Parshat Vaeira

28 Tevet 5772 – January 22, 2012
General George Armstrong Custer. The mere mention of his name evokes strong opinions of condemnation or admiration, depending on one’s perspective.

Parshat Mikeitz

27 Kislev 5772 – December 22, 2011
Looking back in time it is amazing to realize that every so often we encounter a 24-hour period with a timeless impact on the trajectory of human history. These periods, though short in actual time, through the convergence of multiple factors, produced historic decisions—decisions that arguably affected humankind forever after.

Jewish Candles: The Power Of Discernment

26 Kislev 5772 – December 21, 2011
And God said, Let there be light; and there was light. God’s first magnificent gesture was to create light. For Jews, light is glory, insight, wisdom, warmth. It is safety and it is hope.

Miami International Conference On Torah And Science

9 Kislev 5772 – December 5, 2011
How does the brain age? Where is the soul and how does one connect with it when the brain is failing? Does memory loss or mind deterioration diminish the quality of an internal spiritually meaning life?

‘Just For This!’: Integrating The Artificial And The Natural

29 Elul 5771 – September 27, 2011
A fisherman once lived near the banks of a river. One evening, exhausted from his labors, he straggled home dreaming of what his life would be like if he were suddenly rich. Suddenly, his foot brushed against a leather pouch filled with small stones that lay on the path. Falling back into his reverie, he picked up the pouch and absent-mindedly began throwing the pebbles into the water.

Title: Stages of Spiritual Growth

8 Elul 5771 – September 7, 2011
For today's Jew seeking to grow spiritually, there's mussar, and then there is modern psychology. Armed with 20th century research on how behaviors develop and how humans create internal change, today's Jewish do-gooder has an arsenal of tools beyond Pirkei Avos and the mussar masters to work on problems like, say, gossiping or overeating.

Recollections Of Rabbi Dr. Aaron Levine

21 Iyyar 5771 – May 25, 2011
Rabbi Dr. Aaron Levine, z"l, passed away on the first day of Pesach, one day before his 65th birthday. He was an erudite scholar who had received semicha from the Rabbi Jacob Joseph Theological Seminary and a PhD in economics from New York University. He was equally at home in the world of Torah and in the secular world, and thus a unique combination of Torah and chochmah, something that is increasingly rare today. Furthermore, this intellectual prowess was clothed in a mantel of extreme humility.

The Yarmulke: Crown Of Honor, Sign Of Humility

7 Iyyar 5771 – May 11, 2011
An old Jew, stripped to his ill-fitting pajama bottoms, his ribs pronounced in his emaciated frame, is being mocked as he is kicked and prodded through a double line of soldiers.

Give Me A Troika: The Hillel Sandwich

25 Nisan 5771 – April 28, 2011
When fulfilling the commandments God has given us, I often think of dedicated high school athletes who, when their coaches say "Jump!" do not seek an excuse to do less but rather focus on doing what the coach said, and then some.

Dreidels And Daily Miracles: What a Modest Spinning Top Can Teach...

24 Kislev 5771 – December 1, 2010
What does it take to experience a miracle? Nothing more than to live a life with eyes wide open. The truth is, we live in an age of miracles and wonder. Does that sound like a ridiculous statement to you - to characterize the age of the Internet, gene therapy, and biological science as an age of miracles? For many people, the idea of "miracles" comes straight from Medieval times. They view miracles as fantasy and "anti-science."

On Jewish Optimism

16 Elul 5770 – August 25, 2010
There are those who view an authentic Jewish life as confining and repressive - pessimistic even. So many restrictions. Countless obligations. So much "observance" rather than "celebration." Yom Kippur fasts. Tzom Gedaliah. Tisha B'Av. The Seventeenth of Tammuz. So much sadness. So much pain. And then there is the emphasis on the in-depth study of mussar - ethics - emblematic of the Jewish need to continually rise to higher moral and spiritual levels.

A Nation’s Loss

3 Av 5770 – July 14, 2010
While Shylock, in Shakespeare's play, might have used the plural as a rhetorical device, his words speak to a greater truth about community and nation. When we look at a country and wonder why it behaves in the way it does - with charity, belligerence, etc. - we are seeing an entity functioning as an individual might, often driven by the same emotions, ethics and sense of justice.

Tender Reminiscences: Chief Rabbi Carlebach And My Family

28 Sivan 5770 – June 9, 2010
A few months before my family emigrated in 1938 to the United States from Hamburg, Germany, I had the special privilege at the bris of my brother, Micha, to sit on the lap of Chief Rabbi Joseph Carlebach, zt"l, a revered rabbinical giant of his age.
