A narrow right-wing government should be able to last through the summer session 1 For a perfect example of the stark contrast between the state of the nation and the conduct of its leaders, one had only to drop by at the commencement of the Knesset’s darkest summer session since the founding of the state. Despite the war, the atmosphere inside the building shows that nothing has changed. On the first day of the session, May 22, mounted police were lined up across the road outside the chamber to greet Kaplan demonstrators who promised to appear in force, but ended up making a rather anemic sh ..read more

Jews in the American Civil War A Jewish cavalryman cries “Shema Yisrael” as he fires his gun — knowing that the opposing unit contains Shomrei Shabbos Jewish soldiers. Several soldiers forage the fields before Pesach attempting to find a substitute for maror. A lone soldier fights in a bloody skirmish on an empty stomach, because how can he eat on Yom Kippur? Spanning four years, from April 1861 to May 1865, the American Civil War was a conflict that divided the nation over the institution of slavery. As with many pivotal events in American history, Jews played a disproportionate role, d ..read more

Remind yourself that the unexceptional is the norm Flipping the Focus Shoshana Schwartz It’s a typical Thursday morning, and you’ve just done your last carpool drop-off. You drive along savoring the quiet alone time, and reach home a few minutes later with nothing remarkable to dwell on. Your engine doesn’t stall, you don’t get stuck in traffic, you don’t witness any accidents, sudden storms don’t blind your vision, and no one calls with an emergency. If you’re a fiction writer, or even just a natural story teller, the above narrative won’t make the cut. A memorable story is built on events t ..read more

What is representative of America today — the hate spewing on campuses and elsewhere, or the unsolicited, heartfelt comments I receive?  Photo: AP Images IT is early last November. I am about to enter the gate at the side of the East Denver Orthodox Synagogue on Friday evening before Shabbos. Out of nowhere, a person approaches me. He clearly wants to talk to me but seems unfamiliar with the surroundings. He says, “I’m Catholic. I go to the big cathedral — you know, the big one?” “Yes,” I say, “I know.” (It’s near our office.) “I’m Catholic, and I want you to know that we stand ..read more

“I imagine many readers were baffled by Miriam’s story, the woman who purchased an American Girl doll” I’m the Daughter of a Rikki [Tempo / Issue 893] Kudos to Bashie Lisker on her powerful story, “The Understudy,” about a divorced woman who feels that she cannot heal or move on after a difficult marriage, and how she feels sidelined by her ex-husband's new wife. While I know it was only fiction, mothers like Rikki exist, and it’s heartbreaking to hear how unhappy life can be in their situation. If you’re a Rikki, thinking that life has to go on without you while your former spouse gets to go ..read more

For millions of people across Europe and America... the proper response to the slaughter of Jews is apparently to belittle it Computer generation has recently brought the Churban back to life. In a powerful clip that makes the rounds at Tishah B’Av time, you can feel the heat of battle, the despair as Roman legionaries swarm the ramparts and torch the Beis Hamikdash. To get a taste of the humiliation and fear of those far-off times, though, you no longer need simulation. With the release last week of a clip showing the tatzpitaniyot — the female soldiers whose job it was to monitor the I ..read more

There was a man who sang and who learned and who taught Location: Berlin, Germany Document: HaNe’eman Fifth Yahrtzeit Tribute (Telz) Time: May 1924   There was a man, A man whose life was creation, A man whose creation was life. There was a man who sang and who learned and who taught, And who thought and who rejoiced And who loved and who grieved. And all of his words were alive and illuminated With the light of Avraham Avinu’s furnace, A brilliant light that escapes from between his words; That like a hammer shatters rock, The light of the secrets of Yisrael, The light of the secre ..read more
