Can Women Serve In The IDF According To Halacha?

Rav Shlomo Aviner has stated that women are not permitted to serve in the army just like they are not permitted to violate Shabbat.

One Torah – One People

There is not an iota of real difference between the way Torah is studied in the Beis HaMedrash of YU and the way it is studied at any other Yeshiva. It is more than time that Modern Orthodoxy is treated like an equal among equals and given the same prominence they give those to their right.

At Any Price

Well. well, well; then it's decided. All peace-loving people in Israel simply must vote the current government out and replace it with one that Ms. Omar will be much happier with. She did not say exactly which party she does embrace and endorse.

Just Another Day

There is no escape from those who would kill us, but that we kill them first. The failure to understand that is the failure to survive.

Knowing Right From Right

What sort of government do I want? How far to the right does my ideology go? But just how far right they go, is always a question for me.

Drama (not so much) and Democracy

The more Netanyahu associates himself with Trump, the more Trump’s enemies become our enemies. And when they ultimately gain power, they will attempt to reverse Trump’s policies, including – especially – his pro-Israel ones.

Have You Forgotten 9/11/01 The Day That Changed The World ?

Just about everyone remembers where they were when they found out about the attacks on 9/11/01. But too many Americans including too many of the leaders of the Democratic Party have forgotten the collective national pain, the reasons we were attacked, and desire a return to the appeasement that made the terrorists strong.

Ten Minutes of anti-Israel Propaganda

The flight of several hundred thousand Arabs in 1948 was primarily a consequence of decisions made by Palestinian leaders and elites, as well as the leaders of the Arab states. We don’t have anything to do tshuva for.

Will Otzma Yehudit Pass The Threshold? An Interview with Dr. Adva Biton

Otzma Yehudit is not afraid to say things in a clear voice – just like I try to do – so I found my place in that party.

Loyal and Disloyal Jews

Democrats have made it clear that if they win the presidential election, they will restore the flow of cash to the terrorists. Joe Biden vowed to restore “security” funding to the Palestinian Authority. Senator Kirsten Gillibrand promised to restore the aid programs that “President Trump has cut.” Andrew Yang called for restoring aid to the terrorists. Senator Bernie Sanders and Peter Buttigieg went further, threatening aid to Israel. None of them condemned Rina’s murder.

Donald Trump, Disloyal Jews and Identity Politics

Pres. Trump said two words no one wanted to hear, pointing out a situation many recognize but most are afraid to mention: Disloyal Jews. With a piercing, instinctive understanding, Trump put a spotlight on an identity crisis in the Jewish community.

Questions People Ask Rabbis

As a rabbi, I’ve heard my fair share of interesting questions…

Environmentalists Killed More Europeans Than Islamic Terrorists Did

Air conditioning and heating are not how we change the climate. They’re how we cope with it.

The Hijabs of Our Banana Republic

And then Banana Republic debuts four hijabs and it’s cultural appropriation even though Islam appropriates cultures the way hot dog eating contest winners go through sauerkraut and brats. Huge chunks of the Koran are appropriated from Judaism and Christianity like a little kid trying to write his own comic book by taking all the best parts of all the books and movies he saw and mixing them up.

No, it wasn’t Antisemitic

Trump is comfortable with nationalism, which American liberals have long since rejected, and it makes sense to him that members of a people would naturally want to stick up for their ancestral homeland, even while preferring to live somewhere else.

Trump’s Right: Jews Who Vote Democrat Show ‘Lack Of Knowledge Or Great Disloyalty’ To...

What Rep. Tlaib Forgot To Mention: 212 Killed – 1,149 Wounded

Monday’s Tlaib/Omar presser was a horrible display. Two members of Congress were expressing their Antisemitism in public, aired live by major media, their hate speech supported by their fellow Democrats. Although as far as acting goes one of the two members of Congress had provided an award-winning performance, but she left out one important point...

Larry’s Letters: Message Sent to Numerous NBC Executives

This is not the first time MSNBC chose to offer negative opinions on Israel. This leads me to wonder if MSNBC’s editorial policy is to represent the interest of the Palestinian Arabs with little desire to provide Israel’s position

“You DON’T Have a Right to Exist. May We Come in?”

Despite what the critics say, Netanyahu’s decision doesn’t seem to have been ideological – although I think it should have been – but rather a simple balancing of the likely consequences of the options available.

In 5 States, 1 in 5 Prisoners are Muslims

As the debate over immigration continues, we must ask ourselves difficult questions about the price we are willing to pay to welcome in one particular group without caring about the cost to ourselves.
