Adam Dickter's Continuum
It’s tough when you have to disagree with things your kids are taught at school. But I have always objected to hyperbolic analogies, and at yeshivas they are sometimes in plentiful supply. One example is that many rabbis tell their students that humiliating someone is the same as killing him or her.

A few weeks ago, I was wondering what was going through Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu's head when he decided to attend next week's nuclear summit in Washington, where representatives of 47 countries, including many of heads of state, will gather to talk about nuclear terror, and in the process produce what local officials say will be some record-breaking traffic gridlock.

Abigail in Love (Maybe)
How's this for a story?
An old friend got in touch out of the blue because she had a guy for me. That alone was newsworthy, but the thing that I could really write home about was the fact that this guy and I seemed to really click. And I mean, really! We had so much to say to each other on our first date that for a moment there I dared to think that maybe, possibly, I had even met someone.
