    OK, admit it. You've breathed a guilty sigh of relief that your kids are still too young to have been bitten by the MySpace bug. You've relished the reprieve (if only temporary) from the mounting worries of parents of virtual-social-networking-obsessed middle and high schoolers.

  • Controverisal Israeli security approach takes flight in U.S.

    By Sam Ser

    September 21, 2006 | 8:00 pm

    The changes were inevitable. The Sept. 11 hijackers used box cutters as weapons, so box cutters were banned. Richard Reid smuggled explosives onto an American Airlines plane in his shoes, so passengers were ordered to remove their shoes for screening.

    July 19, 2006 | 8:00 pm

    Most summers, the trip to the Naot Sandal factory on a kibbutz close to Israel's northern border is a highlight of the teen tours run by United Synagogue Youth (USY). But this summer, with the north under constant threat of rocket attacks, the 400 USYers stayed in the central and...

    June 29, 2006 | 8:00 pm

    "No thought control."

    The famed lyrics from rock band Pink Floyd's much beloved "Another Brick in the Wall, Pt. 2" make for a powerful statement regardless of context. Scrawled last week in red paint on a concrete segment of Israel's security fence in the Palestinian town of...

    Outrageous statements by Iran's president calling for Israel's destruction put Iran back on the front page for a few days in October. Such belicose rhetoric should surprise no one; the destruction of Israel has been Iranian state policy since the 1979 revolution.

  • Judgment on ‘Munich’

    By Tom Tugend

    December 15, 2005 | 7:00 pm

    It's been nearly two and a half years since the president gave a triumphant speech about

    Will you feel safe going to synagogue this New Year?
