Dissing the Rav

The T that is missing is in the honorific ‘ZTL’ written after the name of rabbinic leaders that have passed away.

There Is No Joy in New Square

The joyous members of Skvere had absolutely no compassion for this poor woman. They only saw someone who left the community and went OTD.

The Good News and the Bad for Orthodoxy

Even though 10% of Jewry identifies as Orthodox, 14% to 17% say they were raised Orthodox.

YCT, Heterodoxy, and Agudah

It is a fact that heterodoxy is no longer the threat to Orthodoxy it once was – if at all.

Succumbing to Temptation

I don’t know what it is that turns good people into crooks.

Images of ‘the Other’

Images of ‘the other’ are heavily biased by what the media report about them.

Yom Tov Sheni in Israel

I do not enjoy the second Simchas Torah at all.

The Charedi world has never seen the government in a positive light and condemns it frequently.

Being frum today is an upper-middle-class pursuit.

He Murdered his Daughter

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

I hope these Breslover Chasidim got what they wanted out of this visit… and that it was worth the Chilul HaShem it ended up making.

Of Yoatzot and Shtenders

Some have argued that the advent of Yoatzot is a slippery slope towards the ordination of female rabbis.

Putting the Blame Where it Really Belongs

He has taught his Chasidim that one of the worst sins a Jew can do is inform on a fellow Jew to the government.

Doing Battle with WoW

I disagree with continuing to make an issue of it.

Abusing Clout

When Chassidim make a request to a government official, he pays attention.

Exacting Vengeance on the Gentiles?

Seeing the sight of Jesus on a cross must have made them feel like they were seeing Avodah Zara in the Beis HaMikdash.

The Internet, Halacha, and Olam HaBah

I happen to know Gedolei Torah and Roshei Yeshiva who use I-phones and the internet. Are they all doomed?

Egypt and the Muslim Brotherhood

The Egyptian army is fighting a movement that is extremely anti Semitic as a part of its religious theology.
