Look inside through the heart of a Jew
Open up its many doors
And the soul that you’ll see there inside
Is a reflection of yours
For each soul is a part of one whole
That joins us to each other
We are all part of one another
And we have always been one

We began as a nation to live
And believe with one heart
You and i we were all gathered there
As one we said we’ll do and hear
We were born to belong together
And forever be one

Forever one we will go far
It’s not I am but who we are
We need just to believe it
We need to try and feel it
And never are we alone
We have each other as our own
Nothing can divide us
For we are forever one

These are times when we might drift apart
And go our own separate ways
But the spark from above that we share
Is alive and ablaze
Soon Moshiach will gather each spark
And shine away the darkness
He will gather us all together
And we shall ever be one

During the evening a plaque was presented to parents of a HASC child for being parents of the year. The father of the child went on to give a moving speech with a dvar torah from the Mashgiach. Later in the program we learned that an anonymous donor was so moved by the fathers words to the audience, that he pledged to build a new bunkhouse the cost of which is $300,000!!.

One of the highlights of the night was an unrehearsed song that was special requested during the show, the hit song “Ivdu.” Joining the legendary DYB for the song were members for the “Friedman family” Avraham Fried, 8th Day and Benny Friedman.

In honor of the 40th year of Camp HASC, here are 40 photos from the official HASC photographer extraordinaire Stan Weiss this year celebrating his 10th year of taking photo at HASC concerts.

The Whole Jewish History in One Hour


Zum zweiten Mal widmen sich die Jüdischen Kulturtage Berlin einem Aspekt, der immanenter Teil jüdischer Kultur ist: dem Aspekt des Lernens. Zu diesem Zweck wurde der Gelehrte, Schriftsteller, Übersetzer und Kabbalist David Solomon eingeladen, der für seinen innovativen, dynamischen und inspirierenden Lehrstil weltweit bekannt ist.

David Solomon weckt den Wissensdurst der Zuhörenden. Seine Art zu lehren erreicht jede und jeden — unabhängig davon, ob und wie viele Vorkenntnisse bestehen. „Die gesamte Jüdische Geschichte in einer Stunde” deckt den Zeitraum vom Ursprung des Jüdischen Volkes bis heute ab — und geht noch darüber hinaus. Wer in kürzester Zeit einen tiefen Einblick in die Geschichte des Jüdischen Volkes gewinnen möchte, ist hier richtig.

19/01/14 – Remember the Days of Old: Jewish Consciousness in Historical Context – w/R. Mike Feuer


Sunday, Jan 19, 2014

~ Course Description ~
What is history? This question will drive our class as we search for truth along the path that Am Yisrael has traced through time. If you want to revolutionize your context for learning Torah and understanding our national experience, to infuse history with the depths of Jewish thought, then join this weekly exploration of Jewish consciousness in its historical perspective. We will anchor ourselves in a timeline of people and events, laid out from Daniel to the Zionist era. Our primary task will be to analyze the relationship between world history and the Jewish experience. Our goal will be a holistic vision of Jewish history. In addition to a sound education in the scope of history, this class offers a unique framework for an integrated understanding of the path we have taken through time. Come find the insight the past offers, and taste it’s inspiration for the future.

Franziskus will Beziehungen zwischen Christen und Juden weiter verbessern, Riccardo Di Segni der Oberrabbiner von Rom, sagte …

16.03.2013 Das jüdische Viertel von Rom. Auch hier verfolgt man die ersten Arbeitstage von Papst Franziskus mit großer Aufmerksamkeit. Das neue Oberhaupt der katholischen Kirche machte bereits kurz nach seiner Wahl deutlich, dass er sich für die weitere Verbesserung der Beziehungen zwischen Christen und Juden einsetzen will.

“Jeder Mensch hat seinen Glauben, seine Religion. Aber man sollte immer auch mit den Menschen anderer Glaubensrichtung im Dialog sein”, so eine Passantin.

Riccardo Di Segni, der Oberrabbiner von Rom, sagte, der Papst könne ein wichtiger Faktor im Nahost-Friedensprozess sein: “Auch der Vatikan ist in dieser Gegend vertreten, somit involviert und kann deshalb keine neutrale Instanz sein. Wenn er sich für den Friedensprozess einsetzt, begrüßen wir das.”

Di Segni wird am Dienstag an der offiziellen Amtseinführung des neuen Papstes teilnehmen. Bereits als Erzbischof von Buenos Aires pflegte Franziskus ein vertrauensvolles Verhältnis zur dortigen jüdischen Gemeinde.

Seit mittlerweile 60 Jahren findet immer im März die Woche der Brüderlichkeit statt. Ausgerichtet wird sie vom Deutschen Koordinierungsrat der Gesellschaften für Christlich-Jüdische Zusammenarbeit. Ziel ist es Brücken zu bauen zwischen den zwei Weltreligionen. Gegenseitiges Kennenlernen, einander verstehen und das ganz nach dem Vorbild der amerikanischen Initiativen zur christlich-jüdischen Versöhnung. Im Rahmen der diesjährigen Woche der Brüderlichkeit ging es im Memminger Bonhoeffer-Haus gestern Abend um die Frage, ob Christen und Juden mit dem Alten Testament eigentlich ein und das gleiche Buch lesen.

Komen for the Cure, the world’s largest grassroots network of breast cancer survivors and activists.

