    true
    We’re on the Temple Mount issue, still. credit: Wikipedia. The days go by, and the situation gets more and more unreal. Yet at its core, what’s happening tells us a great deal. As you likely recall, the Temple Mount was closed by Prime Minister Netanyahu on Friday, and remained closed on Saturday.

  • From the Island to Zion.
    true
    I have just returned from an overseas vacation with my family. My husband is Israeli and for some reason, I will sometimes get nervous if people ask where he comes from. credit: Emily Gian. Despite the fact that we never travel to particularly “unfriendly” countries or areas, you never can tell what sort of reaction you might get when you tell them you are Israeli. Perhaps, it’s for that reason that I feel wary when the question... Read more »
  • Oz Torah: What is a Din Torah? – Ask the Rabbi
    true
    WHAT IS A DIN TORAH? Religious questions come before Batei Din (religious courts) every week of the year. One of their lesser known areas of activity is that of “Dinei Torah” – helping to solve disputes by means of arbitration and adjustment. As well as calling upon Jewish law and ethical teaching in making its decision in cases of Dinei Torah, the Beth Din helps to contain disputes involving members of the Jewish community and to avoid recourse...

  • Into the Fray – A Port in Gaza: Preposterous & Perilous Proposal.
    true
    Hamas are not burrowing tunnels because Gaza has no port. They are burrowing them despite the fact it does not have one.  Israel’s intelligence and transport minister has long pushed the idea of an artificial island off the coast of the Gaza Strip, with plans for a port, cargo terminal and even an airport to boost the territory’s economy and connect it to the world. – A New Island in the Mediterranean… Just Off Gaza Reuters...

  • From Israel: Through the Prism of Victory.
    true
    It is not sufficient that I wrote in my last posting about the Knesset Israel Victory Caucus. What the Israel Victory Project does, in speaking of the need for Israel to win, is promote a mindset. It’s important to draw upon it whenever possible. ~~~~~~~~~~ In that last posting, I wrote about interactions with the Palestinian Arabs that fail to deliver the message that they have lost. I cited as one example the return of Trump envoy... Read more »
  • The time has come for Muslims in Canada to apologize.
    true
    National War Memorial, Ottawa. The time has come for Muslims in Canada to apologize to the rest of Canada for the way we live, now, always on the edge, fearing terrorist attacks at any time, but especially at happy places and events.  We are collectively fearful of being in crowds; remember Manchester and the Bataclan. How did we get to this place where we prioritize the feelings and rights of Muslims over all other ethnic groups, including... Read more »
