Even in concealment

AN ANGEL walked among us. Now he is no more. Malachi — My Angel — Rosenfeld, riding in a car with his buddies Monday night, on the way home from a basketball meet, was shot at by a Palestinian terrorist.

All four guys were shot; one of the wounds, Malachi’s, was critical. “Matsav anush,” the news said. When you hear these words, you know it means the person is already oscillating between this world and the next.

UN foments the next conflict

Even in memory, in my mind, the tension is still palpable. Last summer I had planned a trip to Vail.

By the time I was driving up, the painful question on all of our minds was: Will Israel be forced to undertake a ground invasion? Would Hamas accept the ceasefire proposal on the table, or would Israel need to take action to defend herself? Thi...

America, not Dylann Roof, should be forgiven

In an expression of extraordinary magnanimity, relatives of the black church members murdered in Charleston, SC, arose one after the other to tell Dylann Roof, the murderer of their loved ones, that they forgive him. That I do not agree with what they did in no way diminishes my ability to be moved by their gesture. But I do not agree with it.
