No Matter What Happens with Trump, Obama’s anti-Israel Narrative will Take a Huge Hit

With Trump's election, Americans will inevitably view the Middle East , and specifically Israel, differently because no one that shares Obama's worldview will remain in the White House.

Do Women’s Rights Matter to J Street?

J Street's mission has been to bring about creation of a Palestinian state next to Israel. Israelis believe it would be a brutal totalitarian state, the kind that often invades neighboring countries.

A Matter Of Judgment

I think ordinary Americans are tired of too many media types and too many elected officials assuring them they have nothing to worry about, when they clearly know they do.

Dead Arabs Don’t Matter to the World — Unless Israel Killed Them

International journalists and international "human rights" bodies --dragging their halos around-- customarily overlook Arab victims whose sufferings have nothing to do with Israel.

Trump as a Matter of Principle

A minority within a minority: Jewish Blue-State professionals who plan to vote for Donald Trump. Can they make the difference?

Gray Matter

When the time comes and a Syrian ruler other than Assad take over, US pressure on Israel to begin negotiations on returning the Golan Heights would begin afresh.

50 UN Members Did Not Support Palestinian Upgrade

Boys And Reading: Is There Any Hope?

In a recent New York Times article, Robert Lipsyte, a sports author, posed the following question: “Boys and Reading: Is There Any Hope?” For years, I have been dealing with this question in my office. In fact, the U.S. Department of Education’s reading tests for the last thirty years show boys scoring worse than girls in every age group, every year.

Thanking Our ‘Squantos’

It’s the classic image - the pumpkins; the berries; the squash, the turkey. It’s the beginning of a season that brings with it a sudden, exciting feeling. It’s the crisp fall air turning to gray winter; the strings of perfect, colorful leaves decorating doors and houses, the bright hues of reds and oranges. It almost feels like the cinnamon in the pumpkin pie is somehow in the air.

Ceasefire a Poor Outcome for Israel

Today, the IDF announced that it had “accomplished its pre-determined objectives for Operation Pillar of Defense, and has inflicted severe damage to Hamas and its military capabilities.” It is embarrassing to read this statement.

The President And Operation Pillar Of Defense

True to his word, President Obama has demonstrated that when it comes to Israel’s security, he does indeed have the country’s back. In the current confrontation with Hamas, he has from the start unequivocally laid the blame on Hamas and said Israel has the right to defend itself and that for the crisis to end Hamas must stop firing rockets at Israel.

The Age Of Disrespect

And Lavan and Betuel answered and said, “It is from Hashem that this has come forth. We can speak neither for nor against it.”...

Q & A: The Sandak (Part III)

Question: I was at a brit where the father and grandfather of the boy argued over who should be sandak. The grandfather had served as sandak once before, but he persisted and, as they say, “might makes right.” I am curious as to your view on this matter. M. Renkin (Via E-Mail)

Light In The Face Of Darkness

As I write these words I am still in my new adopted home. Originally I came to my wonderful friends’ warm apartment with the intention of staying just overnight and I did not even bother packing. My children kept pressuring me – “Ima, you have to go!”

Love And Fear…Of Food

Some of us climb a scale each day in terror and dread. Some of us alight a scale, with our hearts thumping and throats tightening. We may know how to jump off and on, or gyrate this way or that to create a different number. And we will stare at that all important number – which could very well dictate our mood for the rest of the day. We believe the final number to be the true judge of our worth – of how well we are doing. And we are sorry that the scale could not be fooled.

Gold Buyers Beware: Fraudulent Gold Found in the Marketplace

Word has been spreading that some gold experts have cracked open the gold bars that they bought only to discover tungsten (a metal worth about one-fifth of the value of gold) inside. Since tungsten has a similar density to gold, it’s easy to confuse people, amateurs and experts alike. With bars of gold that weigh ten ounces or more, using regular x-rays to determine the chemical composition of the metal doesn’t work well since the x-rays don’t penetrate deep enough.

Palestinian Statehood, Terror, And The U.S. Presidential Election (First of Two Parts)

President Obama and Governor Romney strongly disagree on many issues but the daylight between them is especially great in the imminent matter of Palestinian statehood. For his part, the president still believes in a two-state solution, and in a corollary willingness of the Palestinian side to negotiate fairly. His opponent is unambiguous in a fully contrary insistence that the Palestinians are not interested in peace.

The Joy of Achdus

It doesn’t matter to what segment of Orthodox Jewry one belongs. All segments celebrate this day with the same exuberance. It is truly the Torah which unites us all, right to left.
