    efore the Democratic Partyís lurch to the Left and his selection by Barack Obama, Joe Biden saw himself as a quasi-Dixiecrat. In his first try for the Democratic Presidential he bragged that he had received an award from George Wallace and boasted that ďDelawareans were on the side of the South in the Civil War.Ē In 1982, as he was probably beginning to plan that campaign, Biden thought he could appeal to the perceived nativism of the Dixiecrats by publicly threatening to cut off aid to the Jewish state. In July of that year, he used an appearance of Israeli...

    Almost all the polls say that US President Donald Trump is heading towards defeat at the hands of his Democrat challenger, former Vice President Joe Biden next month. But Robert Cahaly, who heads the Trafalgar Group polling firm, disagrees. Cahaly was the only major pollster that accurately called the 2016 presidential race. In an interview with The Political Trade podcast last week, Cahaly said his data show Trump headed for another upset victory Nov. 3.Cahaly said that today, as in 2016, the disparity between his numbers and the marquis polling firms' numbers owes to the latter's systematic neglect of what...

    10/16/2020: Marking 74 Years Since the "Purim Fest 1946!" Purim Code October 16, 1946 -- Shortly before Nazi Julius Streicher was executed, he yelled, "Purimfest 1946!" As it turned out, details of the Nuremberg trials and the sentencings had some unusual parallels with the Scroll of Esther. Among other things, the peculiar small letters within the list of Haman's sons (chapter 9) spell out the year of the events: (5)707. As he reached the platform Streicher cried out, 'Now it goes to G-d.' He was pushed the last two steps to the mortal spot beneath the hangman's rope. The rope...

    When he dedicated the Temple he built on Mount Moriah, King Solomon prayed that Godís house would be a center of prayer for all the peoples of the world. Now, in the wake of the recent Abraham Accords Ė the normalization agreement entered into by Israel, the United Arab Emirates and Bahrain Ė the possibility exists that Solomonís aspiration could be recreated. Part of the avowed rationale for the accords was to create enhanced access for all Muslims to worship at al-Aqsa Mosque. This was lofty, with humanitarian intent, and a realpolitik gesture designed to discredit both the reflex accusation...

    An ultra-Orthodox Israeli student now living in Colombia said that he spotted a kosher red heifer on Wednesday that would be available immediately upon the coming of the Messiah reports Radio 2000. The man took footage of the animal, and claims that halakhic (Jewish legal) authorities have confirmed that at first glance, it is indeed kosher. The student purchased the cow for an undisclosed but ¬ďlarge¬Ē sum of money. Currently, the Temple Institute who approved its purchase is waiting to ensure that she doesn¬ít grow any white or black hairs. If it doesn¬ít it will be officially declared a red...

    Hayom harat olam. Today the world was created. Who doesn't keep to their Jewish calendar these days! Even if you have decoupled Easter from Passover, you'll still find interesting the fact that the Jews have a calendar almost 5781 years old. And today is the day G-d said "Let there be light" on the first day of creation. The sixth day of creation is Rosh Hashana-- because the head of the year begins when man (Adam-- from the Hebrew words "earth/dust" and "similar" because Adam was from the dust, and had faculties that reflected G-d's faculties, so to speak***, of...

    There have been 5,780 holidays of Rosh Hashanna since the creation of the world but if a prominent rabbiís prediction proves true, in just a few short weeks, Rosh Hashanna number 5,781 will be quite special. Rabbi Shalom Arush, an Israeli Breslov rabbi and founder of the Chut Shel Chessed Institutions, made an entirely uncharacteristic announcement: On September 18, Jews will be celebrating the last New Year without the Messiah. ďI am going to tell you with certainty that Hashem (God, literally Ďthe name) will help us meet together after Rosh Hashanna,Ē Rabbi Arush said in an interview last week....

    Rabbi Azaria Ariel, traveled to an undisclosed ranch in Israel to lead the Temple Institute’s efforts to raise a red heifer for the performance of the commandment of producing the purifying ashes of the red heifer. He recently inspected the current red heifer candidates and shared their status. One of the two more mature candidates is still very viable, even though it has a few hairs which aren’t sufficiently red, as required by halacha (Jewish law). Two new candidates were born in the early months of 2020, and they are currently viable. The ordinance of the red heifer is described...

    "May you live in interesting times," is purportedly a Chinese curse and our current reality. The requests for help are relentless. People need groceries, prepared meals, face masks, prayer, physical assistance, spiritual guidance and transportation. For many, life has changed dramatically. But one thing hasn't changed: religious non-profit are still serving their fellow man. In keeping with social restrictions, tactics have adjusted, but the faithful continue to make life better for those around them. In our own little corner of the world, both Hebrew Academy and Chabad of Coral Springs are distributing food, checking on elderly neighbors and running errands...

    Houston physician and pastor Stella Immanuel Ė described as ďspectacularĒ by Donald Trump for her promotion of unsubstantiated claims about anti-malaria drug hydroxychloroquine as a ďcureĒ for COVID-19 Ė has some other, very unconventional views. As well as believing that scientists are working on a vaccine to make people less religious and that the U.S. government is run by reptilian creatures, Immanuel, the leader of a Christian ministry called Fire Power Ministries, also believes sex with demons causes miscarriages, impotence, cysts and endometriosis, among other maladies. It has opened her up to much ridicule. But, as a scholar of early...

(Genesis 1:1), and according to Rabbinic tradition, the very first commandment given to the children of Israel after being delivered from Egypt was to sanctify the "New Moon" (Exodus 12:1-2), thereby causing the fledgling nation to depart from the solar tradition of the Egyptians (Ra worship) and to look to the moon for a new means of reckoning times and seasons....

The explosion generated an enormous shock wave that was actually visible in the videos. Buildings as far away as 6 miles from the source of the explosion were damaged. Streets were filled with shattered glass. Rabbi Yosef Berger, the rabbi of King Davidís Tomb on Mount Zion,...

The comment was made in an article that mentioned a letter that the ECLA, along with 26 other churches, sent to the US congress in opposition to the annexation plan. The letter...
