    …ties, we dismiss it as foolishness or deception. When we realize that this happens to others, we should be able to recognize that the same process happens among the Jewish People as well and shapes our image of God. Jonah Cooper, who recently (2003) celebrated becoming a bar mitzva, described his healthy skepticism this way in his Devar Torah: Imagine yourself sitting alone on your couch watching TV and eating your favorite snack food.

    …to You [God] forever, I bind myself through Righteousness, Justice, Loving-Kindness and Love, I bind myself through Truth; in this way I come to know God” (Hosea 2:21-22). Just as wearing a wedding ring symbolizes the marriage bond between husband and wife, and just as the wearing of a police uniform symbolizes one’s allegiance to law and order, so wearing tefillin during morning services on weekdays (excluding Shabbat and major Festivals) indica…

And it is not just a few people – Not just Korach and his allies – But kol ha-eydah that now rallies Against Moses and Aaron. So one explanation of the much higher death toll The second time around Is kol ha-eydah’s ongoing failure To see that G-d is in their midst. If opening the m…

    …and they were counted out for the king, that he might become the king’s son-in-law. Saul then gave him his daughter Michal in marriage” (I Samuel 18:27, NJPS). Although the verse names only the foreskin, one might suppose that in the context of collecting their war trophies, David and his officers were not careful to take only the part specified. The Talmudic discussion suggests that the foreskins were of symbolic, but not monetary, value (B Sanh….

    …ewish law develops. That rules out intransigence on the one hand and a free-for-all on the other. When Jewish law developed in such a way as to affirm the practice of women being called to the Torah, some mistakenly concluded that Conservative Jews abandoned the law, or that Conservative Rabbis can change the law willy-nilly to suit passing fashions. By understanding the traditional process of the development of the law, we see that exactly the op…

One lesson hearkens back to the Yom Kippur injunction to become at-one with other people before seeking to become at-one with God. Our central prayer, the Shema, proclaims that God is One. That means not only that God is singular but also that God is all. If we c…

America shook, and a sleeping giant was awakened. “Hinei lo yanum velo yishan Shomer Yisrael — Behold, the Guardian of Israel neither sleeps nor slumbers,” wrote the Psalmist (Psalm 121). As much as we saw evil, we have also seen great goodness, something that reaffirms our…
