A storm is not a good time to be at the wheel of a ship and a worldwide economic disaster is not a good time to be at the wheel of the ship of state. Hard times are supposed to bring great men to the fore, but instead we have some of the sorriest men in history trying to find the wheel, sleeping off a bender in their cabins or debating whether a wheel even exists.

Beyond Words – Rabbi Meir Kahane at His Very Best

Posted on: June 3rd, 2012

BlogsFelafel on Rye

Why be a Jew!!! It is an agonizing cry from the souls of tens of thousands of young Jews who assimilate, integrate and disappear into the outer space beyond Judaism. It is THE cry, THE question. It is asked by young men and women who have seen the emptiness and the vapidness of the Judaism they grew up with.

Letter to a Reform Jew

Posted on: June 1st, 2012

BlogsFelafel on Rye

The fact that a Reform Jew wishes to adopt a counterfeit form of “Judaism” is his affair. But the religious Jew is not bound by that. The State of Israel does not have to recognize on an official level the falsehood that every Jew may adopt on a private level.

The Patriotism of Palestinianism

Diplomats have developed a bad habit of insisting on a dysfunctional status quo tilted toward the Muslim side, until the messiah of final status finally comes. There can be no Jewish housing in Jerusalem, because it's a final status issue, we can't count the refugees because it's a final status issue, and we can't question the final status, because that too is a final status issue.

You Can be a Giant!

When a Jew makes Aliyah to Eretz Yisrael, the letters of his soul shift into high gear and multiply in size. All of his being gets bigger. He grows closer to God. Compared to the person he was in Galut, he becomes larger than life. He transforms into a giant, filled with greater valor, greater holiness, greater happiness and wisdom.

‘Media Be Dead’ and Other Mild Observations

MEDIA BE DEAD Almost 200 years ago, French painter Paul Delaroche declared, allegedly, “From today painting is dead,” after he had learned about Daguerre’s discovery that exposing an iodized silver plate in a camera creates a lasting image if the latent image on the plate is developed and fixed. I imagine Johannes Gutenberg or someone […]

“Why Should I Live in Israel? America Has Everything I Need”

Posted on: May 23rd, 2012

BlogsFelafel on Rye

One of the questions a person is asked when he reaches his Heavenly rest is, "Did you yearn for Salvation?" If a Jew does not long for the Redemption, for Salvation from the exile, then something is wrong. If he is happy in the Diaspora, then his Judaism is out of focus, and he is out of touch with his soul's deepest yearnings. As The Kuzari poignantly declares, his prayers for Jerusalem and Zion are like the chatterings of a nightingale, melodious but empty of meaning.

Don’t Ask What Israel Can Do For You – Ask What You Can Do For Israel

Posted on: May 22nd, 2012

BlogsFelafel on Rye

The thought that Eretz Yisrael is an accessory to Judaism, and not a central pillar in itself, is a tragic distortion which was caused by the nearly 2000 year exile of the Jewish People from the Land of Israel. After years of wandering - scattered among the gentiles, separated from our homeland- our orientation to the Land of Israel became distorted and confused.
