Purim: The Deeply Anti-Progressive Jewish Holiday

Tweet Yesterday was the holiday of Purim. And it was no accident that in 2015, Benjamin Netanyahu referenced Purim when delivering his powerful address to the U.S. Senate in an unsuccessful bid to curb Obama’s legitimization of a nuclear Iran. Purim is an old ( 5th century B.C.E.) but painfully familiar story: A Jew-hater named […]

Antiochus Obama

Tweet Ever since Obama was elected we have said that he is a classic leftist Jew-hater. Obama spent 20 years as a faithful member of Jeremiah Wright’s church because Wright, a proud and vocal Jew-hater, articulated everything Obama felt: hatred of America, hatred of Jews. Obama’s envoy in the UN, Samantha Power, has a history […]

Jews and Guns

Tweet Before our son Ariel Chaim ZT”L passed away in 2003 at the age of twenty-two, he and I spent a good deal of time discussing the Second Amendment, the Right to Keep and Bear Arms. Ariel was amazed that so many American Jews–overwhelmingly liberal and secular–aligned themselves with the advocates of gun control, in reality a […]

The Story of Ruth Reenacted 100 Years Ago in Israel

Tweet The Jewish holiday of Shavuot,  Pentecost, begins this coming Saturday night.  The holiday has several traditional names: Shavuot, the festival of weeks, marking seven weeks after Passover; Chag HaKatzir, the festival of reaping grains, and Chag HaBikkurim, the festival of first fruits.  Shavuot, according to Jewish tradition, is the day the Children of Israel accepted the Torah […]

And Then There Was Trump

Tweet When there were seventeen Republicans running to carry the GOPs standard against the Democrats, I supported Carly Fiorino. When Carly suspended her campaign, I shifted to Marco Rubio. When Rubio lost his home state of Florida and dropped out of the race, I supported Ted Cruz. People kept asking me, what happens if Trump […]

And it is no accident that Benjamin Netanyahu referenced Purim when delivering a powerful address to the U.S. Senate in an unsuccessful bid to curb Obama’s legitimization of a nuclear Iran. Purim is an old ( 5th century B.C.E.) but agnonizingly familiar story: A Jew-hater named Haman hatches […]

Chanukah 2015, The Same Bloody Ground

Tweet A Chanukah Message from Simon the Maccabee: “We have not taken a foreign land, nor did we take the property of others — for this is the inheritance of our fathers, which was for some time unjustly possessed by our enemies. But we, having the opportunity, returned to us the inheritance of our fathers.” […]

Friday Photos: In Every Generation

Tweet On Passover, Jews around the world recite a passage from the Haggadah that strikes a note both poignant and defiant. In every generation they [our enemies] rise up against us to destroy us, but the Holy One Blessed Be He saves us from their hands. But Judaism does not place faith in faith alone. […]

Friday Photos: Announcing a New Jewish Holiday Edition

Tweet Jewish humor is filled with self-deprecating observations. We poke fun at our peculiar foibles, and frequently address our greatest anxieties — intermarriage, Jew-hatred, weight-gain — with a take-no-prisoners attitude. If you want to know how Jews are really feeling about something or someone, pay attention to the jokes Jews tell each other. A few […]

Purim: The Non-Progressive Jewish Holiday

Tweet Today is the holiday of Purim. And it is no accident that Benjamin Netanyahu referenced this Jewish holiday when delivering his powerful and historic address to the U.S. Senate the other day. It’s an old ( 5th century B.C.E.) but agnonizingly familiar story: A Jew-hater named Haman hatches a plan to annihilate the Jewish […]

Rabbi Chaplain Abraham Avrech, First Yahrzeit

Tweet My father, Rabbi Chaplain Abraham Avrech passed away on March 15, 2014, which in the Jewish calendar translates into the 13th of Adar. Thus, this is the first Yahrzeit, memorial, without my father’s physical presence in this world. My father was 94 years old. He is gone, but he is certainly not forgotten. During […]

The Old-New Chanukah War 2014

Tweet On December 5, 2012, The New York Times filed this story: Cheering U.N. Palestine Vote, Synagogue Tests Its Members. Congregation B’nai Jeshurun, a large synagogue on the Upper West Side of Manhattan, is known for its charismatic rabbis, its energetic and highly musical worship, and its liberal stances on social causes. But on Friday, […]
