Three Great Reads from the Jewish Journal
Check out these fantastic new offerings from Jewish Journal writers on the topics that matters most to our readers:
Shabbat is a gift. It’s an invitation to take time at the end of the week to unwind and connect with your family, your community, your religion. No matter what your Jewish background, sharing a Friday night Shabbat meal is like hitting the reset button.
OneTable is on a mission to help young adults (ages 21-39) establish and maintain a Shabbat practice by making Friday night dinners accessible, sustainable and valuable.
These are strange times. Mobs of Jewish rioters commit a pogrom in Huwara ahead of Shabbat Zakhor while the Temple Institute posts pictures on Instagram of its genetically modified red heifers ahead of Shabbat Parah. We are living in a Jewish science fiction novel, where the words of our sacred texts have escaped their bindings and now run rampant in the streets.
This time, Netanyahu, who is traditionally considered a political wizard, grossly miscalculated. By launching this set of crazy moves against our democracy, he has unleashed an unprecedented volcano of popular rage. For the last 10 weeks, hundreds of thousands of Israelis have been taking to the streets, Israeli flags in their hands, to protest against this onslaught on their liberty. They will never let this happen.
