Football and Faith - Rabbi Barry Gelman

Earlier this week I posted an article related to a Modern Orthodox woman who was a contestant on ANTM. The article raised the question as to whether or not Modern Orthodoxy has made a mistake in thinking that we can have it all.

Here is a link to an article by Ken Herman of the Austin American Statesman.  It is a question with a uniquely Texan take. It is a refreshing approach to faith and popular culture. I think the writer makes great points and highlights the question of sacrifice and faith.
