Join Meir Panim’s campaign to “light up” Chanukah for families in need.
I see the same signs that this might happen again, though they won’t try the same methods. I would hope we’ve learned from 9/11 and that we’re better trained and prepared to spot the warning signs of another possible terrorist attack.
It could happen again. Al Qaeda is always planning attacks on U.S. soil and abroad. We have to fear another attack because the terrorists will never give up. I’m sure the CIA and FBI know more than we do about imminent attacks but don’t reveal it to the public. Another attack is definitely possible.
I fear it can happen again. I wonder if our government is taking the threat seriously. It is so easy to sneak weapons into airports and especially subways, which is why I don’t understand why people complain about heightened security. You never know when terror can strike; we have to always be on alert.
I’m not worried about a possible attack. Yes, it could happen again, and I hope we’ve learned from six years ago, but I feel you have to put all your faith in Hashem that He will take care of us. There is no sense in worrying; whatever Hashem wants to happen, will happen. We all need bitachon.

Today’s smiles are in the merit of my friend and I made a conscious effort to smile throughout the day.
When someone with a fixed mindset has a negative interaction with a friend or loved one, he or she immediately projects that rejection onto him or herself saying: “I’m unlovable.”
How many potential shidduchim are not coming about because we, the mothers, are not allowing them to go through?
Is the Torah offering nechama by subtly hinting that death brings reunion with loved ones who preceded you?
She approached Holofernes and, with a sword concealed under her robe, severed his head.
Here are examples of games that need to be played by more than one person and an added bonus: they’re all Shabbos-friendly.

Wouldn’t it be great if you had a chavrusa working with you, guiding and helping you in your work environment?
The Jewish Press recently sat down with Chaya Lipschutz, a Brooklyn woman who saved the life of a stranger.
In the past, people used to turn to coffee or orange juice to get through a midday slump, but today, many are turning to power and energy drinks for a quicker and longer-lasting jolt. The power drink industry is booming with projected sales of $9 billion and no sign of slowing down anytime soon.
Every week nearly three million viewers tune into the Bravo cable channel to watch the hit reality franchise “The Real Housewives” – several shows that follow the lives of affluent housewives and professional women residing in several American metropolitan areas (“The Real Housewives of New York,” “The Real Housewives of Los Angeles,” of Miami, of Atlanta, etc.).
Not too many Jewish World War II survivors from Germany can say that they had the distinction of being both interned in a concentration camp and liberating the captives in that same camp. Erwin Weinberg did just that.
Recently I had the opportunity to spend some times with Bernard (Bernie) Walz and get a glimpse of his war experiences.
As I approached the home of Irving and Miriam Borenstein in the Mill Basin section of Brooklyn, two things became clear: the pride they feel at being Jewish and their joy at living in America. On their front lawn are large American and Israeli flags with a plaque in front which reads:
Never forget the six million murdered in the Holocaust and the three thousand murdered on 9/11.
May G-d remember them for the good with the other righteous of the world.
