Truth or Dare?!

Many questions, all with thee same, single answer

Obama’s Pastor A Product Of Privilege, Not Poverty

The world now knows that for nearly 20 years, Senator Barack Obama has attended Chicago’s Trinity United Church and that his pastor was Rev. Jeremiah Wright. In his March 18 speech on race, Obama criticized some of Wright’s statements but also essentially excused and rationalized his sermons on the basis that many African-Americans growing up in past decades experienced prejudice, discrimination, lack of economic opportunity, etc.

Manifesto For Survival

In late November, mobs in Paris once again shouted "Death to the Jew" - the very chant that came to characterize the Dreyfus case. The Hapoel Tel Aviv soccer team had won its match with the Paris Saint-Germain team. An angry mob surrounded a French Jew named Yanniv Hazout and yelled "kill the Jew," "dirty Jew," "dirty Negro," with many raising their arms in Nazi salutes. A black French policeman rushed to Hazout's defense. The crowd threatened to kill them both. The officer fired his gun and killed one demonstrator and wounded another.

Bitter Tuesday

We would represent a mature adult section of society. Sneakers and socks flowing biblical garments and youngsters holding banners were unacceptable.

An Envelope From Texas

A year ago, the White House asked me to speak at a conference in Philadelphia. I was glad to learn that the president would be there, but I was surprised to hear him again mention Met Council's work in his remarks.

Our Bored President

My Husband And My Mother

A loving reflection by Naomi Klass Mauer, a devoted daughter and a loving wife, to her mother and husband who passed from this world-within hours of each other-7 years ago.

Guests Or Residents? Women In Our Shuls

A few weeks ago I was completing the silent amidah at the morning minyan I attend in my local shul. Suddenly, a cold breeze shot through the room. I headed back to the door of the bet midrash where we pray and saw that a young observant woman I know had propped the door slightly ajar in order to hear the repetition of the Shemoneh Esrei and the reading of the Torah.

White/Black Supremacists Aligning Against the Jews

Over the last decade, we've seen the convergence and alliance of Islamism with the far Left (and, with time, the not-so-far Left).  Today, there seems to be another supposedly "impossible" convergence underway:  We are witnessing the beginnings of an alliance between the radical Right (KKK, neo-Nazis, etc.) and the radical black Left (Black Panthers, Farrakhan, etc.)

Assessing the Islamic World’s Ho-Hum Response to Trump’s Jerusalem Declaration

Trump’s decision to recognize Jerusalem as Israel’s capital provoked dire warnings of imminent uproar--which never happened because the Islamic world is too mired in its own domestic problems to mobilize over Jerusalem.

The Disappearing Jews

There are 5.5 million Jews in America today and experts believe that in 20 years, that number will be 2.5 million – a loss of 3,000,000 Jews! The first thing we need to do is figure out a way to cure this epidemic

The Invitation’s In The Mail

The Orthodox Jewish wedding season commences each year after Lag B’Omer and again after Tisha B'Av. In the weeks prior to those dates we watch the mail for the wedding invitations we receive – and notice the ones we do not. Sometimes we receive invitations to weddings and cannot figure out why we were invited; other times we wonder why a friend or acquaintance has not invited us to a simcha.

What The Media Didn’t Tell Us About Dalia

The "Media" didn’t want us to know what a kind, giving, loving young woman Dalia was.

We Live in Beit Shemesh Too…

There's a LOT to know about the problem with the wild dogs and these crazy animal rights activists don't know the first thing about it!

Behind Our Masks

I was singing, dancing, jumping and, sweating. Just joy and happiness. One child on my shoulders after another. What happiness! And then, the little boy on my shoulders – he could not have been older than six – began to cry.

Jewish Meditation

Meditation is all the rage in cyberspace it seems and what’s more “it is keeping capitalism alive.”

Chayei Sarah with Sheikh Jabari

Gaza is Not the Key, Philadelphi Is

By removing this layer of Israeli protection, an "exponential increase" in the Gaza arsenal predictably followed, culminating in the Fajr-5 missiles that reached Tel Aviv this month.

Ed Koch, FDR, and the Holocaust

In a world of cynics and naysayers, where too many people almost instinctively assume the worst of their fellow citizens, our generation was fortunate to have Ed Koch.
