Mashiach At The Threshhold

The entire epoch of Mashiach will be concluded by the year 6000. The Jewish calendar is now year 5777 Think about what is at stake and what are the consequences. What must we do to hasten the arrival?

Mashiach Without Miracles

It's our turn to act and help bring the process to fruition.

Still A Nation That Dwells Alone (Continued from Last Week)

The time immediately preceding Mashiach's arrival is likened to the birth pangs of a woman in labor.

The Collective Heart Of Am Yisrael

An Israeli soldier: "We feel an amazing embrace by the whole nation; we're all part of one family"

Breaking The Fwd:fwd:fwd:fwd:fwd Chain

Rav Pam said we must realize that God has no pleasure from such negative speech.

Is Judaism Past or Future?

Man has been in descent since revelation and that we have been rendered impotent.

Religious Right and ACLU Protest Judge’s No Messiah Ruling

The name would impose an "undue burden on him that as a human being he cannot fulfill," the judge wrote.

Turks Praise Israel’s Apology

Netanyahu did the right thing in the right manner and with the right words.

The Maccabees’ Response To ‘World Opinion’

“Israel has bad public relations.” This is the perennial cry. “Israel must improve its image to convince the world of the justness of its cause.”

The Merit Of Eretz Yisrael

Yaakov Avinu received word that his brother Eisav was coming to greet him. He understood fully well that this was not to be a warm family reunion. Eisav came accompanied by a band of four hundred armed men, bent on revenge. The Torah describes Yaakov as “very frightened,” so he prepared for war.

Tevye in the Promised Land, Chapter Nineteen: A Trail of Tomatoes

The indefatigable woodchopper, Goliath, provided the posts and slats for the fence which the settlers began erecting around the kibbutz. Ben Zion adamantly opposed the idea, claiming a fence would turn the settlement into a ghetto and curtail any further expansion.

What Does It All Mean?

The continuation of my column on the power of prayer was ready to go – but then tragedy hit. Tragedy of a magnitude none of us could have envisioned.

Tevye in the Promised Land, Chapter 14: The Dybbuk

Strangely, the person who seemed most affected by Tzeitl's death was Goliath. Upon hearing the news, he surrounded himself with an impenetrable wall. He...

Kashrut – More Than Just A Symbol On A Box

When I walk in to the grocery store it is second nature for me to just check to make sure that that bag of chips or that cookie has an OU or other kosher symbol on it. To many Jews, it is just something that they do, and it usually is like that for me. But when this question was asked, I thought deeper. I began to think about how this label gives me a sense of community; and as I made that connection, I thought of our rich heritage, and once that relationship was made I thought about our homeland – Israel.

Renewing The Face Of The Earth

I sleep every Tisha B’Av night on a narrow cushion in front of the Me’aras HaMachpelah in Hebron. I do this because the following chiddush came to me many years ago: When the spies went to Israel, the pasuk says “vayavo ad Chevron” – “and he came until Hebron.” He instead of they. Rashi says only Calev ben Yefuneh went to Hebron, to pray to Avraham Avinu that he not fall for the plan of the spies.

Mashiach, Mashiach, Mashiach, Da Da Da Da DaDa

The Rambam himself, in his famous, “Letter of Teman,” writes: “Those who seduce themselves and say that they will stay in their places until the king, Mashiach, comes to the lands of the West, and only then will they depart and go forth to Jerusalem – I don’t know how the decree of destruction will be stayed from them. Rather, they are transgressors, and they cause others to sin."

The Messiah Ain’t JeZeus, That’s for Sure!

The task of the Mashiach is to save the Jews from its enemies and rebuild the Nation of Israel, yet the followers of Jezeus have slaughtered millions and millions of Jews and done everything in their power to keep Israel lowly and weak.

Mashiach Now!

Some people don’t realize that Mashiach’s coming is a process that evolves over time. These people want everything to be finished at the start. They say that when Mashiach comes and does all the work of rebuilding the Land of Israel, and gathers all of the exiled Jews to Israel, and fights the wars of Hashem, and rebuilds the Beit HaMikdash, then they will come on aliyah. First, everything has to be perfect. First, the Mashiach has to do all the work.

Miracles In Moscow

“If you put Google, Apple, and Microsoft together, it still doesn’t compare to the miracles of Jewish renaissance I have witnessed in this country,” I said to two reporters from The New York Times and Moscow Times.

Getting Back Together

We all know we have to take the Three Weeks seriously. But at the same time we all just want the time between the 17th of Tammuz and Tisha B’Av to pass already.

First Of The Land

There are 613 mitzvoth – we all know that. We also all know it is impossible for one person to perform all 613. Twenty-five mitzvot can only be performed in the Land of Israel, which leaves many Jews out in the cold, shall we say. After all, the people of Israel and the Land of Israel are inextricably intertwined; they are in fact dependent on one another for survival. But Judaism has a solution or as a modern Israeli would say, a “patent.” Mitzvot can be performed by proxy; by taking a part in a mitzvah one merits a share in the whole.

Tevye in the Promised Land, Chapter Two: Golda

Tevye took the shovel and started to dig. The earth was hard, but after breaking through the frozen topsoil, the ground became looser below. Whoever would have dreamed of Tevye digging up his Golda?
