The translation and commentary then in use in most Reform congregations, she says, didn't always do the trick. "Often when I would translate from the Hebrew, I would indicate that we weren't using the text translation that was in the other commentary^' says Frishman of the Barnert Temple in Franklin Lakes, N.J. That book, she says, "had a sense of being distant." But with the recent release of the "Revised Edition of The Torah: A Modern Commentary"— which now is being used in many Reform-movement pews — Frishman doesn't have that problem. The book is published by URJ Press. "The book is ...

Gross !'He who wishes to become a chasid should fulfill the words of Avot." This Talmudic quotation heads the introduction to a new book whose name and subject matter are the same —"Pirkei Avot: Ethics of the Fathers." A slim volume packing moun- tains of Jewish wisdom in not much more than 100 pages, this new treat- ment of ancient learning comes to us from Merkos LTnyonei Chinuch, an Orthodox publishing house in Brooklyn. But both content and presentation lend themselves to seekers in every branch of Judaism — to anyone hoping to become a true chasid. The word has its roots in chesid, kindness, and the chasid is characterized here, as in the Talmud, as a humble, altruistic person who goes beyond the letter of the law in observance of Torah. Rabbi Yosef Marcus compiled hi...

A host of world leaders took part in solemn, high-profile ceremonies such as one at Auschwitz in lanuary that marked the 60th anniversary of the liberation of the notorious death camp in 1945. Jews in Europe, meanwhile, grap- pled with sometimes-turbulent internal conflicts and struggled to move out of the shadow of the Shoah and find effective means of asserting their identity and articu- lating a coherent, collective and positive voice. They sought a strategy to deal with aging and assimilating popula- tions and respond to anti-Semiti...

But, he added, "I think that the Americans have tried to overstep the European Jewish organizations. The bridge between Europe and Israel is European Jewry, not Amer- ican Jewry." On a more grass-roots level, the year was marked by initiatives aimed at broadening effective coop- eration in areas such as Jewish education, volunteerism and cul- ture, as well as by episodes of sometimes ugly conflict and power struggles that split some Jewish communities. Some 150,000 people attended simultaneous events in more than two dozen countries on the annual European Day of Jewish Culture in September, and the London-based European Association for Jewish Culture awarded grants to a roster of artists and performers whose work reflec...

Is it meant to be musical? — Sandy L. Dear Sandy, The literal meaning of the word "shofar" comes from the word "Shaper" in Hebrew, which means "to improve." Its blast is meant to be a wake-up call for us to improve our actions and resolve on Rosh Hashanah to better our- selves for the rest of the year. Some have said that is why we wish people a "Shana Tovah" or a Good Year, rather than a "Shana Sam- eycha" or a Joyous Year, like our neighbors greet each other on their New Year with a Happy New Year. Although, of course, we hope everyone's New Year will be joyous, the bigger blessing we greet each other with is that the year should be "good," a year to make ourselves better, truly good people and Jews. By Rabbi Yerachmiel D. Fried Many have noticed that we are receiving another wake-up call t...

Still not a believer? lust try leaving (food here) off your menu. This little test is especially true when it comes to desserts. Ranking right up there with those desserts prepared at Pesach, when it comes to tradition, Rosh Hashanah desserts are often specific.

Apples have become the fruit most associated with the harvest and of the lewish New Year, especially in Eastern Europe and in this country where they are plentiful.

Berger NEW YORK (JTA) — Perhaps it was Sen. Charles Schumer (D-N.Y.) who best summarized the Amer- ican Jewish community's position on Harriet Miers. "We know even less about this nominee than we did about John Roberts," Schumer said Monday after President Bush nominated Miers, his White House counsel, to succeed Justice Sandra Day O'Connor on the U.S. Supreme Court. When Roberts was nominated to the high court in July — he later was promoted to chief justice after the death of William Rehnquist — most American Jewish groups said they would have to wait until his confirmation hearing before casting Washington office, staffers were purchasing domain names for people to solicit potential questions for Miers to be asked at confirma- tion hearings be...

But an administration beset with domestic political woes and the worsening situation in Iraq is unlikely to give Abbas what he wants most: a much more active U.S. role in pressing for- ward with peace efforts in the wake of Israel's recent withdrawal from Gaza. "What I see is words, not action, in Wash- ington," said Amb. Edward Walker, a former U.S. ambassador who now heads the Middle East Institute in Wash- ington. "They have the right instincts, but I don't see any real effort being made." Helping Abbas "would require an enormous amount of effort on the administration's part, in terms of getting resources to the Pales- tinians and getting Israel...

Even though Article VI, Clause 3, of the Constitution of the United States reads that: "No religious Test shall ever be required as a qualifi- cation to any office or public trust under the United States," that hasn't stopped a lot of us from thinking a great deal about the faith of both John Roberts, recently sworn in as Chief Justice of the US.

From the beginning Raquel had to have two to four shots a day to provid e her body the insulin neces- sary to break down the carbs eaten throughout the day Eventually Raquel moved on to an insulin pump, which is connected to her via a catheter-like tube that must be changed every two to three days and delivers the insulin to her on a con- tinuous basis. "A lot of people think Raquel got diabetes from eating too much junk food," said her mom. "That is not true. Unlike the more common Type 2 Diabetes, which can sometimes be controlled through diet, Juvenile Diabetes (Type 1) is caused by the inability of the pancreas to produ ce insulin.

Hamas falsely accused Israel for the incident, and launched dozens of rockets on Sderot and neighboring Israeli commu- nities just over the Gaza border. Israel retaliated by renewing its tar- geted killings of leading terrorists, shelling targets in Gaza and undertaking a massive arrest campaign of Hamas activists in the West Bank. Hamas' lead- ership realized too late that Palestinian public opinion had little sympathy for Hamas' provocations. P.A. President Mahmoud Abbas came out strongly against Hamas' attempt to put the blame on Israel. Gaza residents, who had hoped the Israeli pullout finally would bring peace and quiet, were furious at Hamas for giving Israel a pre- text for closing down the territories, arresting militants and continuing the sta...
