Three Females Among IDF Naval Officer Course Graduates

This week the 124th class of IDF Naval Officers, including three women, completed their training and were stationed on deck Israeli Navy vessels. While most IDF women serve only two years, these three officers have already served through the 36-month naval officers' course, as graduates will be required to sign up for at least an extra 16 months.

Too Much Symbolism? South Bronx Kids Visit Anne Frank Center Betwixt Freedom Tower and...

Is there such a thing as too many metaphors for the triumph of the human spirit packed into one sidewalk, especially such a crowded sidewalk near Wall Street (add that, too, to the mix, wrap in an American flag and call it a day?). But I'm probably being too cynical. It's actually a heart warming story.

Higher Education and Students with Disabilities

The college of yesteryear is not the college of today. Students with disabilities comprise the most rapidly growing student population on many campuses.

My Girls

My children were growing up and leaving the nest. Wanting to fill up my days with a challenging project, I heard through a friend that a local high school needed an English teacher.

Part III: First Day Of College

Within the span of just a few weeks, everything I knew about myself and all of my plans were destroyed. I was out of yeshiva, living at home and enrolled in classes at Northeastern Illinois University (NEIU).

An American Odyssey (Part 4)

“Remember the Alamo” was an important lesson in history class when I was a child and this was our first visit. It was a bit unimpressive but we enjoyed the History Channel movie about the Alamo in one of the rooms.

The Power of a Teacher

I had just picked up my son from his first day of school, when this beautiful woman smiled at me, then at my children, and continued on her way. A flood of wonderful memories washed over me; this woman had been my first grade teacher.

Listen To The Flames: As Told To Rayzel Reich By Her Grandmother, Mrs....

Miss Ida is our beloved teacher. Her brown hair is piled softly on her head. Her dress is of course old and worn, and she must...

Achim Academy Begins Gifted Program

Achim Academy’s Center for Education in South Florida is celebrating not only the beginning of another great new school year but also the start of a much anticipated gifted program. Students and administrators are excited to begin this new phase in the institution’s growth.

Blessings Of A “B”

It took me years to be able to say this (and a lot of painful bouts of insomnia, ulcers and ice cream cravings) but grades aren’t everything.

I’m The Man You Need In Washington

I am a businessman who has raised my family and lived my whole life in the Ninth Congressional District. I am not a professional politician, and I don't intend to become one. I don't use slogans, catch phrases or smoke and mirrors.

Title: The Family Guide to Touring Israel

The proof will be in your hands: some self-published books are remarkably wonderful. Lisa Aiken's The Family Guide to Touring Israel is a 382-page paperback with essentials even native Israelis need to know.

Going First Class

No one has ever said that truly fine wines are going to be found at bargain prices. Such wines, like luxury automobiles, designer handbags, custom-made jewelry and first-class international flights can, in fact, be quite dear. While it is true that most of us will rarely, if ever, buy Lamborghini automobiles and will most probably not approach Gucci to custom design a handbag for us, there is no valid reason to avoid, at least from time-to-time, buying the best wines available.

Corrupted Middle East Class At Brooklyn College

Brooklyn College's Middle East politics graduate course made headlines at the beginning of this semester. The newly hired adjunct professor, Kristofer Petersen-Overton, was fired and shortly thereafter rehired. Instead of employing responsible measures to ensure a balanced Middle East course, the college's administration chose an extreme and spineless response - one that is overwhelmingly obsessed with the Israeli-Palestinian conflict and specifies on the syllabus that it will "not include details about Iran, Turkey, Afghanistan or Pakistan."

Israel’s Greatest Threat

The world likes to believe that threats to Israel's security by its neighbors are the country's greatest concern. The narrative of two ancient peoples in one Holy Land fighting for their place in the world is a great story and leads to an uncanny number of headlines, the expenditure of a relatively large percentage of the UN's energy and resources, and more divisive discussions and actions than are devoted to other - much bloodier - conflicts, such as those in the Congo and Sudan.

Friends And Family Remember Moshe “Mo” Berkowitz

In his lifetime, he was a positive influence on so many, always inspiring others to be better while at the same time, working on his own character.
