Direct Divine Intervention. What happened to it?


An uplifting article with a promise for all with righteous hearts. Excerpted from JWR: In our day, open miracles do not occur. According to the Jewish religious tradition, direct Divine intervention to turn what we call nature on its head ended in Biblical times. Still perceptible, though, in even our less holy times are more subtle Heavenly intrusions, twists of “fate” that might wrongly be dismissed as mere coincidence.

Thank You, Hero


Via Thank You, Hero: On Wednesday we had a chance to see a hero. What is heroism? A pure moment where a person knowingly risks his life without considering personal benefit. Wednesday’s hero was educated in a family and in a community that tells its sons when they join the army, “the most important thing is that you protect your people.” This soldier, riding his bicycle, on leave from the army, in the face of a rampaging bulldozer, decided that he is going to stop the terrorist. The immediate decision to get on the bulldozer, empty handed, is what distinguishes

Time in Judaism vs. Time in Islam


I have not read this book, but it is a title I will add to my reading list. It’s called Time and Process in Ancient Judaism, available here. One may read more about the title here. Littman Books writes: This fascinating book investigates time in ancient Judaism. After a comprehensive study of the Rabbinic sources Stern is forced to conclude that time as a concept simply did not exist in ancient Jewish society. Time-wasting for example is never mentioned as a bad thing, calendars are predicated on the idea of a sequence of events not on the idea of time,

Written by Rabbi Meir Kahane ZT”L HY”D The essence of Passover is the commandment of the Hagadda, of telling and retelling, of passing on to our children, the story of Passover, its concepts and lessons and commandments. Passover is the beginning of Judaism, its very birth, hence its direction and directive to pass on to our sons and daughters, its fundamentals and teachings. However, the problem with a commandment to parents to pass on lessons to their children is that so few know what to pass on. Indeed, through honest ignorance or honest receipt of confusion from those who passed

Satmars denounce Jewish Shoah conference attendies


Satmars denounce Jewish Shoah conference attendies Six Jews who attended a Holocaust denial conference in Iran have come under intense criticism over the visit, with one of the world’s largest Hasidic groups denouncing them as “reckless outcasts.” The Jews who went to Iran “trampled on the memory of their ancestors and people. They embraced the disciplines and followers of their murderers,” said a statement from the Satmar leaders of CongregationYetev Lev in Brooklyn. The Jews who attended the conference are often confused with the Satmars, who also are anti-Zionist but acknowledge that 6 million Jews died in the Holocaust. The
