Home Sweet Home?

I believe that the up-and-coming generations will not live in the grand single-family homes many of them grew up in.

Learning The Basics

Even a kindergarten student can understand how the pennies collectively put in the pushka can add to real money that can help a kallah buy linens or feed a family for a week.

Shavuot: A Reminder That We Were All There

Boaz obviously finds it necessary to reassure Rut that no one will hassle or bully her while she is gleaning wheat, and twice he admonishes his field hands not to rebuke or shame her and make her feel threatened in any way.

I can’t say for sure if my idea would work, but to me it makes sense to fill the plane back to front with the window passengers getting to their seats first, followed by the middle-seaters.

They werew great girls and were looking for that "winning" dish.

Purim Musings

"Even when a sharpened sword is placed on your neck, do not give up on Divine Mercy."

The fact is there are so many second-time singles in heimische communities and the numbers sadly are growing each year – to such a degree that several organizations have sprung up to provide networking opportunities and social support.

A Hairy Situation

Why would it be more “tznuisdik” for me to go to a Shabbat meal in a sheitel when my host thought my own hair was one?

Mindful Praying

Prayers of thanks make us focus on the reality that we do have it much better than we think we do.

Being Mindful

As visible Jews, we have to be vigilant and very mindful of our actions.

Under The Influence?

Young people tend to be too naive and idealistic to fully fathom the implications of their actions.

Making Your Life Matter

Perhaps we need to review, as Jews, what defines success.

Murder By Words

What I call verbal terrorism is tragically not rare at all.

A Tale Of Two Tickets

How efficient to kill two birds with one stone – or booking. Actually three birds, since I invited a man I had commiserated with while waiting my turn to join me.

Super Men

There are fathers who bravely step up to the plate and fill in the maternal vacuum with their love and devotion.

Times have changed and divorced people have sadly gone from being singularities to almost a sub-community.

Misguided Advice

The role of the rav has expanded to include situations that have nothing to do with halacha.

One Word At A Time

Parents should be quick to say something positive to a child even as they chide him or her for bad behavior.

Chanukah: Linking The Past With The Present

Is the Torah offering nechama by subtly hinting that death brings reunion with loved ones who preceded you?

Chanukah: When Good Prevailed

Was it possible that these butchers of Jewish children had been living the "good life" all these years?

Getting To Know You

Divorce from a vindictive, cruel spouse can be a lifelong nightmare when there are offspring.

Life Support

I believe that each person is half a soul and marriage reunites the two.

Politically Correct Krimkeit

The Presbyterian Church USA voted to divest from three companies that do business with Israel.
