Is The Talmud Anti-Christian?

17 Av 5771 – August 17, 2011
Jews have long been accused of studying anti-Christian texts supposedly contained in the Talmud. Such allegations have been made for so many centuries that even some civilized and fair-minded individuals accept them at face value.

29 Shevat 5771 – February 2, 2011
There has been a bizarre, unfortunate and hurtful conversation taking place in the public domain (including every imaginable forum) regarding the halachic viewpoint on brain death.

Celebrating The Death Of The Blue-Hat Jew

29 Tevet 5771 – January 5, 2011
Mordecai Bienstock's Dec. 24 front-page essay - "Death of the Blue-Hat Jew?" - was an interesting, important, and for the most part accurate assessment of what is happening today in Jewish America.

Historic Judaic Event At Sotheby’s

8 Adar 5769 – March 4, 2009
When walking into the main exhibit space at New York's Sotheby's Auction House, one expects to see beautiful rare items for sale. There have been famous auctions of important historic documents, works of art and antiques. Often the exhibit hall has become a sort of museum, with people viewing the sale items while knowing there is no possibility of buying them.

‘Dead’ Mitzvah Acquires New Life

10 Shevat 5769 – February 4, 2009
Techeles, the blue strings the Torah requires Jews to wear on their ritual tzitzis garments, has long been thought of as a "dead" mitzvah. Sometime in the 7th century apparently (possibly due to the Arab conquest of Israel) Jews stopped producing techeles strings and the identity of the chilazon, from which the blue dye originates, was subsequently lost.

Letters To The Editor

18 Sivan 5766 – June 14, 2006
Deja Vu    I once read that a definition of insanity is doing the same thing again and again and expecting different results. So what...

Title: Rashi’s Daughters, Book One – Yocheved

11 Tevet 5766 – January 11, 2006
Ms. Anton's book falls into that genre termed historical fiction, but in this extensive volume of over 360 pages, one can begin to wonder if Ms. Anton had a fly on the wall, so realistic are her characterizations. One could wonder it her real calling is as a "medievalist."

Masterdaf.com – Talmud On The Web

3 Tevet 5765 – December 15, 2004
One of the newest websites to sprout up on the Internet is Masterdaf.com. A few weeks ago, www.masterdaf.com appeared on the Internet as an experimental website, and, as of recently, is fully functional. Masterdaf.com is not just another one of those pointless dot com websites that have nothing to offer or, even worse, try to sell you a worthless product.

Q & A: Effort And Diligence In Torah Study (Part I)

15 Av 5763 – August 13, 2003
QUESTION: I recently read your Daf Yomi column (JP, June 13, 2003), where you cited the Chikrei Lev's comments regarding the standard of 'Sinai' in Torah study, that is, having extensive knowledge of the Torah. He stated that this is not as important today because the Mishna has been recorded.My question is: Was the Mishna not recorded in Rashi's time? Commenting on the first verse in Parashat Bechukotai, Rashi notes (based on Sifra) that "Im bechukotai tele'chu" means"shetih'yu amelim baTorah." In yeshiva I was taught that this means that one must toil with much effort to learn and understand Torah. If so, how can one not be expected to have anextensive knowledge and yet be amel baTorah?Zvi Kirschner(Via Email)
