Several key players are making last-ditch attempts to block Hamas' rise. Israel and the United States have been trying to pressure Pales- tinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas to bar Hamas from the January vote. More significantly activists in Abbas' own Fatah movement are threatening to sabotage the election and even to turn their guns on Hamas militiamen. Volatility on the Palestinian side could effect Israel's own...

Berger WASHINGTON (JTA) — After staying largely in the shadows for sev- eral years, the organized American Jewish community has jumped full throttle into the debate over the Iraq war. The debate reached a crescendo last week when the Republican Jewish Coalition took a full-page ad in The New York Times, expressing support for the war and chastising the Union for Reform Judaism for a resolution last month denouncing the war and seeking a troop withdrawal. The advertisement led to an open letter from Rabbi David Saperstein, a Reform movement leader, and a response from Matt Brooks, the RJC's executive director. Each accused the other of pretending to represent American Jewish opinion on the war. The debate over the war on the pages of one of the nation's most prestigio...

The more liberal groups cele- brated Tuesday's decision, in which a federal judge ruled that a Pennsylvania school board had acted unconstitutionally when it ordered inclusion of intelligent design in its schools' science cur- ricula. Orthodox groups were less sanguine. Still, most acknowledged that in the context of the "Christmas wars," in which politicians, pundits and television personalities are arguing over how religious Christmas should be in the United States, this decision is more consequential.

The events center on the 1972 Munich massacre of Israeli Olympic athletes, and the subsequent campaign by the Jewish state to hunt down those involved in the murder of its citizens. Carried out in the presence of the inter- national media and televised live, the "Black September" assault on the Olympic Village helped put the Palestinian Arab war on Israel on the interna- tional agenda. And the ability of the Palestinian Liberation Organization to literally get away with murder helped set the stage for much of the car- nage that followed. The film prompts us to ask: What Israel should have done in response? In the film, an actress playing the prime minister of Israel Golda Meir sees the answer clearly: Strike back! If t...

Here are a handful of people to watch in the coming twelve months — some on the way up, some on the way down. Jack Abramoff The once high-flying Republican lobbyist, Jewish benefactor and GOP best buddy has become the most radioactive man in Wash- ington, thanks to controversial deals with Native American gaming inter- ests and his cozy links with top legislators, especially the golf afi- cionados. Now that he maybe about to cut a deal with prosecutors, the scandal could affect some of the biggest names in politics, starting with former House Majority Leader Tom DeLay.

Winston also praised the school's academic test scores and achievement, and noted how remarkable it is that Torah Day School can devote half the day to a rigorous Judaic Studies pro- gram while still maintaining top secular standards. David Agronin, executive director of the Dallas Jewish Community Foun- dation, also emphasized the importance of day school education and of the need for the Dallas Jewish community to support the Jewish day schools. Rabbi Yerachmiel Udman spoke about the lessons of kind ness that can be learned from Avraham in the week's Parsha, and how those lessons have translated into action at TDSD. He explained that Avraham did not just wait for the opportunity to do kind acts, but actively and enthusiastically sought out the opportunity to help others. He said this spirit can be fou...

So I can continue revealing the plotline, which involves Max (played by Nathan Lane channeling Zero Mostel) as a legendary Broadway producer who hasn't had a hit in years. His business practices are suspect as he raises cash to finance his shows by shmoozing elderly widows. Along comes Leo Bloom (Matthew Broderick), a young accountant who casually suggests that Max might be able to profit from a show, if that show were a flop rather than a success. Sounds like a simple plan, nu? Now the only thing to do was to find the worst script ever written. Their prayers are answered when they read the script "Springtime For Hitler," a musical ode to the Fuehr...

Each time this convention recurs, it presents a singular opportunity for our movement to come together to discuss the blessings and challenges associated with the current state of Jewish life in North America. This year, as in years past, Rabbi Eric Yoffie, the president of the URJ, used the conven- tion to communicate his vision for the future of Reform Judaism. At this particular gathering, Rabbi Yoffie spent a considerable proportion of his biennial address focusing on the crisis of synagogue affilia- tion in our country. "Nearly 80 percent of North American Jews will join a syn- agogue at some point in their lives," he said. "But here is the problem: About half of them w...

