Woe to us that we have to be put to death like common heathen and murderers!
The world sees the hand of God through us, and does not like it.
“I realized early on how really vulnerable Jews felt around the world,” you said.
Some educators today believe that Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder falls into an executive function category.
It’s ironic that the reality of death is often the greatest force steering the affirmation of life.
The theme of the event was “Together Let us Rebuild our Holy Beis HaMikdash on Tisha B’Av.”
Chaya Aydel Seminary has already established a close connection with France’s Jewish community.
All attendees left with fervent wishes for a swift and lasting peace in Israel.
Is God apologizing for taking away my Father? Is God telling me that He is sorry?
I understand how two governments can negotiate a ceasefire, but terrorists by definition are not playing by the same rules as you are.
Though the school district eventually pulled the assignment after coming under pressure, the fact that an American school would ask its students to debate whether the Holocaust was “merely a political scheme created to influence public emotion and gain” is both astounding and frightening.
It is not the role of schools or government to make people feel good about themselves. Self-esteem comes with productivity, not in the absence of it.
Despite the exodus thousands of years ago and our break from the ghettos hundreds of years ago, the slave mentality follows us like a long shadow.
While Brooklyn College is famed for its plethora of Jewish professors and students, it is not a Jewish institution. The 92nd Street Y is. According to its own mission and history statement, it’s “a proudly Jewish institution since its inception.”
In a recent tirade on a public radio station in Albany, Governor Cuomo lambasted New York conservatives in one broad stroke. While lashing out against New Yorkers who oppose his SAFE Act, a draconian gun-control bill rammed through the New York legislature soon after the Newtown massacre, Cuomo targeted all Republicans and conservatives as the enemy.
Proud as I am of my daughter’s enthusiasm and her proclivity for outreach, I somehow can’t shake a niggling regret that it had to be in Germany. As the daughter of a Hungarian mother who escaped deportation by running with her family from the Nazis and the daughter-in-law of a Dutch Jewish man whose parents were shot by the Nazis and who was liberated from Bergen Belsen at the age of 12, I am one generation closer to the Holocaust than my daughter. And one degree closer to the idea of shunning anything and everything German.
