Shiloh Musings: Construction Fiascos, The Tipping Point towards Death

How could it have happened? Apparently, the owner decided to add a garden on top and like many of us, figured that "a garden doesn't weigh much" without properly checking engineering ramifications.

The Parsha Experiment – Chukat: A Turning Point In Israel’s Relationship With God

Kerry to Labor Party Leader: If No Deal by March, US Pulls Out

No one beats the State Department in smoke and mirror acts (Defense concentrates more on dog and pony).

Images of ‘the Other’

Images of ‘the other’ are heavily biased by what the media report about them.

Syria (Today) and ‘Palestine’ (Tomorrow) II

Easily misrepresented or abused, international law can generally be manipulated to serve virtually any preferred geo-political strategy.

The Internet, Halacha, and Olam HaBah

I happen to know Gedolei Torah and Roshei Yeshiva who use I-phones and the internet. Are they all doomed?

The Collective Jew

Three incidents have once again reinforced what I have known all my life.

Hooligans?!

They can say it is only the hooligans and that every society has hooligans. I don't believe them.

No Room for Moderate Palestinians

Obviously, the Palestinians have been radicalized to a point where they are not ready to hear about any concessions to Israel or tolerate the presence of an Israeli businessman in a Palestinian city.

A Thank You from JewishPress.com

Thank you to all our readers who responded and opened up their homes to residents from Israel's south.

Road To Recovery

Dear Brocha, As I write this letter I am overcome with emotions. Relief, fear, trepidation, elation…the feelings are all jumbled up inside of me. Please allow me to back track. My daughter, who recently turned 20, just left to rehab. After four years of denial, lies, manipulation, anger and chaos she finally admitted she has a problem with alcohol.

A Small Jewish World

Two recent experiences served to drive home the point to me that – with apologies to the popular Disney musical boat ride “It’s a Small World” – it really is a small Jewish world.

No! No! Don’t Rebuild Galut!

I know that I promised to lay the sledgehammer aside for awhile, but a few of yesterday’s news items made me batty. In one of them, the UJA-Federation of New York announced it was earmarking ten million dollars in emergency hurricane relief to its local network agencies and synagogues. Chevre! Chaval al hakesev!

So Now What?

There it is: four more years of Barack Obama. What does it mean for Israel? The bilateral talks with Iran run by Valerie Jarrett will continue. One can hope for the best, but it is very unlikely that an agreement will be reached that will include the effective dismantling of Iran’s bomb-building capability. It’s not at all comforting to think that Israel’s security will be in the hands of Jarrett, Obama’s Chicago fixer. One can speculate what Romney might have done differently, but that is not an option now.

Things You See from Over Here

We stare at the images of devastation, both to personal property and to the very shoreline of the Eastern Seaboard, and we are aghast.

The Making of a President and the Making of a Gadol

I must say that I was a little bit amused by the above video featured on Aish.com. In about 3 minutes Mrs. Lori Palatnik proudly explains the difference between how Americans choose their leaders and how Orthodox Jews chose their leaders. Choosing a President in this great country of ours is a democratic process, but it is heavily influenced by money and power; ads and sloganeering; and smearing the opponent. Politics at its worst one might say. Certainly the best man available for the job may not be elected, or even running.

Postcard from Israel: Sussita

Sussita – or Antiochia-Hippos, to call it by its Greek name – sits on the eastern shore of the Sea of Galilee, towering 350 meters above Kibbutz Ein Gev. Founded around 200 BCE, during Roman times Sussita was one of the Decapolis – the ten cities. The city was predominantly Christian from the fourth century until its destruction in the massive earthquake of January 749, after which it was never resettled. It boasts many features, including impressive fortifications, several churches and pagan temples, a commercial area, bath houses, a beautiful odeon overlooking the lake and a port on the lake shore below. In 1951, an IDF outpost was established on the mountain which was until 1967 Israel’s easternmost point, merging with the Golan Heights.

Long Island Orthodox Woman a Volunteer Firefighter

Weiner was born and raised in New York, where very few Orthodox Jewish women volunteer as firefighters, she says.

Israel ‘Accused’ of Ensuring Gazan’s Had Proper Nutrition

The most interesting aspect of the Guardian/AP report on Oct. 17, ‘Israel used calorie count to limit Gaza food during the blockade,' in addition to the extremely misleading headline, is that there is little if anything in the story which demonstrates that Israel did anything improper whatsoever.
