    Previously we've discussed 20 specific signs that were foretold in the Bible indicating that Christ's coming is now imminent. This new list is a little different - these are ten indicators that we have reached the upper limits of when Christ can return. God is sovereign and we can merely speculate, but I believe there is sound reasoning behind each of these: 1. The culmination of signs From the return of the Jews to their God-given land beginning in the late 1800s, to the rebirth of Israel in 1948 and the recapturing of Jerusalem in 1967, the signs foretold in...

    "It's a fun, lively way to retell the story of Passover," Rabbi Nechemia Coopersmith said.There are many Uptown Funk parodies. A website called GeekDad even listed 10 of them. But what didn't get notice (and should!) is a Passover-themed Bruno Mars parody released by the Jerusalem-based site, that begins, "Pesach, Four cups cold, Holy Moses, Egyptian gold." Passover begins Friday at sundown. Since the real Uptown Funk was such a hit,'s Rabbi Nechemia Coopersmith and his colleagues decided to play off the song, Passover-style. "It's a fun, lively way to retell the story of Passover," Coopersmith said in...

    At Johns Hopkins, reviving a dying art In 1970, Cynthia Ozick published an essay suggesting that in light of the rapid decline of Yiddish among American Jewry, English could serve as the new language of the Jews: "a language for our need." Ozick has since retracted this opinion-and yet, the issues that drove to her raise the idea remain: What role, if any, does Yiddish still play for Jews in this country? If it can be maintained, in what form? Tamar Nachmany, a junior at Johns Hopkins University has a compelling new answer to these questions in the form of...

"By fully explaining himself, apologizing to all he hurt and taking full responsibility for his wrongful actions, Anthony did the right thing," Schumer said. "He remains a talented and committed public servant, and I pray...

    As rates creep up, borrowers with interest-only loans face sharply higher mortgage payments: Tina Gren Clarence saves $600 a month with an interest-only loan she took out about a year ago for a Petaluma home, yet already is considering heading off the financial hit when her monthly payments could jump. And Peter Shidler, whose low-payment-option loan could turn from a sweet deal into a potentially bitter one, is refinancing and still will pay $500 more monthly on his Santa Rosa home. Gren Clarence and Shidler, like two out of three Sonoma County home buyers and owners, joined the fast-growing club...

    An image some considered to be that of the Virgin Mary reappeared today after vanishing under a layer of paint state highway workers had applied to it. A man late Thursday night allegedly used black shoe polish to deface the image, on a concrete wall of the Fullerton Avenue underpass of the Kennedy Expressway. The Illinois Department of Transportation responded by having a crew use brown paint to cover the graffiti. In doing so, they painted over the entire image. All that remained by daybreak was a freshly painted outline, surrounded by flowers and candles of what, in the three...

    Many argue that communism will never be possible because of "human nature". The essence of this false argument is the belief that a communist society would consist of an all-powerful central government that would tell everybody what to do--and would therefore undermine the creative initiative of individuals and the search for happiness. This argument is based on two false assumptions: (1) It assumes that a communist society will look like the former Soviet Union, or the current China, North Korea, etc (ie: corrupt police states with a feudal-style ruling class) (2) It assumes that people will only work in...

    "Oy vey" was too meshuga for the city Transportation Department. The department said Monday it rejected a request from Brooklyn Borough President Marty Markowitz for a sign on the Williamsburg Bridge reading Leaving Brooklyn: Oy Vey! The agency felt the sign, featuring the Yiddish phrase for "oh, woe," would be more distracting than helpful to Manhattan-bound motorists. "Oy vey was originally a Jewish phrase, but everyone knows what it means and it's now a common Brooklyn expression: part of that Brooklyn attitude," said Markowitz, a Brooklyn native. "All I'm trying to do is put a smile on people's faces. I'm...
