Round Up

Posted on: September 21, 2012

This time between Rosh Hashanah and Yom Kippur is always interest. I find that people are biting their tongues a bit, more careful about the words they are putting into the world. The web has been full of really amazing pieces of information and I’ve decided to round them up today.

Down the Rabbit Hole is by Julie Sugar, one of my favorite writers. She wrote the piece for Lilith the Jewish Feminist magazine about her struggles with Shabbat observance.

Talmud, A Day at a Time written by Neil Rubin for the Times of Israel is an interesting piece because it highlights my boss, Nigel Savage, the executive Director of Hazon. This isn’t a work pitch by any means, it’s simply a challenge that I’ve decided to take up-two months later. The first Tractate of Talmud is on it’s way from Amazon and I’ve joined the Facebook group Unorthodox Daf Yomi to try to catch up. We’ll see how I do in seven years.

We Don’t All Look AlikeĀ  and We Can Do Better both written by Chava is are honest, frank and necessary reads for this time. Even more than I, Chava has a real insight into the Jewish world and her words are important if we’re going to change our community.

Lastly, I was interviewed by my friend and amazing writer Chanel Dubofsky for JewSchool last week.

Shabbat Shalom!
