    Earlier this month, 13-year-old Tom Sosnik, wearing a tallit and holding a kiddush cup, marked a transition into manhood with a special ceremony at his Jewish day school. He wasn’t celebrating receiving a first prayer book or a first Bible, or graduating from one grade to another. He wasn’t really observing his bar mitzvah, either. In what was a decidedly nontraditional event, the short-haired teenager was publicly marking his gender transition from girl to boy

    Rep. Steve King says Rep. Steve Israel twisted his comments about Democratic support for Israel, and tells Newsmax TV that the New York Democrat should face him "man to man." "Sure he is [distorting]," King, an Iowa Republican, said Wednesday on "The Steve Malzberg Show" on Newsmax TV. ow "He demanded an apology in a tweet, and he also demanded that the Republican Party repudiate me. "I just tweeted back and said that's the kind of request that he should make eye-to-eye and man-to-man."

    A Jewish school in Paris was evacuated on Thursday — three years to the day after the brutal massacre at a Jewish school in Toulouse, French news website JSS News reported. The evacuation follows disturbing instances of increased antisemitic violence throughout France and Europe. Police searched the classrooms and common areas at the Ecole Alliance Gustave Leven in Paris using bomb-sniffing dogs. Though the report did not indicate whether the police found any explosives, sources did tell JSS News that it was a fairly serious threat. The evacuation at the French school occurred on the third anniversary of the horrific...

    The French National Bureau of Vigilance Against Anti-Semitism (BNVCA) reported that two Jewish teens were assaulted and robbed while leaving a synagogue in Marseille, and as a result of the attack required medical treatment. The attack by two assailants "of African origin" according to the victims occurred on Tuesday. There are many Muslim African immigrants in France, increasing the likelihood of religious hatred being a prime motivator in the crime. Making that likelihood undeniable is the fact that before attacking, the assailants said "dirty Jews, we will exterminate all of you," according to the teens. One of the teens told...

Police said the Rabbi David Weberman and a witness ignored Chaar, at which point he yelled, “Heads will be cut off” and “I will cut your head off.” The victim feared for his life at that point and called 911.

In his joint address to Congress, Netanyahu made a point of recognizing the 86-year old Wiesel, who sat in the Speaker's Box with the prime minister's wife, Sara. With us today is Holocaust survivor and Nobel Prize winner Elie Wiesel." "Elie, your life and work inspires to give meaning to the words, 'never again,'" he added, as lawmakers gave Wiesel a standing ovation. "And I wish I...

    A student's Jewish affiliation became the subject of a heated debate at University of California in Los Angeles (UCLA) earlier this month, after the student government nearly scrapped her acceptance due to her background. Student Rachel Beyda applied to be a member of the UCLA Judicial Board in February, and presented herself as a candidate in front of the Board. However, the meeting quickly dissolved into a debate over whether her Jewish background and affiliation with Jewish life on campus is a "conflict of interest," as can be seen in the video below. The debate begins at 47:30.

    (AFP) Dozens more graves have been vandalised at French cemeteries, the interior ministry said Wednesday, as prosecutors said that the desecration of hundreds of Jewish graves over the weekend in Sarre-Union had a clear “anti-Semitic motive”. The interior ministry said crucifixes were overturned and gravesites disturbed in Tracy-sur-Mer, a tiny town next to the D-Day landing beaches, as well as in Saint-Beat in southwest France in the latest vandalism. Swastikas were found in two other towns, the ministry said. The discoveries came as five teens faced preliminary charges for desecrating hundreds of graves at a Jewish cemetery in the eastern...

The youngest came forward after being shocked by the massive reaction across the country to the vandalism, prosecutor Philippe Vannier said.

French Interior Minister Bernard Cazeneuve said in a statement Sunday that a criminal investigation team is at the damaged cemetery in...

Most of the attacks have come from Muslims, whether immigrants or French-born, many of whom have not assimilated into French society – if not rejecting French society entirely.

    By Joel Leyden Israel News AgencyNew York — October 21, 2014 … Over 4,000 people attended a demonstration yesterday against the “Death of Klinghoffer” opera in New York City. Many were Jewish, some were Christian. All were angry. They all had one objective – to illustrate that this opera about a 69-year-old wheelchair-bound man, who was shot in the head by Palestinian terrorists on the Achille Lauro cruise ship in 1985 was an act of terror – not art. After hearing former New York Mayor Rudy Giuliani discuss the First Amendment and how it also applied to the protesters, listening...

    An El-Al flight from New York to Tel Aviv was turned into an “11-hour nightmare” after hundreds of ultra-Orthodox Jewish passengers refused to sit next to women. According to those on board the flight descended into chaos because of their demands. The flight was full with Israelis, secular, orthodox and ultra-Orthodox Jews – known as Haredim – flying home to celebrate Rosh Hashanah. Even though the passengers had been pre-assigned seats before boarding, the ultra-Orthodox Jews refused to accept the arrangements because their beliefs required that men and women were segregated

    Rapper Ari Lesser penned a catchy song that outlines what Hamas is, and why he thinks it is foolish to support them. The rap, titled “Hamas,” outlines the way the terrorist organization oppresses fellow Palestinians, kidnaps civilians, and fires thousands of rockets in Israel. So you want to criticize Israel that’s cool But if you support Hamas, you’re a fool Unless you want radical Islamic rule And stockpiles of rockets at your kids’ school Remember they send their own people out strapped With suicide bombs blowing up in their lap You think they seek peace, that’s a bunch of crap...
