    …propriate to talk at all except as necessary for the funeral. In a shiva house, furniture may be overturned and mirrors covered, and mourners may have their shoes off and wear torn clothes. These unusual sights serve to remind visitors that things are not “normal,” and that the lives of the mourners have been overturned. When making a shiva call, it is considered correct to wait for the mourners to speak and to keep the conversation to their conce…

When we sit back and wish away those who call for political murder, pull guns, call us “bloodsuckers,” paint swastikas on public buildings–when we still the voice of Jacob, then the hands that act will be those of Esau. In addressing the insensitivity shown by Governor Rowland in his Thanksgiving Proclamation which implied that the festival is a Christian festival, we need to be consistant and persistant in attempting to persuade others o…

    …experience, is out. In our civic organization — political party, community organ, even a synagogue, new leaders rise and the old are forgotten. The years of experience, the decades of dedication, the cumulative contribution. It’s the new members’ Shabbat, not the “last year’s dues payers Shabbat.” At worst, the old are forgotten or excluded; at best, taken for granted. I sometimes hear folks say, “I don’t fit in at BEKI anymore. The young people —…

    …the love will be eaten up…” (Robert N. Goldman, Einstein’s God, (Northvale, NJ: Jason Aronson) 1997, p. 51). And as for Jewish clergy, he called one non-Conservative rabbinic body “fools in clerical garb” for expelling rabbis who disagree with some doctrine. Einstein believed that we should use all of the powers of science and logic to understand the world, no matter where that investigation leads us. Our sage Moses Maimonides, writing some 800 y…

Our own synagogue, our United Hebrew School, Ezra Academy, Kadima-USY, Makom, JTS, MERCAZ, Masorti-Israel — and above all our own family — these are the institutions that we must support. No one else is going to Jew it for you….

And I answered, O Adonai Elohim, thou knowest. Again Adonai said unto me, Prophesy upon these bones, and say unto them, O ye dry bones, hear the word of Adonai. Thus saith Adonai Elohim unto these bones; Behold, I will cause breath to enter into you, and ye shall live: And I will lay sinews…

My opposition to judicial execution (the “Death Penalty”) is based on a lack of faith in the judicial system, not in a fundamental objection to the government killing people when required, so it should not stand in the way of my appointment. Unlike other local clerics and public officials, I have never actually been convicted of a felony, which ma…

Specific prayers have been written over the centuries to atone for specific sins. I think that VaYiqra also represents the dedication that Jewish people have to the Jewish religion. I’ll tell you a short story. You know that we spent a year in Jerusalem. One day, Ima, Tali, and I were visitin…
