On the eve of the first visit to Israel by President Donald Trump, the Security Cabinet voted to approve good-will measures for the PA (Palestinian Authority). All of the minister with the exception of Naftali Bennet and Ayelet Shaked (Bayit Yehudi) gave their approval for the move. It is reported all of the good-will measures are economic and civil and not security related. The good -will measures increasing operating hours at the Allenby Crossing to Jordan, an increase in Palestinian construction in areas ‘C’, with the latter under total Israeli control, and additional industrial zones for the PA. Bennet was particularly vocal in his objections to additional PA construction in areas ‘C’, which are under total Israeli control.

Speaking alongside Israel’s Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, Trump was referencing revelations that he divulged classified information about an Islamic State threat in a recent meeting with Russia’s foreign minister and ambassador.

Trump says, “I never mentioned the word or the name Israel in that conversation.” Netanyahu added that U.S.-Israeli intelligence cooperation is “terrific.” Trump says it’s another story the news media has gotten wrong.

Members of key congressional committees are pledging a full public airing as to why former FBI director James Comey was ousted amid an intensifying investigation into Russia’s interference with the U.S. election. The probe appears to be reaching close to President Donald Trump and his inner circle. In Sunday show appearances, both Republican and Democratic lawmakers said they will press Comey in hearings as to whether he ever felt that Trump tried to interfere with his FBI work. Others are insisting on seeing any White House or FBI documents that detail conversations between the two, following a spate of news reports that Comey had kept careful records. Comey was fired by Trump earlier this month. The former FBI director agreed to testify before the Senate intelligence committee a...

Remember the Republican health care bill? Washington is fixated on President Donald Trump’s firing of FBI chief James Comey and burgeoning investigations into possible connections between Trump’s presidential campaign and Russia. But in closed-door meetings, Senate Republicans are trying to write legislation dismantling President Barack Obama’s health care law. They would substitute their own tax credits, ease coverage requirements and cut the federal-state Medicaid program for the poor and disabled that Obama enlarged. The House passed its version this month, but not without difficulty, and now Republicans who run the Senate are finding hurdles, too. A look at some of those obstacles and what senators are trying to doing about them: SHORT-TERM FIX? GOP senators say...

Mr. President, I appreciate the opportunity to learn about your thoughts and vision. I believe that the unshakable bond between us, along with your determination, will open up new possibilities for the State of Israel and the entire region. Mr. President, we are happy to see that America is back in the area. America is back again. You marked the defeating of ISIS as one of your top missions. This is a most important objective. Israel will do everything in its power in order to assist you in this mission. Israel appreciates America’s leadership, under your Administration, in the action you took in Syria.

It is late Sunday night. Your daughter is up late at night studying for an exam in Parshas HaAzinu. But wait. You hear her memorizing Psukim. You vaguely recall that there is some issue with memorizing Psukim. What is the halacha here? In fact, the custom to make girls memorize Psukim seems pretty prevalent. They often memorize numerous Psukim in Mishlei, Haazinu, Shiras Dvorah, Shiras Miriam, Psukim regarding Bilaam, and Psukim in Yirmiyahu. There is another pressing issue as well. On Shabbos when we recite the Kiddush, many of us do so by heart. In other words, this question does not merely deal with school girls memorizing Psukim, but it affects the men as well. Can they say the Kiddush by heart? THE SOURCE The Pasuk in Shmos (34:37) states, “Write for you these words.&r...
President Donald Trump has paid his respects at the Kosel. Wearing a black Yarmulka, Trump walked slowly toward the Kosel and pressed his right hand flat against the stone for about 30 seconds. He then tucked a prayer note into a deep crevice. His wife and daughter Ivanka, visited the women’s section of the wall. The site in Jerusalem’s Old City was at the center of a recent spat between the two allies following the U.S refusal to say it is part of Israel.

I think that exercise, activity and good eating habits are some of the most important daily habits in our lives.  You already know that.  What you might not know is that it seems that the population at large is finally going to feel the same way.  I can tell you that a few years ago nearly all of my clients came with weight loss as their primary goals.  Today it is different.  Yes weight loss is still a primary consideration, as is lowering blood pressure, sugar and cholesterol.  However, there is a new awareness that taking the proper measure to be healthy isn’t just about your next blood test results and staying off medication.  The ability to function in our daily lives—to do the tasks we need to do and want to do is really what we are tryi...

A senior White House official has said that US President Donald Trump’s bid for a final peace deal between Israel and the Palestinian Authority (PA) can “happen only after certain things change” in terms of the Palestinian leadership’s approach to incitement and terrorism. Trump arrives in Israel tomorrow on an eagerly-anticipated two-day visit that has been clouded by controversy over the last week concerning his administration’s position on Israeli sovereignty over Jerusalem. On Tuesday, Rabbi Marvin Hier – the founder and dean of the Simon Wiesenthal Center in Los Angeles who participated in Trump’s inauguration – told The Algemeiner that National Security Adviser H.R. McMaster had committed an “unnecessary blunder” ...

US President Donald Trump and his entourage arrived in Israel on Monday morning on the second leg of a foreign tour that began in Saudi Arabia on Friday. Trump departed immediately for the holy sites in the Old City of Jerusalem, with stops at the Church of the Holy Sepulchre – believed to be the burial place of Jesus – and the Western Wall. Speaking at the residence of Israeli President Reuven Rivlin, Trump addressed the growing threat to the region posed by Iran. “Most importantly, the United States and Israel can declare with one voice that Iran can never be allowed to possess a nuclear weapon, not ever, ever, and must cease its training and funding of terror groups and militias, and must cease immediately,” Trump said. This is a “deep consensus in...
