    Italy is expelling a Moroccan imam who called for Jews to be killed.
    Raoudi Aldelbar, the imam of a mosque in the town of San Dona di Piave, near Venice, was filmed during a sermon there last month saying, among other things, “Oh Allah, bring upon [Jews] that which will make us...

  • Unleashing dance, offstage

    March 6, 2013 | 4:31 am

    Choreographer Heidi Duckler isn’t content simply to make works for a stage. To her, the whole of Los Angeles, the whole of the world, even, is fit for dancing. Why leap across a theater floor when you can glide around the lobby of an office building? Why spin atop sprung wood when...

    Last week three teenage girls admitted they drew swastikas, the word Jew, and put crap on the front walkway of the home of a fellow student. They go to school with the girl who lives in the house and they decided to play a prank on her.  Important to note that the girl who lives in...

  • Peace House expulsions show need for sensitivity

    December 11, 2008 | 1:35 am

    I understand there are rabbis who used their pulpits on Shabbat to criticize the brave Jewish heroes whom the government forcefully expelled from their homes in Hebron just a few days ago.

    Here’s an excerpt from Adam Wills’ fascinating article:

    Lafitte ... establish[ed] a pirate kingdom in the swamps...

    The third anniversary of the 'Disengagement' is upon us with the coming of Tisha B'Av, and I'm not sure how many Jewish newspapers are covering it.

    We've forgotten about the good people of Gush Katif, Gaza -- their spiritual and physical suffering after being left homeless by the...

    By Rabbi Shlomo Riskin

    September 8, 2005 | 8:00 pm

    The disengagement or expulsion has ended. But is this also the end of religious Zionism? Are there lessons we can and must learn that may enable us to emerge stronger from this most difficult period?

    The first lesson we learned is that we are indeed one nation. There was no real...

    With Thanksgiving here and Chanukah just around the corner, most of us are reflecting on all there is to be thankful for, embracing our freedom as Jews and Americans. As we share our thanks this year and celebrate the holidays, it is my hope that more American Jews will think of...
