A Students Primer: 5 Steps to Surviving an Extended Stay in Israel

By following these helpful tips, you will be one-step ahead and prepared for an exciting, life-changing experience in Israel.

The Jews Of Harbin

Earlier this month, Israeli Prime Minister Olmert went on a political mission to China and was greeted with much pomp and ceremony.

New Caribbean Synagogue Joins One Of The Oldest In The Hemisphere

WILLEMSTAD, CURACAO---It's not everyday, or every year, or every decade, or even every century, that a beautifully-designed, 180-seat, air-conditioned synagogue rises in the Caribbean, let alone a modern Orthodox one.

Lake George And Gore Mountain

The Lake George area has a historical depth to it, is filled with natural beauty and has a whole host of fun for those with an adventurous streak.

Shalom From Kenya

Jews integrated into life in Kenya to such an extent that in 1955, Israel Somen, who had worked extensively on the Lunatic Line (the colloquial name for the railway that was forged madly through forests and ravines, troops of tribesmen and lions) was elected the mayor of Nairobi.

Gamla – The Masada Of The North

We are all well familiar with the dramatic last stand of the Jewish rebels on Masada against the Roman Legions after the destruction of the Second Bais HaMikdash. But according to Josephus Flavious (Yosef ben Matityahu) a very similar drama took place on another isolated mountain in the very north of the country.

Pennsylvania Labor Day Trips

If you're looking to sneak in one last day trip before the kids start yeshiva, then the obvious place to look is Pennsylvania, filled with numerous kid-friendly theme parks. Two great ones for all children under the teenage years are Sesame Place in Langhorne, and Dutch Wonderland in Lancaster.

The Suspension Bridge Over Nachel HaBesor

Although there are more direct and faster routes to Beer Sheva and Eilat and all the sites and towns in-between, the Basor River is one of the beauties of the Negev that defiantly justifies a diversion.

Feast Your Mind, Soul And Body On Rechov HaRav Kook

"I didn't choose the landscape; it chose me."

Emergency Landing Grounds 787s in Japan

Two major Japanese airlines grounded their Boeing 787 Dreamliner airplanes after one was forced to make an emergency landing due to battery problems and a burning smell in the cockpit.

New Hampshire

New Hampshire, also known as the Granite State, borders Massachusetts, Vermont, Maine and Quebec. It is a state with impressive mountains affording beautiful views, flowing rivers and magnificent waterfalls. New Hampshire is famous as a prime vacation area both in the summer and the winter. Although it is over a five-hour drive from most places in New York, there is a kosher hotel and several minyanim in the summertime.

Purim In Hong Kong

A traditional Purim in Hong Kong requires an obligatory visit to Pottinger Street in the bustling Central District. Also known locally as Stone Step Street, Pottinger Street is more of a steep, irregularly paved pedestrian stone path (with steps too small for Western feet) than a street. My children run ahead up the stone slabs as I carefully balance my size nine feet on the thin, uneven stairs. My five year old stumbles but quickly recovers and catches up to the big kids.

Chol HaMoed Walking Tour

We will start our tour at Agripas No. 12, exactly where the first round stone pot-plant of pansies stands, on the same side of Binyan Klal, but walking towards King George Street and opposite the traffic circle. Entering HaRav Chaim Elboher Alley, we find ourselves in Even Yisrael.

The Small Wall

The Kotel Hakatan is the “little sister” of the well-known Western Wall, and is reminiscent of the photos and drawings of the way the Kotel looked before 1948. It is located 200 yards further north of the Kotel, and is on the same level as Har HaBayit (the Temple Mount). Since its plaza is much narrower, and the majority of the wall is underground (thereby concealing much of its height), the Small Wall is less impressive than the Western Wall.

Finding Jews In Australia’s Outback: An Interview with Rabbi Yossi Rodal, Head of Chabad...

We try to visit them once a year although obviously it is challenging to visit those living in the Outback.

On The Way With New York Waterway

On a beautiful sunny day in the middle of August, my husband and I took an incredible boat ride around Manhattan Island.

Kutshers And The New Kosher Catskills

For Yossi Zablocki, Kutsher's was supposed to be there forever, as permanent as the mountains along Route 17. It was after all, for him and many others like him, much more than just a place to camp out for the summer and the holidays. It was an entire world - a brighter, greener, more tranquil world than the one he passed through each day as an attorney in lower Manhattan.

The Stones, Fauna And Flora Of The Kotel

When we come to the Kotel we may be so engrossed in our tefillos that we don’t notice the numerous birds flying close by and the plants growing out of her stones. But the Kotel—spiritual home to millions — is built of stones that serve as the physical home for various animals and plants.

Coming Home To Touro: Our Colonial Legacy

It's a story that's familiar to every student of American history. In 1620, the Pilgrims fled England aboard the Mayflower and founded the Plymouth Colony in Massachusetts, where they could freely practice their religion. A little known, but equally significant, historical event took place just a few years later in 1658, when another group seeking a haven from religious persecution sailed into Newport Harbor in Rhode Island and founded Congregation Jeshuat Israel.

Enjoying The Good Life In West Palm Beach

Would you believe it if I told you that you could purchase a two-bedroom, two- bathroom condo complete with central a/c, a large kitchen, and a living room with an enclosed porch in a burgeoning Jewish community – incredibly priced from just $35,000? Well, you can.
