Parsha HaShevua; Parsha Bo 5766

Parsha Bo: Doing Mitzvot and Hashem’s Will, Even When Under Duress.
By Moshe Burt

Parsha Bo is the one which, for me, annually relates to that crazy tune which played back “in the Old Country” a couple of decades ago, “Does Your Korbon Pesach Lose It’s Flavor Tied to the Bedpost Overnight?” (Actually, the real title to the song was “Does Your Chewing Gum Lose It’s Flavor on the Bedpost Overnight?”)

Over the years, I’ve come to associate this nutty parody of mine with the very heart of our Parsha. That is the Mitzvot of taking the Korbon Pesach, applying the da’am on Jewish doorposts, the going up from Mitzrayim (Egypt)to “…a land flowing with milk and honey …” and the first mitzvah commanded of the National entity (B’nai Yisrael), the Kiddush HaChodesh — the sanctification of the New Moon and the relevance today of these mitzvot which relate to emunah (belief in) and yirat (fear of)Hashem. And each year, just like countless other stories of our heritage and Halachot, the perspective each year is unique just as the events of each year are unique unto themselves, yet part of Hashem’s “vast eternal plan.” read more

Appeal for Help for Moshe and Rachel Saperstein …

Received this email today with an appeal for help for Moshe and Rachel Saperstein, former residents of Neve Dekalim, Gush Katif.

Date: Wed, 01 Feb 2006 11:09:43 +0200
Subject: Please act on this for a Gush Katif couple

Many of you know the Sapersteins. Rachel has served as a spokesperson for fellow former-Neve Dekalim residents since the expulsion and has been collecting money to help them. (Before the expulsion she was a spokesperson inside Gush Katif.) Moshe is disabled because of a terrorist attack. They are very special people and deserve a lot better than they’re getting. It takes just a short time to send an e-mail or fax. And please send this to everyone you know, and put it on your lists. Of course, draft your own message as fits you and is appropriate. read more

Decision Time for American Jews …

Our World: The Trial of American Jewry


In the vast, overwhelming majority of cases, Caroline Glick’s writings and editorials represent editorial and commentary journalism at it’s professional finest, an extreme rarity in Israel.

However, this editorial is a huge disappointment. The feel of the article is as if American Jews are beating themselves up with guilt. After all, in the US, “they are free to be Jewish” and for that, they must express gratitude. Perish the thought that American Jews should begin to read the clear writing on the wall, look into their Jewish history and heritage and come to the conclusion that “… they are guests in their own (?) country.” read more
