Poles Unhappy with Obama’s Retraction, as Entire Polish Economy Is at Stake

10 Sivan 5772 – May 31, 2012
Polish Prime Minister Donald Tusk demanded a more "explicit reaction" to Obama's "Polish death camp" comment. Poland fears being sued for billions of dollars worth of property appropriated from Jews.

Sharing Recipes

6 Iyyar 5772 – April 27, 2012
The first few post-Pesach days are filled with the hurried rush to consume as much “chometz” as possible – and then the weight concerns begin. For some, the gut reaction (pun intended) is to stop eating – never a good idea. We all know that the best way to lose those extra pounds is by focusing on eating healthy.

The Eisner Affair

4 Iyyar 5772 – April 25, 2012
We would never presume to second-guess the IDF’s judgment concerning the actions of one of its officers while on duty. But several observations need to be made about the worldwide reaction to that video of IDF Lt. Col. Shalom Eisner’s striking a demonstrator with a rifle butt.

The Mayor’s Tepid Response To The Brooklyn Bombings

20 Heshvan 5772 – November 17, 2011
We were encouraged by the statement of Kings County District Attorney Charles Hynes that he will not agree to any plea bargains and will seek the maximum jail sentence of up to fifteen years in prison for anyone convicted in last week’s Flatbush firebombings. Several cars were destroyed and swastikas and anti-Jewish slurs were painted on nearby park benches in the early morning attack.

Leiby’s Legacy

10 Av 5771 – August 10, 2011
Note to readers: When I heard the words, "You give us seven minutes and we'll give you the world" on the radio at 6:30 a.m. on Wednesday morning, July 13, I never thought that what I was about to hear would shake me to the core and change my world forever. I could not come to myself - and I'm sure most of klal Yisraelcouldn't either. So I sat down and the following poem spilled forth. Because it is written in a simple style, simple enough for any child to understand, I hope it does not seem to trivialize what happened; it is just my humble reaction to an earth-shattering event.

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

14 Iyyar 5771 – May 18, 2011
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

7 Iyyar 5771 – May 11, 2011
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

5 Heshvan 5771 – October 13, 2010
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

11 Tammuz 5770 – June 23, 2010
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

20 Tevet 5770 – January 6, 2010
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…

27 Iyyar 5769 – May 20, 2009
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)

1 Adar 5769 – February 25, 2009
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)

11 Tevet 5769 – January 7, 2009
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!

7 Heshvan 5769 – November 5, 2008
Is there ever a time to say, "Enough! No more Mr. Nice guy for me!"

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

The Hardest Three Words to Say

30 Tishri 5769 – October 29, 2008
You and your spouse are driving along the highway. You begin to strongly suspect that you have missed your exit.
