Jewish Link Dropping...Enjoy
Sunday was filled with me relaxing and fiddling with blogging. Of my pursuits I began the switch from Blogger to Wordpress. I'm not officially moved yet but a preview can be found here. Additionally I have been exploring a number of blogs that are new to me and I thought I'd do a LINK DROP and share them with you. ENJOY.
I fit into the "asked too many questions" category of non-believers. I love TRUTH and really wanted the whole religion thing to work out. Too bad it's just based on the pastiche of a couple thousand Rabbis over a couple thousand years.
This blog consists of my collection of personal experiences and news stories reflecting the precarious nature of human intelligence. I will attempt to make posts at least once a week, giving detailed examples of human stupidity in public life here in Israel

A woman finding her path through Judaism.
This is not a new blog to me but I hadn't read it quite some time so I wanted to reintroduce not just myself but my readers to Toronto Pearl's blog.
My thoughts, assertions and observations on issues important to me as a Jew, a Zionist, a Revenant in Yesha and as an inquisitive human being.
I am a Conservative Jew with Modern Orthodox leanings, hence the subtitle of this blog. I admire these two trends of Judaism for their courage in attempting to tackle the issues of today. We often refer to the Torah as the “tree of life” and thus I believe that Hashem gave it to us to live with in our time. Yet as I feel committed to Halakhah (Jewish law) I also consider that these answers ought to be given within the framework of the Torah. I sometimes disagree or even feel angry with the answers but I enjoy the challenge and honesty.
The premise of this blog is that positive Judaism can inspire.
Such an assertion may seem obvious, but apparently it is not to a great number of Jewish institutions that continue to rely on negativity — guilt, fear and hatred — to inspire Jewish identity and commitment to their cause.
This blog hopes to turn the tide on this phenomenon … and it will do so by promoting a Judaism that is joyful, filled with meaning, ethically centered, hesed infused and passionate about Jewish unity.
