Why I Love The Far-From-Perfect Israel

With Yom Ha’Shoah being commemorated this week, what lessons did we learn from that tragic era?

Are You Ready to Convert?

If you’re not prepared to have the most meaningful Pesach experience of your life, stop reading this immediately!

From 5 Million More to 1 Million Less

Every ethnic group in America is growing, except the Jews.

Beware the PLAN-demic Jewish Cult

People have been convinced to stop following the Covid safety guidelines. This has resulted in many people getting sick and even dying and I hold this group accountable for their deaths!

How Lucky We are to be Outdoors

The Jewish people went from being an outdoor nation to becoming indoor communities, but the Torah world is definitely returning to the way it was… under the heavens, together as one nation

Crown the King or Corona the King?

I will get right to the point. This Rosh Ha’Shanah, we are focusing on the wrong thing. Instead of worrying how many people are...

From One Mask to Another 

In 1991 while waiting for a SCUD, I didn’t follow the rules and instead drank a BUD… but in 2020 I am ready for the TASK by caring for neighbors and wearing my MASK.

Peace by Piece

Discussion on the Trump Peace Plan reminds me of a multiple-choice test: A) I like the plan B) I do not like the plan C) I'm in the middle D) None of the above. My answer is simple. It is a definite, positive “D” – “None of the above”. Let me explain....

You Can Become Mashiach

For 2,000 years we have been waiting for some hero to ride into town and simply “save the day”. Unfortunately, this is not a Jewish concept.

A Message to American Jews: Don’t Run Away

I cannot stand with those people who are posting – all over social media – that Jews need to “leave America NOW, before it’s too late!”

Why Is Vizhnitz Building In Lakewood?

As a matter of fact, if done right, you could probably wind up moving a lot of the beautiful Jews from Lakewood to Eretz HaKodesh!

Challenging but Not Crazy

Be full of joy – yes, real “simcha” – especially now during these challenging days.

In Israel, Elections Are Just the Beginning

If you think that elections in Israel are finally over… think again, because the fun is just about to begin! The only part that’s over is election day

The Ninja Who Said Sh’ma

Israel is a Jewish state--heck, even our Ninjas are Jewish!

From Hebron to Pittsburgh… to Monsey

Over Shabbat many ex-JDL’ers shared stories about what they did to protect Jews in Philadelphia, Miami, Toronto and even in Ottawa.

I am AGAINST Iron Dome

Better to believe in the 'Iron Fist'

Going the Wrong Way

Make time to learn with your children. Sit with them, not just on Shabbat, but during the week as well and light their neshamas on fire! Make Torah fun for them and show them you genuinely care about their connection to Hashem. Show them how you are growing closer to Hashem and they will want to do the same thing!

You Let Them Vote? So Let Them Win!

The Arabs of Israel must become similar to “green card” holders in the USA. Someone with a USA green card can register his kids in public schools, obtain a driver’s license and even get social security and medicaire benefits. The one thing they cannot do, however, is vote in federal elections.

The Tisha B’Av of Yesterday AND Today

A few years ago, I realized something that changed the way I look at Tisha B’Av and while I can’t say I look forward to Tisha B’Av I started to focus on what I call “The Tisha B’Av of Today”. I focus on the national tragedies of what is happening right now – and what I can do to prevent them from continuing.

Listen to Congresswoman Tlaib

While I am not a member of the Rashida Harbi Tlaib fan club, her twisted logic has actually scored two points in my book, without her even noticing!

Do You Trust The Polls?

Sometimes the longshot does win.

Learned Nothing in 18 Years

, Zehut (“Identity” in English) is a new political party in Israel that was started by myself and a few others, including Moshe Feiglin who is our party’s Chairman. The Zehut plan calls for assisted emigration for all Arabs living in Judea, Samaria and Gaza. Part 1 deals with those who want to leave and offers them full compensation for their homes (if built legally) and financial assistance to take their families out of Israel.

Conquer Gaza Now

Conquer Gaza now! I guarantee you that not one existing member of the Knesset will say those three words, but that is exactly what needs to be done

From Hebron to Pittsburgh

We need to stop being naïve and innocent: anti-Semitism always was and always will be, and in most places across the world it’s getting worse. How ironic that on the very Shabbat that I was in Hebron talking about what was done to defend Jewish lives in America and how we miss Rabbi Kahane’s leadership and couragea terrible massacre occurred to innocent Jews.

We’ve Been “Not Leaving” for a Long Time

We have history on our side. Am Yisrael Chai!!

Baruch Hashem For Jewish Babies!

Israel has the highest rate – per capita – of population growth in the developed world,” he said. “The population in Israel grows by more than 2,000,000 people each decade… Israel averages 3.1 children per family compared to just 1.7 in Western countries… Arabs average 40,000 births a year in Israel while Jews average over 100,000.”

Why all the Miracles?
