My father was raised in the Old Country, in a place called Nujoisy, in the town of Elizabeth. His parents had come there from Israel, where he was born. They had come to Israel from Russia shortly before his birth: they had left Russia after my grandfather's father was murdered in a pogrom. My ...

 
 

A Torah Of Ink & Parchment & A Torah Of Blood

At twelve, I left Nashville for Pittsburgh's yeshiva. I lived in my grandparents' home; my grandfather was also my teacher. 

He once called my class together at the foot of the stairway and started in his Yiddish-accent sing-song: "You know boys, when you are going down steps, you ...

 
 

No Hebrews Allowed

"No Hebrews Allowed."  It’s the first reference that comes to my mind when I hear us called Hebrews.  Okay, I know YMHA means the Jewish YMCA, and HIAS a Jewish Immigrant Aid Society, but still, Hebrew -- when talking about people, not our language – smacks of ...

 
 

Teddy Bear Or Eagle? America, What Are You?

This country was founded, settled, defined and furthered by people who left their homes for the unknown.  Whether or not they were religious (in the conventional sense) is (and will be) debated by those with agendas.  It is unarguable however, that the founders of this country were ...

 
 

Children's Math

How long since you had to look inside a math book?  Because here's a question that might have got by you: 
A down payment on a home costs $5,000.  
Housing one brain-damaged man for a year costs $20,000. 
How many families lose homes to mental retardation? 

This ...

 
 

Why Are you Going to Yom Kippur Eve Services?

Kol Nidre
Kol Nidre. Certainly the most attended Jewish prayer of the year. Certainly the most awesome. But why? 

The words are pretty mundane, a basic annulment for 
misunderstood, haphazardly applied, ill-advised vows 
a person may have taken upon themselves. 

There ...

Leather seats, user-friendly ticketing, signature blue chips and 16 channel satellite tv makes Jetblue. Before takeoff, their tv screens flash a "Thank you for flying with us. Without you, we'd just be flying a bunch of tvs around the sky." 

From day one to day six the One in the ...

 
 

The Other Rock

" . . . Come to the land which I have given you. . .a land flowing with milk and honey." The Parsha. 

Friends of mine who are older than me want to go to Israel. But not now; maybe some other time. It's too dangerous with all that craziness going on there. Is going to Israel ...

"We're getting divorced.  But we're doing it amicably, with mutual respect." 
When ex-spouses (or ex-es) describing their divorce sound like "we're withdrawing our offer on the house we looked at Thursday", you can get the idea that they never invested enough to be ...

 
 

WITCHES, BLACK CATS, BULLS AND PLANES

Friday, August 29 2014

Black cats don't bother me any more than white or brown ones do. The thirteenth floor is fine as long as the elevator is working. Horoscopes remain unread -regardless of whether we Tauruses need to think bull market or bear. 

So I read this parsha's admonitions with a detachment of sorts: ...
