Highland Park is heavily Jewish. It is estimated that Jews comprise between 30 and 50 percent of the population.
A view from America...

The coach was asking only for a private moment to take a knee and express gratitude to God on the gridiron after a game.
But I am just tired of all the Jewish blood being shed and the attendant suffering of their loved ones.
I would have been much happier if had chosen her on the basis of her qualifications, judicial temperament, and pristine character. Which she clearly has in spades.
The point here is that both of these 2 major Jewish denominations do not resemble anything close to how our forefathers lived even as recently as a couple of hundred years ago. Whereas Orthodoxy has been far more of a continuum.
Israel has a right – an obligation – to protect its people. Whatever it takes. If that means using even harsher measures than they are now, so be it
You would think that we are all on the brink of World War III.
Which political philosophy is closest to Judaism, liberal or conservative?
the Islamic Jihad terrorists that ambushed Yehuda were caught. They will now face Israeli justice. But that will hardly comfort the bereaved. His loss will be felt for a lifetime by all that were close to this gentle and kind man.
Though I definitely do not agree with everything the government wants to do, I continue to resent calling them anti religious. They are not
Civil Rights Today does NOT = CRT-Critical Race Theory
Is funding Reform Judaism whose definition of a Jew is counter to Halacha even according to Conservative Judaism - a good idea? Do we want to increase the number of Israelis that will be defined as Jewish only by this one denomination?
"What is, Being TOO pro-Israel"
I thought that this is a new low for the Democratic Party. Israel no longer enjoyed universal support in congress. That support now existed only among Republicans.
I too have questions. And like many, I too have not found satisfactory answers to them all. And yet I remain true to my faith.

Both Pfizer AND Moderna have said that we will all need a 3rd booster shot before the winter.
If we can’t make them realize the folly of their ways, we can at least try and stop them from profiting from it
The question is why? Why is the Taliban so successful? This brings me back to extremism.
Bet Shemesh Mayor Aliza Bloch has fired the Charedi members of her ruling coalition.
It’s difficult to place any kind of silver lining on this event. People are still suffering...There is no sliver lining for them. But I believe that a Kiddush HaShem should be made public. There are two of them I’d like to highlight.
I see no difference between Hitler and Raisi. Other than the fact that Raisi sees eradicating Israel a religious obligation. Even if means mass murdering Jews. In my view this makes him more dangerous that Hitler
There are others on Biden’s foreign policy team that also hostile to Israel.
What about religious issues? Clearly some of their coalition partners are not too thrilled about religion playing any part in government decisions. They see Charedim as an impediment to that.
So I am not against having this event every Lag B’Omer. I am only against having crowds of this magnitude there. The chances of a tragedy like this happening again can be avoided or at least minimized.
This is no way to run a country. True leaders need to be color blind. You look for the best people and hire them
How does antisemitism fit into all this? Unfortunately antisemitism is becoming acceptable as part of the ‘woke’ culture
Israel is both a democracy and a Jewish state. But by their decision, the Supreme Court has moved the needle. They apparently place more importance on being a democracy than they do on being a Jewish state
