Talmon, Israel - June 28, 2022 - In a small ceremony held recently by the natural springs outside Talmon in the Binyamin area of Judea and Samaria, Israel Magen Fund (IMF) founder David Rose presented a fully equipped firefighting ATV to the volunteers in the Binyamin Security Division – the second in a series of four.

IMF is dedicated to supporting Israel’s medical and security sectors through transparent, direct and communicative giving.
Binyamin Regional Council head Israel Ganz noted that, with over 18,000 emergency calls a month from terror and arson attacks to hiking, biking and car accidents, the volunteers of the Binyamin Security D...
Baltimore's City Council passed a bill to create a police accountability board during their meeting, Monday night.
The bill passed with several amendments, including one that will allow for former officers to serve on the board.
Each jurisdiction in Maryland is required to have a police accountability board by Friday, July 1. That's mandated by a law that passed in the state's General Assembly last year.
The bill now goes to the desk of Mayor Brandon Scott for his signature.
With the average price for gas at $4.83 a gallon on Tuesday and nearly a million Marylanders expected to drive for the July 4 holiday, Sheetz gas stations statewide have lowered the price of two of its gasolines through the weekend.

Korach was a cynical demagogue who launched a mutiny against Moshe. This was nothing holy about his intentions. The actual claims he lodged however, did carry legitimacy. He asserted equal rights for every individual member of society, foreshadowing the great arguments of modern democracy.
"We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, …. Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness". These words, written in the Declaration of Independence in 1776, and carved into history, launched the great project of modern democracy. For the first time, governments preserved basic human rights, including the freedom of worship. No longer banned, Judaism flourished. Yet the culture which democracy has...
A political shift is beginning to take hold across the U.S. as tens of thousands of suburban swing voters who helped fuel the Democratic Party’s gains in recent years are becoming Republicans.
More than 1 million voters across 43 states have switched to the Republican Party over the last year, according to voter registration data analyzed by The Associated Press. The previously unreported number reflects a phenomenon that is playing out in virtually every region of the country — Democratic and Republican states along with cities and small towns — in the period since President Joe Biden replaced former President Donald Trump.
But nowhere is the shift more pronounced — and dangerous for Democrats — than in the suburbs, where well-educated swing ...
Baltimore, Md - June 27, 2022:
Dear JCC Friends,
Keeping our JCC community safe is of upmost importance. We wanted to share that this morning we received an email bomb threat on a website information form. As per our security protocols, we immediately notified our security consultant and local authorities. The local police conducted extensive sweeps of both JCC campuses accompanied by members of our executive and senior management teams. Both JCCs have remained fully operational.Unfortunately, we have received many of these non-credible threats over the past few months--as have multiple JCCs across North America. We are working with our local precinct, the FBI, and the Secure Community Network (SCN) to help determine the source of these threats. SCN is the official homeland securit...

Pending home sales unexpectedly broke a six-month streak of declines in May, climbing 0.7% to a reading of 99.9, according to the National Association of Realtors.
Economists surveyed by Refinitiv were expecting a decline of 3.7%. An index of 100 is equal to the level of contract activity in 2001.
On a regional basis, contract signings jumped 15.4% month over month in the Northeast, increased 0.2% month over month in the South, fell 1.7% month over month in the Midwest and contracted 5% in the Midwest. The figures mark year-over-year declines of 11.9%, 13.8%, 8.8% and 19.8%, respectively.

Baltimore County, MD - June 27, 2022 - Baltimore County Public Library and Baltimore County Government are making improvements to the Pikesville branch and Senior Center. Reisterstown, Owings Mills and Randallstown remain open.
It used to be said about the U.S. Department of State, that they don’t let the facts get in the way of policy. So it is in the world of health and wellness. Take a step back for a moment. Look carefully around you. If you live in a western country (some are better than others), you know people with type 2 diabetes, heart disease, Alzheimer’s, different cancers, high blood pressure and high cholesterol. You probably also know people with some autoimmune disease and the odds are that you know people whose quality of life has be adversely effected by illness or have succumbed to sickness at a seemingly early age. None of this really has to be! While it’s true that there is nothing bullet proof to keep anyone from getting sick, it is ...
Recipients Include Organizations that Support Community Health, Personal Growth, and Education
New York, June 27, 2022 – Medical school, law school and other professional programs offer paths to lucrative careers. But due to their time-consuming and often expensive nature, aren’t typically conducive to simultaneously starting a family.

The five organizations were chosen from a field of 71 applicants; each will receive a $10,000 grant to facilitate further growth. In addition to e...
Baltimore, MD – June 27, 2022 – 12:05PM - Northbound I-895 Harbor Tunnel is closed due to oversized tractor-trailer at entrance
New York, NY – Dianne Lob, Chair, William Daroff, CEO, and Malcolm Hoenlein, Vice Chair, of the Conference of Presidents of Major American Jewish Organizations, issued the following statement: "We commend the decision by the 8th Circuit US Court of Appeals, which ruled that Arkansas’ anti-BDS law does not violate free speech. The Arkansas legislature overwhelmingly approved the anti-BDS law in 2017, which requires public contracts to include a certification that the contractor will not ‘boycott’ Israel. The judges rightfully ruled that the law does not prohibit anyone from ‘publicly criticizing Israel, or even protesting the statute itself. It only prohibits economic decisions that discriminate against Israel,’ and therefore does not infringe on First A...
The chaotic mix of record fuel prices and an unending supply chain crisis have retailers considering the unthinkable: Instead of returning your unwanted items, just keep them.
In recent weeks, some of the biggest store chains, including Target, Walmart, Gap, American Eagle Outfitters and others have reported in their latest earnings calls that they have too much inventory of stuff ranging from workout clothes, spring-time jackets and hoodies to garden furniture and bulky kids' toys. It's costing them tons of money to store it.
Now add on to that glut another category of product that stores have to deal with: returns.
So instead of piling returned merchandise onto this growing inventory heap, stores are considering just handing customers their money back and letting...
The Supreme Court handed a big win to a former Washington high school football coach who lost his job over reciting a prayer on the 50-yard line after games.
At issue was whether a public school employee praying alone but in view of students was engaging in unprotected "government speech," and if it is not government speech, does it still pose a problem under the First Amendment's Establishment Clause.
The Supreme Court ruled Monday that the answer to both questions is no.
"Here, a government entity sought to punish an individual for engaging in a brief, quiet, personal religious observance doubly protected by the Free Exercise and Free Speech Clauses of the First Amendment. And the only meaningful justification the government offered for its reprisal rested on...
