Can Biden Reverse Course and Abandon Obama’s Policies?

After Afghanistan, the administration may double down on Iran appeasement in pursuit of a dubious diplomatic triumph. Seeking to expand the Abraham Accords would be a better idea.

Prime Minister Naftali Bennett’s statement deserves support, but it will have diplomatic and political repercussions.

A D.C. rally against Jew-hatred struck many of the right notes, but the poor turnout, combined with obvious divisions between left and right, illustrates the dismal Jewish crisis response.

Iran’s Brooklyn Terror Tests Biden

If the administration continues pursuing appeasement despite the latest evidence of Iranian intentions, it guarantees that efforts to restrain the regime after sanctions are dropped will flop.

Prioritize Prayer, not Politics

When everything public is seen through a partisan lens, tragedies like the Surfside disaster still bring communities together and remind us about what is most important.

The Lessons Menachem Begin Left Us

As Israel prepares for a change in leadership, a new documentary film on one of the country’s founding fathers is a reminder of what his successors can learn from him.

What Can a Skeptical World Expect from Naftali Bennett?

The future of the “government of change” is still in doubt, and its prospects are dubious. But despite the political attacks, the prospective new prime minister has a lot to offer.

Jewish groups are having trouble confronting “Zionphobic” violence because it offends those who think they have a right to foment anti-Semitism and deny Israel’s right to exist.

Can’t Detach Leftwing Hatred for Israel from anti-Semitism

Anti-Zionists claim that violence against Jews discredits their cause; however, delegitimizing Jewish rights encourages hatred, whether or not leftists are willing to admit it.

Can a Disaster Breed Jewish Unity or Widen the Communal Breach?

Solidarity with the victims of the Mount Meron tragedy is a sign of hope. Still, the impulse to turn it into a political issue and cast blame on the ultra-Orthodox may prove more powerful.

A “bail reform” law led to the release of violent criminals who struck again and now to that of a man who vandalized synagogues. And still, the ADL and Jewish left are silent.

Note to Jewish Groups: Work for Justice, NOT Toxic Race Theories

Americans were relieved by the verdict in the Derek Chauvin trial. Still, the JCPA and ADL shouldn’t join with partisans and radicals to exploit it to push a racialist agenda that hurts Jews.

Who’s REALLY for ‘Replacement Theory?’ White Supremacists or Liberals?

The ADL wants Tucker Carlson fired for racism. Carlson says his views on immigration are the same as Israel’s. Why both assertions are wrong.

A misleading article about historians and Polish complicity has exacerbated a controversy that distracts us from the need to fight contemporary anti-Semitism rather than relitigate old battles.

How Many American Jews are There? Does it Really Matter?

A new population study claims that there are 7.6 million Jews in the United States. But is it including people like the vice president’s stepdaughter who say they aren’t Jewish?

Does the Haggadah Teach the Meaning of Life?

A new guide to the book we read at Passover seders offers some food for thought about why there’s more to the holiday than a ritual meal.

Israeli Democracy is Still not in Danger

Why do Jewish Groups no Longer Care about ‘Kids in Cages’?

Liberals advocate for immigration policies that are creating a humanitarian disaster, yet show their partisanship by not protesting measures they denounced when Trump was in office.

Religious Pluralism won’t be Achieved in the Courts

An Israeli Supreme Court ruling recognizing non-Orthodox conversions is more symbolism than substance. The fight to curb the power of the rabbinate must be resolved at the ballot box.
