The United States has a long history of terrible voter turnout. It is not that people are apathetic about the outcomes of elections; they just realize that their votes do not matter.
Of course the very texts of the scrolls confirm a fundamental historical Jewish connection to the land.
Whenever I see people, of whatever religion or background, who are joyfully coming together after a long separation, I feel spellbound, and I must stand by and witness that pure innocent joy as long as I can.
This election revealed that there are deep divisions within the American electorate. Some of these divisions are reasonable and others are divisions across impermissible lines. The nation must heal.
J Street's mission has been to bring about creation of a Palestinian state next to Israel. Israelis believe it would be a brutal totalitarian state, the kind that often invades neighboring countries.
As Clinton and Obama trash “deplorable” Trump supporters, they should consider their own tainted houses, in which some of the world's worst deplorables gave them direct financial/political support
No matter your presidential preference Comey’s “never mind” letter to Congress about the discovery of more emails on Weiner’s computer casts doubt on his judgment and the probity of the investigation
There is such beauty in Orthodoxy, I feel my life has been incredibly enriched.
Liberals paint all white men in a monolithic camp, even though they are actually the only demographic that doesn’t have a knee-jerk reaction to vote in a simplified and unified manner.

Dems miss the point completely: "The target is not Hillary Clinton. It’s us. The only reason the whole email flap has legs is because the candidate is female. Can you imagine this happening to a man?”
Which candidate will be good for Israel, Trump or Clinton? Any president who meets an Israeli leadership that is good for Israel will also be good for Israel.
Despite claiming that he “has Israel’s back,”one should not underestimate Obama’s determination to punish Israel before he retires.
Imagine if the US named a school after a terrorist? Unthinkable, but the PA did and insisted on making a big public show of the fact that it is naming a school after a murderer of Americans.
Open Orthodoxy is a wolf in sheep’s clothing, appealing to unknowing Jewish communities that seek a meaningful and genuine Orthodox religious experience.
