Nero Fiddles While Rome Burns

I gotta get this off my chest. I do not recall a worse economy in my lifetime than the one we are now experiencing. The stock market is crashing. Retirement funds (401Ks and IRAs) are shrinking.

Idealism Delayed is not Idealism Denied

Those that question why Israel built a wall separating the West Bank territories from Israel’s pre 67 borders, need look no further than the brutal murder last Thursday of 25 year old Kollel student → Read More

How Would MLK See Civil Rights Today?

If I had to point to one thing that I believe divides this country the most, it would be ‘Critical Race Theory’ (CRT). A theory which has gained currency ever since the Black Lives Matter moveme → Read More

Is There Still Bipartisan Support for Israel?

I was shocked. When the one billion dollar funding for Israel’s Iron Dome defense system was dropped from Congress’s comprehensive spending bill because of the threat by some House Democrats o → Read More

Emes Ve-Emunah: Why I Am a Jew

One of the great conundrums of life for me is, Why Judaism? What is it about my Emunah - my faith that makes me so committed to it? It might surprise people to know that like others who ask serious qu → Read More

Kiddush HaShem in the Midst of a Tragedy

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. → Read More

An Unprecedented Tragedy in Israel

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. → Read More