The American Jewish Joint Distribution Committee (JDC) is the world’s leading Jewish humanitarian assistance organization. JDC works in more than 70 countries and in Israel to alleviate hunger and hardship, rescue Jews in danger, create lasting connections to Jewish life, and provide immediate relief and long-term development support for victims of natural and man-made disasters.

A Public Lecture by Yoram Bilu: “Moroccan Jews and the Shaping of Israel’s Sacred Geography”


Yoram Bilu was Visiting Professor in Israel Studies at the University of Chicago Divinity School in 2012. He served as a professor of psychology and sociology and anthropology at the Hebrew University of Jerusalem until his retirement last year. Focusing on Israeli society and Jewish traditional culture, his research interests include the anthropology of religion, culture and mental health, the sanctification of space in Israel, and Maghrebi Jewish culture. Bilu served as the chair of the department of psychology (1992-94) and the head of the Authority for Doctoral Students, both at the Hebrew University, and as the president of the Israeli Anthropological Association (1989-91). He has been a visiting professor at several American universities, including the University of California, San Diego, Brandeis University, and the Jewish Theological Seminary. His most recent book is “The Saints’ Impresarios: Dreamers, Healers, and Holy Men in Israel’s Urban Periphery.”

The Israel Studies visiting professorship is supported by the Israel Studies Project of the Jewish Federation of Metropolitan Chicago. The project, titled “Culture and Religion in the Twenty-First Century: New Perspectives from Israel,” brings visiting Israeli scholars for individual quarter-long visits over a four-year period.

Videopoem!Posted: 19 Jan 2014 04:00 AM PST

May I kvell? This is so neat.

Writer and filmmaker Othniel Smith has created a videopoem based on one of my poems — combining public domain footage, Peg Duthie‘s audio recording, and my words (“Ethics of the Mothers,” which appears in April Daily.) I put the poem in The Poetry Storehouse, but I hadn’t actually expected anyone to do anything with it. But Peg and Othniel did!

Thank you, Peg and Othniel!

Tu BiShvat and self-care: a mini-d’var-Torah for YitroPosted: 19 Jan 2014 03:00 AM PST

Here’s the very tiny d’var Torah I offered during Shabbat morning services at my shul yesterday. (I kept it brief because I wanted plenty of spacious time for our Tu BiShvat seder after services!) (cross-posted to my From the Rabbi blog.)

In today’s parsha, Yitro, Moses receives some of the best self-care advice in the Torah: you can’t do it all yourself. You will wear yourself out, and then you won’t be able to help those whom you serve.

We’ve all been where Moses was: overworked and stretched too thin.

Self-care matters. If we don’t nourish ourselves, then we can’t do the work we’re here to do in the world. Whether you think of that work as “caring for your family and community,” or “saving the planet,” or “serving God” — we all have work we’re meant to do in this life, and if we don’t take care of ourselves, we can’t do that work.

Today at CBI we’re celebrating Tu BiShvat, the day when — our tradition teaches — the sap rises in the trees for the year to come, nourishing the trees so that in the future they can bear fruit.

We too need to be nourished so that we can bear fruit as the year unfolds. As the trees need rain and snowmelt, we need the living waters of Torah to enliven our souls.

As the trees need fertile soil and good nutrients, so we need to feel ourselves to be firmly planted — and to get all of the physical, intellectual, emotional, and spiritual nutrients we need in order to grow and to flower.

What nourishment do you most need on this Shabbat?

What would feed you in all four worlds — your body, your heart, your mind, your soul?

What do you need to soak up in order to be able to bring forth the wonders, the ideas, the teachings, the kindnesses, the mitzvot which only you can do?

And how can you take care of yourself, as Yitro instructed Moshe, so that you will be able to open your heart and receive what you need?

In My Opinion

At the end of last month I attended an all day conference here in Jerusalem commemorating the one hundredth anniversary of Rabbi Isaac Herzog’s seminal Ph.D. thesis that he submitted to the University of London. The thesis was a scientific, historical and halachic review of the source of the ancient dye used to produce techelet colored wool for the priestly garments and for the tzitzit/fringes of four cornered garments worn regularly by Jews. The conference was attended by a large and diverse audience and the presentations were of high caliber and most interesting and informative. But this article is not so much about techelet, blue dye, indigo or royal purple coloring, as it is about…

Weekly Parsha

It is well known that there is a difference of opinion as to whether Yitro’s arrival in the camp of Israel in the desert occurred before or after the revelation and granting of the Torah at Mount Sinai. Even if we say that Yitro arrived before the momentous event of Mount Sinai and that the Torah is recording events in a chronological manner, it still is difficult for us to understand. Why is this most important event in Jewish history as outlined for us in the Torah, be preceded by a rather mundane description of Yitro’s arrival and reception in the camp of Israel? Would it not be more effective to highlight the revelation at Sinai immediately at the beginning of the parsha? And…

Judaism and the Majority Culture

Judaism and the Majority Culture
Jews have never been numerous in terms of population. Thus, the Jewish people have always lived apart as a distinct minority in the midst of a greater ‘majority culture.’ This series by Rabbi Berel Wein portrays Jewish answers to the difficulties posed by paganism, Christianity, Islam, the Enlightenment, and secularism and the tribulations created for Jews by those cultures. This series not only tells the story of the Jewish response to these difficulties, but also provides insights and fascinating information about these non-Jewish cultures.
The Legacy

This is not a book about what once was: It is a book about what should, and can, be – now and forever in Jewish life.
