In my years ofTorah study classes I never came across this mitzvah, and am wondering if you could please provide the source. always, I much appreciate your comments. —Sincerely yours, Horace W. Dear Horace, There are a number of clas- sical works which enumerate the 613 mitzvos of the Torah, most notably the Rambam (Maimonides), Sefer Hachinuch (Book of Education, by R' Avrohom Halevi) and others all written in the 12-1300s,and more recent ones such as The Concise Book of the Mitzvos (by R' Yisroel Meir Hakohen, the renowned Chofetz Chaim, of pre-war Europe), and none of them count tikkun olam as one of the mitzvos. In fact, the words tikkun olam don't even appear in the ...

For the most part, it's not all about actual historical foods, although some specific ingredients are associated with spe- cific holidays. After all, brisket of beef probably didn't make the A-list of Rosh Hashanah entrees. Turkey, a native of the Americas, certainly wasn't on the menu. Nei- ther were kugel and kishka. Other foods were definitely on the carte du jour back when. For example, honey has always been associated with Rosh Hashanah. It's symbolic of our hopes for a "zeesen yar" or sweet year. Of course, what has been eaten with honey has varied. Today we dip apples and challah into honey and cook many foods — from poultry to cakes — with honey as a sweetener. We eat emblematic foods to add to our hopes for good things in the coming year. Again, recipes that include nuts or many see...

"From the plane, you see almost every rooftop covered in blue tarp" indi- cating extensive damage, he says. Kieffer and his wife, Melinda, of B'nai Aviv, a Conservative congrega- tion in Weston, Fla., and Harry Silverman, the southeastern regional director for the umbrella group United Synagogue for Conservative Judaism, were on a one-day spiri- tual-relief mission Sept. 21 to Biloxi's beleaguered Congregation Beth Israel, the only synagogue on the Mississippi Gulf Coast. All the Jewish movements have reached out generou sly to hurricane victims, sending money, food and clothing to Jews and non-Jews alike. But this was a rare mission focused on spiritual support.

As the largest evacuation in modern American history unfolded in anticipation of Hurricane Rita, North Texas families, synagogues and agencies joined in the second relief effort in a month, giving shelter, food and other support to Jews and non-Jews. Even before Interstate 45 grew into a 240-mile parking lot from Houston to Dallas, the community began offering help to the displaced travelers. And by early this week — with Rita changing course and sparing the Galveston-Houston cor- ridor its most damaging wind and rain — most of the evacuees were headed south again. When the advancing ...

The Bush administration is dra- matically expanding funding for faith-based groups as part of its hur- ricane relief efforts, and some Jewish groups are warning that it could blow a big hole in the church-state wall. "It's like the levees; once the church-state wall is breached, it's very hard to rebuild," said Mark Pelavin, associate director of the Religious Action Center of Reform Judaism, which is criti- cizing the stepped-up faith based push as an effort to push an ideological agenda, not disaster recovery But other Jewish groups are wary of appearing like obstacles to the massive recovery effort. "Everybody understands that helping people right now is a pri- ority; nobody wants to be seen as putting up roadblocks," said an offi- cial with one major Jewish group. "The problem is, there are some in the administration who clearly...

(JTA) — On the Days of Awe we stand humbled before God. Our belongings and our accomplishments do not ultimately protect us. We are mortal, finite and dependent. In our daily life, we often avoid facing this reality. We seek security through our work, our acquisitions, our power. The Days of Awe call us to strip ourselves of externals and to confront our humanness. We pray, "Shema Koleinu," or "Hear our prayer," for in our vulnerability we long for connection to the merciful one, to be held in the divine embrace. We exhort God, "Do not forsake us in our old age. When our powers fade, do not abandon us.'? The poignancy of this plea is over- whelming, for in it, we give voice to our darkest fear: that we will be aban- doned in our moment of greatest weakness. We dread the prospect of ...

But true Jewish time means that our days and holidays adhere to a primarily lunar calendar, corre- sponding to the waxing and waning of the moon as it circles the earth. !'I have to wait a month longer this year to eat apples and honey," com- plains Jeremy, my 16-year-old son. !'No, the first of Tishri is always the first of Tishri," I say, referring to the date on the Jewish calendar that marks our New Year. "But it's not till Oct. 4," he answers. Jewish time means that our days begin at sunset and our months begin when the crescent of the new moon is just visible. (It's no mistake that the Hebrew word for month, "chodesh," is related to the word for new, "c...

Demographic change also creates congregations in new parts of the country, as young Jews move west and north, and their parents retire south. And some congregations con- sciously choose to forego clergy; they just want to run their own show. "By and large, the congregations that don't have rabbis do it because they don't have a choice," says Rabbi Victor Appell, a small-congregation specialist for the Union for Reform Judaism. "Because of their size or location, it's a challenge to find a rabbi to serve them. But that puts them in the position of becoming self-reliant. If you asked many of them now whether they'd want a rabbi, I'm not sure they'd say yes." According to Jewish law, congrega- tions don't...

When he and Bea go to California every winter, the shul shuts down. The congregation's last bat mitzvah was 15 years ago. The con- gregation often thinks about closing down, but Bea Premack says B'nai Isaac serves an important educational role in the small Midwestern city. "We've always had the synagogue open for Christian groups, so they can come and learn about Judaism," she says. A local Catholic college brings its students on regular visits, another university brings in its comparative religion classes and several churches visit with their confirmation students. The Premacks, who have a kosher home, also run a class on introduc- tory Judaism for a few local women and some friends whose children have married Jews. Another kind of demog...
