    Yossi Mizrachi stood in front of a class of second-graders at Harkham Hillel Hebrew Academy with a dark, ridged, 4-foot-long buffalo horn in his hand.

    "Can we use this for a shofar?" he asked the class, who started cooing in awe at the enormous horn.

    "The buffalo is a kosher...

  • Why Keep Kosher?

    By Rabbi Debra Orenstein

    March 27, 2003 | 7:00 pm

    The end of this week's Torah portion supplies the major biblical reasons for kashrut: "For I am God....

  • Kids Page

    March 20, 2003 | 7:00 pm

    Fire! That's what you find in this week's parsha. The Israelites are taught about the sacrifices. Ever since the Temple was destroyed, Jews stopped sacrificing animals to God. Instead, they pray. Praying is another way of connecting with God. And instead of using fire to send...

  • Holocaust Exploited

    November 7, 2002 | 7:00 pm

    If your kids are out of the house and you're experiencing empty-nest syndrome, how about considering adoption? Don't worry though, this adoptee will be pretty low-maintenance -- all he needs is a caring family, food, water and, of course, plenty of fly-repellent gel.

    The adoptees are...

  • Parshat KiTetze

    By Abby Gilad

    August 15, 2002 | 8:00 pm

    This week's parsha is concerned with mitzvot -- mitzvot in time of war, mitzvot concerning marriage, mitzvot concerning lost property, mitzvot concerning animals. So, you ask, what's a mitzvah? Well, it's a good deed! Actually, that is only half the answer. The absolute correct...

    By Richard Allen Greene

    March 22, 2001 | 6:59 pm

    As far as foot-and-mouth disease is concerned, it's good to be Jewish.

    Since the outbreak of the disease last month, Jews who keep kosher have faced fewer serious meat shortages than the rest of the British community.

    The economics of kosher slaughter have worked in Jews' favor.

  • Celebration of Animals at B’nai Tikvah Congregation in Westchester

    July 30, 1998 | 8:00 pm

    When the rabbi's wife is a vet, it should come as little surprise when the four-legged critters are accorded special attention at the rabbi's synagogue. So, on the heels of the High Holidays, a Celebration of the Animals at B'nai Tikvah Congregation in Westchester will take place...
