Jerry Seinfeld and his family were in Caliber 3. During their visit to Israel last week, they came to us for a special and exciting activity...

    It has been nearly three months since Hurricane Maria devastated Puerto Rico, and the island’s recovery has been slow. The U.S. territory is struggling with shortages of food and medical supplies, and a full 45% of residents still don’t have power.San Juan Mayor Carmen Yulín Cruz blames Washington for failing to devote adequate resources to Puerto Rico’s recovery — she recently dubbed President Trump the “disaster-in-chief”. But a journalist for El Nuevo Día, the newspaper with the largest circulation in Puerto Rico, has found a different culprit: “the Jew.”Columnist Wilda Rodríguez wrote a piece on Monday, titled “What Does ‘The...

    MK Motti Yogev (Jewish Home) on Wednesday spoke with Arutz Sheva on the issue of construction in Judea and Samaria, the debate over the Supermarket Law and MK Yair Lapid’s threats to turn to the Supreme Court to thwart Knesset legislation. “Those who travel in Judea and Samaria see that there is construction, maybe not enough construction, but we are building and will continue to build,” Yogev said, adding, “We are releasing construction plans and we will release more construction plans.” “We concluded eight years of Obama’s construction freeze, which were eight difficult years.

    Zionism was the national liberation movement of the Jewish people, not a colonial enterprise. Nor is Israel in any way like South Africa, where a minority of whites ruled over a majority of blacks, who were denied the most fundamental human rights. In Israel, Arabs, Druze, and Christians have equal rights and serve in high positions in government, business, the arts, and academia. BDS is not a protest against Israel's policies. It is a protest against Israel's very existence. West argued that BDS would encourage Israel to make peace with the Palestinians. I replied that Israel would never be blackmailed...

    Cards Against Humanity is known for its sometimes crude and often slightly offensive cards, but a new extra-offensive expansion pack for the game has gotten it pulled from Target shelves. The Apple-to-Apple’s style game has players complete phrases and answer questions such as “What helps Obama unwind?” And “I’m sorry Professor, but I couldn’t complete my homework because of _____” with cards like “Racism,” “Vehicular manslaughter,” and “Poopy diapers.” The almost always off-color cards recently went a bit too far for some players with its “Chosen People Pack,” an expansion pack for the original game with some cards that seem...

    In an interview with the German newspaper Heilbronner Stimme, the former president of the Central Council of Jews in Germany, Charlotte Knobloch, voiced grave concern Friday over growing anti-Semitic sentiment in the country. She said that public Jewish life is under threat and can only be lived out “in public with police protection and under the most serious security precautions.” Knobloch pointed out the fact that Hanukah celebrations in Berlin and Munich, as well as the large menorahs installed in both cities, were, by necessity, accompanied by massive, around-the-clock police protection. A large menorah installed in the city of Heilbronn,...

    Iran declared Jerusalem the "capital of Palestine" on Wednesday following a parliamentary vote, according to the country's semi-official Fars news agency. Iran's announcement to recognize the holy city as the “Palestinian capital forever” comes in direct response to President Trump's decision to recognize Jerusalem as the capital of Israel. “It comes in response to the recent U.S. decision to recognize Jerusalem as Israel’s capital in hopes of dealing a blow to Muslims,” said Parliament Speaker Ali Larijani, according to Turkey's Anadolu news agency.

    A French children’s magazine has been withdrawn from newsstands after one of its articles listed Israel along with North Korea as places that were not “real countries.” The article in the latest edition of the monthly Youpi magazine, which is aimed at children aged five to eight, caused uproar on social media, with the Israeli ambassador to France saying that she was saying she was “shocked” and French Jewish groups calling for the magazine to be removed from shops. The offending article said that “there are 197 countries, like France, Algeria or Germany.” “There are a few more, but not...

    The Anti-Defamation League expressed "deep concern" Tuesday over a sermon by a Houston imam that included references to killing Jews, but in a statement, the imam expressed remorse for the language he used. He said in no way does he support violence. Local Muslim religious leaders also called the sermon problematic, saying that the imam's message does not represent the views or sentiments of the Houston Muslim community. The ADL said that in a sermon posted on YouTube, Imam Raed Saleh Al-Rousan of the Tajweed Institute in west Houston stated:"Judgment Day will not come until the Muslims fight the Jews....

