22 Elul 5764 – September 8, 2004
We in Israel need Nefesh B'Nefesh. Every time this organization brings in another planeload of olim, the welcome is so uplifting, the arrival is so exciting, the emotional high is so stimulating, that several old-timers go to the airport ceremonies just to be reminded how important American and Canadian aliyah is.

The Abominable Izzy Stone

June 18 marked the fifteenth anniversary of the passing of I.F. Stone, who upon his death was eulogized by mainstream journalists for his supposed independence and iconoclasm and who still remains an iconic figure to many in the media.

Kerry, Kennedy And Isaiah

2 Elul 5764 – August 18, 2004
