Expressing Ourselves Inside And Outside The Walls

2 Heshvan 5773 – October 17, 2012

“Let me be honest with you,” the rosh yeshiva began. It was not a good sign. I was sitting for a farher, an entrance interview, with the rosh yeshiva of a well-known yeshiva in Jerusalem, and it was about to go very badly. I was, to be fair, a very unusual applicant.

I Will Keep Dancing…

4 Iyyar 5772 – April 25, 2012
I’m learning to walk again. Every step is painful. I go with a walker.

18 Adar 5772 – March 12, 2012
The Jewish Congressman who became the darling of the left wing of the Democratic party but not so much with his district (he served only one term), who, in 2009, defined the Republican’s idea of health care plan as, "Don’t get sick, and if you do get sick, die quickly," may require some serious health care himself. Last Saturday he ran a red light with his car, smashed into a bus and injured two people.

Obamacare’s Bitter Pill For Israel

30 Nisan 5770 – April 14, 2010

An Immigrant’s Tale

10 Adar 5770 – February 24, 2010
A friend of mine came to this country from China back in the eighties. China had little opportunity for people like him he tells me, especially after Chairman Mao had destroyed the country.
