Dear Dr. Yael

Marriage is all about compromise and making sacrifices.

“The Temple Mount Is In Our Hands”

Suddenly it dawned on me that in 1967, during the Six-Day War, the armies of Israel recaptured the Temple Mount and the surrounding outer wall, which we refer to as the Kotel.

Is Davening A Challenge?

Once you are aware of WHY we are able to daven, you will think about the meaning of what you’re saying. Then davening becomes an opportunity to clarify our relationship with God.

Fighting Incitement, Aiding Integration In Jerusalem

School is back in session and with it is a new initiative to fight anti-Israel lessons in textbooks used by Palestinian schoolchildren

Throwing Off The Burden Of Sin The Real Meaning Of Tashlich

If our teshuva is real, if we feel sincere regret and have resolved to become better, Hashem will look at us as new people.

Receiving The Shabbos And Connecting To Hashem

Additionally, the day of Shabbos intrinsically carries with it a potential for spirituality and connection to Hashem that no other day has.

From The Home Front

It used to be that when our youngest boys were about to go outside and it was cold, I’d sometimes remind them to take a jacket. Now I remind our youngest son, Yisrael Meir, to take pepper spray.

For Every Coin, An Address

She spoke with a smile on her face, exuding a calm acceptance of her less-than-ideal circumstances.

Q & A: Women’s Simchat Yom Tov Obligation

Unaltered Dress

When the employer stipulates clearly that the work must be done by a certain time, failure to complete it on time is a breach of contract, replied Rabbi Dayan.

To Avenge Or Not To Avenge: That Is The Question

The search for perfect justice is not for us, here, now. It is – as Moses taught the Israelites in the great song he sang at the end of his life – something that faith demands we leave to G-d, who alone knows the human heart, who alone knows what is just in a world of conflicting claims, and who will establish perfect justice at a time, and in a way, of His choosing, not ours.

The Intrigue Of The Akeidah

I would like to suggest another approach to the akeidah narrative, one that perhaps ties the essence of the akeidah to Rosh Hashanah, and is alluded to within the tefillah itself.

An Opportunity To Recreate Ourselves (Part II)

Rosh Hashanah is here again. How will you pray this time? Will you reunite with your Heavenly Father this year? Will your visit with Him have meaning, or will it be “same old, same old”?

Who By Water

I attempted to look at the words more metaphorically: Who shall be tormented by the fire of ambition … who shall hunger for companionship … who shall thirst for approval … who shall be strangled by insecurity … who shall be plagued by the pressures of conformity. It made more sense to me that way, as it broadened the scope of the potential universe.

The Scholarship Of David Fuchs

Aside from just seeing his name associated with the Koren liturgical works there is a very special person behind the name David Fuchs whose biography will be the subject of this week’s essay.

Teshuvah Is Easy; Change Is Difficult

Clearly, the sin was forgiven, so why couldn’t the Jews look at Moshe’s face?

Two Days Rosh Hashanah, Eruvin, And Eggs

On the night immediately following the 29th day of Elul and on the 30th day of Elul itself, people hedged their bets. They ceased work, went to the synagogue, recited the Rosh Hashanah prayers and blew the shofar, all in a tentative state of mind.
