Leiby’s Legacy

10 Av 5771 – August 10, 2011
Note to readers: When I heard the words, "You give us seven minutes and we'll give you the world" on the radio at 6:30 a.m. on Wednesday morning, July 13, I never thought that what I was about to hear would shake me to the core and change my world forever. I could not come to myself - and I'm sure most of klal Yisraelcouldn't either. So I sat down and the following poem spilled forth. Because it is written in a simple style, simple enough for any child to understand, I hope it does not seem to trivialize what happened; it is just my humble reaction to an earth-shattering event.

The Most Important Things In Life Are Invisible

7 Iyyar 5770 – April 21, 2010
"There is a thin line between love and hate," the saying goes. Two opposite emotions, yet one can so easily transmute into the other.

Rookie Director Honored For Religious-Themed Israeli TV Drama

20 Tevet 5770 – January 6, 2010
Jerusalem- When Israel's version of the Emmy Awards were announced in late 2009, the mainly secular entertainment establishment received an unexpected jolt as "Srugim," an off-beat series about the trials and tribulations of religious singles in Jerusalem was tabbed "Best Drama" on Israeli TV.

Punish Us All

Every time a Muslim terrorist commits an atrocity, the insane reaction of our liberal societies is to punish everyone collectively. Several years ago, a terrorist tried to detonate an explosive hidden in his shoe. As a result, every airline passenger is now required to remove his shoes and pass them through an x-ray device. It is common in airports to see long lines of passengers walking barefoot or in their stocking feet, queued up and waiting to have their shoes checked. Instead of forcing all Muslims to fly barefoot, every single passenger is inconvenienced to avoid racial profiling.

If You Belittle Your Kids They Will Be Little

20 Elul 5769 – September 9, 2009
The new school year is starting and parents across the board are busy getting their children ready for school. New clothing, books and study aids like calculators have been bought and bus service and car pools organized. As the year progresses parents will do whatever it takes to help ensure their offspring do well in their Limudei Kodesh and secular studies, including helping with homework or even enlisting a tutor.

Blossoming Into Torah: An Interview With TV’s Mayim Bialik

13 Elul 5769 – September 2, 2009
Many of us who are children of the '90s - or who had children in the '90s - remember the popular television show "Blossom," which starred Mayim Bialik as a teenager confronting, and trying to survive, adolescence. After years away from Hollywood, Bialik now finds herself back in the spotlight with multiple guest-starring roles on cable and network TV shows. But there's another, more important part of her life to which Bialik has returned.

Fact Or Fiction?

29 Nisan 5769 – April 22, 2009
As the Monitor noted a few years back in a column that drew more than the usual number of reader responses, there’s nothing worse than finding an error of fact in a nonfiction book. It makes the reader wonder whether finishing it is even worth the effort.

How Community Expectations Influence Your Reality

7 Nisan 5769 – April 1, 2009
Doubt is a very powerful force. It slowly erodes what we know to be true. It can undermine our self-confidence and even change our reality. Doubt comes from many sources and very often in the form of innocuous comments from friends and family.

Free Gilad Shalit

29 Adar 5769 – March 25, 2009
More than 1,000 days have passed since the unprovoked abduction of a Gilad Shalit, a young Israeli soldier, by the Hamas terrorist government of Gaza. Unlike the Arab terrorists being held in a "country club" atmosphere of the Israeli jail system, with TV, library facilities, exercise rooms and other amenities, Gilad is being held in primitive conditions. He is not even allowed to meet with Red Cross representatives.

Loud, Obnoxious And Shallow: Hollywood’s Portrayal of Jewish Women

15 Adar 5769 – March 11, 2009

Midnight In The Emergency Room

13 Kislev 5769 – December 10, 2008

How The Media Spun Campaign ’08

7 Heshvan 5769 – November 5, 2008
Based on her interview with Sen. Joe Biden, we may assume that WFTV (Orlando) Anchor Barbara West: 1. Did not graduate from a school of communications, 2. Will never receive an award from the Society of Professional Journalists, 3. Is unlikely to be employed by The New York Times in the foreseeable future, and 4. Will soon be working with Joe the Plumber, installing bathroom fixtures.

A True American Hero

9 Tishri 5769 – October 8, 2008
Those of us who grew up when television was considered kosher in its black and white days remember "The Stratton Story," a 1949 movie that aired often on TV in the '50s starring Jimmy Stewart as Chicago White Sox pitcher Monty Stratton, who lost a leg in an off-season hunting accident in 1938 near his Greenville, Texas home.
