Stolen Waters are Sweet

22 Tammuz 5772 – July 12, 2012
Bright young minds will have questions. The most logical place to see answers is from your parents or teachers. But when questions are explicitly or implicitly forbidden, these very same young people will seek answers elsewhere. The easiest place to find them is the internet. Ban, no matter how strong they are, no matter how enforced they are will not prevent a young person from somehow finding access. And that’s when the slippery slope begins.

8 Tammuz 5772 – June 27, 2012
What is the greatest present that you can give your children when they get married? In certain communities, the answer is, “an apartment.” Many parents take on second or third mortgages, sell their own homes, or bury themselves in debt to make sure that an apartment comes along with the trousseau.

The Sin of the Spies – Perspective

26 Sivan 5772 – June 15, 2012
The message of the Biblical account of the Spies has tremendous relevance today, here in the modern State of Israel.

Is CUNY Planning a Jewish Quota?

14 Sivan 5772 – June 4, 2012
CUNY Chancellor Matthew Goldstein has stepped into a gigantic mound of odoriferous matter, and it isn't clear if and how he's getting out of it, and, worse, what will the cleaning bill be.

Are Diamonds Forever?

12 Sivan 5772 – June 1, 2012

Pushing The Envelope In The Obama White House

3 Sivan 5772 – May 23, 2012
While we share the belief of most Americans that candidates for office should run on a level playing field, we are not naïve enough to believe incumbency doesn't matter. There are perks that come with political office, particularly the highest political office in the land. For example, presidents running for reelection are allowed to use Air For One, with all its attendant trappings of power, when traveling to and from campaign events – though their campaigns are required to reimburse the public treasury for expenses incurred.

The idea that the majority of readers are female is consistent with reading scores around the nation.

5 Iyyar 5772 – April 26, 2012
Dear Dr. Yael: I am having a very difficult time putting my children to sleep at night. My four-year-old son constantly barges out of his room after he has been put to bed.
