Many of our yeshivos have excellent secular studies departments. Some may have some way to go. But our yeshivos are not public schools, and I – among others – will fight for them to continue not to be.
Like thousands of other chassidic yeshiva parents, I’m tired of those who fail to respect the choices that we, and generations before us, have made.
The proposed transfer of significant parts of Area C to the control of the Palestinian Authority (PA) will be detrimental to Israel’s national interest, if only because these territories are almost completely devoid of any Palestinian population. As such, they afford not only a strong security grip but the possibility of extensive Jewish settlement without threatening Israel’s Jewish and democratic character.
“There are those who seek to extinguish the light that emanates from Zion. I promise you; it will not happen,” says Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu at the largest celebration of statehood to date.
There continues to be a lot of tension in Poland today in reaction to the new Holocaust law. The fact that there are Poles willing to openly condemn both the new law itself and anti-Semitism in Poland is a promising step
Your days of deciding the fate of the Jewish nation are over. How frustrating it must be, after all your zealous attempts to annihilate us, not to see your efforts come to fruition.
We are no longer a downtrodden people, whose decisions are made by a foreign nation. I have a Government of my own.
Today, France is the only country in the Western world where Jews are murdered simply for being Jews.
With Facebook, Google, and nations-Poland-reinventing history, it is essential we remember.
Nobody in the world has the right to criticize Israel’s defensive actions on the Gaza border, even if Israel had used significant force against the Hamas mobs – which it didn’t
A fringe element within the Jewish community uses language and imagery stolen from classical anti-Semitic tropes, sides publicly with declared enemies of the Jewish people, and clumsily but intentionally wields their Judaism as a weapon against the rest of us.
My greatest fear is that the U.S. airstrikes will be the final act in America’s involvement in Syria.
Results from a survey in 23 countries showed the strangest results when it came to Israel.
The raid on President Trump's lawyer dramatically demonstrates the need for new legislation to assure that no FBI agents or US attorneys ever get to read privileged communications between a lawyer and a client, a doctor and a patient, a priest and penitent, or a husband and a wife.
The real test of Hamas’s March of Return campaign in Gaza lies in its ability to mobilize mass violence in Jerusalem, Ramallah, Bethlehem, Hebron, and other parts of the West Bank. So far, most of the Arab inhabitants of those areas are content to watch the events on their screens rather than in the streets.
“Wouldn't you be devastated if your kid were breaking Shabbos?” I asked. He just smiled and replied, “When did you become so frum?”

The nicest house in the world's most dangerous neighborhood is having proverbial rocks--and Molotov cocktails--hurled at it by a hypocritical world.
The “March of Return” symbolizes Hamas refusal to acknowledge defeat and until such time that the Arabs accept Israel's existence as fact, true peace and resolution to the conflict will be impossible.
The budgeting of millions to pay terrorists and their families incentivizes terror. At a time when the US, with bipartisan legislation, signaled it would not tolerate the encouragement of terror, Abbas’s and the PA’s defiance is astounding.
Citizens of Gaza have plenty to protest about--just not Israel. Their complaints start with misrule by Hamas
Many descendants of Jews are knocking on Israel's door, asking to be allowed in. All we need do is turn the knob, pry open the entrance, and they will come. It is time to close the historical circle and restore "lost Jews" to our people.
The international community that demanded Israel retreat from Gaza, now attacks Israel for defending its border against Hamas, whose assault on Israel they qualify as “freedom of expression.”
