Israel and American Jews Should Not Lobby Congress Against The Iran Deal. It's Time for a Different Strategy.
I am in NYC this week and there is a "Stop Iran" rally here in Times Square to urge congress to block the Iran deal. I am not going. Israel is gearing up to push congress to block the deal. I am not supportive of that approach. I think even a winning vote i...

25% המס של כחלון לא יוריד את מחירי הדיור. היצע ואמון יעשו זאת.
(תרגום של הפוסט באנגלית מלפני יומיים ) שר האוצר הנכנס, משה כחלון כבר הציג את הרעיון הראשון שלו להורדת מחירי הדיור: מס רכישה של 25% בקניית בתים לצורכי השקעה. הוא מתכנן ליישם אותו באופן מיידי. נתעלם לרגע מהקושי לקבוע מה נחשבת השקעה ומה נחשב בית, ונתעלם מהעובד...

Shabbat in the 21st Century
A couple weeks ago, I met a guy in his 30s who told me that he thinks that we need to relax the prohibition on using smartphones on Shabbat. After all, he said, it is not really prohibited under any halacha (Jewish law). A few days later, my partner Eden to...

Shabbat has never changed from century to century - sadly, circumstances have led people to be misled into misunderstanding what it is all about...but anyone who really wants to know better and do better can still learn - the same original information is still available to those who ask the right people - things are made simpler by technology to-day, and while keeping the laws the same, problems of working parents can be easily resolved

לא רוצים לממן את המלפגות לבחירות? תצטרפו לעצומה!
ביום שהתבשרנו שאנחנו עומדים בפני בחירות, הרמתי טלפון לעו״ד המנוסה בעתירות לבג״ץ ושאלתי אותו : ״האם אפשר לעתור לבג״ץ נגד מימון מפלגות לבחירות המיותרות האלו ? ״  והערתי ״מספיק לעשוק את משלם המיסים בקמפיינים מיותרים.״ העו״ד ענה לי בשלילה. ״חוק חופש האדם וחירות...

מס "החוסר באמון"
כמוני, אני משער שכולכם נגעלתם מהדרך שבה הוקמה הממשלה הנוכחית. מינוי השרים בדקה ה90 ללא התחשבות ביכולות שלהם או בהצבעת הבוחרים נעשה ב"מסחרה" מהסוג הנמוך ביותר. המשא ומתן הקואלציוני יצר ערבוביה של הבטחות קבלת-פנים והתחייבויות ונעשה באופן מבחיל. בסוף היום, אני...

The "Lack of Trust" Tax
Like me, i assume all of you were disgusted by the way this government came together. The last minute appointment of ministers with little regard for their capabilities or electoral results was the worst kind of horse trading. The coalition negotiating madn...

The One Question You Will Not Hear In the Israeli Government Coalition Negotiations
When I invest in a start up, one of the key missions we undertake is to help the founders build a management team. The most critical factor for the success of a start up is the founding team and the management you build around them.  The Board of Directors ...

A Picture Tells A Story. The Story Tells What is Missing from This Picture
Look carefully at this picture. It was taken this morning. It is a scene that has repeated itself among the Jewish people for thousands of years. On the left side of the picture is my son Yehuda, set to have his Bar Mitzva in one month. This morning he put ...

Rabbis and Politics Are A Toxic Mix
Today, the family of Rav Ovadia Yosef went to his grave to ask forgiveness. They should have asked forgiveness from God and all Israeli Citizens. Yesterday, Rav Shlomo Aviner, publicly (again) attacked both Rav Haim Druckman and Naftali Bennet for breaking ...

Slander from any quarter is not acceptable - people seem find this very difficult to avoid - even in reporting it!

Bibi’s Must Block Lapid’s Budget
It is now after the Holidays in Israel which means it is time for the annual budget haggling and faux coalition crises that always accompany this annual ritual in Israel.  The Budget that Yair Lapid has presented, especially his 0% VAT on housing, is a bad ...
