A Blind Eye and A Wink

Please see my new article in The Times of Israel called, “The UNjust United Nations.”

This week the United Nations failed to pass a General Assembly resolution designating Hamas a terrorist organization, despite Hamas being designated as such by the United States for 25 years already. What the United States knows intrinsically and based on the day-to-day terror activities of Hamas, the corrupt and anti-Semitic United Nations fails to acknowledge or, perhaps worse yet, condones.

Certainly, the UN is not living up to its charter to maintain peace and security and uphold human rights…with the UN, it’s just the opposite! 😉

Stained Glass Majesty

There is something about stained glass which is so beautiful and amazing. 


It’s not only artistic and colorful, but also it’s a magical combination of opaqueness and translucence.


It provides cover and privacy from the outside world, yet it plays with the light that comes in through it to give a wonderful effect to any room.


If I could, I would make every room in every building with stained glass. 


I would bask in the light and the color. 


It would feel warm and holy–the light of G-d on me. 


It’s as if G-d and His holy host are streaming in from the Heavens, and surrounding me all about. 


I feel lifted up in space and time stops, all is safe and wonderful in the world. 


Beautiful and holy spiritual energy celebrating, dancing, and singing all around me. 😉

Shooting at The Tree of Life

Please read my new article in The Times of Israel called, “Devastation at The Tree of Life Shooting.”

No, this is certainly not the Tree of Life in the Garden of Eden–this murderous scene was certainly no Eden! On this Shabbat there is not life in that holy house of worship, but another familiar Jewish massacre from a gunman screaming, “All the Jews need to die!”

Let us be strong together and hope for the full redemption when peace and brotherhood will soon prevail. 😉

And On That Day…

Please see my new article in The Times of Israel, All Will Know G-d


In the true story that I recount, a little Ethiopian girl tells me:

There is no reason to fight because we all believe in G-d and that He created us.


Similar to what Zechariah prophesized (14:9)

The LORD will be king over the whole earth. On that day there will be one LORD, and his name the only name.

 


I hope you enjoy this piece on faith, unity, and hope for the future. 😉

Terrorist Murders Ari Fuld in Israel

I am completely shocked and saddened by the murder of an American citizen, Ari Fuld, by a radical Islamist terrorist in the Holy Land of Israel. 


Ari is the father of four and the brother of my friend and classmate Moshe Fuld.


He is also the son of Rabbi Yonah Fuld, the former Vice Principal of Hebrew Studies at SAR Academy in Riverdale, New York. 


Ari had served in the IDF and was an outspoken defender of Israel’s right to exist and for a Jewish homeland in the Promised Land of Israel. 


Even after he was stabbed from behind by the cowardly terrorist, Ari managed to chase and shoot the terrorist. 


Ari is a true hero!


He died of his wounds just a few days before Yom Kippur, and he will be remembered for his deep love of the land of Israel and the Jewish people. 


I am honored to know the Fuld family and call them my friends. 


I wish them my deepest condolences on this tragic loss. 


Baruch Dayan Ha’Emet!


May Hashem protect Israel, it’s defenders, and the Jewish people and let us live finally in peace and security.
