Israel On Fire

Please see my new article in Times of Israel, “Israel Must Fight Fire With Fire.”


When the Hamas terrorist’s from Gaza are trying to burn the State of Israel, Israel needs to make sure it’s the terrorists are the ones getting burnt.  😉

10 Commandments, 10 Plagues–What’s The Connection?

Ten Commandments

It occurred to me while listening to the Rabbi’s speech at Magen David Synagogue today that there is nothing random in the Torah (Bible).

Since this weeks’s Torah reading in Exodus was about the ten plagues in Egypt, I realized that this must be connected to the later ten commandments in a subsequent reading. 

This table explains how the commandments to the Jews (and all mankind) and the plagues on the Egyptians are connected one for one.
