Newest Presidential Hopeful Sparks Debate Among Jewish Republicans

Ron Kampeas
Wednesday, August 17th, 2011

WASHINGTON – To some conservative Jews, Texas Gov. Rick Perry would make an excellent presidential candidate. He’s been to Israel more than any other candidate in the field and has said he loves it. And Perry creates jobs.

Our Mother’s Lessons

Rabbi Berel Wein
Wednesday, August 17th, 2011

All societies survive through the retention of customs and traditions. If ritual law, halacha and Torah observance are the keystones of Jewish existence, the customs and traditions of Israel are the chain that has kept Israel bound to the Torah and its laws and values. The rabbis called the customs and traditions of Israel “the lessons of your mother” – in contrast and at the same time complementing “the teachings and disciplines of your father.”

Summer Barbecues

Jamie Geller
Friday, August 12th, 2011

I love hosting backyard barbecues on sunny, cloudless days. Hubby at the grill. Me sitting poolside, sipping a pina colada as the kids splash around. After the party’s over, I’ll lounge a while with a novel.

After Fatah-Hamas Reconciliation The Endless Futility Of Israel’s ‘Peace Process’ (Conclusion)

Louis Rene Beres
Wednesday, August 10th, 2011

When on October 6, 1973, Egyptian and Syrian surprise attacks came dangerously close to jeopardizing Israel’s survival, it was because of a monumental intelligence failure. Similarly, on January 18, 1991, the scream of air-raid sirens could be heard in every corner of Israel. The Iraqi Scuds that slammed through Tel Aviv and Haifa neighborhoods had caught the country, in the words of a former Israeli intelligence chief, “with its pants down.” In the latter case, the only element that saved Israel was Iraq’s notably ineffectual warheads. If they had not been so ineffectual, Israel could have suffered profoundly, if not existentially.

Jerold S. Auerbach

If the UN should decide to recognize a “State of Palestine” in the biblical homeland of the Jewish people it would endorse a bizarre irony. Why?

Lieberman Scaled Political Heights, But Wants Shabbat To Be His Legacy

Ron Kampeas
Wednesday, August 10th, 2011

WASHINGTON – Call Joe Lieberman the unlikely evangelist. The Independent senator from Connecticut – and the best-known Orthodox Jew in American politics – is probably more cognizant than most of his Jewish congressional colleagues about rabbinical interdictions against encouraging non-Jews to mimic Jewish ritual.

The Politics Of Jewish Calendars

Menachem Wecker
Wednesday, August 10th, 2011

Although jokes abound about how punctual German Jews (Yekes) are, the concept of “Jewish Standard Time,” presumably mocking the non-Germanic segments of the Jewish population, has earned an entry in Urban Dictionary for “15 minutes late to everything” or “being late to an important event.”

The Destructive Phenomenon Of Kiddush Clubs

Rabbi Dr. Shmuly Yanklowitz
Wednesday, August 10th, 2011

A number of years ago I attended a “Kiddush Club” gathering in the basement of a synagogue. Right when the haftarah reading began, several older men snuck out the back and in a small dark room in the basement opened multiple bottles of alcohol. They drank excessively until the sermon was over and then, not so inconspicuously, returned back for the final portion of the Shabbat morning service.
