Can We Make Auschwitz A Little More Stylish?

7 Iyyar 5772 – April 29, 2012
American clothing retailer Urban Outfitters is in hot water for selling a yellow T-shirt with a patch over the breast pocket that looks like a designer's idea of how to improve that old fashioned yellow Star of David that Jews were forced to wear by the Nazis.

An Unforgettable Rosh Hashanah

15 Heshvan 5772 – November 12, 2011
Last Rosh Hashanah 5771, I walked with a heavy heart to the small synagogue in the hospital at Tel Hashomer. Two and a half months had passed since my son David’s terrible accident, and he was still unconscious. The doctors remained split. Some tried to explain that this type of injury did not leave room for optimism. The days, weeks and months that passed seemed to wither our hope.

Place Of Honor

I have a girlfriend I'll call Esti who works for a kiruv organization. During the summer semester, this organization offered an experiential history program. They taught a subject for a week, and then the next week toured the places they discussed in order to experience history firsthand.

Bloom’s Bittersweet Vision: Paintings by Lloyd Bloom

27 Sivan 5770 – June 9, 2010
Upon entering Lloyd Bloom's exhibition at the Chassidic Art Institute one is confronted by the sweet beautiful image of a lamb skipping through the air in a puffy cloud landscape. Right next to it is an image of a goat kid cuddled up in the lap of a young shepherd. Further down the wall we see paintings depicting a young man leining from the Torah, then women lighting Shabbos candles and finally a father and son at the seder table, all candidates to be the most emblematic scene of Jewish life imaginable.

Pieter Lastman’s David And Uriah Paintings

18 Sivan 5769 – June 10, 2009
In one of the most complex and controversial of biblical narratives, the book of 2 Samuel recounts an almost operatic moment in which Uriah the Hittite, husband of Batsheva, was instructed by King David to unknowingly carry his own death sentence to the Jewish general Yoav (Joab).
