You probably know that November 28 is Thanksgiving … but did you know it is also the first day (and second night) of Hanukkah? These two holidays coincided only once before (125 years ago). And they will not do so again until the year 79,811 but I think the Messiah will return well before then!…

I was born in Israel on the holiest of Jewish festivals, Yom Kippur,” the Day of Atonement. I believe God has had His hand on me ever since, to show His grace and wonderful mercy. I grew up in a secular home where we followed all the traditions and kept the holidays, but these observances…

As we start the year with fresh hope, it seems like the odds are stacked against us. According to a recent U.S. News & World Report study, eighty percent of New Year’s resolutions are bound to fail. Even in light of that number, I’m not a cynic—I’m an optimist. But my hope is grounded in…
“You’re weird!” she blurted out to me. I was in the fifth grade and was trying to win a young girl’s affection. Her remark assaulted my confidence, so I slunk away hot-faced with embarrassment. I thought about this incident recently when I participated in a special Jews for Jesus outreach in New York City. One…
It’s only human to focus on our problems, of course. But no matter what problems we may be facing, we still have so many reasons to thank God.
With the World Series coming up, some might wonder if by “triple play” I mean that most rare event that makes baseball fans cheer ecstatically. I am an avid fan, but I’m actually referring to a Jewish triple play—because it’s rare that all three of the Fall Feasts of Israel occur in the month of October.
