Farewell to Chabad Lubavitch Chassidic Master of Melodies, Eli Lipsker, z’l

Eli’s recordings of Jewish music opened a path for other observant Jewish musicians and vocalists, and created an entirely new genre.

One is remembered for his mitzvahs and good deeds, and Rabbi “Heritage House’ Schuster will be remembered forever.

The Outreach Revolution

16 Iyyar 5773 – April 26, 2013
Our battles with the Conservative movement are over. They no longer pose a threat to Orthodoxy.

Outreach, Inreach and Insularity

20 Tevet 5773 – January 1, 2013
Inspiring the unaffiliated can be done through inspirational stories or through our own behavior as role models.

The Legacy Of Rav Aharon Kotler

1 Kislev 5773 – November 14, 2012
As we commemorate the fiftieth yahrzeit this Friday, the second day of Kislev, of Rav Aaron Kotler – the greatest Jew, in the opinion of even many of his fellow Torah luminaries, ever to set foot on North American soil – we are obligated to reflect on his achievements and the lessons he taught.

The Anonymous Eliezer: A Tribute to Zev Wolfson, Z”L

23 Heshvan 5773 – November 7, 2012
"And the servant said to him…" (Genesis 24:5). The biblical portion of Chayei Sarah comprises two chapters in the Book of Genesis. The first (chapter 23) deals with the death and burial of Sarah and the second (chapter 24) deals with the selection of a suitable wife for Isaac.

Reality Threat

21 Heshvan 5773 – November 5, 2012
The following is a partial list of things I always knew I would never be good at: 1) Math 2) Creative writing 3) Jewish outreach 4) Playing with children

The Home-Run Hitter

2 Heshvan 5773 – October 18, 2012
Twenty-five years ago, when kiruv was still a relatively new concept, a group of four young rabbis left Ner Yisrael with families in tow to head down south to Atlanta, Georgia. Rabbi David Silverman was one of those pioneers who founded the Atlanta Scholars Kollel. He is a powerhouse of kiruv – his charisma, sincerity and broad knowledge have helped him inspire thousands of Jews, including this writer.

An Eis La’asos – The Time is Ripe

25 Elul 5772 – September 11, 2012
Rabbi Eric H. Yoffie, the former president of the Union of Reform Judaism, has argued that the reform movement should look to Orthodox Judaism for guidance. Harry Maryles argues that this provides an important kiruv opportunity.

Southern Hospitality

30 Av 5772 – August 17, 2012
One of the most popular tourist destinations in the American South, Savannah, Georgia is a world of exciting history and activity. Rich with landmarks from over 275 years, the city boasts unique architecture, Civil War commemorative tours, and a long list of beautiful squares and parks. In addition, Savannah’s Tybee Island provides a beach atmosphere for those who want to relax on and off-shore. Interestingly, Savannah also hosts a small but thriving Jewish community. The Savannah Jewish Federation offers family services and community resources, and there are a number of places to find kosher food. The city has three shuls: one for Orthodox, Conservative, and Reform congregations, respectively. A few weeks ago I had the opportunity to speak with Rabbi Avigdor and Rebbetzin Rochel Slatus of the Bnai Brith Jacob Synagogue.

The Alternate World Of Jewish Education

21 Av 5772 – August 8, 2012
A major sociological characteristic and consequence of modernity is the tendency for people to join together in associations that express a common goal or interest or a shared experience. The United States has been a nation of joiners from day one and perhaps even before independence was declared. Alexis de Tocqueville described this tendency in Democracy in America, the epic prophetic work published a century and three-quarters ago.

Hashgachah Pratis – Guidance From Above

28 Adar 5772 – March 21, 2012
Most people have difficulty discerning Hashem's call since His messages are usually hidden behind many veils. On occasion however, hashgachah pratis – Divine providence – is so clear and obvious that even a blind man has to see it, a deaf man has to hear it.

Place Of Honor

8 Tishri 5772 – October 5, 2011
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. If they studied the First Temple era, for example, they would then visit the City of David.

Torah Live’s Mezuzah Presentation – A New Approach To An Ancient...

1 Tishri 5772 – September 28, 2011
Nowadays, Jewish parents and educators must ask themselves how they can present Torah and mitzvot in a way that speaks to this generation. To many youth today, Judaism’s rich heritage seems outdated, irrelevant and boring.

Just Two Words

22 Elul 5771 – September 21, 2011
Many moons ago, when I established Hineni, kiruv - outreach - was a foreign concept. The Orthodox world looked askance at the idea. "You're wasting your time," I was told. "Maybe they will become observant for a day, or even a few weeks, but then they will go back to their former life style."

Mother Knows Best

3 Av 5771 – August 3, 2011
I am just a small-town girl whose aspirations never included the notion of traveling to exotic places. I dreamed of getting married, raising a family, and living near my parents and in-laws.

Religious Zionist Outreach Takes Israel By Storm

25 Adar II 5771 – March 30, 2011
Something different is happening in Israel. It's been going on for a few years already. Now it's just about everywhere: The presence of Dati Leumi kiruv movements. Israelis are used to seeing Chabad of course, and some attend lectures by Arachim and Aish HaTorah. But this is new. For the first time, you can find Jewish outreach stands manned by individuals wearing kippot serugot at shopping malls, bus stations and major intersections throughout the country.

We Should Not Be Surprised

25 Av 5770 – August 4, 2010
If I am granted the years and strength, in three years (and during my eightieth year) I will conduct another census of Jewish day schools in the United States, following up on my previous research conducted at five-year intervals.
