into the army.

Jonathan Rosenblum’s Hit Piece on Dov Lipman and the RCA

One of the arguments Jonathan makes is that we here in the United States ought to ‘not mix in’ to the issues affecting Charedim in Israel.

Does Elu V’Elu Mean Tolerating the Intolerable?

This was simply an opportunity to capitalize on something they thought would have universal appeal in the Charedi world.

Stop the Vilification

No matter how many times Lapid says he does not want to destroy Charedi Judaism, they see him as disingenuous with an ulterior motive to destroy the Charedi way of life.

WoW, Charedim, and Learning from History

Albert Einstein once said that the definition of insanity is doing the same experiment twice and expecting different results.

100 Kids Kicked off a Plane Because No One Taught Them Midos

“What’s the Matter with Kids Today”. That is the title of a song sung by actor Paul Lynde from the 1960s musical Bye Bye Birdie....
