The President’s Chanukah Gift

Ad-Hominem Advocacy: Obama’s Harm Offensive on Iran

This Passover, Let’s Free Ourselves from Ideological Slavery

Prejudice and Pride: Goodbye and Good Riddance, 2014
As 2014 draws to a close, I can’t help but reflect on this year’s dramatic increase in antisemitic and anti-Israel attacks, and hope that the coming year will see more Jews actively join the fight to reverse these trends. In Israel itself, 2014 saw another...
