In the spirit of 'elu v’elu' we should just agree to disagree and respect each other’s views and lifestyles as long as they do not impinge on the rights of others.

Is Hatred for Haredim Due to Media Bias?

The record number of kipa-wearing Jews in the new Knesset surely shows that secular Jews do not really hate religious Jews.

Holding on to Judaism While Attending University

For the vast majority of students who truly want the best of both worlds, I would strongly recommend YU over any Ivy League school.

In Israel today, how many of our religious leaders instill pride in being Jewish into the secular public?

Public protests of the expansion of the Robinson's Arch area for egalitarian prayer would only generate more enmity.

I agree with Alan Dershowitz that Carter's presence at Carodozo Law School should be used as a positive.

An Appalling Critique of Gilad Shalit

Ben Caspit says the Shalit's kidnapping may have been prevented. That’s easy for him to say. He was not under rocket attack when he made these judgmental comments.

Photoshopping Women Out of the Holocaust

Digitally removing women from Holocaust photos dishonors those women and the victims and survivors of the Holocaust.

How to Lessen the Hatred

As long as rabbinic leaders live in the past and insist on calling the idea of ‘sharing the burden’ a 'shas haShmad,' antagonism toward Haredim will not change.

Rabbi Pirutinsky discussed the issue of 'metzizah b'peh' at length, concluding that if medical experts determine that there is a danger to the child, metzizah should be performed by other legitimate methods.
