Understanding America’s ‘Holiday Period’

As Americans, we Jews share with our fellow countrymen (more or less) certain portions of the annual "holiday period." Extending from the secular holidays of Thanksgiving to New Years, this span imposes on all the United States the breathless rhythm of a machine. Noisy and relentless, it is a rhythm associated in the popular imagination with enhanced reverence and spirituality, but in reality it produces a decidedly opposite effect.

Blaming Israel For Istanbul

7 Tevet 5764 – January 1, 2004
A disturbing media trend blames Israeli policy for the Islamist war on Western civilization. The recent coordinated bombings against British targets in Istanbul, occurring just days after the dual bombings of Istanbul synagogues, make the Islamic terrorist message brutally clear: their targets are the Jewish people and Western democratic civilization.

Funding Evil

Who’s Raising Our Children?

2 Tevet 5764 – December 26, 2003
The traditional Jewish model is one in which younger children, at least, are raised and nurtured primarily by their mothers.

A Time To Hate

Contradictions

Each time I get on an airplane, I am struck by contradictions. We are a species that can take tons of heavy metal and transform it into an instrument of travel, transporting millions of passengers at very high speeds from one place to another. At the same time, we are required to take off our shoes before being allowed to board the plane, not for reasons of civilized comfort, but rather to ensure that we are not about to destroy the aircraft.

Don’t Take Money From An Opinionated Ignoramus

25 Kislev 5764 – December 19, 2003
But as those in attendance soon discovered the problem with honoring such people is that there may be a good reason why they've never dipped into their fat wallets to help poor Jews or to defend the Jewish state: They don't really care very much about us.
