Rav Nechuniah was a modest and exceedingly honest person who did good and kind things at every opportunity, without seeking rewards and honor for those deeds.
The wind whistled outside my house, as the lights flickered but thankfully didn’t turn completely off. Being in this situation reminded me of the terrible week and a half in late October when my family and community lost all electrical power due to Superstorm Sandy.
“Nechama Gitty Shapiro is leaving,” said the secretary, poking her head into the classroom. My classmates all turned towards me and whispered, “Where are you going?”
It is a rare season indeed when two major auction houses show not only resplendent offerings of Judaica, but also multiple examples of highly unusual and rare Jewish-themed fine art. That is indeed the case now both at Sotheby’s December 19th auction and the Bonhams recent December 10th auction.
The necessity of speaking up when you “have a hunch” applies even more when it comes to shidduchim. One little girl did just that – she said something – and I was fortunate enough to be in town for the very joyful, lively wedding that resulted from her speaking up.
Everything with my wife is an issue. If one of our young children spills something or accidentally breaks something, she screams uncontrollably.

A wake up call to action for the Jewish community.
Here’s another stunning thing Israelis have invented to make life on our planet better for those of us who could use help. If you’re choked with tears at this stunning example of human ingenuity, leave a comment. If you’re a blind person currently involved in an effort to disgrace Israel by boycotting its goods and […]
Alternative History or Alternative Reality is a sub-genre of science fiction dealing with worlds in which one or more historical events unfolded not the way it did in our real world. I had a glimpse of that when I looked at this picture from Thursday’s joint press conference of Israeli Foreign Minister Avigdor Lieberman and […]
His good deed is certainly not going unpunished.
Israel Beiteinu Party Secretary MK Faina Kirschenbaum said that this was a done deal.
The late Rabbi Shlomo Carlebach did not belong to any religious movement, but his daughter Neshama now belongs.
My first reaction to this story was: El Al has its own rabbi?
Hemant Mehta is arguing with Christians, but he’s making cogent points we could all benefit from. The essence of his litany is that Christians (he could have addressed Muslims as well) are driven by a need to spread their faith around the globe, whether through persuasion or, should the occasion call for it, by applying […]
