The sound of Madonna versus the sound of missiles
Here we are, in a parallel universe. It’s 2012 and the Olympics are being staged in London — an event that you might imagine attracts global media attention. All is going swimmingly, until the Faroe Islanders, in a fit of pique, start aiming weaponry at...

It’s the 21st century, yet some still don’t know it
I’m writing this before Pesach has even started in the knowledge that it will be pretty much over by the time people get to read this in the print edition of the Jewish News. So I hope you all have/have had a lovely chag. The celebration...

Don’t make it easy for Corbynites to divide us
Something murky is going on in Stamford Hill. It seems there are three main issues swirling around the strictly-Orthodox community, although it’s easy enough to imagine that it’s all one ongoing row. One is the argument about whether or not parents should vaccinate their children, in...

Don’t laugh too soon at Uri’s Brexit stunt
I don’t know about you, but I’m feeling in great need of cheering up, what with all kind of scaremongering stories about Brexit and having to take critical decisions as to whether to run down food before Pesach or stockpile like mad for Brexit. Loo...

Troll bashing to kill off the conspiracy theories
February, o’best beloveds, has been conspiracy month, in almost every way possible. People are behaving badly almost everywhere you look, most recently in the response to the MPs who finally snapped and left their political homes over the twin gorgons of antisemitism and Brexit. Let’s...

The days of kissing up to Labour are long gone
Last week, as if she didn’t have enough on her plate, the MP Luciana Berger was gently exhorting people to observe Time To Talk Day, an initiative relating to mental health, her special interest. It struck me that “time to talk” might be a useful...

Enough ‘apologies’ – back under your rocks
I have reached the stage where every time I even so much as see a picture of the Labour leader, I am obliged hurriedly to turn the page. For me, Jeremy Corbyn has become the equivalent of an extremely treife recipe in a cookery book: Nothing...

Reasons to feel upbeat during bleakest month
Traditionally — which in marketing-speak actually means something made up in the last five years — this is the bleakest week of the year. It’s the week when all the holiday overspending catches up with people, nobody has yet been paid, and January feels like...

Homespun lesson in life by the ‘prophet of Israel’ Amos Oz
Of the many “me with” pictures and remembrances in the wake of the death of Israel’s acclaimed author Amos Oz, a few stand out for me. One is a shot of a young and happy Barbra Streisand with Oz, two beautiful people, full of life...
