Privilege and Responsibility: Grappling With Israel in Exile

Privilege and Responsibility: Grappling With Israel in Exile

Why does it feel, especially after summers like we just had, so challenging to be connected to Israel? I want to stop thinking of Israel’s problems as simply a sadness and a burden on us as a people and instead see them for what they are, an opportunity for emotional and spiritual growth for us an individuals and as a nation.

The International Legal Revolution: Implications for Israel

The International Legal Revolution: Implications for Israel

We are witnessing today a new escalating virulent global and even lethal anti-Jewishness, reminiscent of the atmospherics of the 30s and without parallel of precedent since the 2nd World War.

The Summer of '71 Revisited

It was the summer of 1971. Passionate about learning, two young Jewish activists made their way to Jerusalem for a prestigious and innovative law program at Hebrew University.

How Can I Explain Why Israel is Important to the Jewish People?

How Can I Explain Why Israel is Important to the Jewish People?

My in-laws seem to only focus on the negatives about Israel. I want to steer our conversations away from all the negativity - but not avoiding all the issues of course. Israel is important to me; I feel a real connection. How can we turn an Israel-smearing into a positive conversation?

Hatzer Kinneret: A Zionist Training Ground

Hatzer Kinneret: A Zionist Training Ground

When we think of the holiest place in Israel our minds immediately shift to the Kotel, Tzfat, even Masada, but no one ever mentions Hatzer Kinneret - the place where the dream of settling the land of Israel became real life.

Bnei Menashe Need YOUR Help

Bnei Menashe Need YOUR Help

Six months ago I took a life-changing trip to India. Not to the beaches of Goa, nor to the temples of Mumbai or even the cultural festivals of Kolkata. My trip had one purpose: to bring Bnei Menashe home - to Israel.

Israel Volunteering for the Young at Heart

Israel Volunteering for the Young at Heart

It all began from a personal desire to volunteer in Israel. I didn’t want to volunteer on an army base or spend a month in Netanya volunteering and living in a hotel. I wanted to volunteer with an Israeli organization in Jerusalem where I stay and volunteer alongside Israelis, getting as close to daily life here as I could.

I'm A Jew and Proud of It

I'm A Jew and Proud of It

As Jews, our response must be to unite as one. One people. One nation. One conscious. It must be to stand proud, and to say never again. To not let ANYONE close our synagogues, our community centers, or force us to hide away our pride but most importantly, the essence of who we are.

They Don't Hate Israel. They Hate the Jews.

They Don't Hate Israel. They Hate the Jews.

When I see the antisemitism in the world today, I cannot be silent. As I have written previously, the widespread and growing antisemitism is there for all to see. Yet few admit to it.

What It Means To Be A Lone Soldier

What It Means To Be A Lone Soldier

Being a Lone soldier is a difficult task but if you join with the right attitude, mindset and an open mind, once you complete your service you will emerge a transformed person – mature, confident and ready to take on life.

The Zionist Dream in the Poconos

The Zionist Dream in the Poconos

An excerpt from the new memoir ‘Why Not Say What Happened’ by Morris Dickstein conjures lost summer worlds and tells his own deeply engaging story of growing up in the turbulent American culture of the postwar decades.

A Uniquely Israeli Welcome

A Uniquely Israeli Welcome

Leaving friends and my brother in the United States was not easy. Leaving the small town I had lived in for almost thirty years was not easy. But seeking a more Jewish life here, in our homeland, in the place where our history began four thousand years ago, is easier than it might seem.

Modern Anti-Semitism: Bernard-Henri Lévy at the UN

Modern Anti-Semitism: Bernard-Henri Lévy at the UN

In other capitals, many others, in Europe and elsewhere, faulting the Jews is once again becoming the rallying cry of a new order of assassins - unless it is the same, but cloaked in new habits. The United Nations was set up, also, to fight this plague. This assembly was given the sacred task of preventing those terrible spirits from reawakening. But they have returned - and that is why we are here.

Loving Israel through Music: Sam Glaser

Loving Israel through Music: Sam Glaser

Sam Glaser’s The Promise is an inspired, all new musical celebration of the gift of the Land of Israel. It explores the love affair with the Promised Land through the biblical period, two millennia of exile and the past sixty miraculous years of aliyah.
