Some companies such as Walmart Inc. and Robinhood Markets Inc. are cutting staff, but overall layoffs are slowly rising, according to weekly unemployment claims. “Comp...
Trump-endorsed former newscaster Kari Lake, a leading proponent of the former president’s election conspiracy theories in Arizona, has won the GOP nomination to be the state’s next governor. Lake defeated a Republican field that included Karrin Taylor Robson, a real estate developer and former member of the state board of regents whose supporters included term-limited GOP Gov. Doug Ducey and former Vice President Mike Pence. Lake has made the false claim that the 2020 election was stolen a central piece of her campaign and her policy platform, and she has said that she would not have certified President Joe Biden’s narrow victory in the state in the last presidential election. With Ducey limited to two terms as governor, both parties will be vying for the open seat in ...

The Protective Strings Initiative is a campaign to inspire and facilitate the performance of the Mitzvah of Tzitzit.It was founded in 2021 by Benyamin Balakhani, a young father and member of Kehillas Ohr Yisrael Baltimore. He was inspired about the Mitzvah of Tzitzis after hearing a story from a Rav who distributed FREE PAIRS OF TZITZIS to campers because of the protection they offer during the 3 Weeks.

The spies came back and delivered their disastrous report, telling the nation that the land was simply unconquerable. These demoralizing words sent the people into a downward spiral. The nation cried, and it is here that the Talmud records a dramatic statement: “God said, ‘You have cried unnecessary t...
