Why I Entered Politics Now
I discussed my decision to enter politics with my children a lot. I realized that there were too many questions with no reasonable answers; too many issues not being addressed.

We can't put it off any longer.

 Women learn Torah too
ts not news to anybody, women also learn Torah. For quite some time now, Torah learning isnt exclusively a mens domain. For more than twenty five years women have been learning Torah Lishma, for Hashems sake, in Batei Midrash and in other places: investigating, learning in depth, delving into the Torah.

 When marriage is a crime
Not too long ago, rabbis all over the world were allowed to preside over weddings wherever they were. There was no registry and there was no governmental body overseeing the individual rabbis.

 A Jewish Israel, equal for all
Patricia Marks Greenfields Op-Ed for the Washington Post last week missed the point entirely. She took experiences in Israel and molded them into a worldview.

Putting aside the impractical, illogical and incomprehensible argument for a one-state solution, it is her call for Israel to become a secular state that requires a response. More

 The Power of Kindness and New Immigrants
During the summers, my children attend a camp at which they take advantage of the gorgeous weather and surroundings which Israel affords to do tiyulim (hikes), all over our country. The first day of camp, I walked my youngest daughter to the meeting point. More

On the eve of Yom Kippur, Aliza Lavie read an interview with an Israeli woman who had lost both her mother and her baby daughter in a terrorist attack. As Lavie stood in the synagogue later, she searched for comfort for the bereaved woman, for a reminder that she is a part of a great tradition of Jewish women. A Jewish Woman's Prayer Book, - winner of the 2008 NATIONAL JEWISH BOOK AWARD, is the result.
