    On this Memorial Day, I would like to tell you the story of Sergeant Major Keren Tendler, who died on August 12, 2006, during the Second Lebanon War. Her mother, Rivana Tendler, told me the story of a bright young girl who suddenly was no more, and shared the reality of life...

    By Rob Eshman

    September 24, 2013 | 10:46 am

    If you like food and you like Israel, this past week’s episode of Anthony Bourdain’s “Parts Unknown” was a win-win.

    And I say that despite the criticism Bourdain has received from the people who profess to love Israel. To them, he presented a biased, pro-Palestinian screed...

    After the long-awaited final report of the Winograd Commission of inquiry into the Second Lebanon War was published last week, all eyes turned toward Israeli Defense Minister Ehud Barak.

    Barak, the Labor Party leader, was the one man whose withdrawal of his party from the governing...

  • Hey, Hezbollah! Stop the rockets, we’re eating dinner here!

    By Glenn Yago

    July 12, 2007 | 8:00 pm

    Adding to the litany of heartbreak, the outbreak that we would soon call the Second Lebanon War erupted more than a week before the accompanying photo was taken in my friend's backyard in the biblical landscape of the Western Galilee village of Clil.

    More than one-third of the...

  • The Second Lebanon War—one year later

    By Leslie Susser

    July 5, 2007 | 8:00 pm

    One year after the Second Lebanon War, Israel's northern front is quiet, U.N. forces are patrolling the border area and Hezbollah fighters have been pushed back deep inside Lebanese territory.

    That's the good news.

    On the other side of the equation, Prime Minister Ehud Olmert is...

    My pre-camp seminar with 35 staff members from Israel had just wrapped up, but Avinoam, our 21-year-old Israeli basketball coach for the summer, lingered behind, looking nervous and shaken.

    "Rabbi Dan, I want to let the kids get to know me this summer, like you said, so they can...

  • How the victorious IDF of 1967 become the defeated IDF of 2006

    By Martin van Creveld

    May 31, 2007 | 8:00 pm

    Nearly a year has passed since Israel's 2006 war in Lebanon and 40 since the June 1967 war.

    Those familiar with last summer's war might well rub their eyes in disbelief. Given how badly the Israel Defense Forces performed in Lebanon, where it was stymied by a guerrilla organization...
  • Incumbency aids Olmert in surviving party ‘coup’

    By Leslie Susser

    May 10, 2007 | 8:00 pm

    By all accounts, Prime Minister Ehud Olmert should have been history.

    The Winograd Commission's interim report issued April 30 on last summer's second Lebanon War could not have been more scathing. The paragraph on the prime minister's responsibility for the failures and...
  • What now after Winograd?

    By Dina Kraft

    May 3, 2007 | 8:00 pm

    With "failure" officially stamped on Ehud Olmert's management of last summer's war against Hezbollah in Lebanon, the question is: What happens now?
