Join Meir Panim’s campaign to “light up” Chanukah for families in need.
I felt that somehow, if they only knew Jews better, they would see that we are not “dogs” and they would love us.
Only after becoming observant many years later did my views change. I learned that Jews have a long history of being hated; that no matter how “nice” we are there will always be those who hate us for our values and our God.
If the U.S. army does not go through a similar learning process soon, I’m afraid our soldiers, may God forbid, experience more Fort Hood disasters.
America’s leadership must realize that radical Islam is an implacable foe based on a deep-rooted and religious ideology – and that there are Muslims who maintain these beliefs and mosques that preach them right here on American soil. Hasan actually attended one of them, in 2001 – the Dar al-Hijrah mosque in Great Falls, Virginia, where two of the September 11 terrorists also prayed.
America’s leadership, especially its military, must strip itself of political correctness and educate itself about radical Islam. It must then educate its soldiers so that they are not left as unprotected as sitting ducks on a Texas army base. Neglecting to do this is tantamount to criminal negligence.

“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.
Hellenism captured the imagination and hearts not only of the Greeks but of the majority of Jews in ancient Judea.
The motto “In God We Trust” is emblazoned on our currency and in courtrooms across America. And yet it seems we’re trusting less and less in God these days. With each passing year, secularists and sophisticated intellectuals manage to kick Him out just a little more from the public square.
Two weeks ago I found myself at the International Conference of Chabad Shluchos in Crown Heights running a program together with my friend Rivka Kotlarsky for 120 Guests of Shluchos – many of them not yet especially observant.
“If you put Google, Apple, and Microsoft together, it still doesn’t compare to the miracles of Jewish renaissance I have witnessed in this country,” I said to two reporters from The New York Times and Moscow Times.
I went to a sentencing several weeks ago – my first ever. The man being sentenced, William Hill, was convicted by a jury of brutally beating Jacob Gerstle, an 81-year-old member of my community in Washington Heights, in 2006.
Anger – no, fury – was my first reaction to news of the rampage at Fort Hood last week. Thirteen dead and thirty wounded is tragic enough. But how could the alleged murderer, Maj. Nidal Malik Hasan, have gone undetected on an American military base for so long?
I couldn’t wait to board the speedy Acela train to Washington, DC two weeks ago to hear an old friend of mine, constitutional legal wiz Floyd Abrams, argue before the Supreme Court. I had watched him twice before and was riveted each time. This case, involving the McCain-Feingold Campaign finance reform act, promised to be a landmark in First Amendment law. To watch top-notch lawyers spar swords with some of the best legal minds in the country is quite an experience and I couldn’t wait to feel that intellectual thrill once again.
