The Best Thing JFK Ever Did For Israel

26 Heshvan 5771 – November 3, 2010
I have written about John F.

Dust Settles on Bootlickers Too

27 Tevet 5770 – January 13, 2010
I stood on the dusty road leading to one of the innumerable resting places of the pious people of Israel. Having said my prayers, though never enough, I waited somberly for a taxi to appear.

Title: Real Jews; Secular Versus Ultra-Orthodox And The Struggle For Jewish Identity In Israel

26 Tammuz 5763 – July 26, 2003
