Closing Our Eyes To The New Haman (Part I)

7 Adar 5772 – February 29, 2012
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.

Pidyon Ha’ben (Bechorot 46)

17 Tevet 5772 – January 11, 2012

The Tragic Vacuum (Part Three)

9 Nisan 5771 – April 13, 2011
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)

26 Adar I 5771 – March 2, 2011
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)

Heeding The Cry Of The Unborn

14 Nisan 5770 – March 29, 2010
Let's face it: it's unusual and even somewhat bizarre nowadays to encounter a family with more than two children. It is almost as if a war is launched against the unborn after a "red line" of two or three children has been reached.

Haman-nejad

2 Nisan 5770 – March 17, 2010
Something about this Purim bothered me. It seemed too relevant. Once again, a Persian Haman has emerged - Haman-nejad (nejad or nezhad is a Persian suffix meaning "descendant of"), who has again made the existence of Israel a topic for debate. Some say that the world is better off with Israel, and others say that the world is better off without Israel. "Enlightened" academia has not yet decided, but it looks like the scales are tipping in favor of a world without Israel.

Tending The Garden

13 Sivan 5767 – May 30, 2007
I'm often asked why it is that men played such a major role in Jewish history.

Q & A: Yahrzeit And The Two Adars (Conclusion)

28 Adar I 5765 – March 9, 2005
QUESTION: In a leap year when there are two months of Adar, during which month is a yahrzeit observed? Do the rules of yahrzeit precedence apply in regard to Kaddish? Finally, can you discuss the precedence regarding leading services during the year of mourning?M. BermanLos Angeles, CA
