The Westworld Haggadah

Tweet by Jake Novak There’s a key moment in the Seder when the Haggadah informs us that all Jews must think of themselves as if they personally came out of bondage in Egypt. Talk about a tall order. Thank goodness, most of us live decidedly comfortable middle or upper middle class lives. Getting our heads […]

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.

Iran Blames Drug Addiction On Talmud

Tweet The chattering classes keep telling us that the Iranian regime is not anti-Semitic, only anti-Zionist. Of course anti-Zionism is Jew-hatred decked out in a more fashionable outfit.
