    What Comey Deserved

    It's easy to argue that James Comey deserved to be fired, but the FBI Director didn't deserve to be terminated in the clumsy, abrupt way that he was. General Michael Flynn, accused of far more flagrant misdeeds, got to resign his post as National Security Advisor, but the President never…

    Divisions Didn’t Begin With Trump

    Looking back on President Trump's opening months in office, not even the most determined detractors can rightly blame him for dividing the country, since the nation was already deeply divided before he came to office.

    Jerusalem’s Anniversary: Time to Face the Truth

    This June marks the 50th anniversary of the re-unification of Jerusalem following Israel's victory in the Six Day War.

    Look Forward, Not Backward

    If the American people seem increasingly disgusted with both major political parties, that's due at least in part to the tendency of each of the two sides to look backward rather than forward.

    As Jewish people around the world prepare to celebrate Passover on April 10th, it's worth recalling an often-ignored aspect of the Exodus story.
