Some Lessons From The War With Hamas

Anti-Semitism in Chicago School

if children on the brink of high school don’t understand that evil is at the core of the Holocaust, then what is the point of an education system that prides itself on tolerance and diversity?

Road Map 2018: A View From The Future

The president has declared over and over that Israel has nothing to fear but fear itself.

Would A President Lieberman Be Good For The Jews?

Basically, what happened was that while everyone thought Lieberman would make Al Gore and the Clintonite Democrats kosher, it was Gore and the Dems who were making Lieberman non-kosher.

HaMoked: A New Israel Fund Grantee Defending Those who Celebrate Israeli Deaths

HaMoked "claims" to work for "enforcement of standards and values of international human rights...”

A Decade Of Prayer For The U.S. Military

While thousands of U.S. soldiers recently returned home from the Middle East, their redeployment to the area may be imminent due to the ongoing developments on the Iranian nuclear front.

What A Difference 66 Years Can Make

A friend of mine likes to say the High Holiday season is for pulpit rabbis what the tax season is for accountants. Well, my “tax season” was a bit busier than usual this year. Just days before Rosh Hashanah, I was privileged to be part of the Orthodox Union’s Leadership Mission to Washington, which took place September 14-15.

The Sorrow And Self Pity Of Jon Stewart At The Toronto Festival

Jon Stewart has opted, voluntarily and without pressures, out of the Jewish timeline. I suspect the bitterness in Stewart’s note is related to that decision.

Truth or Dare?!

Many questions, all with thee same, single answer

Hollywood Types Find Captain America Too American

In March 1941 - nine months before the attack on Pearl Harbor impelled America to enter the Second World War - one colorful American hero already had joined the battle: Captain America.

Israel – Fall Guy Unto The Nations?

Let's not be fooled. The opening weeks of the United Nations General Assembly feature numerous side meetings between Jewish organizations and dozens of visiting dignitaries. Many of the Europeans, and possibly some Arab delegates as well, will be expressing sympathy if not encouragement for Israel's potential need to attack Iran's nuclear facilities.

Against the Current

Only recently, in his very last days, did Rabbi Ya’akov and his father Rabbi Ovadia Yosef become closer.

Obama Plays The Philip Roth Card

Recently, the part-time occupation of the part-time Jews in major media outlets has been to tackle Barack Obama’s Jewish problem head on, in the same way a major corporation tackles the revelation that its product is fatally toxic to babies – by a shaking of heads, some weak smiles, and an assurance to the public that it’s all in our heads.

Equal Earthquakes, Unequal Results

Of the twenty, only three have taken place in nations where Christianity has had a profound influence.

Brandeis’s Dishonor Diaries

At Brandeis, much of what counts as Western civilization got cold feet and won’t stand with Hirsi Ali.

A Time To Scream

I condemn Bibi for his mishandling of the war because Am Yisoel and Eretz Yisroel are in danger.

The Race To Vilify Israel

It's remarkable that with all the strife and conflict emanating from every corner of the globe, Israel is the country that perpetually dominates the headlines. With Iran thumbing its nose at the international community with the threat of nuclear proliferation, North Korea launching a torpedo attack and sinking a ship from South Korea, and car bombs killing countless civilians in Baghdad on an ongoing basis, why is it that Israel is the hot topic of conversation - and condemnation - throughout the world?

Go East

Muslims of the Far East see the Arab jihadis of the Middle East in much the same way that non-Orthodox Jews view Charedim.

Handwriting Analysis Has Jewish Roots, Says Therapist

Reintroducing graphology (handwriting analysis) to the clinical mainstream.

Our Weimar Republic

In the last years of Weimar Germany, President Hindenburg began ruling Germany by emergency decree.

Jewish Funds for Justice (JFSJ), the George Soros-funded activist group that recently made headlines for its high-profile war against Fox News host Glenn Beck, has received over $1 million from the UJA-Federation of New York since 2008.

Anti-Semitism With A Human Face

There is no question in my mind that so-called anti-Zionism serves as a fig leaf for Jew-hatred. There is no other explanation. I know of no other country whose legitimacy is as relentlessly questioned and undermined as is Israel’s. You would think that those who espouse the love of human rights and rejection of violence and government oppression would attack, with proper fury, countries like Congo, Sudan, Jordan, Somalia, Sri Lanka, Pakistan, Cuba, Libya, Dubai, Iran, Syria, Saudi Arabia, Yemen, Venezuela, and of course the most repressive country on the planet, North Korea.

The War Israel Chose To Lose

It was a war Israel was more afraid of winning than of losing.

On Racism, Its Costs And Its Causes

It doesn’t take very much to lose a neshamah. The young woman was witty, charming, frum, and a Harvard Law School graduate. She was also black, and lived in an Orthodox neighborhood. One Purim, she was treated in a neighborhood shul to the sight of a young mother with a few children in tow. As her Purim get-up, the mother had chosen to adorn herself and her kids with blackface and thick lips. The connection to Purim was not clear.
