The Temple Mount Sifting Project has turned the Wakf’s criminal dump of the most sensitive and valuable archaeological dirt on the globe – a national disgrace – into a national treasure. Funding the project is the least the government can do as penance for its long-standing malfeasance in countering Palestinian-Islamic aggression against Jewish history in Jerusalem and Israeli sovereignty on the Temple Mount.
Rebelling against Sharia is, sadly, for the Muslim woman, unthinkable. How can a healthy and normal feminist movement develop under an Islamic legal system that can flog, stone and behead women?

UNESCO resolutions are a catalyst for Palestinian terrorism against Israelis. Yet they are more than that: they also make the prospect of peace even more distant.
it is impossible to envisage Trump’s representatives making any progress in bringing peace to Israel. Kushner has even recently conceded that he feared that a realistic solution to the impasse at present could well be impossible.
For rabbinic groups to place Trump in what amounts to the Orthodox custom of cherem (shunning) is to assert that their synagogues are part of a political movement. It is nothing less than a declaration of war on a sitting president
The linking of unrelated "victimizations," reflects a broader trend in hard-left politics. Increasingly, radical activists demand that the demonization of "Zionists" be featured in the package of causes that must to be embraced by anyone claiming the label of "progressive."
Yes, Alisa’s education at a religious Day School was a paradigm shift for her mother and me and not everything was easy. Many times over the years I thought, “What have we gotten ourselves into?” But the rewards are many.
They’re everywhere. Literally everywhere with 4,000 locations spanning big cities, small towns, and suburbs throughout the US and in more than 60 countries around the world. Which multi-national is it?
This Friday, Elul 3, marks the 82nd yahrzeit of one of the 20th century's most important rabbis: HaRav Avraham Yitzchak HaCohen Kook.

If you start publishing pictures of Rebbetzin Kanievsky and Sarah Schenirer, who knows where you might end up!
Without the Balfour Declaration, and the British Mandate that was based on it, the name Palestine -- which had been forgotten in the region -- would have continued to be forgotten. Abbas should be saying "Thank You"
It's like a financial menu for rock throwers with different financial rewards for the severity of the crime. Your tax dollars at work.

Did Alana Shultz, the fired program director for the Spanish-Portuguese Synagogue suffer “adverse employment action”? Was she fired because she was 19 weeks pregnant at her wedding? What broader impact will this have?