    A recent survey of four U.S. colleges and universities found that the vast majority of college students do not support efforts for academic boycotts of Israeli professors or educational institutions. The surveys, conducted by the Brandeis University Steinhardt Social Research Institute, were comprised of a variety of questions related to the State of Israel. They were distributed to students attending the University of Michigan, Brandeis University, University of Pennsylvania, and Harvard University. A majority of Jewish students from each of the schools surveyed said that anti-Semitism was not prevalent on their campus. Most Jewish students surveyed did not report any...

    At the end of a meeting with President Donald Trump this fall about the Middle East peace process, attorney Alan Dershowitz turned the conversation to a matter closer to home: The prison sentence of Sholom Rubashkin, the Kosher meatpacking executive then serving a 27-year prison sentence for bank fraud. Rubashkin, whose kosher meat firm AgriProcessors was the subject of a Forward expose in 2006 over the mistreatment of its workers, has been a case célèbre in some circles since his conviction in 2010. Dershowitz is among Rubashkin’s most prominent supporters — and was probably the first to bring the matter...

    Israel has announced it is leaving UNESCO citing the U.N. cultural agency’s “systematic attacks” on the Jewish state. Foreign Ministry spokesman Emmanuel Nahshon said Friday that the decision was based on the organization’s “attempts to disconnect Jewish history from the land of Israel.” He said the official letter of departure will be submitted before the year’s end and that Israel will leave the organization by the end of 2018. Earlier this year the U.S said it will withdraw from UNESCO, also at that time, citing similar reasons. …

    Speaking to diplomats of more than 30 countries on Wednesday, Bennett stressed that “Jerusalem is the eternal capital of the Jewish people, and nothing can change that reality.” Bennett said that the UN vote is “meaningless. Another empty UN vote”. Bennett also told the assembled diplomats that rejecting Jerusalem as Israel’s capital gave a tailwind to terrorism. “Your decision not to vote for Jerusalem as being the capital of Israel shows that all those who use violence against Israel are succeeding,” said Bennett. “It gives them the feeling like their actions are justified.” …

    President Donald Trump threatened Wednesday to cut off U.S. funding to countries that support a resolution criticizing his decision to recognize Jerusalem as Israel’s capital. “We’ll save a lot. We don’t care,” he said, alluding to U.S. aid. The president strongly supported U.S. Ambassador Nikki Haley who said Tuesday that the United States “will be taking names” of countries that vote in favor of a General Assembly resolution Thursday declaring that Jerusalem’s status can be changed only by direct Israeli-Palestinian negotiations. “For all these nations, they take our money and then vote against us. They take hundreds of millions of...

    Full title: D.C. Metro Transit Police officer “attracted to Nazis and Islamic terrorists at the same time. Both hate Jews.” Indeed. The Qur’an depicts the Jews as inveterately evil and bent on destroying the well-being of the Muslims. They are the strongest of all people in enmity toward the Muslims (5:82); they fabricate things and falsely ascribe them to Allah (2:79; 3:75, 3:181); they claim that Allah’s power is limited (5:64); they love to listen to lies (5:41); they disobey Allah and never observe his commands (5:13). They are disputing and quarreling (2:247); hiding the truth and misleading people (3:78);...

    Israel Ambassador to the United Nations Danny Danon slammed the resolution submitted to the UN Security Council calling on it to rescind US President Donald Trump’s recognition of Jerusalem as Israel’s capital. “In these days, when the Jewish nation is celebrating when Jerusalem was liberated thousands of years ago, the Palestinians continue to try and reinvent history,” Danon said. “No vote or discussion will change the clear facts: Jerusalem is and has always been the capital of Israel. This time, too, we will continue to defend our historical truth, together with our allies.” […] According to the draft, “any decisions...

    In recent days, rage directed at the United States, Israel, and Jews has caught fire in Istanbul’s roiling streets. Making matters worse, Turkey’s Islamist president, Recep Tayyip Erdogan seems to have intentionally fanned the flames. This all began Dec. 6, when President Donald Trump declared: “In 1995, Congress adopted the Jerusalem Embassy Act, urging the federal government to relocate the American embassy to Jerusalem and to recognize that that city — and so importantly — is Israel’s capital. This act passed Congress by an overwhelming bipartisan majority and was reaffirmed by a unanimous vote of the Senate only six months...
