Normalizing the Abnormal

When talking to women looking to meet a man, they frequently say to me, “I just want to meet someone normal.” The problem is who gets to decide what is normal? My definition may be very different from yours. My views of normal certainly differ greatly from the views held by many of my fellow...

Brave Leadership

I’m not seeing it in my church When you were leading a synagogue did you have the freedom to teach in the same way you teach now? I see many pastors provide a watered-down version of their faith afraid of the loss of numbers. I get discouraged and find more satisfaction when the pastor is...

Is Technology a Tool I Use?

Or is it controlling me? Compliments Rabbi Lapin, I am presently reading your book Thou Shall Prosper and came across what you said about how television can affect one’s ability to imagine or dream. Would that same effect happen with constant use of the computer: be it phone, palmtops, iPads, laptops, among others? I like...

Marie Antoinette for Supreme Court?

Condescending attitude a plus As the country prepares for Justice Breyer’s pending resignation, I don’t think that Democrats are worried that whatever liberal/Leftist is nominated will, if confirmed, become more conservative after spending time on the Supreme Court. They don’t worry about that because it doesn’t happen. Conservatives, on the other hand, justifiably fret that...

Anger Ammunition

Have you ever wondered why the plays of William Shakespeare are still being read and remain popular after four hundred years while most books written fifty years ago are already out of print?
