To Be (Anonymous) or Not to Be

Although I allow people to post anonymously (albeit with at least an alias) I would prefer that people stand by their words and not be afraid of them.

There are always people who in cases like this will cast the victim as a provocateur.

Individual therapy can be very helpful as long as the therapist does not turn his or her client against the spouse without hearing their side of it.

By now a critical mass of Charedim has learned and internalized that the evils – which are real – are not the only thing the internet has to offer.

What Is Sexual Abuse?

Should a university be sued because their officials at that time misread those events as relatively harmless?

Another Milestone for the Jewish People in America

I said I am proud of the President for choosing the best man for the job at Treasury even though he is Jewish.

Telling it Like it is – Publicly

No matter how altruistic one is - if he is afraid to speak the truth out of fear of being attacked, that is not leadership.

Don’t Push Too Hard Against Hagel Nomination

While it is the right of every American to lobby congress for their legitimate needs, I think our case has already been well made.

A Bad Pick for Secretary of Defense

I fear that if Israel ever faces existential danger such as that threatened by Iran, Hagel might just say that he is not the Defense Minster of Israel.

The tragedy that we face today is that everyone thinks they are the sole possessors of the answer.

Every Jew – a .22?

I believe that the massacre in Newton would never have happened if guns were made illegal.

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.

Mr. President, What Are You Thinking?

How many times do we have to hear statements like 'the Jews have too much Power' before we realize that the people saying it are anti- Semites?!

It isn’t only important how hard a student studies, but what he studies.
