My Machberes

Satmar is one of the largest and leading chassidishe communities. What happens in Satmar is closely followed by the entire chassidishe world. No Satmar home is permitted to have Internet access. Children from homes with Internet access are not accepted into any Satmar school. Business Internet usage outside of the home must be filtered. Computer kiosks have been established where individuals can conduct private and business Internet usage 24/6 at minimal cost. Of course, the kiosks are filtered and computer screens are fully viewable and monitored at all times by appointed chassidishe managers.

Several pages in the Satmar weekly newspaper were recently devoted broadsides and articles promoting the rally. The Satmar Rebbe, however, did not call on his followers to attend the rally, nor did he prohibit participation.

Speculation focuses on the possibility that the Rebbe, seeking to conform to the conduct of the Divrei Yoel, founder of Satmar, chooses not to attend any event where foreign languages, i.e. English, might be spoken. Further, with yeshivish and Modern Orthodox participation, not everything discussed or formulated would be necessarily acceptable to the hashgacha of the Satmar community.

The mishloach manos of times gone by were sometimes simple and sometimes elaborate, but the main focus was on the preparation of the delicious food they contained.

One of the earliest special Purims we have on record was celebrated by the Jews of Granada and Shmuel HaNagid, the eleventh-century rav, poet, soldier and statesman, and one of the most influential Jews in Muslim Spain.

Jews, wake up! Stop educating the world and start educating yourselves.

The lessons conform to the sensitivities and needs of the Orthodox community…

The program took on special significance as it marked not only the first anniversary of Rebbetzin Kudan’s levayah but also the 27th yahrzeit of Rebbetzin Chaya Mushka Schneerson, a”h.

It captures the love of the Jewish soul as only Shlomo Hamelech could portray it – and as only Rabbi Miller could explain it.

Erudite and academic, drawing from ancient and modern sources, the book can be discussed at the Shabbos table as well as in kollel.

I’m here to sit next to you and help you through this Purim with three almost-too-easy mishloach manot ideas, all made with cost-conscious paper bags.

Kids want to be like their friends, and they want to give and get “normal” mishloach manos stocked with store-bought treats.

Whenever he did anything loving for me, I made a big deal about it.

“OMG, it’s so cute, you’re so cute, everything is so cute.”

A program that started with a handful of volunteers has grown exponentially to include students from a wider array of backgrounds.

Sometimes it’s hard to keep up with you.
