Whose Values Do They Represent?

I don’t know that the majority of the Haredi world actually considers memorials to IDF fallen soldiers to be idolatry.

Can Women say Kaddish?

I do not see this as a feminist issue at all. This is a human issue.

David Petraeus and the Biblical Lessons of Why Men Want Two Women

When Jacob is fooled into marrying Leah, he accepts her as a partner and eventually the mother of his children. But his yearning is for Rachel.

Yaakov Avinu’s Delayed Marriage

The Rambam writes in the 10th perek of Hilchos Ishus (halacha 13-14) that if a man marries a woman, he is obligated to have sheva berachos for seven days. If one marries several women at once, he must have separate sheva berachos for each one for seven days – consecutively. The reason for this is because we cannot mix one simcha with another simcha.

A Border Policeman was stabbed by a female Arab assailant in eastern Jerusalem near the Shalem police station. He is lightly injured. Other police nearby...

Whose Watchdogs Are They?

It is morning and my car glides down the mountains of the Shomron into the smog of greater Tel Aviv. Another crazy day of running in the primaries is about to begin. My cell phone rings. A young, determined voice is on the other end.

Petraeus: Did a Great Man Have to Fall?

Petraeus seems to have resigned over marital infidelity. And if so, did he have to leave his position? Why, because he displayed personal weakness? But this was a public, as opposed to a private, position. And years of counseling unfaithful husbands and wives has taught me that private failings do not necessarily indicate public faithlessness.

Haredim Throw Rocks, Eggs, at ‘Abomination Apartment’

Pashkvils (warning posters) were spread around the neighborhood, criticizing women wearing tight clothes, calling them "animals." According to the website Hadrei Haredim, the woman in question is being accused of luring young Haredi women to her path.

Yad Hashem – Shown With A Foot!

As the expression goes, “Hashem fir zich der velt” – Hashem orchestrates all the events that occur in the world. Most of what Hashem does is hidden from us. However, on occasion something happens in such an open way, one would have to be totally oblivious to the world around him to not see the powerful display of Yad of Hashem.

Can an Orthodox Jewish Woman Have it All?

As I began reading an article in the Forward by Aurora Mendelsohn about whether a Jewish woman can have it all (meaning a career and an observant family) I received a call from my daughter about an article in the Chicago Tribune about one woman who does have it all.

An Open Letter to Religious Zionist Rabbis

Dear Rabbi: With elections approaching in Israel, I am searching for a religious political party for which to vote. When I think about voting for Shas, I remember their support for Oslo, the surrender of parts of Eretz Yisrael, giving rifles to our enemies, and the terrible sea of Jewish blood that was spilled after the Oslo Accords were signed. That is not the Torah I am searching to find.

Is Half a Loaf Really Better than No Loaf?

I do not question Rabbi Zev Farber’s sincerity. I even applaud his resolve to right what he sees to be wrong in the way we practice Judaism today. But I do not agree with him at all on the way to do it. In a recent article on Morethodoxy, Rabbi Farber suggests that we change the paradigm with respect to a woman’s role in Judaism. His contention is that women are (at best) inadvertently ignored and mistreated vis-à-vis their public religious personae. Their current place in the synagogue is where this is mostly felt.

Bereshit: The Triple Birth of Woman

In this week's Torah portion, within the majesty and mystery of creation, the woman emerges in three successive stages.

Bereishis: Appreciating The Good

Adom HaRishon was given one mitzvah: not to eat from the Eitz HaDas. When he transgressed it, Hashem gave him the opportunity to do teshuvah. Not only did Adom not repent, he played the blame game – “It was that woman that You gave to me. You gave her to me as a helpmate and she turned out to be my ruination.”

Sukkot, The GPS And Mind/Body Interventions

I sit here mulling over the results of my latest PET Scan (Positron Emission Tomography), a nuclear medicine imaging technique which produces a three-dimensional image or picture (in color) of my innards and of the latest actions of the “bad buggars” that have invaded me (as I live through quite a serious case of cancer).

Stories of Yom Kippur

On Erev Yom Kippur, the Gaon Rav Atshal of Frankfurt (Tifereth Avraham) would usually permit the eating of every doubtful fowl, which was brought before him to decide. He would make all the doubtful cases kosher.

Miriam Ben-Porat: A Woman of ‘Firsts’

Miriam Scheinsohn was born on April 26, 1918, in Vitebsk (Belorussia), the youngest of eight children (she had three sisters and four brothers). Soon after Miriam’s birth the family moved to Kovno (Kaunas) in Lithuania, where her parents owned a textile factory.

A World Untouched by Civilization
