Tznius Squads: Can This Really be Judaism?

The extreme emphasis on tznius (modesty) has even led to husbands and wives being buried in separate locations.

Whose Judaism is it Anyway?

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?!

A Haredi Role Model

A Haredi organization helps Haredim be brought up to speed to meet the challenges of the modern work place.

An Existential Analysis

If we are going to survive as a Jewish people, we must revise the system.

An Ignorant Student

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

What Is the Biggest Problem Facing Judaism?

My own view of things is that there is a tremendous amount of disillusionment in the Orthodox world.

Technology, the Move to the Right and The Jewish Press

I hope that the Jewish Press stays the paper of record for Orthodox Jewry. If it were to fold - the loss would be a devastating blow to moderation.

Can Women say Kaddish?

I do not see this as a feminist issue at all. This is a human issue.

Netanyahu’s Mistake

In every move the Prime Minster has taken since the Presidential election, he has had complete U.S. support. Now Israel has taken a step backward.

Touching the Opposite Sex

'Shomer negiah,' the halachic bar on physical contact with the opposite sex, is wrongly treated by many as a Chumra that many do not observe.

The Trial of a Rasha

The facts of the case are so revealing that one would have to be blind, deaf, and dumb to think this man is innocent.

According to Rav Meir Porush, it is better for Yeshiva students to sit in jail than to serve their country.

The Problem with Haredi Magazines

Really? They had to ask the Rosh Yeshiva if they could help people?

I see nothing wrong with our participating with all American citizens in observing Thanksgiving.

For Gaza: Peace or Devastation

Israel should continue to try and avoid civilian casualties as much as possible - but basically bomb Gaza into the stone age.

Why Bill Cosby is a Great Man

The clip shows he truly understands antisemitism.

Rating the Major US Networks on Gaza

Of the 3 networks, I think CBS had the most comprehensive and fair coverage of all. ABC is so far the most biased.

Praise the Lord and Pass the Ammunition

In times of trouble like these, it behooves us to remember a phrase made popular in song after the attack in Pearl Harbor during World War II. A phrase that speaks to Hishtadlus: Praise the Lord and pass the ammunition.

Removing the Evil from Our Midst

Israel ought to take advantage of this new world order and clean house in Gaza.

Hooligans?!

They can say it is only the hooligans and that every society has hooligans. I don't believe them.

A Kaliver Example for the Torah World

Wouldn’t it be wonderful if instead of Hashkafic politics we could all be interested teaching Torah L’shma to anyone, anywhere without any Hashkafic pre-conditions?
