By Rob Eshman

October 26, 2010 | 10:07 am

Oh G-d no. Not another Bible codes book. And this one launched in a full page ad in The New York Times highlighting how in May 2008 Oprah Winfrey sent a Bible code to Barack Obama that he... read on

  • ‘Nothing immoral’ about homosexuality: An Orthodox view

    By Rabbi Shmuley Boteach

    October 18, 2010 | 1:10 pm

    Carl Paladino, the Republican candidate for governor of New York, sparked controversy last week by declaring in a speech at an Orthodox synagogue that children shouldn’t be “brainwashed” into considering homosexuality acceptable. He later apologized, saying that he supports gay... read on

  • Extravagant weddings and bar mitzvahs humiliate the Jewish community

    By Rabbi Shmuley Boteach

    August 24, 2010 | 11:27 pm

    How embarrassing.

    On Aug. 22, the Los Angeles Times ran an article about extravagant Jewish Iranian weddings in Southern California that exposes our community as a bunch of shallow, boastful materialists who think the purpose of a marriage ceremony is to tell your friends how much... read on

  • Russell Simmons is wrong about the Ground Zero Mosque

    By Rabbi Shmuley Boteach

    August 18, 2010 | 10:27 am

    I still remember, Russell, when you came to my debate with Rev. Al Sharpton, nine years ago, in New York City. You struck me then as a man of warmth and openness. In that spirit I offer you this response to your recent blog postings supporting the Ground Zero mosque and your... read on

  • Iran’s Descent Into Barbarity

    By Rabbi Shmuley Boteach

    August 10, 2010 | 11:20 pm

    To Al Gore’s detractors he is many things. An annoying gasbag. A self-righteous know-it-all. A braggart who invented the internet. A fraud who promoted global warming as an international hoax.

    Such exaggerated criticism would explain why many believe the as-yet unsubstantiated... read on

  • Op-Ed: Tom Friedman must apologize for slandering Israel

    By  Rabbi Shmuley Boteach

    July 1, 2010 | 12:32 pm

    I don’t often read Tom Friedman in The New York Times. True, he is one of the most lucid writers in America, and his crystal-clear prose helps in understanding some of the world’s most intractable conflicts. He can also be repetitive, tiresome and a little too in love with his... read on

  • What McChrystal’s Firing Says about American Values

    By Rabbi Shmuley Boteach

    June 28, 2010 | 12:27 pm

    It seems I’m one of the few Americans who was appalled at the firing of General Stanley McChrystal. In a rare moment of unity, pundits on both the left and right supported the President relieving the general of command. The arguments were uniform (no pun intended). If the President... read on
