    My son started to not feel good last week.  He was stuffed up, had a sore throat, and was achy.  I figured he was catching a cold, or perhaps just run down as his schedule with school, homework, extracurricular activities, and an insane social life, was taking a toll.  I kept him...

    I absolutely love being Jewish, I love everything about it, the food, the culture, the faith itself.  However, the terrible thing about being Jewish is that constant feeling that there is something wrong with you.  Seriously, worry is our “thing”!  That’s just what we do, what has...

    You know that harmless-looking body part inside your mouth? The tongue? It sure looks nice enough, but it gets a lot of Israelites into trouble in this week's parsha. Do you remember getting a present and then complaining it wasn't enough? Not the right video game; not the kind of...

  • What’s the Beef?

    A number of years ago, during the O.J. Simpson trial, I had a conversation with a non-Jewish merchant who told me that right after Simpson was arrested, he met a good friend of Simpson's at church. At the conclusion of the service, the merchant happened to stand right behind this man...

    The Israelites complain that they are tired of manna. "That's all we ever get, day in, day out!" God rains so much quail on them that they get sick. Meanwhile, Miriam and Aaron slander Moses' wife, Tzippora, behind her back. When God confronts them, they say: "How come you only talk...
