Obama and Kerry Cannot Stop the Redemption

When our enemies tell us to choose between their culture and being Jewish the light rises within us, drawing us to our destiny. This cannot be stopped; not by Obama and not by John Kerry.

Considering the menorah through history. What is its meaning?

INTO THE FRAY: For America: Respite – NOT Redemption

For America, and everything that made it America, the results of Tuesday’s election are a welcome and necessary respite - but are far from being a lasting redemption

We Are At The Threshold Of Redemption

The difference between living in Israel verses outside of Israel is that in Israel, Judaism is the basis of the country’s daily operations.

When This is Finally Over….

When we return to our routines, things don’t have to go back to exactly the way they were.

Rabbi Yaakov Weinberg zt”l: Exile and Its Egregious Effects

The Three Weeks determines the "who we are and how we live" as Jews.

A Song of Love, a Song of Life

There is no song that tells the story of freedom like Shir HaShirim.

Elissa Strauss, Are You on our Side or on the Side of our Enemies?

Every century or so, wherever we are, we lose about 80 percent of our people for a variety of reasons.

Rav Kook’s ‘The Caged Lion’

We Ain’t Got a Soul in America

T’shuva Brings Healing to the World

When a man understands that his personal t’shuva advances the redemption process of the world, his motivation to mend his own life is enhanced.

T’shuva is the Real Tikun Olam

The expulsion of Adam and Eve from the Garden of Eden describes man’s existential plight. In effect, the sum of world history is mankind’s journey to return to the Garden. Not only man, but the world itself wants to return to its original state. This yearning is one of the most powerful forces of Creation. Thus the world “roars like a mighty lioness” to return to its original, ideal closeness to God.

Mashiach, Mashiach, Mashiach, Da Da Da Da DaDa

The Rambam himself, in his famous, “Letter of Teman,” writes: “Those who seduce themselves and say that they will stay in their places until the king, Mashiach, comes to the lands of the West, and only then will they depart and go forth to Jerusalem – I don’t know how the decree of destruction will be stayed from them. Rather, they are transgressors, and they cause others to sin."

“Why Should I Live in Israel? America Has Everything I Need”

One of the questions a person is asked when he reaches his Heavenly rest is, "Did you yearn for Salvation?" If a Jew does not long for the Redemption, for Salvation from the exile, then something is wrong. If he is happy in the Diaspora, then his Judaism is out of focus, and he is out of touch with his soul's deepest yearnings. As The Kuzari poignantly declares, his prayers for Jerusalem and Zion are like the chatterings of a nightingale, melodious but empty of meaning.

Surfing the Asifah, Now That’s a Roundup

Every opening to the outside world is a calculated risk. Every time we open a window we chance being shocked by something vile. Every...

Sefiras Ha’Omer – Why We Count, What We Count

Sefer HaChinuch: The Torah commands us to count the Omer so we can relive the Exodus from Mitzrayim. Just as the Jews back then anxiously anticipated the great day when they were to receive the Torah, so too we count the days till Shavuos, the Yom Tov that commemorates the giving of the Torah. To the Jews then, accepting the Torah on Har Sinai was even greater than their redemption from slavery. So we count each day to bring ourselves to that sense of great enthusiasm, as if to say, “When will that day come?”

Five Terms Of Endearment – So Why Only Four Cups Of Wine?

The number four seems to play a major role in the Pesach Seder. We have four questions, four sons, four terms of endearment and, of course, one of the major features we soon will be enjoying – the drinking of four cups of wine.

Closing Our Eyes To The New Haman (Part I)

I dare not remain silent. I dare not ignore the wake-up calls and the catastrophe they portend. So I ask you to read my ensuing columns on the subject with open minds and receptive hearts. I will limit myself to the wake-up calls we have witnessed over the past couple of years, though they began considerably earlier.

The Tragic Vacuum (Part Three)

Several weeks ago I published a letter from an elderly Holocaust survivor who expressed her fear regarding the world situation, specifically the hatred of Israel and escalation of anti-Semitism that is reminiscent of pre-Holocaust Europe. Her letter provoked a torrent of e-mails from young and old readers, several of which I published, but I had not responded to her directly. B'ezrat Hashem, I will do so now.

Q & A: Two Adars (Part II)

QUESTION: I have a few questions regarding the Jewish leap year. Why do we always add a second Adar as opposed to adding a second Tevet or Iyar for example? Why do we call it Adar Alef? Why is Purim celebrated in the second Adar? And which Adar is the real Adar?Shea Aronovitch(Via E-Mail)

Title: The Alternative
