Rabbi Riskin to Retire from Ohr Torah Stone

Riskin, 77, transformed the Lincoln Square Synagogue in New York City to become one of the most popular centers of modern Orthodoxy on America’s eastern Seaboard.

Modernizing Modern Orthodoxy

Take the most creative and modern-minded adherents, and make sure they have a place for their creative ambitions.

‘You Murder the Children’: Rav Soloveitchik on Abortion

Rav Soloveitchik stated that "to me it is something vulgar, this clamor of the liberals that abortion be permitted."

Torah and Science – The Controversy Remains

It seems that two very prominent rabbinic figures have come on board with Rabbi Slifkin’s views with respect to reconciling science and the Torah. According to a post on Hirhurim by Rabbi Gil Student, Rabbi Jonathan Sacks, the Chief Rabbi of England, and a man of great intellect who I respect and admire greatly is one of them. The other is Rabbi Yaakov Ariel - one of the chief Poskim of Religious Zionists in Israel. These two people are not just your average rabbis. They are both highly respected not only by me but by Jews all over the world.

Bais Yaakov Dropout: So Where Were My Parents?

When I said I wish someone had been there to tell me all the things I know about Judaism now, I was wrong. There were people who would have told me, had I been brave enough to ask.

But when I was fourteen and feeling like I didn't fit in, I didn't think anyone would understand.

They are both seen as Orthodox and their worldviews are more or less seen to be the same: decidedly anti-modern. But this viewpoint doesn't reflect the reality.

For A Viable Modern Orthodoxy, Center Must Hold

Orthodox Groups Sharpen Focus On Jewish Ethics

On the first day of Rosh Hashanah, Rabbi Moshe Shulman of the Young Israel of St. Louis devoted his sermon to yashrut, the Hebrew notion of fairness and honesty, calling it a "foundational concept" in Jewish life.
