The Jewish King Of Poland

13 Tevet 5767 – January 3, 2007
Saul Wahl's story is one of the most intriguing of all the legendary stories concerning Polish Jewry.

Chanukah In Poland

6 Tevet 5767 – December 27, 2006
The Polish Jewish community held its first public menorah-lighting ceremony Sunday evening, the third night of Chanukah.

The Urgent Need For An Israeli Nuclear Doctrine

Israel's policy of opacity or deliberate ambiguity on nuclear weapons had already been breached long before Prime Minister Olmert's public statement on December 11th. And it was also breached at the prime-ministerial level, no less. More than 10 years ago, Shimon Peres explicitly undermined Israel's longstanding commitment to keep the bomb in the "basement."

Israel, The Baker-Hamilton Report And Regional Nuclear War

29 Kislev 5767 – December 20, 2006
Blessed by newly anticipated changes in American foreign policy, certain of Israel's adversaries could soon attempt to bring the Jewish State into the eternal darkness, into fire, into ice. It is therefore essential for Israel's leadership to take immediate steps to ensure that a Baker-Hamilton [Iraq Study Group heads] engendered failure of Israeli deterrence will not occasion a regional nuclear war. Israel must continue to plan around the sound understanding that nuclear deterrence and conventional deterrence remain critically interrelated.

Chelm Revisited

We recently returned to Israel after a short visit to the United States.

‘Give Me Your Children’: Voices From The Lodz Ghetto

The United States Holocaust Memorial Museum opened an exhibit last week remembering the children of the Lodz Ghetto.

Why Children Shoot Other Children At School

22 Kislev 5767 – December 13, 2006
We Jews have had to grow accustomed to perverse celebrations of death by large segments of the Islamic world. Sadly, such familiarity is now compelled by the rationale of Islamic terrorists in justifying their wanton murder of Israelis. For these terrorists, the Jewish worship of life is a sign of weakness and an expression of shaky faith.

Wysokie Mazowiecie

Recently the Jewish cemetery at Wysokie Mazowiecie held a ceremony marking the first stage of its restoration project.

Recognizing Terrorism As A Sacrificial Rite: The Darkly Primitive Roots of Arab/Islamic Suicide Bombing

15 Kislev 5767 – December 6, 2006
One of the most basic facts about our current Clash of Civilizations remains unrecognized. The true rationale of Arab/Islamic suicide bombing terrorism does not lie in politics. It is, more than anything, an example of religiously based blood sacrifice, a primal ritual designed to enlist divine assistance in Jihad.

The Keys

A visit to the United States, while pleasant, often restores for us the excitement of living in Israel and reminds us of why we went to live there in the first place - especially around this time of year.

Jewish Polish Posters At JCC

8 Kislev 5767 – November 29, 2006
It is a little known fact in the Jewish world that Poland is famous for its artistic posters.

As Important As The Threats From Iran And North Korea, Is Countering The Triumphant...

1 Kislev 5767 – November 22, 2006
We Americans now live with an entirely reasonable fear of war and terror. Indeed, there is precious little doubt that our country will become a recurrent victim of new attacks by those who openly seek the genocidal destruction of "infidels."

Fighting Palestinian Terrorism In Gaza The View According To International Law

24 Heshvan 5767 – November 15, 2006
It is easy to feel sorry for the Palestinians in Gaza. Televised and print images of their apparently unrelieved misery would appear to suggest Israeli cruelty in the use of armed force. Exactly the opposite is true. By deliberately placing elderly women and young children in areas from which lethal rockets are launched into Israeli homes and schools, it is only the Palestinian leaders who openly violate the law of war.

Lodz Jewish Cemetery

The cemetery in Lodz is said to be one of the largest Jewish cemeteries in Europe, with about 230,000 graves.

Perfidy And The Growing Threat Of Mega-Terror Against Israel

17 Heshvan 5767 – November 8, 2006
Concluded in mid-September, the sixth annual International Conference on Global Terrorism in Herzliya, Israel, underscored the growing threat of mega-terror. To a large extent, this existential threat to Israel is made worse by the always-deliberate insertion of terrorist personnel and assets in the midst of civilian populations.

The Bully Is Threatening

I am often amazed by the reaction of world governments to the bullying tactics of the Muslim world.

Radegast Station Of Lodz

The name Radegast Station might not be familiar to most people.

Freeing Marwan Barghouti Would Violate International Law And Imperil Israel

10 Heshvan 5767 – November 1, 2006
U.S. Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice has reportedly asked Israeli Prime Minister Ehud Olmert to free imprisoned terrorist Marwan Barghouti. Her argument, it would appear, is that the Tanzim leader remains very popular among the Palestinians, and that he is the only Fatah representative who could successfully supplant the Hamas-led government.

Pain And Terror

3 Heshvan 5767 – October 25, 2006
We Jews have experienced so much pain in our long and arduous history that the pain of Islamic terrorism seems to be just another episode of indescribable suffering. To an extent, this is certainly true. For the moment, we must endure, and - in the end - we shall prevail. So it has been before; so it will be again.
