Thoughts on the attack on North Shore Hebrew Academys website – The Jewish Standard

| December 23, 2020

Last week, a neo-Nazi hacked North Shore Hebrew Academy and scrawled vicious, disgusting materials across its website. As a college freshman, I cant help putting myself in the shoes of North Shore students and parents, thinking that this easily could have happened to my school. It goes without saying, but this wasnt just an attack on North Shore it was an attack on all Jewry, especially on communities like mine, which choose to be proud, visible, and openly religious.

How can Israels left-wing parties win more Mizrahi votes? – The Jerusalem Post

| December 23, 2020

Many Mizrahim descendants of Jewish communities in the Middle East and North Africa do not vote for left-leaning Israeli parties because of the way such parties treated them. As my sister, an immigrant from Iraq like me, told me recently, I cannot bring myself to vote for any Left party, whether its Mapai and HaAvodah in the past, or Blue and White and others, because they treated the likes of me like dirt when they were the governing parties. To win more seats and better standing in the Knesset, leaders of left-leaning parties, like Benny Gantz of Blue and White, must appeal to my sister and thousands like her

What will Israel’s next government look like? It depends on us! – The Jerusalem Post

| December 23, 2020

We are heading to new elections again! That is not a bad thing, considering the total dysfunctional nature of the current terribly inflated government of ministers with zero responsibility and too many fake ministries.Due to a lacuna in our law, our indicted prime minister who cannot legally be a minister in his own government is allowed to be prime minister. A public servant with the same indictment cannot be a teacher in Israel, nor a community rabbi.Our prime minister should also be indicted and convicted of irresponsibility towards the public for failing to pass a state budget in facing the worst economic crisis with which the country has ever had to deal. The last budget passed in Israel is from 2018

Jews of color exist and heres why it matters – The Jerusalem Post

| December 23, 2020

As identity politics continues to dominate discussions both inside and outside the Jewish world, it must be said that acknowledging additional challenges some groups of Jews face notably women, Mizrahim, blacks and LGBTQ doesnt require us to be divided or pitted against one another.To put it more bluntly, Jewish unity in the fight against antisemitism doesnt necessitate sticking our heads in the sand about privilege within our own communities. Refusing to recognize inequalities, whether historical or present-day, will only enable oppressive trends to continue. We cannot grow and improve as a community, as a country, by sweeping shortcomings under the rug.Todays Jewish community has an extremely diverse and rich history
