2 Sivan 5772 – May 23, 2012
Israel Antiquities Authority and the Ir David Foundation announced that a clay seal was discovered bearing the name of the city of Bethlehem, evidence that the city existed during the period of the First Temple in Jerusalem. The find coincides with the upcoming holiday of Shavuot, during which time Jews from around the world focus on the story of the biblical figure Ruth, set in the city of Bethlehem.

Hugo Stiglitz VS the Canaanites

17 Iyyar 5772 – May 9, 2012
My considerable experience with bad people is: showing weakness to them never, ever works. Not ever. Never. As evidenced by the entire arc of human, and Jewish, history.

Golden Haggadah: A Unique Methodology

24 Nisan 5772 – April 16, 2012
The Golden Haggadah was created in Catalonia, Spain sometime around 1320. So named because all the illustrations are placed against a patterned gold-leaf background, it is a ritual object of incredible luxury and expense. In light of Marc Michael Epstein’s analysis found in his recent book The Medieval Haggadah, this tiny masterpiece of Jewish art easily ranks among other towering works of complex narration including Giotto’s Scrovegni Chapel in Padua and Michelangelo’s Sistine ceiling in Rome.

Yori’s News Picks from All Over, Tue. 2/28/12

5 Adar 5772 – February 28, 2012
So, what have the children of Jacob and the people who hate them been up to over the past 24 hours? What can I say, it's a violent planet. But even in a violent blue-green ball like ours, some stories still get our goat.

MK Hatovely Addresses Miami Beach Audience

4 Tevet 5772 – December 29, 2011
MK Tzipi Hatovely addressed a Chabad “Lunch and Learn” event on December 14 in Miami Beach.

Chanukah – Stepping Up To The Plate

27 Kislev 5772 – December 22, 2011
As Jewish festivals go, Chanukah is one of our favorites – it is quite “user-friendly.” We get a rare green light to travel and cook with no restrictions. We can drive back and forth (no need for our hosts to find sleeping accommodations) and feast with family and friends as we gleefully celebrate the miracle of a rag-tag band of heroes beating the odds. We rejoice over the improbable reality that a few overcame the many; of a bit of burning oil lasting way beyond its “shelf-life.”

It’s All in Your Head

15 Kislev 5772 – December 11, 2011
I began driving on the roads slowly, with my windows open and an Israeli flag flying proudly from my car. I was the victim of far fewer rock attacks than my neighbors, who would fearfully speed through the Arab villages.

Was Jacob Really An Ish Tam?

4 Kislev 5772 – November 30, 2011
What kind of man was Jacob? This is the question that cries out to us in episode after episode of his life.

An Honorable Failure

28 Heshvan 5772 – November 24, 2011
Even before they were born, Jacob and Esau struggled in the womb. They were destined, it seems, to be eternal adversaries. Not only were they different in character and appearance, they also held different places in their parents’ affections.

Shapiro’s Midrash

16 Heshvan 5772 – November 12, 2011
The midrashic world is a dangerous place to inhabit. It delves into our sacred texts to fathom their deeper meanings, solve vexing textual and conceptual problems and, finally, make sense of the holy words in contemporary terms. Midrash is passionate and deeply creative, like the current midrashic paintings of Brian Shapiro.

Bilhah Abigail Franks: Early American Jewish Matriarch

7 Tishri 5772 – October 5, 2011
In general, little is known about Jewish women who resided in America during the 17th, 18th and 19th centuries. Two exceptions are Rebecca Machado Phillips[i] and Rebecca Gratz[ii]. Another is Bilhah Abigail (Levy) Franks.

Caring For Bubbie – A Privilege

27 Sivan 5771 – June 29, 2011
Dear Rebbetzin Jungreis: My mother lives with me and needs a great deal of attention, as do my four children. It seems as if everyone is pulling at me at once, and I don't know in which direction to turn first. All this stress has definitely affected my mental and physical health. I suffer from backaches and stomach trouble and lack the patience necessary to be a good wife and mother.

As City Bungles Snow Cleanup, Communal Organizations Fill Void

23 Tevet 5771 – December 30, 2010
The city that never sleeps was brought to a virtual standstill this week as a blizzard dumped nearly two feet of snow on the New York metropolitan area - and countless miles of streets remained unplowed and all but impassable several days after the flakes stopped falling.

The Portuguese-Jewish Cemetery In Ouderkerk aan de Amstel

1 Tevet 5771 – December 8, 2010
There is something profound and soothing in the ancient Jewish practice of using the euphemism beit chaim, "house of life," to refer to a cemetery. It is as if the rabbis did not even want to coin the phrase beit mavet, "house of death," for fear of inviting the evil eye.

Jacob da Silva Solis – Advocate For Orthodox Judaism

24 Av 5770 – August 4, 2010
Jacob da Silva Solis was born into London's Sephardic community on August 4, 1780. He referred to himself as Jacob S. Silva. Arriving in America on October 25, 1803, Jacob almost immediately affiliated with New York's Spanish-Portuguese Synagogue (Shearith Israel). On April 24, 1811, he married Charity Hays, daughter of a Westchester County farmer. They had seven children, the eldest born in 1813 and the youngest in 1827.

Yiddish Theater Is Alive and Well (at Least in Chicago), But...

4 Tammuz 5770 – June 16, 2010
Trying to summarize the plot of "Jacob and Jack," currently in its world premier at Victory Gardens in Chicago, is a bit like, well, trying to understand a Yiddish play if you don't speak Yiddish. The viewer quickly gets the sense that something really interesting is happening in the play's myriad flashbacks - which are simultaneously redundant and singular - but even after skimming the Jacob and Jack script, I'm still having trouble keeping the narrative and chronology straight.
