    Rabbi Efrem Goldberg, senior rabbi at Boca Raton Synagogue, a Modern Orthodox shul, spent two days in Israel recently as part of a brief solidarity visit organized by the Orthodox Union, the association of Orthodox synagogues. Goldberg wrote on the...
  • How 'bout them apples?

    The traditional foods we eat during Jewish holidays have been reflecting and celebrating each season since long before "seasonal produce" was even a thought, let alone a "trend." (Let's not forget that once upon a time, "seasonal" was all there was.) From...
  • Remembering Steven Sotloff

    "I am Shirley Sotloff. My son, Steven, is in your hands." So began Shirley Sotloff's emotional appeal to Abu Bakr Al-Baghdadi, the leader of the terror group ISIS, on Aug. 27. The terror group had just released a video of a British-accented fighter...
  • Shofar Factory readies students for New Year

    Every year, right before the Jewish High Holy Days, Rabbi Shmuly Gutnick, of Chabad Youth Network of Florida, goes all around South Florida teaching thousands of children how to make their own shofars (rams' horns). Gutnick explained that the shofar is...
  • God is one with us

    Parshat Netzavim, the first of the two portions we read this week, is replete with the message of teshuvah (repentance). In one place the Torah notes that even when we are dispersed God will return us to Him. The Torah continues, "then the Lord your...

    On Thursday, Aug. 28, Yeshiva Tiferes Torah of Boca Raton (TTB) opened its doors to 25 Bais Medrash talmidim (post-high school students). They were joined by 13 ninth-graders on Tuesday, Sept. 2. Boca Raton has experienced widespread growth in recent...

  • Jonah Goldberg: Is the Islamic State really un-Islamic?

    "Now let's make two things clear: ISIL is not Islamic. No religion condones the killing of innocents, and the vast majority of ISIL's victims have been Muslim. And ISIL is certainly not a state." -- President Barack Obama in his address to the nation on...

    Leonid Bershidsky: New anti-Semitism in Germany isn't the same
    It should surprise no one that representatives from across Germany's political establishment, including the president and chancellor, turned out for a rally against anti-Semitism in Berlin on Sunday, given the country's history and a series of ugly anti-...
