A Lesson From Israel In Higher Education

Learning to be flexible is also imperative.

Worst Of Times

How many millions of dollars does our community flush into opulent semachos every year?

Is The Real Jewish Year 5765 – Or 5931?

Rabbi Schwab's fallback position (in case we were wrong) seems to be the justification that many religious Jews use for accepting the secular date.

Animals Have No ‘Rights’

The Torah distinguishes man from the animals explicitly stating that only man was created in the Divine image and that man was given dominion over the animals (Bereshis 1:26.).

The Un-Greening Of Tu-b’Shvat

Almost everything that most people "know" about Tu-b'Shvat is totally wrong and completely false.

Somebody Else’s Agenda

Does that mean Jewish and other religious groups that support charities that are at least partly subsidized by the government have an obligation to oppose tax cuts?

"Paper Clips," a documentary filmed over two years, is the important story of an educational initiative, begun in October 1998, that evolved into something greater and unexpected when a student in the Holocaust course at Whitwell asked the question that we might all ask: "What is six million? I've never seen that before."

Three Ballplayers And Their Armbands

Remember, Major League Baseball used a different playoff format in the early 1970's: in each of the two leagues the winner of the West Division would meet the winner of the East Division in a best 3 of 5 game series to determine which team would represent its league in the World Series

Israel’s Single-Issue Party

Some are dumbfounded that Ariel Sharon and the Likud are bringing Labor into the government to form a national unity coalition. Some cannot believe their eyes and ears and noses.

Time In A Bottle: RIETS, Circa 1928

The earliest issue that the YU Library has is from 1935-36. The other issues from the Twenties and early Thirties may well be lost. Still, from these issues one can get insight into the thoughts of the students.
