Israel Under Fire, the IDF Fights Back: a Recap of Events

1 Kislev 5773 – November 15, 2012
Last night, the IDF eliminated Israel's Osama Bin Laden.
Three people were killed Thursday morning, November 15 2012, when a Grad rocket hit an apartment building in Kiryat Malachi.

Rocket Attacks 8-9 a.m.

From personal messages received from family and friends, and from scanning the online sources - here are the rocket attacks, just in one hour this morning.
Leaflet calling on Gazan civilians to "avoid being present in the vicinity of Hamas operatives."

Getting the Message out to the Innocent Victims

As massive as the fighting is, the count of dead on the Palestinian Arab side has three, perhaps two, civilians. Let's hope the effectiveness of the Israeli fighters continues at that exemplary level.

Of Course it was Planned!

I quickly lost count of how many rockets were fired at my country. At one point, the reporter was counting - "one, two, three, four, five, no six, seven, eight.

Who Shot First?

Han Solo has nothing on the question as to who shot first.

Guardian’s Israel Correspondent Won’t Publish Hamas Brutality

1 Kislev 5773 – November 14, 2012
On March 8, the Guardian published “International Women’s Day highlights hurdles obstructing women," (co-authored by 12 Guardian correspondents, including the paper’s Jerusalem correspondent, Harriet Sherwood), on the subjugation of women around the world. Harriet Sherwood not only ignored the egregious violation of womens’ rights in the Palestinian territories, but, instead, devoted 118 words to the alleged injustice meted out to a female Palestinian terrorist affiliated with Islamic Jihad held in an Israeli jail named Hana Shalabi.

I Love Tel Aviv

Strolling around Tel Aviv and seeing how the words of our Prophets have come to pass in our generation, is as much of a spiritual experience as spending a day in the holy city of Tzfat.

In Gaza, Arab-on-Arab Injuries Are a Daily Reality, but Rarely Reported

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?

Life in Southern Israel: A Student’s Blog

Greetings to all, my name is Nachalah, I am a 24-year-old student. I am studying communications and graphic designing at Sapir College… Sapir College in Southern Israel is under fire, situated near Sderot and the surrounding Kibbutzim, where the bravest children in the world live.

More Beautiful than Everest

29 Heshvan 5773 – November 13, 2012
Last week, I drove with my wife toward the coastline to do a little seaside touring. As we were driving there, she mentioned that someone in her family was going for a vacation to Austria. “Austria?” I blurted, nearly losing control of the wheel. “Why would any Jew in Israel want to go to Austria?”

Rabbi Chaim Dovid Zwiebel

In what may appear as one of the more interesting ironies to some, the Forward has chosen Rabbi Chaim Dovid Zwiebel (pictured here with Senator Joseph Lieberman) as one of the top 5 most influential Jews in America. (They did not say which position he holds on that short list.)

Jewish Mothers Have Rights

I'm not a fan of Shimon Peres - I have to be honest. If I look back over his career as a politician...well, I'd rather not. But Peres has his moments. He is very supportive of women. I heard him speak a few months ago. He spoke of men as babies and says women run the world, ground it, nurture it.

My Response to the Monsey Rabbi

An American orthodox rabbi in Monsey recently wrote a response on Facebook to a post about the importance of living in the Land of Israel. His response was as follows: "You're in exile, too. Last I checked, there is still a mosque on the temple mount, with Arabs shooting rockets [at you].” This is my response to him and to every orthodox Jew who shares that mistaken view.

Over Here, my Rain Is Happy!

28 Heshvan 5773 – November 12, 2012
Before Shabbat, the Heavens opened with a symphony of thunder and lightning, and the great blessing of rain washed over the Land of Israel in answer to our prayers. Like I do every year with the very first rain, I hurried outside and danced in joy, laughing happily as the raindrops splashed on my face.
Alex Clare

Who is Alex Clare? And Why Do I care?

Who is Alex Clare? He is a British pop singer with a top ten single entitled Too Close. He is the ex-boyfriend of Amy Winehouse. And he is an observant Jew. How - one might ask - does an Orthodox Jew hook up with someone like Amy Whitehouse, a mega popular Grammy award winning Jewish singer who was anything but observant? And who had a history of drug addiction and alcohol abuse that eventually caused her death?
