B”H, 9 Years in Prison for Nachlaot Pedophile “Rabbi” Zalman Cohen

We had to wait 3 years, but we finally got it…A 9-year prison sentence for Nachlaot pedophile “Rabbi” Zalman Cohen! This good news came on the tail of some horrifically awful news regarding sexual offenders in the State of Israel today. YNet journalist Omri Efraim wrote earlier this week: “Only 1/8 of reported sexual offenses lead to indictments “Large percentage of complaints never lead to indictments, mainly because of lack of evidence. Last year saw a 12% increase in calls to crisis centers, which are demanding that the government...

When My Son-in-Law Was Attacked by the Har Nof Terrorists by Rebbetzin Tziporah Heller

Dear Friends, Yesterday at about 7 AM my daughter Miri called. “Mordechai just came home from shul. He said that Arabs came in and are shooting, and that a man with an axe is hitting everyone. Some of the people threw chairs at them, but it didn’t help”. The twelve-year-old had hit the floor along with everyone else when the bullets began to fly. He was fully aware of what was going on, and what it meant. He somehow found the courage to let go of his father’s hand, crawl towards the exit and break into a run. Some of...

A Hero in Har Nof

“What time did the kids leave this morning?” my husband called downstairs at around 7:20 this morning. “7:05.” Silence. “Is everything OK? Did something happen?” “The kids are fine, but something happened…” were my husband’s words. That was how I found out about the massacre this morning at Har Nof’s “Kehilat Bnei Torah,” located just a few blocks from our children’s schools. The 6:30 AM minyan which was the site of the attack is attended by hundreds of men every morning, including a large number of teachers who...

The Bizarre Chocolate-Chip Cookies

This past Friday, my daughter noticed something downright bizarre written on the package of Osem chocolate-chip cookies in our cabinet. In the middle of the Friday-afternoon, pre-Shabbat Weisberg hullabaloo, I read the following words, “2:25 PM. I wait for these magical hours the entire week. Friday afternoon. Everything is peaceful. This is the time to climb into bed with something interesting to read and with a small tray with hot chocolate and chocolate-chip cookies upon it. One bite melts in my mouth. What a great way to start the...

Israeli TV Star sees Hashem at Birth–and Becomes Religious

Aya Kremerman, the secular co-star of the popular Israeli comedy show “Aya and Shirli,” became religious about 5 years ago. That’s actually not so surprising. Over the years, quite a few non-observant Israeli celebrities have become religious. What’s highly unusual about Aya’s story is what prompted her to become religious. This is how she describes the experience that set her off down the road to a fully religious life. From an interview with Channel 2 (video below): With an ironic smile, Aya explains:...

Sharansky: My 4 Grandchildren Are my Victory over KGB

When a photographer from the magazine “Yeladim” requested to take a photograph of former refusenik (and current director of the Jewish Agency) Natan Sharansky to accompany an article about him, he asked to be photographed next to a small photo on the wall of his office. Sharansky explained, “This is a photo of a KGB building in the former Soviet Union. In this building, the prison guards would tell me over and over, ‘You will never get out of here alive.’ And here you go, here is a photograph of me next to that same building, a few...

Leading Professor Pleads: “Start Having Babies Earlier!”

The following is an excerpt from a “Times of Israel” article by Amanda Borschel Dan about Brandeis Jewish Studies Professor Sylvia Barack Fishman: To have multiple children, women need to start giving birth earlier. This stark biological fact is an unspoken boogeyman that needs to come out of the closet for women to achieve all their life goals, not only professional. [Professor Sylvia Barack Fishman of Brandeis University says]: “As a feminist I want women to have what they want in their lives.” In a society obsessed with...
