    …or bat-mitzva? Signed, Davening to Know Dear Davening, At BEKI minors (pre-benei-mitzva youth) are allowed, indeed encouraged, to read Torah (with some exceptions and reservations). This is not the case in most communities because generally children do not know how to read Torah or because it is an honor reserved for adults, not as a matter of law but as social etiquette. There is no legal barrier to minors reading Torah or having an aliya (again…

Those Golden Flakes of Corn™ were manufactured in South Africa. On the back of the box I found not the latest promotion with some cartoon or sports figure, but rather 3 instructions for use: In verb and image, a step-by-step guide to eating Corn Flakes.

We recognize the Arabic Acronym HAMAS (for Haraqat al-Muqawima al-Islamiya) as the name of that Palestinian social-service agency which provides vocational training for suicide bombers. It is only coincidence — if you believe in coincidence — that it sounds like, and indeed is spelled the same way as, the Hebrew word hamas. (It is also only coincidence that the word bush in Hebrew means “shame”; that kerry is an unpleasant sy…

The purpose of this rule is insure that the deceased’s property rights, some of which may be entwined with the widow, will remain within his tribe, and to insure that the widow has the support she needs. But over the years, the tribal territories were lost, women gained independent property rights, and polyga…

  • Don’t Call Me Non-Orthodox
    https://www.beki.org/dvartorah/dont-call-me-non-orthodox/

    We don’t normally call people non-men, non-Democrats, or non-tall. It seems strange, even offensive, therefore, to call Jewish people or ideologies “non-Orthodox.” Yet so often the press refers to the Conservative (and Reform) Movements as “non-Orthodox.” Describing Conservative Judaism as “non-Orthodox” implies that Orthodox Judaism is some standard from which it deviates. When used by some writers, it is meant intentionally to negate the validi…

The fact that my great-great-great grandfather Dov ben Ze’ev lived in northern Israel does not give me a “first come” claim over people who subsequently lived there. But the notion that Arabs are somehow more “native” than Jews is an historical absurdity. Yet it is a notion that underlies much of the writing of the European and American press, and that is held dearly by some Palestinian Arab pro…

It is clear to me that the broader issues require far-reaching development of Jewish law, and I hope that it will happen. The current papers of the CJLS each — including Rabbi Joel Roth’s essay — suggest paths that could be explored. In the meanti…
