My husband has had a job in finance for around 15 years. He is very good at it and makes a nice living but it is a stressful job and he is under a lot of pressure. He has recently begun complaining a lot and is overwhelmed by work. He took off a few weeks recently and that helped, but only briefly. He is talking about changing careers but I don’t know why he suddenly can’t handle it. He says he just isn’t interes …
I appreciate your column and insights and I would like to get your opinion on something that has been bothering me for a long time. I am afraid to do hagbah. I have only done it once in my life (with a really small Sefer Torah). I should be strong enough but I just have such a fear that I will drop the Sefer. I usually duck out of shul when it’s time for hagbah so that the gabbai won’t approach me. If I do get asked I …

My friends know and really don't think about it—it really has no effect on my life. Do you think it is necessary to g …

This apology, though, is simply to fulfill a "debt" to the other. We have wronged the other and "owe" him an apology. But what if n …

The four most common theories of punishment of criminals are: retribution, deterrence, rehabilitation, and incapacitation. (The Oxford Handbook of Criminal Law, Edited by Markus D. Dubber and Tatjana Hörnle, Part III, S …
Masks and Us – Parshat Ki Tissa/Purim
It is really cool how the weekly Torah reading seems to be especially chosen to correspond with current events, personal milestones or events in the Jewish calendar. Or maybe it is simply our creative ability to find throughout the Torah those messages which are particularly applicable to these events. Or perhaps the Torah is just so full of meaning that we can always find these meaningful correlating …
