Bret Stephens: ‘America Must Be The World’s Cop’

What’s important is to make the case for Israel more forcefully and to give it the articulation that the next presidential candidates ought to have.

An Author With A Knack For Controversy

Driven To The Truth

Where did this incredible strength come from? What drove these Jews, who had nearly lost all of their national identity and spiritual connectivity, to risk their lives by standing up against one of the strongest and most fearsome governments of its time?

Confessions Of A Judaica Document Collector

This marked the first time I experienced the palpable sense of living, breathing history in my hands. “This is actually for sale?” I asked. “But how do I know it’s real?”
Marvin Schick

The Rabbi Jacob Joseph School And Me

To say he was beloved because of the way he loved his students does not sufficiently capture the reality.

Behind The Curtain Of Anti-Israel Rage

While not all criticism of Israel stemmed from anti-Semitism, Podhoretz contends the level of animosity towards Israel rises exponentially the farther left one moved along the spectrum.

Our Master Teacher

Does it not seem ironic that just on the day all of Israel is joyously celebrating another year of having concluded the public reading of the entire Pentateuch, we must mournfully and even tearfully commemorate the death of the individual who imparted to us God’s Torah in the first place?

The Official Holiday Of Jewish History

Of all the Jewish holidays, I would say Sukkos is far and away the least appreciated.

Why We Need To Act Like Angels

In the recent Gaza war and its aftermath, we saw a totally illogical reaction from the world.

A Positive Verdict This Rosh Hashanah

Rav Shlomo Wolbe states that every member of Klal Yisrael is dependent on the entire nation just as a leaf depends on the tree from which it grows.

Gaza Summer: The World Against Israel

Rather than serving as a deterrent against terrorist attacks, Israel’s military strength and capabilities are instead looked at as an unfair advantage in the asymmetrical war in which it finds itself.

Charles Krauthammer: ‘America Always Comes Back’

You’re not going to change public opinion. The media are so biased you can’t get your story through. But what counts is America.

Visiting Israel 55 Years — And Still Counting

Although I was not a Zionist, like most others I knew in Agudath Israel in which I was active, I was zionistic.

All The ‘News’ That’s Fit To Castigate Israel

Times reporter Anne Barnard reported (7/15) that Israel was to blame (so her Palestinian sources asserted) for its continued “occupation” of Gaza – which, Barnard failed to note, ended nearly a decade ago.

John Bolton: ‘We Must Protect Our Interests And Allies’

I understand how two governments can negotiate a ceasefire, but terrorists by definition are not playing by the same rules as you are.

For breaking his oath of allegiance, Tzidkiyahu was forced to witness the death of his sons before he himself was blinded and exiled to Babylon.

Dark Or Light?

Our rabbis told us it’s going to be very difficult before Mashiach comes. Should we fool ourselves?

What defines kana’ut these days? Throwing rocks at passing cars on Shabbos? Burning an Israeli flag on Yom Ha’Atzmaut?
