  • Fight the Enemy by Being More Jewish

    By David Suissa

    August 24, 2006 | 8:00 pm

    I was at a big, beautiful Jewish wedding two weeks ago when something unusual interrupted the traditional chuppah ceremony: someone came up and read a poignant prayer in English in support of our suffering Jewish brethren in Israel.

    Initially, there was no doubt in my mind that...

  • Chipping Away at Israel Support Endangers U.S.

    By Joe R. Hicks

    I spent a fair amount of time in Israel in the late 1990s, traveling throughout the country. One of my many impressions of that nation was that there was a pervasive desire by Israelis for a lasting, mutually beneficial peace with hostile neighbors.

    At the time of my visit, I was...

  • Every Jew Is on the Front Lines of War

    Ilan Halimi's barbarous murder in France should awaken all Jews to the most significant truth of our times: Today, every Jew in the world is on the front lines of war.

    As was the case 70 years ago, every Jew today is a target for our enemies, who shout from every soapbox and prove...

    In these portions, the borders of Israel are drawn in two different ways. Unfortunately, they conflict. Mattot indicates Israel's borders extend from the Nile River to the Euphrates River. But Maseh is much more moderate and reports Israel's borders are between Dan and Beersheva.

  • Serious Play

    By Rabbi Shawn Fields-Meyer

    December 13, 2001 | 7:00 pm

    We call it the Festival of Lights, but Chanukah starts in a very dark place.

    It begins with two stories, each very serious. One tells of a severely outnumbered band of Jews who fought a powerful enemy for religious freedom. And there's the other, even more painful tale of Jew vs....

  • Knowing Our Enemy

    By Rela Mintz Geffen

    March 23, 2000 | 7:00 pm

    It is the Ides of March and the week before Purim. We know who Agag, King of Amalek -- the enemy of the Jews -- is, but are not sure who should beware.

    As an FOD (Friend of Deborah Lipstadt), I sit in the British courtroom on March 15 and watch the expressions on her face as her...

  • Jockeying for Position

    May 27, 1999 | 8:00 pm

    The luncheon menu reflected the confusion this week at the Washington policy conference of the American Israel Public Affairs Committee, the powerful pro-Israel lobbying group better known as AIPAC. The main course was hummus, falafel and baba ganoush, a Mediterranean medley that...
