Governors Christie, Bush and Kasich band together to stay in the race by drawing blood from the frontrunners.10:18 07.02.16 | 0 comments
The idea that the "Gvir", however enlightened, or even the "Boor v'Am ha-Aretz" who thinks he or she knows something about Judaism can dictate what our Traditions must be is off-sides some. You can disagree with Halacha, but you cannot say they are invalid. There are many Jews for whom those rules and that value system is still relevant, and, the honestly Secular Jews, of whom there are a precious few, including the Baron, who can discuss those issues intelligently. You cannot have a dialogue with someone whose sole interest is to eat, drink, and be merry like the people in "the rest of the world". We are Jews! We have a heritage that begins with our Forefather Abraham and continues with us up to this time. Ivri does not only mean the opposite of Yehudi, but someone whose culture and way of life is based on what has become to be known as Halacha. When, as our Sages tell us, the Messiah comes, those of us to disagree with Halacha and those of us who keep to Halacha have to learn those priniciples and each of us, act on those values without entering into a race to decide "Who's on First".
