President Biden and Transgender Day

The American Alliance of Jews and Christians suggests that the president’s message to Christians is clear: There is no longer room in America for you.  There’s no room in America for Christians! That’s the message President Biden imparted to the country last week when he declared Easter Sunday to be ‘Transgender Day of Visibility’. Transgender activists […]

Keeping the Sabbath

Dear Rabbi Daniel and Susan Lapin. I hope you are well. I have a question regarding something that has been ‘on my mind’ for some time and that is ‘what should non-Jews do in regard to observing the Sabbath?’ I was brought up as a Catholic by my parents and so became familiar with the...

Angry, and Showing It

A piece of advice I try to take to heart is, “Don’t get furious, get curious.” That is wonderful advice when a parent, spouse, child, or friend disappoints you. If someone breaks into your home and points a gun, curiosity might need to take second place to a different reaction. Speaking or writing while amid...

The Missing Morality Matrix

You’re in luck if you want a deal on a battery car. Even with government incentives that penalize Kansas farmers to underwrite the purchase of Teslas in Beverly Hills, e-cars aren’t selling. General Motors has abandoned its e-car production targets. Mercedes Benz is offering discounts of up to $5,000 to buyers of its electric vehicles....

Connect the Dots

Have you seen the connect-the-dots pages meant for adults? As five-year-olds, we may have done a simple page of that type, moving from the dot placed next to the number 1 until we reached the dot next to the number 20. Perhaps a clown or a truck greeted us if we did everything in the...

What I Didn’t Say

How many times have you replayed a conversation in your mind, knowing exactly what you should have said, but didn’t? Alternatively, you might fixate on what you did say and shouldn’t have. When I occasionally subbed for my husband on his radio show, and then when we co-hosted our Ancient Jewish Wisdom TV show, it...

Napoleon’s Jewish Insight

For children, time seems to move slowly and ponderously. Most of us can remember a school year that seemed to last for 20 months, or a birthday that surely took more than 12 months to return. Adults often have the opposite experience. “What! It’s time to pay taxes again!” Or perhaps, “Didn’t we just put...

Politics, Misery, and Strange Bedfellows

Does misery make strange bedfellows or is it politics that do so? In Shakespeare’s play, The Tempest, “Misery acquaints a man with strange bedfellows,” makes its appearance in a very literal way as the king’s jester crawls under a cloak and finds himself with an unusual bedmate. In 1850, an American essayist massaged those words...

Do as I Do, Not as I Say

Years ago, the little yeshiva in Skokie, Illinois, had a pathetic basketball team.  Just a bunch of slightly nerdy kids stumbling around the court.  Their star forward  dribbled like a drunk trying to stomp a cockroach.  They were so low in the Jewish schools’ league that they usually fell off the bottom of the page....
