  • Re-centralization of Halachah Essential to the Mission of Judaism
    on Oct 26, 2016

  • Redemption Without Cataclysm
    on Aug 5, 2016

  • A Defense of Torah Based Zionism
    on Jul 26, 2016

  • Bringing Peace to the Middle East

  • By What Standard Compromise?
    on Mar 2, 2016
    For 2000 years the Jews have had one method of prayer at the Western Wall, as one congregation. The new compromise to cater to some Reform activists is not religious in nature but political. Only the Rabbis of Israel should be deciding what to do wit...

  • Filtration of Terror Rather than Mere Separation
    on Jan 18, 2016
    The Prime Minister's office pledged to catch the most recent murderer. But to fully police terror, there should not just be a policy to avenge it, but to prevent it as well. Not merely in the failed ways of the past. Build a wall, hide behind it, tr...
  • Peace Before Multilateralism
    on Dec 11, 2015
    Diplomacy is the pursuit of a patient exploration of the emotions and freely chosen needs and priorities of all sides in a dispute. Bilateralism is two sides talking it out. Multilaterism is, theoretically, a friendly but non partial third party help...

  • Temple Mount Status Quo Fuel of Violence
    on Oct 7, 2015

  • Toward a Unified Policy on the Temple Mount
    on Aug 16, 2015

  • The "Everyone Loses" Nuclear Agreement with Iran
    on Jul 16, 2015
