We buried her 13 months ago -- this flower, this light, this precious partner of his for 60 years. Everything was done in our ancient way: the funeral with its torn, black ribbons and clods... read full article
  • Stand Up To Be Counted

    By Rabbi Steven Carr Reuben

    May 13, 1999 | 8:00 pm

    A young woman called, asking if I would be willing to visit with her 95-year-old grandmother. She seemed to be slipping away from life more and more each day, and had been asking to speak with a rabbi. I didn't know the woman or her family, but I figured anyone who lives to be 95...

  • Personal Power

    By Rabbi Yosef Kanefsky

    May 6, 1999 | 8:00 pm

    Let's face it. We love the feeling of power. We love it at work, we love it at shul, we even love it at home. The capacity to exert power over the people and things around us not only enhances our general feelings of personal security, but also satisfies our primal, subconscious urge...

    This past summer, while leading a Jewish Heritage tour through Central and Eastern Europe, we spent Shabbat in the beautiful city of Prague. On Shabbat morning, we prayed at the famous 13th-century Altenu Shul. The Altenu Shul is the oldest existing synagogue still functioning in...

  • When You Haven’t Got a Prayer

    By Rabbi Ed Feinstein

    March 18, 1999 | 7:00 pm

    They sat like any other family in the noisy restaurant, trading conversation, stories, tales of the day past. But when the waiter brought their meal, something remarkable happened: The conversation stopped, hands were extended and grasped to form a circle around the table, eyes...

  • The Only Choice We Have

    By Rabbi Steven Z. Leder

    March 11, 1999 | 7:00 pm
