Arabs with Bomb Surrender at IDF Base

In what appears to be a strange story, two Arabs carry an explosive device went up to the gates of the Shomron battalion base...

Teddy Bears

Shimon looked up at me with a serious look in his bright green eyes as he earnestly told me, “I’m going to measure which one is heavier, my mitzvos or my avayros.” I couldn’t help but smile at his five year old virtues and watched as he took down the toy scale and took little teddy bears, moving them from side to side, looking for the correct balance.

And the Lie Continues…

Once again, the nonsense that a child is wiping up blood in Gaza as a picture is used again. This time, it is claimed by Syrian rebels to be a child there. In defending the Syrian rebels, Linda Juniper attempts to set the story straight...and misses completely.

Many Gazans Less Than Peachy About Fruit Import Ban

With the exception of bananas and apples, fruit will no longer be brought from Israel to Gaza is, according to the Agriculture Ministry on Monday.

The Unmentionable Pig

One of the stranger aspects of Israel's ultra-Orthodox, "Chareidi" press, is their determination not to use the word "pig."

We Have A Lot To Learn From The Soviet Jewry Movement

The greatest Jewish success story in a quarter century has become unknown to many in less than a generation. On Dec. 6, 1987, when Soviet leader Mikhail Gorbachev arrived in Washington, more than a quarter-million American Jews – Democrats and Republicans, observant and secular, and individuals representing the entire spectrum of Israeli politics – gathered on the National Mall with a single unified message as old as the Exodus story: “Let our people go!”

Judgment And Reckoning

Question: A basic Jewish belief is that everyone ultimately will be judged. This final judgment is called din v’cheshbon, judgment and reckoning – see Avot 3:1. What is the difference between these two terms? What is din and what is cheshbon?

My Personal Shofar Blower

Rosh Hashanah memories take us to our shuls, homes and families. They remind us of promises made about how we would change our lives and rearrange our priorities. There may also be memories of the delicacies we ate when we were children – the chicken soup, gefilte fish and great desserts. And one sound, the sound of the shofar blasting away with its shrill notes of tekiah, shevarim... and finally the long, very last sound – the tekiah gedolah.

The God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob

Whatever is meant to happen, will happen. The best thing we can do is simply have faith.

U’netanneh Tokef – the Hymn of Israel

Unetanneh Tokef is part of our Israeli heritage. It was written here in the Land of Israel, by Israeli poets, for Israelis.

How our Media Blew a Story

The "Innocence of Muslims" film was a pretext to boost radical Islamists. The media are downplaying this angle, because it suggests that the administration policy toward the Muslim world expressed in the President’s Cairo speech of 2009 is dangerously wrong-headed.

Heroism on a Crowded Planet

Two weeks ago, Nadav Ben Yehuda received from President Shimon Peres the distinguished service award, for rescuing a Turkish climber in the Himalayas. Now Ben-Yehuda...

Exaggerated Reports of Terrorist Incursion into Ginot Shomron

Various news sources are reporting that a terrorist with a knife was captured while trying to squeeze under the fence into the town of Ginot...

Just Say No… to the Nonsense of the iPhone Smashing Rabbis

Rabbi Lior Glazer smashed an iPhone with a hammer in a show of protest. Like virtually every other Rav in the very right-wing Charedi world of Bnei Brak, Glazer blames personal tragedies on technology and not the abnormal psychology of the individual. I am beginning to find that the more I see a story like this, the more I just want to fold up my tent, and go home. No matter how much one wants to be Dan L’Kaf Zechus and judge people and their actions favorably, a story like this comes along which makes it extremely difficult to do so.

It’s My Opinion: Precautions

A dear friend recently shared a family story. Her grandfather had come to America before World War II to test the prospects of relocating his family in the new country.

How to Avoid Being the Next Ponzi Scheme Victim

Sadly, as stated above, ZeekRewards is not a one-off story. Apart from desperation to make more money, another possible reason people fall for these schemes is that the scammers may have gotten smarter. However, there are three basic measures that you could follow to protect yourself from falling victim in a financial scheme.

When the Wall Falls

The ancient synagogue in Meron is located on a hill above the grave of Rabbi Shimon Bar Yochai. Like other Galilean synagogues from the Byzantine era, its entrance faces south, towards Jerusalem. But what makes this synagogue special is a story from its later history.

Postcard from Tel Azekah

In the Judean lowlands, rising above the Elah Valley, lies Tel Azeka (also Azekah) – mentioned numerous times in Biblical texts. Perhaps most famously, it is associated with the story of David and Goliath, which is etched into blocks of stone set by the path up to the top of the Tel, its dramatic ending overlooking the Elah Valley below on one side and views as far as the Mediterranean coast on the other.

Changing Our Image for the Better

Rejecting something with knowledge is one thing, but most Jews in the world today have essentially rejected a life of Jewish observance with very little book or experiential knowledge.

Haredi Soldier that Was Thrown Out of Shul Honored with an Aliyah

The story about the Haredi soldier who was shamed and kicked out of the Toldos Avraham Yitzchak synagogue in Beit Shemesh is not over...

The Lion of Judah Rises

Many Jewish people, including myself, avoid Holocaust movies because it is far too painful to watch the dehumanization of those we love. Still, facing what is painful is an important part of life. “Lion of Judah” is not an easy film to watch, but for the next generation it will be a valuable resource for educating children in a world without survivors. More importantly, it is centered on the incredible, Leo Zisman, the Lion of Judah.

Rabbi in Germany Hospitalized After Brutal Attack

A 53-year old Jewish Rabbi walking with his daughter south of Berlin was attacked by four youths, possibly Arabs. According to reports, one of the...

Everything is Fake Now: The Virtual Reality of Politics

When all the bubbles of rhetoric pop, there are still the hard unpleasant realities to deal with.

Useful Idiocy Not a Valid Legal Defense, Israeli Court Rules

Not only could Rachel Corrie have prevented her own death, but Corrie was used by the anti-Israel International Solidarity Movement.
