Chayim Aruchim Event Highlights Conscience And Religious Freedom In Healthcare

Roger Severino, director of the United States Department of Health and Human Services' Office for Civil Rights, was the guest speaker at an informative briefing presented by Chayim Aruchim, a project of Agudath Israel of America, championing every individual's right to exercise their religious freedom even when faced with life-threatening illness.



Israel is the Source of Worldwide Anti-Semitism

The media reported the fact that the Mossad has invested millions in protecting Jewish institutions around the world. How paradoxical this is. We find ourselves seventy-one years after the establishment of the State, which professed to mitigate if not eradicate anti-Semitism in the world.

Not only does the State not constitute a cause for reducing anti-Semitism but it in itself is the primary source of its resurgence. How ironic it is that a country needs to invest millions in order to provide security for Jewish institutions around the world against anti-Semitism both from Christians and Moslems together.

But newspapers can't really catch the essence of an incident that defies verbal description. A three-and-a- half year old had been run over. But how do we feel upon learning that when his coat got caught in the door, he innocently cried out: "Wait a minute. Wait." A pure, innocent, three-and-a-half year old who had no idea that the world from which he parted is far more complicated than he had assumed.

Let us study the following sentences: "I'm incapable of doing that." "I'm just not built for it." "I simply can't do that." "Sorry, it doesn't fit in with my character."
