Hebron’s Beit HaShalom to Return to its Jewish Owners

After an expulsion and a lengthy 5 year battle, the Jerusalem District Court finally made a ruling on "Beit Hashalom" in Hebron. Judge Baram...

When Good People Cheat

Somehow, even though it should be obvious to them that the U.S. is different, they have retained the mindset that it’s OK to cheat “the Goyim” - if they can get away with it. And that is what causes the kind of Chilul HaShem that is happening here. And when the criminal is someone who is otherwise a good person, the Chilul HaShem is even greater.

Egyptian Army Claiming Success in the Sinai, But Most Terrorists Are Still Roaming Free

The Egyptian army has slowed down its all-out attack on terrorist enclaves in the Sinai, several weeks after its initial, aggressive spurt on August 5. The terrorist culprits who murdered 15 Egyptian Border Guards remain at large, and the lack of progress appears rooted in political uncertainty back in Cairo. Here's one unexpected aspect of what was touted as a jihad against the murderers: the Egyptian government is going through unofficial channels, employing negotiators to talk to the Sinai terrorists. This has enraged the secular law and order types at home.

Netanyahu Touts Economic Achievements in Face Global Crisis

At the weekly cabinet meeting, Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said Israel "would need to tighten our belt" because of the global economic crisis, but that the government has taken action to increase social welfare programs and save families money.

Metzitza B’Peh: Infant Russian Roulette

I would be opposed to the government legislating against doing MbP. That it is considered so vital by so large a segment of Jewry combined by the low probability of a child ever contracting herpes moves me to oppose it. In this case I do feel that banning the procedure would be an unconstitutional impediment to freedom of religion. But that is not the law being proposed.

Tunisian Spring Is Turning Into a Jewish Winter

With the new legislation being proposed in the Islamist Ennahda led government, Tunisian Jews may need to rethink their loyalty to a country that clearly no longer wants them. The Tunisian Parliament is working to pass a law that will prohibit the import of religious books, kosher food, and even visitors from Israel.

Wake Up, America, It Ain’t 1895

America, this is not the Victorian age of dark satanic mills and brutal capitalists who laugh while watching children starve.

The Three Worst Pre-Retirement Planning Mistakes

How do you visualize your retirement years? Most people hope that they will finally be able to do the things that they never had time to do during their working years. Very frequently, folks anticipate retirement will be a worry-free time, full of enjoyment, and ample time to spend with family and friends. As a financial adviser, I am often saddened to see retirees facing a different picture.

Jews March against Anti-Semitism in Sweden

A few hundred Jews and non-Jews marched in the southern-Swedish city of Malmo to protest intolerance and anti-Semitic attacks in Sweden. Malmo, with a large...

Informed Consent

Despite the fact that major Poskim spanning several generations declare that the lack of Metzitza B’Peh does not invalidate Bris Milah – some even requiring alternative safer methods - the fact remains that there is a strongly held view mostly among Chasidim that Metzitza B’Peh is an absolute requirement of Bris Milah.

Israeli Government Seeking Bank to Manage Fund Spawning New Immigrant Businesses

Israel's government seeks a commercial bank to grant credit to businesses created by new immigrants and returning residents.

Would Moses Make Aliyah Today?

Moshe Rabainu didn’t say any of the other 515 excuses you usually hear. Just the opposite. Moshe begged again and again and again, 515 prayers, to be granted the incomparable blessing of entering the Land. Today, there are people frummer than Moshe. The Land of Israel isn’t glatt enough for them. Or they don’t like the government. Or they’re worried about finding jobs, as if the hand of Hashem is too short to feed them. They prefer to rely on Uncle Sam instead.

HaRav Yosef Sholom Elyashiv, ZT”L

The Jewish Press joins Klal Yisrael in mourning the death last week of HaRav Yosef Sholom Elyashiv, widely recognized as the Torah world’s foremost authority on Jewish law for nearly three decades – a scholar who set the tone and direction for resolving its most complex issues and who in many ways defined an era.

The Chareidi Gush Katif

Legislation is being used to force a situation onto a significantly large minority sector that disagrees with the decision. Will it once again end in disaster for everyone?

A Country of Free Men or Free Things?

There's a big difference between a free country and a country of free things. You can have one or the other, but not both. A free country isn’t obsessed with free riders; only a country of free things obsesses over making everyone pay their fair share to the people who want the free things. The rugged individualism of Colonial America has given way to stifling crowds, co-dependent on each other, clutching at each other’s wallets, crying, “Take from him and give to me.”
