  • Clash of ‘right and right’ festers in Jordan Valley

    September 25, 2008 | 12:29 am

    A tragedy, as defined by Amos Oz, one of the Israel's most outspoken advocates of a two-state solution to the Israeli-Palestinian conflict, is "a clash between right and right." In the northernmost corner of the West Bank, Oz's maxim holds true; it is a place where wronged are...

  • IFF: Engaging in disengagement—five horrible days in Gaza

    By Amy Klein

    February 22, 2007 | 7:00 pm

    One of the first news stories I covered in Jerusalem 10 years ago was the excavation of holy artifacts by the city. Ultra-Orthodox Jews were protesting the excavations, because they said they were disturbing ancient Jewish graves upon which the entire city was built. It was a common...

    By Renata Polt

    September 14, 2006 | 8:00 pm

    If it wasn't for Jews, Las Vegas wouldn't be the town it is today. Proof of Jewish prosperity can be found across the city, especially in its stunning architecture.

    Devorah Meitlis walks up a wind-swept hill leading to the small clubhouse-turned-polling station in this West Bank settlement, hoping her home here will still exist by the time of Israel's next election.

    By David N. Myers

    August 25, 2005 | 8:00 pm

    The disengagement from Gaza has exposed raw emotions and wrenching scenes of families being uprooted from their homes of decades.

    Many in the Jewish community, while believing that the disengagement was necessary and even overdue, have felt the pain of the settlers. Some have even...

  • Gaza’s Ties to Jewish History

    By Dina Kraft

    August 4, 2005 | 8:00 pm

    Modern Israeli settlement in the Gaza Strip resumed only after the 1967 Six-Day War, but even with those settlements set to be evacuated, Jewish roots in the sandy strip of land where Egypt, Israel and the Mediterranean Sea meet run deep.

    Opinions differ on whether the area was or...

    August 4, 2005 | 8:00 pm

    The withdrawal from Gaza, scheduled to begin in mid-August, is one of the most important events in the history of the State of Israel. It will determine whether Israel can continue to be a Jewish and democratic state.

  • End of Sanity

    July 28, 2005 | 8:00 pm

    The orange ribbon was tied neatly around my rearview mirror.

    Through the mirror I saw the face of an acquaintance in the backseat. I was giving her a ride from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem.

    When she noticed the color of my political views above the dashboard, she offered her own: "We...

    In the winter of 1861-1862, the skies in California let loose, unleashing torrents of water around the state. In Los Angeles, rain fell for 28 straight days, pushing the Los Angeles River higher and higher until a waist-high wall of water jumped its banks, ripping away everything...

  • Orthodox Stress Strong Israel Ties

    By Dina Kraft

    December 2, 2004 | 7:00 pm

     

    North American Modern Orthodox Jews say they can explain their connection to Israel in one word: Torah.

    "It's an organic existence. An Orthodox Jew grows up and believes that Eretz Yisrael and the people of Israel are one. The fulfillment of Torah is Eretz Yisrael," said David...

    Knishes, brisket, borscht, flanken and overstuffed corned beef on rye.

    Imagine American Jewish food, and one envisions Ashkenazi fare brought by the 2.5 million Eastern European immigrants who settled here between 1881 and 1921.

    But long before pastrami ever hit a New...

    By Dan Baron

    September 23, 2004 | 8:00 pm

    For the settlers of the Gaza Strip, the left-leaning kibbutzim just over the border with Israel proper are, politically speaking, a world apart.

    But as Knesset ratification of Prime Minister Ariel Sharon's withdrawal from the Gaza Strip looms, some Gaza settlers are exploring the...

    This is a soul-wrenching time for all of us who love the Land of Israel. Jewish homes and villages, farms and factories -- the settlement work of three decades -- are soon to be uprooted in Gaza. We know that more demolitions may be coming.

    Politically -- for the first time in the...

  • Pursuit of Peace Requires New Coalition

    By Leonard Fein

    June 3, 2004 | 8:00 pm

    We have long since learned to swallow hard as the Israelis persist in policies that are ill-conceived and ill-executed, policies that threaten the entire Zionist enterprise.

    There are so many of these that we try to ignore and even justify targeted killings, "collateral damage," a...
