Join Meir Panim’s campaign to “light up” Chanukah for families in need.
It is so real, so attainable. Just the way God has sustained us through all the years of Exile, so will He lead us to the Final Redemption, the day we will be free forever of the hatred of the nations.
Isn’t it time for us to usher in the era that is without death and suffering? Isn’t it time for, in the words of Lecha Dodi, “those who devoured you [to be] cast far off and [for] Your God [to] rejoice over you like a groom rejoicing over his bride”?
It is all in our hands. I am sure our Father in Heaven wants so much to give it to us. Let’s help Him and by our actions merit His eternal reward. At every red light let us study, and, when the light turns green, let us contemplate His Torah. Don’t we say it every day in the Shema? “Let these matters that I command you today be upon your heart . Teach them to your children and speak of them while you sit in your home and while you walk upon the way .”
Then indeed we will have “light and gladness and joy and honor.”
May we see it soon in our days.

“Mr. Prime Minister, declare a unilateral ceasefire! Remember, Blessed is the peacemaker!”
Hamas is continuing to prepare its next war against Israel instead of improving conditions in Gaza
The decision to not publicly light the Menorah in Sydney, epitomizes the eternal dilemma of Judaism and Jews in the Diaspora.
Am Yisrael is one family, filled with excruciating pain&sorrow for losing the 4 kedoshim of Har Nof
What is its message of the dreidel?” The complexity and hidden nature of history and miracles.
Police play down Arab terrorism as mere “violence” until the truth can no longer be hidden.
The 7 branches of the menorah represent the 7 pillars of secular wisdom, knowledge, and science.
Obama obtained NO verifiable commitments from Cuba it would desist from acts prejudicial to the US
No one would deny that the program subjected detainees to less than pleasant treatment, but the salient point is, for what purpose?
For the past six years President Obama has consistently deplored all Palestinian efforts to end-run negotiations in search of a UN-imposed agreement on Israel.
It’s not an admiration. It is simply a kind of journalist fascination. It stands out, it’s different from more traditional Orthodoxy.
For Am Yisrael, the sun’s movements are subservient to the purpose of our existence.
Our rabbis told us it’s going to be very difficult before Mashiach comes. Should we fool ourselves?
The unwarranted hatred among us that caused the destruction of the Second Temple clearly still plagues us.
At the end of the harvest, winter begins. The earth becomes cold and hard, nights are long, and the sun seems far away in the southern sky. The sap ceases to flow in the trees. But in this season of temporary “death” Hashem sends down harbingers of coming life in the form of tal u’matar livrachah – dew and rain for a blessing – upon the earth.
“Logically” speaking, after the millennia of hatred and destruction directed against us, there should not be one Jew in the world today who still keeps the Torah.
They were lining up for gas masks in Israel.
Apparently, at the very time of year we are supposed to be full of simcha, Hashem wants us to be aware of the possibility of danger. Indeed, during the Yom Tov of Sukkos, we read cataclysmic haftaras dealing with the ultimate war, the Milchemes Gog Umagog. Where does that war take place? In the Holy Land, of course, where the eyes of the world are always focused.
