Five-hundred fourteen years ago this week, Ferdinand and Isabel ensured their country's homogenous character by disengaging the Jews of Spain -- in an emotionally draining, historic move facing stiff resistance and at considerable political and economic cost. 

That same week, Cristobel ...

 
 

Cookbooks

If the way to a man's heart is through his stomach, then the spyglass of a nation's soul is their cookbooks.

Jewish cookbooks have changed.  Cholent is no longer "a slow-cooking stew of potatoes, beans and meat".  Cholent has "deep emotional significance, a Sabbath ...

 
 

He who plants in tears, with joy he shall harvest

I was at the Holocaust Museum in Washington. It tells the horror and it tells it well.  I've seen Schindler's List; in a sense, it portrays the horror more effectively than any documentary has.  Both are missing a crucial element - the magnitude of Jewish response. 

For this I ...

"Money," a holocaust survivor declared at one lunch-n-learn, "is only appreciated when you lose it."  

Parting, then, is a sorrow.  And whatever sweetness might be present is only an accentuated memory, now made tender because it is lost. 

So goodbyes ...

 
 

A Nation Which Dwells Alone

Are you a statistics person? Do you remember the numbers you read; can you retain and when necessary retrieve them? Or are you more the graphics type that relates to visuals of pies and colored blocks and zigzaggy lines to make a point? I like anecdotes, little stories that (as someone once put ...

Have you ever heard of Reb Mendel? He smuggled Jews out of the Soviet Unionat the end of World War Two. The Communists gave him fifteen years in the Siberian gulags. 

Ever heard of Mume Sorah? She did the same, but they never bothered sending her away. For decades her family never ...

Walking down Thirty-Fourth Street you see the camera-clad map-wielding tourists heading towards the entranceway of the Empire State Building. They stop and look up, they lean back, lean all the way back until just before they loose balance, and they start clicking pictures – of a wide, wide ...

"Never look a gift horse in the mouth"
Good idea generally, gift horses can be liabilities - expensive ones.
But if G-d is giving gifts, trust Him.
He is not a horse thief

If you don't trust G-d, then you trust no one: who can you trust?
And ultimately, you don't trust trust.
How ...

Have you ever met someone great: not just great but truly great?  A giant? Have you felt the awe of their presence that is only enhanced when they extend themselves to you, when they draw you in?  If you haven’t yet, you have something to look forward to.

Some thirty-five ...

This week's Parsha tells of twelve sets of gifts brought as offerings by each of the twelve shevatim (tribes). Although the Torah does not waste words, and although each shevet seemingly brought the same gift, the Torah repeats word for word the exact order of their donation - ...
