From Rabbi Krauss

From Rabbi Krauss

In years past when there were no internet, no TV and no radio, news got around slowly. In the 19th century and early 20th, people would gather in homes and in synagogues to share and discuss the latest news, which may have been days or even weeks old. Today news reaches the public almost as it happens. Read More

HAZZAN NOTES

HAZZAN NOTES

Now that all of the Jewish holidays are complete and we all feel reJEWvenated, the secular community barrages everyone about the upcoming holiday season. As Americans we accept that all of this is part of our culture. As Jews it is a good idea to keep things in perspective.

First there is Halloween, a holiday that public schools endorse as if it were a totally secular holiday. We should remember that it has its roots in paganism, and even more importantly it is the current holy day for the Wiccan religion. We are admonished as Jews not to observe holidays that belong to other religions. Even so it is hard to totally avoid Halloween. My recommendation is to pass out candies to those people who come by as a kind community gesture. It is something that both Rabbi Krauss and I have done for years. Read More
