  • 64 years of Israel

    By Noga Gur-Arieh

    April 26, 2012 | 10:37 am

    Today, Israel celebrates 64 years of existence. That’s really not much. It’s almost nothing in a scale of countries to age, but in this short period of time, we sure have been through a lot. In 64 years, Israel has been through wars, diplomatic issues, growing population, ground...

  • Remember and thank

    By Noga Gur-Arieh

    April 24, 2012 | 10:15 am

    Being the most painful day for the Israeli nation, the Israeli Memorial day marks for me, more than anything, solidarity and togetherness.

    In its 64 years of existence, Israel has been through more than ten wars and operations, and endless terror events. To this day, 22993 Israelis...

    February 15, 2011 | 11:55 am

    The day after Egypt’s President Hosni Mubarak was ousted by a widespread public uprising, I found myself presenting a lecture about Solidarity, the mass trade union movement that convulsed Poland 30 years ago and paved the way for the collapse of the Iron Curtain a decade later.

  • Life on the picket lines—a striking writer reports

    By Ellen Sandler

    November 15, 2007 | 7:00 pm

    When I was asked by The Jewish Journal whether I'd like to write something funny about the WGA strike, I thought -- hey, there's nothing funny about this: corporate bullies refusing to pay writers for their work. This is serious. But as my friend Rob Lotterstein, creator and...
  • Elmau & Dachau: A Muslim’s Testimony

    By Mehnaz M. Afridi

    October 4, 2007 | 8:00 pm

    Barbed wire, loaded with death
    is drawn around our world.
    Above a sky without mercy
    sends frost and sunburn.
    Far from us are all joys,
    far away our home, far away our wives,
    when we march to work in silence
    thousands of us at the break of day.
    But we have learned the motto of Dachau...

  • We dare not murder memories of genocide

    By Rabbi Harold M. Schulweis

    April 19, 2007 | 8:00 pm

    Amnesia of the past foreshadows amnesia of the future. Forget yesterday's tragedy and the threat to tomorrow is denied. Forget the first genocide of the 20th century -- the murder of 1.5 million Armenians in 1915 -- and the memory and atrocities of the first genocide of the 21st...

    "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...

  • We Must Work to Build Solidarity in U.S.

    By Rabbi Joshua Feigelson

    September 22, 2005 | 8:00 pm

    Do you know anyone serving in Iraq? I intend to ask this question this year at Yom Kippur services. Of the 1,500 people who will hear it, I expect no more than a handful to say they do. I, for one, do not. Do you?

    As it is for most of America, the Iraq war is an abstraction to many...
