Orthodox Groups Blast State Dept. Report On Religious Freedom

WASHINGTON - A State Department report on religious freedom is drawing sharp criticism from Orthodox Jewish groups over its portrayal of Israel.

Throwing Stones From Glass Houses

Note to Readers: Going against the grain of most of the Orthodox community, I've never been enamored of the Catskills – to put it mildly. "The mountains" give me the creeps; it's a deep-bred animosity that just won't go away. I'm a city boy through and through.

Administration Ripped For Honoring Outspoken Israel Critic

WASHINGTON - The White House is facing mounting criticism over its decision to give a prestigious award to the former United Nations official who presided over the infamous 2001 Durban conference and has a history of criticism of Israel.

How Community Expectations Influence Your Reality

Doubt is a very powerful force. It slowly erodes what we know to be true. It can undermine our self-confidence and even change our reality. Doubt comes from many sources and very often in the form of innocuous comments from friends and family.

Getting The Big Picture

As Bnei Yisroel passed through the land of Ya'azer and Gilad in the "Ever HaYarden" (land East of the Jordan River) they noticed that the land was very fertile and quite suitable for grazing animals.

Did She Cry Because Of You?

One of my favorite teachings from the Talmud is a marriage-related lesson.

Self-Image And Barking Dogs (Part II)

In my previous column I wrote about the importance of assigning minimal value to the utterances of those who make nasty, ego-wounding comments.

Overloaded

We have all experienced overload. It happens when our minds are just too full of worry, problems, or things that must be done now.

Stunted Souls

In this week's Dating Primer column, Rosie Einhorn and Sherry Zimmerman write about the destructive nature of frequent, often unjustified criticism directed towards children and some of the repercussions of what they feel is unintentional but nonetheless genuine verbal abuse.

Title: The Case For Israel

Presenting this subject from a positive point of view in The Jewish Press is akin to 'preaching to the choir,' but Prof. Dershowitz brings his many years of legal training and expertise - and a lifetime of involvement with the Zionist cause - to bear on the subject.

The Logic Of Rick Santorum

Pennsylvania Senator Rick Santorum's point about a pending Supreme Court case challenging state anti-sodomy laws seems hardly remarkable. The senator said: "If the Supreme Court says that you have the right to consensual [homosexual] sex within your home, then you have the right to bigamy, you have the right to polygamy, you have the right to incest, you have the right to adultery, you have the right to anything."

ADL Challenges Arab-American Indifference

This past week, the Anti Defamation League went public with a criticism of "mainline" Arab-American groups for failing to speak out against anti-Semitism and terrorist acts committedagainst Jews by Palestinians and other Arabs. The ADL point that such failure only tends tolegitimatize and ultimately to encourage such behavior is surely a valid one.

The Policy Of Restraint

Prime Minister Sharon is being roundly criticized in his own Likud Party by those who are disenchanted with his policy of "restraint." Indeed, it would now appear that former Prime Minister Netanyahu would win a vote for leadership of the Likud if it were held today. Plainly, there is much frustration with the continuing violence and the failure of Mr. Sharon to bring an end to it.

When All Else Fails, Blame The Jews

Bill Clinton doubtless thought that his long Op-Ed apologia on the Rich pardon in last Sunday's New York Times was just the tour de force needed to stanch the cascading criticism of his secretive eleventh-hour maneuver.
