It’s like the beginning of a bad Polish joke: a group of Polish politicians go into a room to debate their role in the Holocaust…. The problem is there’s no funny punch line, except to underscore all the other funny punch lines of many more Polish jokes before. The bill that was approved by the Polish lower house of parliament …

This past week Israel commemorated the 70th anniversary of one of its most heroic, sad, and yet pivotal battles in its early struggle for independence, among ongoing battles to defend itself until today.  I was reminded of the anniversary when I drove by a pristine Judean mountain location known as “Battle Hill.” But had I forgotten that it was the …

Recently I got to spend more time over one week in Jerusalem’s City of David than I’ve spent there in the past 3000 years. Living a mere 15 minutes from Jerusalem I try to be mindful of how incredible it is to have the privilege to be in the holy city often, even for things as mundane as business meetings, …
