Again? Yes, Again

"Not again!" you may say. To which I respond, "Yes, again!" I say this as I write once again about the most heinous tragedy that could have befallen us, so even though it may not be popular - even though your reaction may be, "We heard it already" - I am nevertheless writing because I fear we have returned to business as usual.

Kushner No Mere ‘Critic’ Of Israel

From the reaction of many on the liberal/left to the controversy over CUNY's granting an honorary degree to playwright Tony Kushner, one sees yet again just how unremarkable and acceptible the most virulent views of Israel have become, even - perhaps especially - among Jews.

Not The Jewish Way

Those of you who have heard me speak or who read my columns and books know that whenever I opine on a subject I try to base what I say or write on our Torah and the teachings of our sages. There are so many things taking place so rapidly in front of our eyes that before we can absorb one event, another one unfolds. This rapid succession is so overwhelming that it allows us no time to think.

The Adventure of a Jewish Photographer: Miriam M?rsel Nathan’s Photo-Paintings

In Italo Calvino's short story "The Adventure of a Photographer," part of his collection Difficult Loves (1985), the "non-photographer" and bachelor Antonino Paraggi, finds himself increasingly alienated from his married friends who go out with their families and cameras each Sunday and "come back as happy as hunters with bulging game bags," their photographic catch of the day.

Confederacy Of Dunces

The indispensable Media Research Center never lacks for material when compiling its "Notable Quotable" listings of stupidity, bias and malfeasance on the part of journalists and other media types.

Punish Us All

Every time a Muslim terrorist commits an atrocity, the insane reaction of our liberal societies is to punish everyone collectively. Several years ago, a terrorist tried to detonate an explosive hidden in his shoe. As a result, every airline passenger is now required to remove his shoes and pass them through an x-ray device. It is common in airports to see long lines of passengers walking barefoot or in their stocking feet, queued up and waiting to have their shoes checked. Instead of forcing all Muslims to fly barefoot, every single passenger is inconvenienced to avoid racial profiling.

Im Yirtzeh Hashem By You…

Dear Young and Not Pressured: I am responding to your letter from two weeks ago. I take issue with both your general message and with...

My Answer (Part 3)

The last few articles have dealt with advice that an experienced caregiver can pass on to someone who is new at it. The articles were prompted by a letter I received from a former caregiver who was trying to help out a friend who recently found herself in a similar caregiving situation.

The Unstated Message (Part II)

Last week I wrote that what we say to others, and the way we say it, might evoke emotions in our listeners that may or may not be what we intend.

When It’s Time to Stop Being Nice!

Is there ever a time to say, "Enough! No more Mr. Nice guy for me!"

The Hardest Three Words to Say

You and your spouse are driving along the highway. You begin to strongly suspect that you have missed your exit.

Allergy Alert: Enough to Make You Nuts

The sweet and salty salvation of picky eaters across the lunchroom has become public enemy number one to many children. The tub of peanut butter that taught me the meaning of "industrial size," is no longer relevant in many schools.

Why Do We Give Gifts?

Dear Ann, I am a well spouse on a fixed and limited income. My neighbor's son, who is friendly with my son, invited himself over for latkes the first night of Chanukah.

Caring For Our Seniors And Holocaust Survivors (Part 4)

In the Jan. 4 and 11 issues I reprinted some triggers that may spark awful flashbacks for Holocaust Survivors.

Caring For Our Seniors and Holocaust Survivors: A Conference (Part 3)

Last week I began to share the list of triggers put together by the Ahavas Chesed of Montreal.

Caring For Our Seniors And Holocaust Survivors: A Conference (Part 2)

Last week I talked about the conference I attended that was designed for non-Jewish caregivers of our elderly and Holocaust survivors.

Points To Ponder

• Michael Beschloss, the historian whose new book, Presidential Courage, played such a prominent role in the Monitor’s last offering, apparently has become a victim of Bush Derangement Syndrome, so named by columnist Charles Krauthammer in 2003 as he sought to give a name to “the acute onset of paranoia in otherwise normal people in reaction to the policies, the presidency – nay, the very existence – of George W. Bush.”

Vandals Desecrate Cemetery

Last week, Mr. Sigmund Rolat visited his birthplace in Poland, the city of Czestochowa. As he does on every trip, he took time out to pay his respects to the local Jewish cemetery.

Allergies!

My day begins as a perfectly sunny, breezy, late summer morning. But then we meet.
