    Why is Rabbo in prison? I’ve written this before. Why wasn’t he hanged after trial? Why don’t the Israelis implement capital punishment for all Arab terrorists who kill or even attempt to kill Israelis? Why does Israel out of “humanitarian” grounds release terrorists such as in the Gilad Shalil (?) case knowing many will go right back to murdering Israeli Jews? I don’t as an American like giving advice to the Israelis in that they know best what is best for their country but it disturbs me a lot as a Jew and a Zionist to witness this idiotic and dangerous leniency.

    When Torah Teaches Life and Life Teaches Torah (REVIEW)

    JNS.org – Rabbi Gordon Tucker spent the first 20 years of his career teaching at the Conservative movement’s Jewish Theological Seminary (JTS) and the next 20 years as the rabbi of Temple Israel Center in White Plains, N.Y. I confess that when I heard about the order of those events, I thought that Tucker’s move from academia to the pulpit was strange. Firstly, I could not imagine anyone filling the place of my friend, Arnold Turetsky, who was such a talented [...]

    JNS.org – I’m in love, and have been for a long time. It’s a relationship filled with laughter, tears, intrigue, and surprise. It was love at first sight, back when I was a little girl—with an extra-terrestrial that longed to go home. From then on, that love has never wavered, and isn’t reserved for one, but for oh so many—Ferris Bueller, Annie Hall, Tootsie, Harry and Sally, Marty McFly, Atticus Finch, Danny Zuko, Yentl, that little dog Toto, Mrs. Doubtfire, [...]

The only way we can do this is by creating space for conversations and knowledge-sharing around innovative new education models. That also [...]
