Purim: The Deeply Anti-Progressive Jewish Holiday

Today is the holiday of Purim. It is 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 Haman hatches […]

Rabbi Chaplain Abraham Avrech, Fourth Yahrtzeit

My father, Rabbi Chaplain Abraham Avrech, z’l, passed away on March 15, 2014, which the Jewish calendar translates into the 13th of Adar. Thus, last night — Jewish holidays begin after sundown — commenced the fourth Yahrzeit, memorial, without my father’s physical presence in this world. My father was 94 years old. He is gone, but […]

Jews and Guns

I am republishing this entry, with some edits, because after the Parkland atrocity—a massive failure of local and federal government and law enforcement at every level—the antigun hysteria of the left, with their photogenic high school commissars in the vanguard, presents a danger to the Second Amendment. Make no mistake about it; the left plans to […]

Friday Photos: There is No End of History Edition

Benjamin Netanyahu, in his devastating deconstruction of disastrous Obama’s Iranian policy was, in spite of Obama’s unprecedented assault on the Jewish State’s Prime Minister, a Churchillian attempt to preserve Western civilization against the onslaught of IslamoNazis. Obama’s White House would have you believe that Obama’s problem is a personal beef with Bibi. In fact, Obama’s […]

A Duck Dynasty Purim!

The 2014 Purim celebration begins on Saturday night March 15 and continues through the 16th. On the holiday of Purim, Jews listen to a reading of Megillat Esther, send gifts of food to friends and neighbors, donate to the poor, attend a festive meal where we make a l’chaim—“Genocide averted, let’s eat!”—and frequently wear witty […]

Purim: The Non-Progressive Jewish Holiday

Today is the Fast of Purim which commemorates Esther’s three days of fasting in preparation for her meeting with King Ahasuerus. It’s an old ( 5th century B.C.E.) but agnonizingly familiar story: An intolerant Jew-hater named Haman hatches a plan to annihilate the Jewish people in the ancient kingdom of Persia.

Most of the Jews in this multicultural Persian kingdom have been enlightened to the point where they […]

Purim for Catholics

Today is the Fast Of Purim. And tonight we read the Book of Esther. Once upon a time, in the ancient Persian kingdom, there arose a government bureaucrat named Haman, a power-hungry Jew-hater who used the machinery of big government to contrive a genocide of the Jewish people. He told King Achashverosh that the Jews […]
