Contrary to J Street and Media Claims, Former IDF Chief Halutz Is Hawkish on...

27 Elul 5772 – September 14, 2012
Publicly, J Street repeatedly states that Halutz is against the drawing of "red lines," that is, the line in the sand beyond which military action against Iran must be taken. There are commentators who crow that Halutz's opposition to red lines reveals a reluctance to use force against Iran, and that it is an explicit criticism of the Israeli prime minister. J Street President Jeremy Ben-Ami wrote: "Gen. Halutz has repeatedly said that … there is nothing to be gained from the public calls for deadlines and red lines." But Halutz, who is definitely against red lines, doesn't like them because he thinks they interfere with effective military strategies. Halutz says that Israel may even have to “go it alone.”

Israeli Rabbis Prove Religion Works Better than Diplomacy in the Middle East

10 Elul 5772 – August 27, 2012
A small group of religious Jews accomplished what Israel's foreign ministry could not in 3 years of attempted diplomacy - namely, to meet with representatives from the Turkish government and attempt to heal the Turkey-Israel rift. From August 15 - 17, Shas MK Nissim Ze'ev, Shas deputy finance minister Yitzchak Cohen, the chief Rabbi of Geneva, Professor Mordechai Kedar of Bar Ilan University and other leaders met with no less than twenty Turkish parliamentarians.

Using New Technologies to Promote Positivity

6 Elul 5772 – August 23, 2012
The communication revolution - and the unprecedented access to information it brought - has ushered us into a new world. It is a world of wikipedia and youtube, but also a world of live-streaming al Qaeda beheadings and slow-motion car crashes. Positivecco, an ambitious online enterprise, seeks to harness the internet to promote positivity.

Help Save the World!

27 Av 5772 – August 14, 2012
About a month ago, I received an email from a 16 year-old girl from Europe, saying that she was on the way to the airport to fly to Israel. She said that her mother read my blogs at The Jewish Press and hoped that maybe I could help her, not knowing where else to turn. She wants to finish high school in Israel, make aliyah, and go into the army. Her present high school is all gentile and Moslem and very anti-Semitic. Could I help her, she asked?

14 Av 5772 – August 1, 2012
Many conservative pundits write and lecture on the threat of radical Islam. Almost none, however, possess political power. Geert Wilders is an exception. Head of the Netherlands’ third largest political party – the Party for Freedom – Wilders is on a mission to halt Islam’s advance in the West.

Why I Love Working at the Jewish Press (I)

5 Av 5772 – July 24, 2012
I plan to make this a series of articles, pointing out how the Jewish Press effectively removes the poison from the fangs of the Jewish media stories, putting things in context and perspective and providing a Truth that represents both reality, and by definition, our Torah values.

Shut Down the Jewish Agency!

22 Tammuz 5772 – July 12, 2012
Make no mistake. I am not criticizing any of the dedicated directors or employees of the Jewish Agency. Certainly, I have nothing but praise for Mr. Sharansky. But the Jewish Agency is obsolete. It is destined to failure so long as the Rabbis, and Roshei Yeshivot, and parents, and the heads of Jewish organizations in the Diaspora don’t urge their students and children and members to go on aliyah.

Yishai’s Speech Diet – Caleb’s Forty Days For Israel

28 Sivan 5772 – June 17, 2012
How do we rectify the sin of the spies? By doing the exact opposite of what they did. We need to love Israel with all our hearts, and to take every measure that is antithetical to rejecting it. Because the original sin was committed through slanderous speech and scare tactics, we can repair the damage by focusing on positive, empowering speech for Israel.

Origins of ‘A Soldier’s Mother’

21 Sivan 5772 – June 11, 2012
It’s been more than five years since I began writing about my oldest son’s journey into the army. At first, I wrote to calm myself and keep from sharing my greatest fears with him. I called the blog A Soldier’s Mother and watched him enter the army.

Humanity, Liberty, Rationality: A Review of the Collected Writings of Rabbi Samson Raphael Hirsch:...

17 Sivan 5772 – June 7, 2012
Looking for inspiration? Read Rav Samson Raphael Hirsch. This is my general rule of thumb, which is why I was thrilled when the ninth (and presumably last) volume of the Collected Writings of Rabbi Samson Raphael Hirsch (Feldheim Publishers) came out a few weeks ago.

A Jewish Hero Grows Up in Brooklyn

15 Sivan 5772 – June 5, 2012
“The non-observant Jew knows. Deep in his heart he knows. He knows that the path [he treads] is a false one, that the Judaism he professes is a mockery.... His moment of truth lies within him. His is the power to call it into being. Let him but dig deeply into his Jewish resources and draw from them the traditional Jewish qualities of courage, determination and sacrifice."

“Hebrew Book Week” Interview with Tzvi Fishman

14 Sivan 5772 – June 4, 2012
"Rav Kook writes that it is literature which will awaken the spiritual sensitivities of mankind, when the writers of Israel undergo a process of inner purification and tshuva...When the Philip Roths and Norman Mailers stop hating themselves and their Jewish mothers, and sit for a few years in yeshiva, their books will bring mankind closer to God."

Beyond Words – Rabbi Meir Kahane at His Very Best

14 Sivan 5772 – June 3, 2012
Why be a Jew!!! It is an agonizing cry from the souls of tens of thousands of young Jews who assimilate, integrate and disappear into the outer space beyond Judaism. It is THE cry, THE question. It is asked by young men and women who have seen the emptiness and the vapidness of the Judaism they grew up with.

You Can be a Giant!

9 Sivan 5772 – May 30, 2012
When a Jew makes Aliyah to Eretz Yisrael, the letters of his soul shift into high gear and multiply in size. All of his being gets bigger. He grows closer to God. Compared to the person he was in Galut, he becomes larger than life. He transforms into a giant, filled with greater valor, greater holiness, greater happiness and wisdom.

Haredi Event On Internet Dangers Draws Thousands Of Participants

3 Sivan 5772 – May 23, 2012
The sellout crowd that filled Citi Field on Sunday night wore black and white, not the New York Mets’ blue and orange. And instead of jeering the Philadelphia Phillies or Atlanta Braves, they faced a foe that was, intheir view, far more formidable: the World Wide Web.
