The time has come for the state with the largest Jewish representation in the country to make our voices heard. Nobody reading this needs to be informed of the horrendous situation in which we find ourselves in present-day America. It can be dangerous to walk down a given street in New York City with your Jewishness showing, and all the more so on a college campus. 

If you watched the Super Bowl on Sunday, congratulations: You were part of history. At 123.4 million people tuning in, Super Bowl LVIII broke the record for the most-watched event in television history, and that would make you a Guinness World Record holder.

If you haven’t been following the insanity of the saga of Adele Andaloro, you are missing out on what may be the most mind-boggling saga in New York right now, and if you own a home here and are not careful, her story can easily become yours.

Three weeks ago, President Biden suffered one of the most disastrous public relations days of any president in history. Special Counsel Robert Hur released a report explaining why charges for mishandling classified documents would not be brought against the President. The report noted that the 81-year’s memory was “hazy,” “faulty,” “poor,” and had “significant limitations.” The President was also unable to recall when his own son, Beau, tragically passed away. All in all, President Biden will not be charged with a crime because the special counsel did not believe that a jury would find Biden to be in his full mental capacity, and therefore, a conviction would be highly unlikely.

The difficulty stems from the idea that the main skill you must impart on your students is critical thinking, a skill the boys tend to hone throughout their Judaic studies curriculum starting in the fifth grade. However, some people were born for such a position.
