Changing the Paradigm of the Haredi Jew

Universal army service will help integrate Haredim into the workplace so that they can earn a livable wage and support their families.

An Autonomous Haredi State: Having Their Cake and Eating It Too

The suggestion is intriguing, self serving and frankly somewhat humorous.

Protesting the ‘Evil Decree’? Why Not a Counter Rally?

They can say all day long that they are not protesting Israel. The fact that they will be out there in the middle of Manhattan talking about 'gezeirot' says otherwise.

Wrapped in Plastic and Hilul HaShem

When a Jew who appears to the world as the most religious among us acts like a fool that is a hilul HaShem.

The Sharansky Option

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

Solving One Problem, Sort of…

I personally see no problem with what Satmar did. They lobbied for the land and they got it. Black and Latino leaders could have done the same.

Making Lemonade out of a Cardozo Lemon

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.

Another Baby (Almost) Bites the Dust

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.

A Mistaken Plea to Klal Yisrael

Divinity exemptions are designed to produce clergy that will serve the populace, not so that every single member of it becomes a member of the clergy.

YU Must Do the Right Thing

Yeshiva University needs to admit that mistakes were made by leaders both past and present.

The Real Reason for the Fifth Cup

The fifth cup is based on a machlokes in the Gemarah.

A Quick Analysis of Obama’s Trip

I think Obama is genuine in his expression of appreciation and even admiration for the Jewish people and the State of Israel.

What Rav Shachter Said…

We were all sitting around Rav Shachter in a circle. And we were all thinking the same thing.

Societal Abandonment of the Bible as a Moral Guide

Who individuals are attracted to is none of our business and shouldn’t influence our encounters with them, but that is different than the normalization of gay sex.

A Brighter Future for Haredim in Israel

There is no reason why Haredim should continue to be the single biggest and fastest growing welfare demographic in all of Israel.

Visiting a Friend

Unlike some of his biggest detractors, I believe that the President actually likes Israel and values the friendship of the Israeli people.

Is Sabbath Observance Enough?

I would love to consider all people who observe Shabbos as observant. That was once the case.

A Hasidic Role Model

I would love to see Mrs. Freier become the role model for all Hasidic women – and not just for those like the ones she attended school with.

A View of Observant Judaism by a Non Observant Jew

Most of us know right from wrong and live as though it matters because it does. This is what David Brooks reported.

A Short but Fulfilled Life

Even though his prognosis was never good, it was still a shock when it happened.

Is Learning Torah ‘Sharing the Burden’?

Once again we see a great rabbinic figure who apparently does not understand what it is that really upsets the non-Haredi public, including many observant Jews.

Haredi leaders could not care less if Israel retains Judea and Samaria - as long as their Mosdos (religious institutions) get funded.
