Most visitors are surprised at what ability they have under the tutelage of Jeremy and Mandy. The average amount of time spent at The Workshop is two...

Elizabeth—Egos. Human sentiments playing themselves out on a world stage. Partisan politics mixing with the Obama Administration’s progressive moves to sign a nuclear treaty with Iran, a nation that has in the past encouraged the annihilation of Israel.

Danny Ayalon has been through the drama before. He was Israel’s ambassador to the US from July 2002 until November 2006. His service occurred during the administrations of Israeli Prime Minister Ariel Sharon and US President George W. Bush

Wednesday, while traveling to speak to high school students at the Jewish Education Center in Elizabeth, Ayalon spent some time discussing with JLNJ what seems like a political runaway...
