No. I’ve done some research and I’ve come to the conclusion that the hype on global warming today is like the hype on eugenics years ago. This is the daas Torah of left-wing politics. They want us to focus on big industry issues and divert our attention from the real issues. This is just a ploy by the left wing.

Yes. I’m very much concerned. What’s going to happen years from now? I already see unnatural changes in the climate. We’ve had an unusually warm winter earlier on – I didn’t have to wear my winter coat in December, which is not normal. I don’t believe global warming is a political distraction. Global warming is a slow process. We may not see the effects immediately.
No. I’m concerned about the environment but this is all hype to promote an agenda of fear in politics. Al Gore’s documentary “An Inconvenient Truth” fabricated data to instill fear in the public and therefore promote left-wing politics. Global warming is used as a catalyst for the Left’s agenda. It takes the focus off anything else.
Yes. I recently saw a clever cartoon with a picture of a snowman melting and the caption read, “Where is Mr. Frosty?” I need to look more into the topic, though. For instance, I would like to see Al Gore’s documentary since many people have been recommending it. I don’t think the threat of global warming is an exaggeration.

As optimistic as Menachem Rosenberg is – and he said he is going to Uman – he’s sure that this year, most of the travelers will not tour other religious sites or places in Ukraine.
Three sets of three-day Yomim Tovim can seem overwhelming – especially when we are trying to stay healthy.
Is a missed opportunity to do a mitzvah considered a sin?
Everyone has a weakness. For some people it is the inability to walk past a sales rack without dropping a few hundred dollars. For others, it’s the inability to keep their house organized.
Not enjoying saying no, I often succumbed to requests viewing them as demands I couldn’t refuse.
His entire life was dedicated to Torah and he became a pivotal figure in the transmittal of the Oral Torah to the next generation.
When you don’t have anyone else to turn to… that’s when you’re tied to Hashem the closest.
While we all go to restaurants for a good meal, it is dessert, that final taste that lingers in your mouth, that is the crown jewel of any dining experience and Six Thirteen’s offerings did not disappoint.
Today, fifty years and six million (!) people later, Israel is truly a different world.
There will always be items that don’t freeze well – salads and some rice- or potato-based dishes – so you need to leave time to prepare or cook them closer to Yom Tov and ensure there is enough room in the refrigerator to store them.
In Uzbekistan, in the early twentieth century, it was the women who wore the pants.
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.
