Dear Dr. Yael

There are dire repercussions for ignoring the Talmudic prohibition of talking in shul.

Steps Along The Way

Fast forward to 1977. Larry had already begun to become observant while in graduate school. When his PhD research flopped that year, Larry decided to pack his bags and headed to Eretz Yisrael to work on a kibbutz.

Even ‘Observant’ Families Need The Cleansing Force Of Torah

To create the Torah lives we want, we ALL need life coaches: rabbis and teachers who are willing to address our failings. More important, we must be willing to accept their admonishment with an open heart and appreciation,

Trust…When It Counts

Avraham’s message to Eliezer was: You are my CEO. I trust you with my possessions and my material wealth, with the blessings of this world – but not with my spiritual future or the spiritual future of my progeny. That is why he made Eliezer take the oath.

Avraham’s Destiny

The real question is not why Lot returned to Sodom, but why Avraham endangered his entire historic mission to save him. The answer: Avraham did not only go to war to save Lot; he also went to SAVE his mission which Lot’s capture placed in jeopardy.

Is Compromise An Admission? (Siman 77:7)

The lender who sued must hold half of what he collected on trust for the other lender.

Q & A: Where To Light Shabbat Candles? (Part II)

Question: My husband and I are frequent Shabbos guests at our children’s homes nearby. Where should I light Shabbos candles – in my home or theirs? Name Withheld

Incarceration Under Jewish Law (Sanhedrin 81b)

The authority to incarcerate a person and deny freedom in certain situations is part of halacha le Moshe Mi’Sinai, the Oral Law conveyed by God to Moshe and by Moshe to the people of Israel.

Shira Shirim

I told her not to do anything or say anything and I immediately called Rabbi Gerlitzky, the Lubavitcher Rebbe's shaliach in Tel Aviv and a dear friend of the family. I told him the story.

The Phone Call

If Hashem wants a person to have something, he will have it, and no one in the world can take away what is coming to to him.

The Hand Of God

The owner searched every which way he could but he could not understand why the company’s finances suddenly took a dive.

The Greatness Of The Avos

Sarah Imeinu was a strong, emotionally stable woman. She had unshakable bitachon, having lived through many trials and travails.

American Jews Trying To Save Gaza Tunnel Terrorists

Adalah doesn’t hide its agenda. It's openly and proudly against Israel. No, it’s the New Israel Fund that’s doing the hiding. Buried deep in the NIF brochure was a passing reference to Adalah as one of the NIF-supported “human rights organizations”

A Dual Universe

What I believe we can take from this thought is the understanding that there is a dual universe, a spiritual-metaphysical universe that mirrors the physical one that we live in.

Settled For Less

But I borrowed the phone, so your liability is to me, responded Avi. Who cares what went on between me and Yitzi?

I’m Not Ignoring You, Mom

I’m not ignoring my beloved mom. I simply stopped mourning my loss, as her life is now instilled in our children, whom we will raise in the way she would have loved – with manners, respect, and a healthy Jewish identity.

The World’s Oldest Man

Abraham and Holocaust survivors shared the commitment to first building the future and only then allowing themselves to remember the past. That is what Abraham did in this week’s parsha.

The Jewish Journey

Avraham and Sarah ended up in the land of Canaan. Canaan? The most debased and decadent society! Yet, there Avraham and Sarah build their destiny and shape world history. Canaan actually held the key to Avraham and Sarah's redemption.

Aaron Judge, Jose Altuve, And More

I enjoyed watching the Yankees this year with their young players like Judge and Gary Sanchez.

Who Killed Chaim Arlosoroff?

The Reich, which considered Eretz Yisrael a suitable dumping ground for ridding itself of Jewish refugees and “misfits,” sought to bolster the weak German economy by reaping a financial windfall through a payoff from Zionist leaders.

G-d, Do You Love me?

Everyone wants to feel loved and accepted. Everyone wants to feel respected and honored. But what about the people who are never noticed?

A Visit To Chevron

It is both disconcerting and reassuring to sit in a bulletproof bus. The double glass, which is impossible to really clean, doesn’t lend itself to photography, so I thought I’d relax on the journey.
