Last week, representatives from the Jewish Voice were present at a gala hosted by Israel’s Beit Morasha, a forward-thinking educational institution that promotes Jewish national unity in a variety of ways, in part through efforts to ease the conversion process for olim (immigrants to Israel) who have a sense of Jewish identity, through cultural and/or familial ties, but who are not yet Jewish according to halacha.

This, Balaban claims, is a violation of the congregation’s own rules, and in her lawsuit she demands that the body be

As the world watches and waits the next move from Tehran, vis-à-vis its threats to block the Straits of Hormuz, which would virtually terminate all oil exports from the region, we sit and ponder the earth-shattering ramifications of such a stark provocation. We not only ask ourselves why the international community resists assuming an offensive posture against the rogue state, but far more importantly we, as members of the Jewish nation and proud supporters of freedom and democracy must ask
