  • Synagogue Slaughter Aforethought

    3 weeks ago

    Last Tuesday morning: five Jewish men head to synagogue in Har Nof—to pray for peace. Same morning: two Palestinians head to same synagogue—to murder them. It has been only one week since the tragic day. In fewer than 48 hours, supporters of the Har Nof community rallied online and...

    Reeva Steenkamp

    There are three women in the news this week that I want to comment on. I am fascinated by this group of people and find myself with strong opinions and feelings about all of them. They are all in the news for the wrong reasons and I find myself feeling compassion...

    With the announcement that six Jews were arrested in the murder of Muhammad Hussein Abu Khdeir, a 16-year-old Palestinian, it is difficult to describe the sense of despondence that I (and I presume nearly all Jews) feel. Most Jews have a sense that certain things are truly foreign...

  • Wolpe on the murder of teens: Don’t say ‘BUT’

    By Rabbi David Wolpe

    July 7, 2014 | 4:08 pm

    Please, please don’t say ‘but.’  The words after ‘but’ invalidate everything that comes before – 
“He’s a nice person, but he does steal from the company.”  You see?  “But” is a meaning duster, sweeping all that precedes it.

    So everyone who has written condemning the murder of...

    July 1, 2014 | 11:02 am

    When I first heard the tragic news that the three kidnapped Israeli boys had been murdered by Palestinian terrorists, my immediate instinct was to cry out for revenge. What other sentiment could I have? How else to respond to such cruelty? Should we not punish the murderers and...

    If I could ask one question of a religious person — of any faith — it would be, “What is the worst sin in your religion?”

  • Israel should not release prisoners for peace

    August 21, 2013 | 2:48 pm

    Releasing Palestinian prisoners as a political gesture erodes Israel’s democratic fabric and challenges the country’s core sense of justice. Ironically, it is the dissemination of justice and the people of Israel’s faith in that justice that has kept their society together.
