Hey, Maimonides School, Ever Hear of “Exile”?

posted by David Klinghoffer

Unfortunately, I don’t have a lot of sympathy for the team of Orthodox Jewish high school students who are suing to compete in a national mock trial competition. The team from the Maimonides School in Brookline, Mass., won their state […]

Up from Secularism

posted by David Klinghoffer
