  • Competing Voices

    By Rabbi Elazar Muskin

    September 5, 2002 | 8:00 pm

    Last Rosh Hashana began with the most terrible noise. Terror, trauma, tragedy and evil triumphant filled the air. In addition, Israel and Jews worldwide were subjected to the vilest outburst of anti-Semitism since the 1940s.

    September 5, 2002 | 8:00 pm

    Now a year has passed. We have bombed. We have infiltrated. We have analyzed and rallied and written.

    And through it all we have avoided one sad truth: the terrorists have already won. They haven't won the war, but they have won a crucial battle.

    My first memory of terror goes back...

    September 5, 2002 | 8:00 pm

    I love to ask students of all ages a spiritual and revealing question: "When have you felt the presence of God in your lives?" I love to ask this question because the answers students give often inspire. Let me share some typical answers.

    September 5, 2002 | 8:00 pm

    Although I was there, I can't tell you much about the events of Sept. 11, 2001, that you don't already know. After all, you had CNN; I only had my two eyes

    and the prescription lenses I thankfully remembered to grab as I fled the apartment. Yes, I watched from a few blocks away as...

  • The Value of a Day

    By Eric Copage

    September 5, 2002 | 8:00 pm

    The High Holidays are a time Jews reserve for themselves. They don't seek the approval or participation of gentiles. What if African Americans stopped trying to get white people to celebrate with us and recognized that we have been essential in making this nation?

    By Pearl Salkin

    September 5, 2002 | 8:00 pm

    Am I the only one who goes to Rosh Hashana and Yom Kippur services to listen and participate?

    Probably not. But why do I feel that way sometimes?

    Next week is Rosh Hashana, the Birthday of the World. Soon you get to eat apples and honey. You get to dip the round challah in the honey too -- my personal favorite. Some of you will spend the day at synagogue in your holiday best. Some of you may decide to celebrate in nature --...
