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
I just wanted to reflect on how devastating this disease has been to the world in general and to our community in particular.
Does SNL owe Israel and the Jewish community an apology?
Leaders of the Conservative Movement keep thinking they are going to innovate themselves out of the mess they got themselves into
Danny Thomas was more than just neutral about the Jewish people. He showed kindness and sensitivity to the plight of a Chasid-- Abraham J. Twerski.
I often wonder if the sages were transported to the world we live in today, would they even recognize it as in any way Jewish? I am not talking about modern Orthodox Jewry. I am talking about the world of Charedim.
If Kushner epitomizes incompetence and mediocrity, we could sure use a lot more of it!
Lipman's critique is limited to Obama’s discussion about Israel. And it is not flattering to say the least. In fact it’s a pretty scathing attack against the former President which might explain some of his policies towards Israel. Especially near the end of his term.
Although we could not attend those weddings, we are so grateful for those blessings.
What is seen in movies and on TV or is heard in song, or reads in books - is all too often emulated by the viewer.
While his words and demeanor hand have been the opposite of our ideals, for Orthodox Jews the President’s policies have been more supportive of them than any other President in American history.

Dn’t believe that Orthodoxy is doomed. We are not all going to have some kind of epiphany and reject our beliefs. Even if our questions and challenges remain unanswered.
Liberal Orthodoxy is now the Torah of the left. It is a doctrine that is constantly being heard on campuses all over the land. A philosophy reflected by the media with little to no opposition.
The pandemic has divided the right wing Yeshiva world even more, in unprecedented ways.
s Biden the lesser of two evils? Probably. But the lesser of two evils is still evil. I am probably one of the very few voters that has not made up their minds yet

Media reactions to Trump's speech show that the they have completely lost their credibility.
How do we educate parents to take their Judaism more seriously and with more enthusiasm so that they can pass that on to their children?
Of course this is not the first time the Charedi world responded to a crisis in order to benefit all of society. (Not just themselves as is often asserted by Charedi critics.) This also happened in Monsey, New York several months ago.
