  • On Shavuot, reconsidering the origins of the Torah

    May 28, 2014 | 10:27 am

    Is the Torah true?

  • Thank You Rabbi Kurtz

    By Nolan Lebovitz

    May 16, 2013 | 9:40 pm

    I just spent the last two days of Shavuot studying.  While Shavuot is supposed to commemorate the giving of the Torah at Mount Sinai, I find it more meaningful to be grateful for the enduring cycle of regiving or transmittance of Torah (which of course cannot be explained without...

    This week’s double Torah portion, Behar-Bechukotai, begins: “And the Lord spoke to Moshe at Mount Sinai” (Leviticus 25:1). At the end of our reading, we conclude the Torah’s third book with: “These are the mitzvot that the Lord commanded Moshe for the children of Israel at Mount...

  • ‘Six Million Coins’ pays it forward

    April 10, 2013 | 1:12 pm

    Ori Rabinovitch, a fourth-grader at Harkham Hillel Hebrew Academy, remembers how he recently met an 85-year-old Holocaust survivor who could barely hear him — and who could not afford to buy a hearing device. 

    It bothered the 10-year-old that this man could not, in effect, afford...
