Thomas Friedman And White Supremacists

Dreidels And Daily Miracles: What a Modest Spinning Top Can Teach Us

What does it take to experience a miracle? Nothing more than to live a life with eyes wide open. The truth is, we live in an age of miracles and wonder. Does that sound like a ridiculous statement to you - to characterize the age of the Internet, gene therapy, and biological science as an age of miracles? For many people, the idea of "miracles" comes straight from Medieval times. They view miracles as fantasy and "anti-science."

Spinning History

"Big Town Chronicles/The Daily News History of Modern New York" is a regular feature in the New York Daily News and often provides interesting, nostalgic glimpses back into New York City's recent past. A wide variety of topics have found their way into the column, usually with little attendant controversy. So we were shocked by what appeared on Monday October 8, 2001 under the title, Hasidim. December 1978-February 1979. Not only was there nothing at all of the rich Hasidic life in New York, but the article was downright nasty. With our emphasis, here are some excerpts:

Roger Cohen Digs Himself Deeper

A few weeks back (Feb. 27) the Monitor characterized a Feb. 23 piece by New York Times columnist Roger Cohen on Iranian Jews as reminiscent of “the naïve and insidious reporting by such legendary Times dupes as Walter Duranty and Herbert Matthews, whose whitewashing, respectively, of the Soviet Union in the 1920s and ‘30s and Fidel Castro in the 1950s will stand forever as monuments to the argument that the self-described ‘paper of record’ is often anything but.”

Tell Your Children The Truth This Pesach

It is our duty as Jewish parents to explain to our children that we don’t belong in gentile lands. Tell them the truth. Leave them with the message the Sages wanted to linger in our minds after the Seder: “Next year in Jerusalem”!

Obama’s – And America’s – Journey

The Greek philosopher Heraclitus believed that reality is ever in flux. “You cannot step into the same river twice,” he taught, emphasizing that the only constant is change.

The World’s Best Wines Are Produced In… Israel? – An Interview with Psagot CEO...

Don’t Diagnose President Trump – Respond to Him

I find it unprofessional, unethical and absurd for any mental health professional to offer a diagnosis or psychiatric prediction regarding President Donald Trump.

Diplomatic Sanctions Won’t Work For Iran

There is no easy answer to the question of ongoing Iranian nuclearization. All options are unappealing, and all will have very substantial costs. For the moment, diplomacy still seems to be the preferred path to crisis remediation, but only because polite conversation and empty threats protect all parties from taking easily identifiable risks.

Bereishis And Science – No Conflict!

We do not need to question whether radioactive decay or the speed of light remained constant throughout history. We do not need to extrapolate from an idea broached by the Rambam that was rejected by others.

Standing On The Threshold

Why is this night different from all other nights? On all other nights we prayed for redemption but our exile continued. On this night our prayers may be answered.

Human Chain

Two events that seemed to fit the days before Tisha B'Av happened recently.

Why Can’t People Stop Talking In Shul?

There is a commonsense understanding — nothing to do with religion — that a mature grownup should not speak in certain settings. There is not a more inconsiderate, unfeeling, and narcissistic form of conduct than sitting in shul and talking idly while others are trying to connect with their davening and hearts.

Gaza War A Cold Dose Of Reality

The ongoing war between Israel and the Hamas terrorist organization brings front and center the nature of this conflict: Palestinian unwillingness to accept the permanent presence of a Jewish state in the Middle East.

Islam and its Infidels

Islamism represents the transformation of Islamic faith into a political ideology.
