A Life Of Triumph: Mrs. Irene Klass


“Well,” the Beis Halevi said, “if he’s asking whether he can drink milk for daled kosos, he obviously doesn’t have meat.”

It took somebody who was mavin davar m’toch davar – somebody who, given a small amount of information, can build on that and understand what the need is. And the question people will be asked after me’ah v’esrim is, Did you understand, did you put two and two together – or did you isolate and insulate yourself? The Klasses will be able to answer this final question with a resounding Yes.

Yes, Yes, Yes to every one of these questions.

Irene Klass, together with her husband Rav Sholom, lived a life of triumph. They go as a unit in front of the Kisei HaKavod and are able to say Yes to everything. It is a zechus for Klal Yisrael that we had such people.

Rabbi Moshe Plutchok is the rav of Congregation Shaarey Torah in Brooklyn and a rebbi at Yeshiva Derech Chaim.

Obama never hid his contempt for the Israeli government or the majority of Israel’s voters.

“This arbitrary ban is an ugly stain on our democracy, and it also undermines the rule of law.”

We take US “aid” for psychological reasons-if we have an allowance, that means we have a father.

ZIM Piraeus isn’t Israeli-owned or flagged, incidentally, it is Greek operated.

Foolish me, thinking the goals were the destruction of Hamas thereby giving peace a real chance.

The free-spirted lifestyle didn’t hold your interest; the needs of your people did.

And why would the U.S. align itself on these issues with Turkey and Qatar, longtime advocates of Hamas’s interests?

Several years ago the city concluded that the metzitzah b’peh procedure created unacceptable risks for newborns in terms of the transmission of neo-natal herpes through contact with a mohel carrying the herpes virus.

The world wars caused unimaginable anguish for the Jews but God also scripted a great glory for our people.

We were quite disappointed with many of the points the secretary-general offered in response.

Judging by history, every time Hamas rebuilds their infrastructure, they are stronger than before.
