More Than A Tour

As has often happened in the past, I am writing this article on an El Al plane en route to New York. At least once a year, we have a Hineni tour to Eretz Yisrael. They are always amazing and life transforming. Every day is unique and has its own flavor; every day is miraculous and spiritually elevating -this year's tour was no exception. My granddaughter, Shaindy Wolff Eisenberg, who is in charge of our Hineni activities in Israel, suggested we make this tour a "Navi event, that we trace the paths of our patriarchs and prophets.

Title: Annie’s Ghosts, A Journey into a Family Secret

New Book Highlights IDF’s Unsung Heroes

Due to Israel's small size, almost every soldier in the IDF returns home on a weekly or biweekly basis, enjoying the comfort and company of family. Approximately 5,000 soldiers, however, do not enjoy this benefit. These soldiers - labeled "lone soldiers" by the army - either come from dysfunctional homes (20 percent) or are volunteers from abroad (80 percent). In a recently published book, Lone Soldiers: Israel's Defenders from Around the World, veteran Jerusalem Post reporter Herb Keinon profiles 14 of these lone soldiers, who come from such diverse countries as Morocco, Australia, and India. He recently spoke with The Jewish Press.

With the best intentions, suggestions, ideas and criticism are offered, based on the non-experience of those with healthy families. Even when the good intentioned get a taste of the difficulties, it is sometimes not enough for them to then identify and understand what the family of the chronically ill must face on a constant basis.

‘Many Are The Thoughts Of Man…’

I couldn't wait to board the speedy Acela train to Washington, DC two weeks ago to hear an old friend of mine, constitutional legal wiz Floyd Abrams, argue before the Supreme Court. I had watched him twice before and was riveted each time. This case, involving the McCain-Feingold Campaign finance reform act, promised to be a landmark in First Amendment law.

It’s My Opinion: Power

Miami-Dade Mayor Carlos Alvarez was recently involved in a controversy causing outrage throughout the community.

A Torah Perspective on Educating Our Children About Sexuality (Part V)

In the past several articles we have discussed the importance of parents taking an active role in teaching their children Torah ideas about sexuality and modesty.
