    Chassidic Tales

    When the Bobover Found the Torn Page from Sanhedrin

    the story of the time during World War 2 when the Bobover Rebbe found himself in the office of a General, he miraculously saw a torn page from Massechta Sanhedrin and as he held it close to him he felt like he had all the riches in the world. Today, one of the most beautiful parts of a Jewish home is the walls lined with Sefarim, the question we have to ask ourselves is 'how much simcha does it give us?'

    Ein Aya

    Forego Humility to Let Our Children Know About Our Good Actions

    Ein Aya Shabbat 2, 281

    Parents, educators and rabbis often grapple with the question: "I don't want to sound like I'm bragging, but if I don't tell my children/students about my volunteering, learning, tzedaka and the good deeds that I do, how can I educate them of their importance?!" It's not enough to speak theoretically about ideals, but the best is to show by personal example, and my kids aren't always around to see! Similarly, certain topics are uncomfortable to speak about, but if we shy away from them, our children won't learn of their importance.

    Is Circumcision Mutilation

    Prince Charles and before him the sons of George V - Edward VIII (later the duke of Windsor), George VI, Henry, duke of Gloucester; George, duke of Kent; and Prince John, were all circumcised. In fact, circumcision was widely performed on British middle - and upper-class male infants from the 1890s through the 1940s. Things have changed a bit since then: In 2010, activists against infant circumcision began an initiative to ban all non-medically necessary circumcisions of minors calling it mutilation. Why do Jews circumcize their sons?

    Redemption - Geula

    The Tanach Was Written for Religious Zionists

    Unfortunately, the Tanach, the most popular, most translated and most printed book in history, is not studied enough in the yeshiva world. Perhaps one of the reasons, is that it is clearly addressing religious Zionists, something which may "threaten" certain notions in those yeshivas. This class helps clarify different outlooks within orthodoxy regarding modernism and Zionism, and what the original Torah-True Judaism is really about.
