To be patient, can be better than to be rich.   —   Jewish saying

[ J E W I S H  L I V I N G ]

Shavuos: Custom-made
for American Jews?

By Rabbi Avi Shafran

Shavuos, one of the trio of Jewish "pilgrimage" festivals that also includes Passover and Sukkos, tends to get short shrift from most American Jews. Coming mere weeks after the Passover seders, perhaps the "first-fruits festival" simply finds many folks "holidayed out." Or maybe it's because Shavuos lacks any unusual "mitzvah-food" of its own like matzoh or ritual practice like building a sukkah. Whatever the reason, though, Judaism's summer-season holiday has come to be neglected by much of the American Jewish community.

And yet, the argument could convincingly be made that no other Jewish festival is more timely or urgent for unity-challenged American Jewry.

The Supremacy of Reason
By Rabbi Yonason Goldson

Conventional wisdom sees an incompatibility between faith and reason. Careful consideration, however, reveals that every single one of us truly does rely on faith. Whether we are scientists or laymen, clergymen or atheists, faith is as essential to our lives.

Fast Times at the
Church of the Nativity

By Bob Tyrrell

Hey, you remember that stand-off in Bethlehem. You know, the one at one of Christendom's most sacred shrines. A couple of weeks after the standoff began, Western reporters began reporting on the disgusting conditions, the intolerable suffering.

Wounded "fighters" were dying or dead. The stench was overwhelming from the dead, the dying and the unsanitary conditions suffered by the large number of people with insufficient access to toilets or to showers. There was not enough food and really not even enough air, at least fresh air.

Well, it turns out that the poor "Palestinians" turned a House of G-d into Animal House.

Two can play the aggression game, but only one will win: Wake-up "Palestinians"
By Charles Krauthammer

The fire will cease in the Middle East not when a piece of parchment is signed (remember Oslo?) but when the Palestinians conclude that they are no longer winning, that the Israelis are not going to give up and go away, as they did from Lebanon. Israel's offensive has begun to restore the deterrent that Israel forfeited with its unceasing concessions under Oslo and its precipitous withdrawal from Lebanon.

Palestinians will now have to recalibrate their thinking about Israeli will, rethink the impunity they imagined the "international community" would provide them, recalculate the efficacy of terror.
