As a small-town synagogue president, I field a lot of very interesting calls. I’ve talked to parents who are worried about their kids going to school far away from home, to such an un-Jewish campus town (yes, they can come to my house for Shabbat).

On Dec. 3, 2017, an unspeakable act occurred in Jerusalem. Yonatan Razel, an ultra-Orthodox Jewish musician, saw that women at his concert wanted to dance.

As most of you probably know, we are moving toward the time when autonomous vehicles will start filling our roads and highways.  But what has not been discussed a lot is that Intel and Warner Brothers are working on new kinds of “immersive” entertainment experiences to fill the time of passengers who no longer have to worry about driving. ...
Otzma Yehudit CEO Dr. Michael Ben-Ari for several years has been in contact with a pro-Israel Iranian youth, who is currently updating him on the events behind the recent wave of protests in Iran. In an interview with Arutz Sheva, Ben-Ari spoke about the special relationship between himself and the Iranian youth, and their conversation in Fārsi and Hebrew. "It's a very special...

It really bothers me, however, that the young singer from New Zealand decided to boycott Israel because of incitement and alleged words of “explanation” from another young woman from the same serene, remote country—Justine Sachs, a Jew who...
The US Ambassador to the UN has now questioned the credibility of UNRWA as a recipient of US AID. By no small coincidence, the GAO, the General Accounting Office, the investigative arm of the US Congress, is scheduled to issue a massive report on the indiscretions of UNRWA at some point during the month of February.
