Unity

Surely there is always a reason to hate someone, but unless it is a reason warranted by the Torah, it is deemed baseless, and further worsens our chance of redemption.

‘Torah Live’

Rabbi Dan Roth's very first day teaching in yeshiva did not at all go as planned. After learning in kollel for many years in some of the best yeshivos in Israel, Rabbi Roth got his first job teaching in a program for teens-at-risk. A short time before taking the job, he wrote a sefer on modern-day lessons gleaned from the teachings of Pirkei Avos. In the process of writing the book, he realized that he had a talent for making Torah concepts relevant and down-to-earth.

Menachem Av

Hashem wants us to realize that we are not in control of Har Habayis, and this should disturb us.

Losing Our Children (Part II)

My family and I had recently enjoyed an outing to the bowling alley, courtesy of our friend, the owner. Children of all ages enjoy this weatherproof sport, and even preschoolers can easily score strike after strike as bumpers support the heavy ball as it creeps its way towards the pins at the end of the lane.

Q & A: Learning Torah In Israel

QUESTION: My son is enrolled in one of the major yeshivot in Israel. Though he is learning very well, I am extremely tense at all times. My question is: In times of danger like today, is it proper to allow him to continue learning there? Would it not be possible for him to learn elsewhere with the same results?Name withheld by request

The Left Has Gone Too Far

It’s ironic that when we hear about Arab extremists attacking and killing Jewish settlers, there is quiet from these same left wingers.

Losing Our Children (Part III) Who Are They?

Kids today... that’s not the way we behaved when we were younger!! That is the mantra I hear repeated as parents bemoan the spoiled nature and lack of responsibility of today's children. The problem is - it is not a fair comparison.

Q & A: Al Achilat Matza (Part I)

QUESTION: I have noticed that when we eat the matza at the seder on Passover, we recite the blessing of Hamotzi lechem min ha'aretz, followed by Al achilat matza. Why don't we say Al achilat matza when we eat matza during the remainder of Passover?Moshe JakobowitzBrooklyn, NY

Divisive Perimeters

It is difficult to write about such a topic, but from an outsider’s perspective it seems that there are so many ongoing communal machlokesim today.

What Really Happened In Charlottesville

There has been very little media coverage of the actual events, and there are many unanswered questions.

Q & A: Hachana (Part IV)

QUESTION: Is it halachically permissible to pack on the Sabbath or Yom Tov for a trip to be taken on the next day?Moishe Halberstam, Esq.

The Iron Crucible of Egypt

Instead of commending this righteous individual for his proper ethical standards, he has been attacked by the left wing media!

Vayeira: The Binding of Isaac

God wanted to establish the principle that children are not the property of their parents.

Caring For Our Parents: A Child’s Hardest Job

They say that one mother can take care of five children, but five children cannot take care of one mother. One of the most challenging situations, and perhaps the most unnatural, is when children need to take care of aging or infirm parents. Why is this so difficult and why do so many of us fail at caring for our parents when they need us most?

The Meaning Of Israel

Herzl was dead within a year, but his prophetic vision established him as the Father of modern Zionism.

Rabbi Jonathan Sacks: The Fear Of Freedom

The episode of the spies has rightly puzzled commentators throughout the centuries. How could they have got it so wrong? The land, they said, was as Moses had promised. It was indeed “flowing with milk and honey.” But conquering it was impossible. “The people who live there are powerful, and the cities fortified and very large. We even saw descendants of the giant there … We can’t attack those people; they are stronger than we are … All the people we saw there are of great size. We saw the titans there … We seemed like grasshoppers in our own eyes, and so we seemed in theirs” (Numbers 13:28-33).

Pidyon Shevuyim

The following letter was sent in response to Pidyon Shevuyim: Redeeming The Agunah, a column by Cheryl Kupfer (12-21 On Our Own):

Shabbat, The Foundation Of Our Heritage

We think we have the power to make choices and to effect change in this world – that we are in control of our own destiny.

The Purpose Of Terror

Given the potential for kaparah, we must understand how to properly utilize this time of Bein Hametzarim, which begins in a month’s time.

Leadership in Genesis and in the Bible

Judah concedes he was wrong&feels regret; THAT is precisely what qualifies his house for leadership

Longing for Yerushalaim

Hashem created this world and placed man in it, so that he could take his physical part and elevate it using his spiritual part.

The Power of Kedusha

Hashem told Moshe that the miracle of the staffs would remove the complaint that Bnei Yisrael still had.

The Waters of the Lord

Today, we remain Hashem's nachal.

Hakarat Hatov (Part two)

One has only to look at the amount of discoveries in science and medicine, the arts and in education to appreciate the vital role that the Jews have played.
