NY ATTORNEY EXPANDS INQUIRY INTO TRUMP 'CRIMINAL CONDUCT'











            Donald Trump under Investigation


A New York prosecutor seeking US President Donald Trump's tax returns says he is investigating reported "protracted criminal conduct at the Trump Organization". Monday's court filing suggests the inquiry is broader than alleged hush money payments made to two women who say they had affairs with Mr Trump. The Supreme Court ruled last month that lawyers could examine the tax returns.


Manhattan District Attorney Cyrus Vance Jr has filed a subpoena to obtain eight years of Mr Trump's personal and corporate tax returns, which the Trump Organization is challenging.

RABBI'S CORNER


BACK TO THE FUTURE


By RABBI DR. RAYMOND APPLE


Parashat Va’et’channan contains a repetition (with some changes) of the Ten Commandments, which we encountered for the first time in Parashat Yitro. The natural question is why we need the repeat. One of the many answers is suggested by the commandments themselves. The more we repeat the crucial words, "Do not kill", the more likely the thought is to become natural to our thinking. The more we speak of honoring our parents, the more the rule becomes second nature. Having a second version of the Ten Commandments helps to fix them in our mind. The more we look back at these basic Biblical duties, the more we will bear them with us on our progress to the future.?

SERVING THE LOS ANGELES METROPOLITAN  AREA, AND BEYOND                           

Israeli aircraft struck Syrian military targets on Monday, the Israeli army confirmed in a rare statement. Syrian state media acknowledged the strikes, reporting unspecified "material damage" at military outposts near the capital Damascus. The Israel Defense Forces (IDF) said it was retaliation for a bombing attempt. 


The IDF said earlier it had killed four men planting explosives at the perimeter of the Israeli-occupied Syrian Golan Heights late on Sunday. The Israeli military said the cell had crossed into a section of Israeli territory but outside the border fence.
