RABBI'S CORNER


TELLING  LIES


By RABBI DR. RAYMOND APPLE

Q.  Would Jewish ethics applaud George Washington who is said to have been unable to tell a lie? 


A.        I knew an Australian synagogue where they taught their pupils to sing (in English) a song that went, "Be the matter what it may, always tell the truth…"

It sounds just like George Washington – but actually the problem is much more complicated.

​CAPITOL RIOTS: FBI WARNINGS AMID FEARS OF MORE PRO-TRUMP VIOLENCE

 


The FBI is warning of the possibility of armed protests being held across the US in the days before Joe Biden is sworn in as president. There are reports of armed groups planning to gather at all 50 state capitols and in Washington DC in the run-up to his 20 January inauguration. The fears come as security plans are hardened for the event itself.


​On Monday, Mr Biden told reporters he was not afraid to take the oath of office outside of the US Capitol. Both he and Vice-President-elect Kamala Harris are still expected to be sworn in outside the building, only two weeks after it was the site of a deadly raid by radical supporters of President Donald Trump opposing the election result.

















From the New York Times Bestselling author of

JBS CONGRATULATES VICE PRESIDENT ELECT JOSEPH BIDEN AND MADAM VICE PRESIDENT ELECT KAMALA HARRIS











As the President of the Jewish Broadcasting Service (JBS), America’s national Jewish television channel, it is an honor for me to congratulate former Vice President Joe Biden on his formal election as the next President of the United States, and to congratulate former Senator Kamala Harris on her becoming the next Vice President of the United States.

We all wish them both four years of great success in leading our country.  We especially look to their restoring a sense of unity among the polarized populations of our land in which those who supported their election as well as those who supported the re-election of Donald Trump are all embraced as patriotic Americans.