And yet, I have not said or written a word to describe my loss. It has been almost 30 days that I have not driven on Central Expressway or just to get off the Walnut Hill exit to come and visit him in the nursing home to give him a hug and a kiss and see that he is alright. It has been almost 30 days that I have not packed him my home- cooked meals in small plastic containers to make sure that he eats the food that he loved. Nor have I heard him say "Hagit the food over here is tasteless where is your food?" I write these words and the wound in my heart is gaping. The void in my soul is growing wider. You might think this is strange that a daughter-in-law would love her father-in-law so much but let me explain. Nathan or should I say Zayda, has been a part of my life f...

But will the group's strength in local politics translate into power on the national stage? Hamas' cause is helped by a generational rift in Fatah, the secular ruling party. Unhappy with the list of Fatah candidates for Parliament drawn up by Abbas,young Fatah members broke away last week to form a new party called al-Mustaqbal — "the future" — and sub- mitted a list of candidates of their own, headed by jailed activist Marwan Barghouti. Abbas's ruling group in Fatah — most of which returned to Palestinian areas from Tunis with PLO chief Yasser Arafat in the mid-1990s, after the Oslo accords — are known as "Fatah-Tunis," or the "outsiders." The young generation led by Barghouti is made up of "insiders," Palestinians who grew up under Israeli occupation. "Fatah Tunis,"which has held sway in the territories f...

We grew up in the '40s and '50s with Johnny Ray, "Blue Suede Shoes," Dave Brubeck, and strong Jewish ties. We went to Jewish camps, had steady boyfriends by the age of 13 or 14, and held hands and cried when the state of Israel was born. We were active Zionists in both Habonim and Young Judaea. Most of our activities were cen- tered around the Jewish Community Center. We collected for JNF with our pushkes, and cheered at football and hockey games. We had many parties, wiener roasts, dances and shared good times. We came from immigrant families and "established" families. Some were rich and some were not. We belonged to a Jewish high school sorority where many of us held executive positions. We wore cash- mere sweaters, plaid skirts, bobby sox, and cr...

Rodin, a"h By Rabbi Aryeh Rodin This time the dreaded call came at 12:35 p.m., Dallas time. I had just stepped into my office after giving a Talmud class to my high school stu- dents at Texas Torah Institute, when the phone rang. My brother, Jay, was on the line and in a sad but gentle voice said, "Aryeh, it isn't good." Immediately I knew that Jay was informing me that our beloved mother had passed away. Just 22 months ago, Jay had the unenviable task of telling me that our remark- able father had left this world and now, once again, he bravely accepted the same role. Realistically speaking, my mother's passing was not unex- pected. Yet, emotionally, the death of a parent is always a shock. Six days before her passing, my mother, who lived in Monsey, N.Y., felt fatigued and was examined by her physician. He determine...

But what is there about Hellenistic Greek culture that caused Judaism to fight against it with such strength? After all, the Greek civilization gave us the phi- losophy of Plato and Aristotle, the mathematics of Pythagoras, the the- ater of Sophocles and Aeschylus, the epic poetry of Homer, and the sculpture of Praxiteles. Our great sage Maimonides cites Aristotle with great respect, and his work "Shmoneh Perakim" (an introduc- tion to Mishnah Avot) is almost a precise translation of Aristotle's "Nicomachean Ethics." So what is there about Greek culture which was so antithetical to Torah thought? Even those who are not neces-...

Unfor- tunately this number has increased in the months leading up to the hol- iday season. According the Texas Council on Family Violence, 116 women were killed by their male intimate part- ners in 2004. In 2002, a survey revealed that 74 percent of Texans either knew someone who has expe- rienced domestic violence or were victims themselves.
