Rav Avigdor Miller: His Years as Mashgiach

What follows below should be read in light of what Orthodoxy in the United States was during the forties, fifties and sixties. Orthodoxy certainly looked at least 'externally' different than it does today. In general, Orthodox Jews dressed in a fashion similar to their gentile neighbors. Most Orthodox men were clean shaven.

Rav Avigdor Miller: His Years as Mashgiach

What follows below should be read in light of what Orthodoxy in the United States was during the forties, fifties and sixties.

Mutilating American Civilians In Fallujah As Revenge: The Criminality Of Terrorist ‘Retaliations’

Spain’s Craven Surrender To Terrorism

A dreadful precedent was set recently by Spain. Recoiling in understandable horror from the March 11th Islamist terror attacks on commuter trains in Madrid, the voters in that country promptly ousted a courageous prime minister who had stood shoulder-to-shoulder with the United States in Iraq.

How And Why America’s Christians Must Care For Israel (First Of Two Parts)

The Land and People of Israel are now in great peril. Day after day, hour after hour - almost minute by minute - Jewish men, women and children are fiendishly murdered by Arab terrorists.

Resisting Personhood: The Loneliness Of Cell Phone Addiction

One wonders, what are they talking ABOUT? With WHOM are they talking? WHY are they compelled to be SEEN on the phone? And why are they so undeniably eager that others overhear their conversation?

The People In American Politics

Now that the primary season is seriously upon us, at least one claim is common to all of the candidates. No matter the differences between them, all of the political aspirants exhibit a fundamental populism. "I want to be the people's president" is their shared mantra. Indeed, for any of them to suggest otherwise would be far more than foolish; it would be downright blasphemous.

Understanding The Sharon Plan

Since he was elected three years ago, Israeli Prime Minister Ariel Sharon has expressed skepticism that a permanent settlement with the Palestinians is possible, and has instead sought an interim agreement.

Prosecuting Saddam: Which Paths To Justice?

Under international law, Saddam Hussein is the quintessential Hostes Humani Generis, a "Common Enemy of Mankind." Prosecuting the former Iraqi dictator, therefore, would now appear to be a decidedly simple judicial matter.

Understanding America’s ‘Holiday Period’

As Americans, we Jews share with our fellow countrymen (more or less) certain portions of the annual "holiday period." Extending from the secular holidays of Thanksgiving to New Years, this span imposes on all the United States the breathless rhythm of a machine. Noisy and relentless, it is a rhythm associated in the popular imagination with enhanced reverence and spirituality, but in reality it produces a decidedly opposite effect.

Women’s Issues (Continued from last week)

Special Note: I would like to take this opportunity to express my heartfelt appreciation to the many people who have written to express their good wishes for hatzlacha upon the publication of my new book, "The Committed Marriage." These letters are very meaningful to me and have given me much chizuk. Please forgive me if I cannot respond to each letter individually, but during the coming months I am scheduled to speak throughout the United States and I look forward to greeting you and personally signing your copy of my book.

The Logic Of Rick Santorum

Pennsylvania Senator Rick Santorum's point about a pending Supreme Court case challenging state anti-sodomy laws seems hardly remarkable. The senator said: "If the Supreme Court says that you have the right to consensual [homosexual] sex within your home, then you have the right to bigamy, you have the right to polygamy, you have the right to incest, you have the right to adultery, you have the right to anything."

The Buchanan Files (II)

The support for Nazi war criminals repeatedly voiced by Patrick J. Buchanan (examples of which were offered in this space last week) is but one harsh note in the syndicated columnist's ongoing primal scream against Jews and Israel.

Bitter Old Man(dela)

The Monitor will return to the subject of Joe Lieberman (or Senator Twister, as we've renamed him) next week; after all - and here we're paraphrasing the Sage of Saddle River, the late and lamented Dick Nixon - we will have Joe to kick around for the foreseeable future.
