Our Children, Ourselves

Wednesday, April 9 2014

The youngest child at the table clears his throat and begins, “Mah Nishtana Halayla Hazeh Mikol Haleilot.”   It’s been repeated in homes across the country, in homes across the sea and in homes across time.

Chametz Vs. Matzah

Wednesday, April 2 2014

Matzah.  Thin, flat bread: either identical, square-shaped crackers if they are machine-made, or round, varying personalities if they are baked in the original fashion.  

Bread.  Soft, light, fluffy sponge-like substance that almost melts when you put it in your mouth.  ...

 
 

Reality

Something real.  I can touch it, see it, feel it. It exists.  
Unless you start getting into quantum physics kind of stuff.  
Which I don't need to: I have enough real things around me.  
Especially toys: big toys because I'm a big kid.  
And lots of ...

 
 

Two Rabbis, One Shul

Sound like double trouble?  Over-employment?  The latest synagogue sitcom?  Probably; but Jewish history is never probable.  

We started that way.  Moses could not, would not, lead alone; Aaron had to be there.  Moses' older brother never was quite his ...

 
 

Sweet Dreams, Wake Up to Something Sweeter

Thursday, March 13 2014
0 Comments  |  Add Comment

Sleep is not a delicate or romantic.  We slobber. We belch. We mess up freshly-pressed linen.  We mutter senseless, groggy drivel. And all those contour pillows, satin duvets, imported headboards and lacey skirting -- try as they might -- can't hide the fact that we, thinking, sensitive, ...

 
 

Love in All the Gross Places

 “This is a book about love” Peggy Noonan begins her book on 9/11.  It’s a captivating read: raw, unedited.  Written at the time and in the aftermath of when jets crushed towers into rubble and white smoke smothered Manhattan, and death choked the streets for ...

 
 

Success is the most coveted of blessings

Just after the Arabs attacked the Jews in what became known as the Yom Kippur War, the Israel Defense Forces held an emergency appeal in Nashville.  My father was speaking, and probably because he couldn't get a babysitter, he brought me along.  

He ended off with the story of ...

 
 

Mrs. Sandviches

My grandmother came to America -- from Russia with a four-year stopover in Israel -- around 1930.  She, with her husband and two infant boys, settled in a Jewish neighborhood in New Jersey.  The older boys in the neighborhood welcomed them by snatching their yarmulkes off their heads.

Kenahora Pu-Pu-Pu!

Why did Bubby always say that?  And does it really have to do with the evil eye?  Is this evil eye a cousin of walking under ladders with black cats on the Friday the thirteenth? The answers, in order, are:  Because she loved you.  Yes, but with an explanation.  No.

No Jew is Complete Unless all Jews are Complete

This parsha is unique.  Since recording Moshe's birth until the last parsha of the Torah, every sedra mentions Moshe by name.  Except this week.  Except Tetzaveh.

We read (in next week's parsha) the unfortunate story of Jews abandoning their Redeemer for a calf of gold.  G-d ...
