Video: Ultimate Haredi Western Featuring Assassination over Get Refusal

The world is full of people without a sense of humor, as was discovered recently by Vanya Heiman, Anat Vershovsky and Amit Shimoni, all students from the "Bezalel" Academy of the Arts, who created the clip "Der Mensch" for the Visual Communication Department at the Academy.

Video: Carol Simantov Misses her Old Friends from Gaza

Outside the battered wall of the kindergarten, we met with registered nurse Carol Simantov, from Levittown, Pa., who has seen up close the wages of this war. But to my surprise, she harbored no resentment, not even anger. Instead, she spoke wistfully about her friends back inside the Gaza strip, who are suffering under the yoke of the Hamas government.

High Walls and Golden Domes

The Iron Dome is another, hi-tech manifestation of the siege mentality that guides Israel's cultural and political narrative. From media to academia to politics, Israel’s celebration of this so-called “strategic” weapon system - that neither neutralizes its threats nor enhances Israel's geo-political position – is an indictment of the degree to which Israel has accepted this siege mentality, and of its resignation to a permanent defensive posture.

Parshas Ki Sisa: ‘Don’t Panic’

Klal Yisroel stood at Har Sinai and accepted the Torah in a state of supreme purity and complete unity. Every Jew reached a level of prophecy and witnessed an unparalleled revelation of G-d. Then Moshe ascended Har Sinai for forty days so G-d could teach him the laws and details of the Torah.

The Wisdom within the Law

The Jewish nation has no such concept as “religion” in the formal sense of the term, as we reject the notion of anything lying outside the realm of HaShem. It is Israel’s mission to elevate every sphere of Creation by infusing it with kedusha and bringing it to its highest potential in our world.

If Syrian TV News can't be trusted, who can we trust?

Oprah Winfrey Impressed by Religious Jews

After a day with Lubavitch Hasidim, Oprah Winfrey says Jewish Life offers a wealth of lessons for the world.

I’m Never Wrong

After a “natural” disaster, people speak with reverence. Even arrogant individuals, after living through a hurricane, tidal wave, or earthquake, have a sense of humility. Their reality has been changed, and they view life differently. Yet, when Pharaoh and Mitzraim experienced the makkos, that wasn’t their reaction.

An Inner Harmony Like No Other

UN Secretary General Pleads for Security Council Action

Statement comes a day after Ban Ki-Moon implores Syria's Assad to "stop the massacre of his people."

Leaving The December Dilemma Behind

No matter our stage in life, one is seldom comfortable feeling left out. Unfortunately, many American Jews experience exactly that feeling each year as Christmas approaches. The term “December Dilemma” is used to describe the tension many Jews feel sitting on the sidelines, unable to fully enjoy or participate in the distinctly Christian themes and activities occurring all around.

The Ins And Outs Of Visiting The Sick: An Interview With Hospital Chaplain Rabbi...

Some people are naturals at visiting people in the hospital. Others feel awkward: What should I say? How long should I stay? Does the person even want me to come?

The Return Of The Feiglinites

“The fight for democracy is taking place today within the Likud: between Ruby Rivlin, Michael Eitan and Dan Meridor on one side, and Yariv Levin, Zeev Elkin, Danny Danon and all those who are – conditionally, of course – on [Moshe] Feiglin’s endorsed list on the other.”

It’s My Opinion: Protests And P.C.

I am shocked by the response to the “Occupy” movements in cities all over the United States. “Occupy Miami” recently joined what seems to be a loosely connected fellowship, improvising a day-to-day agenda promoting negativity. The only unifying goal seems to be a hatred of America, work and soap.

You Just Might Be An ‘Occupier’

Many of us are scratching our heads trying to make sense of the Occupy Wall Street movement and its sundry clones around the world.

A Variety Of Blends

When I became the mom of a blended family more that fifteen years ago, I imagined that there were only two possible options: either we blended or we didn’t, and blending was the definitive goal.

How The Media Can Help Heal Gilad Shalit

For five long years, a media campaign swirled around the abduction and internment of Gilad Shalit, gaining momentum with every passing day. Without a doubt, it was the media that helped keep his story alive and contributed significantly to his release, creating public pressure in favor of the historic (though unsettling) exchange of over one thousand convicted terrorists for Gilad's freedom.

In Part I (Family Issues 10-14-2011) we discussed how many of us personalize different situations and how that affects our effectiveness in dealing with those situations.

Remembering Shimie – The ‘Pied Piper’ Of Flatbush

I have never used my column to eulogize friends who have passed away, as their loss affected me and an inner circle of people who knew them - but not necessarily the community at large. But that is not the case for Shimie Silver, a"h, for without exaggerating, his circle of friends numbered in the thousands and transcended borders.
