An Anti-Semitic Smear Gets Another Hearing

Those who want to besmirch Israel’s supporters as undermining U.S. interests without being rightly labeled as anti-Semites are fooling no one.

The Greatest Libel Since the Blood Libel

That America today oppresses minorities and women is as far from the truth as was the claim that Jews used Christian blood for matzah. Indeed, no country in the world is so accepting of minorities as fellow citizens as America.

Do You Eat In The Sukkah On Shemini Atzeret ?

The Torah commands us to sit in the sukkah for seven days. Should we sit in the sukkah on a day that may be the eighth day when we are not commanded to sit in the sukkah at all?

Mixed Tzedakah

There were always some organizations, though, that would not come to collect the money until after Yom Kippur. Mr. Sender was careful to place each tzedakah plate neatly under the bimah.

Q & A: Unforgiving

Question: A while back I wronged someone. When I realized my error and the pain it caused, I made restitution and also offered a sincere apology. While the restitution was accepted, the party still continues to bear a grudge even though I have made repeated entreaties to him. I am sure that if the situation were reversed, the individual would expect me to forgive him. Is it possible for you to discuss the concept of “loving your fellow man as yourself”? I am sure it will be helpful to me and many other readers. M.G. Miami Beach, FL

Your Gashmius Is My Ruchnius

What possible comparison is there between this simple mitzvah of leaving a portion to the poor man and the colossal mitzvah of bringing all of the sacrifices on each holiday?

Age Of Identity

World wars made national identity, and later made identity, in general, a dirty word. Seventy years later, humanity once again is seeking identity. The holiday of sukkot exemplifies the concept of identity for the Jewish nation, and all the nations of the world.

Yes, There’s Room For Israel

The premise of the Torah is that G-d must be found somewhere in particular if He is to be found everywhere in general. As Shabbat is holy time, Israel is holy space. That is why, in Judaism, religion is tied to a land, and a land is linked to a religion.

The Summer Of ‘67

Events morphed into what became known as the Six-Day War. While the war lasted less than a week, millions of words were devoted to it in newspapers and magazines over the days and weeks that followed.

The Iran Nuclear Deal: To Certify Or Not To Certify

So even if there is no certification, the U.S. doesn’t automatically opt out of JCPOA, as The New York Times erroneously editorialized last week.

The Administration, Transgender Rights, And Contraception

It could hardly be argued that the lawmakers of the time had “transgenderism” even remotely in mind when they acted to outlaw sex discrimination.

Developing The Special Bond

We have neither of the mitzvos at this point. The tefillin were sold and the esrog is invalid. Let us at least have shalom bayis [marital accord and harmony].

What should you have in your life’s backpack? What skills are essential for you to live your best life?
