Palestinian Arab Muslim Converts To Judaism

23.02.2014

Every morning for the last two years, Yaniv comes to this tiny yeshiva in a Jewish neighborhood in Jerusalem. Yaniv, a Palestinian, was born Muslim and converted seven years ago. He loves to study Judaism, he says, and is continuously excited by it. Yaniv is proud to be Jewish. Yaniv’s rabbi says that he is proud of his student who is passionate and determined in his love of Judaism.

Just two years ago he was called Busman, and lived in an Arab village near Nablus. Osman was released from an Israeli prison after 11 years, on charges of manslaughter. He discovered Judaism while in prison, and has since converted. This is Bussman, or Yaniv, moments after being released from jail, on the Palestinian side of the green line. Crying bitterly, Yaniv said that he had nowhere to go, now that he was a Jew. He could not enter Israel because he was considered a Palestinian, and in the territories, his life was in danger due to his conversion.

As we film Yaniv, he is approached by a man who tells him that he saw the footageof his release from prison on the news and that it was Yaniv’s steadfast belief in Judaism, which affirmed his own beliefs and brought him closer to his own faith. Yaniv is moved by the encounter.

Two years later, Yaniv is a star student at his yeshiva, has an adoptive family, and several matchmakers working to find him the right match. He has been living in Israel as a temporary resident, dedicating his life to the Torah, working odd jobs, dreaming of becoming a citizen, and even joining the military.

24Jewish Video Clip of the day, Valentine’s Day in Tel Aviv  and  A Jewish Star GREAT VIDEOS SELECTION

valentinexy February 14th marks Valentine’s Day, and though not a Jewish holiday, it appears the young and in love celebrate in the Jewish State as well. Jennifer KaidenAmerican Tourist in Israel: “I celebrate Valentine’s Day because celebrating love is important and it doesn’t matter where you are around the world, it’s important for everyone.”  Yuval Sela, Flower Shop Salesman: “Every year we sell on Valentine’s Day, it’s a big day for business, people like roses, like colors. It’s a love day, people like celebration, to go out. First they buy flowers, and then the rest.” Netta Kaiden, American Tourist in Israel: “I think it’s very nice to express your love to someone you love every day, but if you have a special day, even better.” Saint Valentine’s Day is of Christian origin. And in the Hebrew calendar there is another day celebrated by couples called ‘Tu Beav’. Oren Migdal, Chabad representative: “I think it’s very sad that Jews who have traditions of thousands of years and have their own holidays imitate the non-Jews and take their holidays”. Udi Kobi, Tel Aviv Resident: “People don’t know really what is to be a jew, what is Christianity. They don’t know. So they celebrate what they think is good. I don’t judge them, but it is confusion.” Netta Kaiden, American Tourist in Israel: “If they don’t lose their connection to their heritage, I don’t think there’s a problem, you can celebrate.” Jennifer KaidenAmerican Tourist in Israel: “It’s like eating different foods from all over the world.” Yossef Faibish, Bat Ayin Resident: “It’s a Christian holiday. I don’t know exactly what it means, but I know that if people are happy, it makes them happy and they celebrate together, that’s a good thing. So why not.” As in many other countries, many Tel Avivian restaurants, shops and boutiques offer special discounts on products and gifts in honor of the festive day. And though not everyone understands or agrees with the meaning of the holiday or where the tradition stems from, most people we spoke to here in Israel, always like a reason to celebrate. Yuval Sela, Flower Shop Salesman: “I celebrate anything I can celebrate. A party is a party, Valentine’s Day and other days, whichever.” Tamar Golan, Tel Aviv Resident: “If you want to celebrate love, just celebrate. For me, this is life, to enjoy life.” Oren Migdal, Chabad representative : Most of the Jews who celebrate this day, it isn’t because of religious reasons. It’s because they want to dance and party. We have our religion and thank God, we are happy about it.” And so, a Tel Avivian Valentine’s Day takes off, even here, in the Jewish State. Sivan Raviv, JN1, Tel Aviv  Part 2

Rambam Trailer. JewishHistoryDotOrg

http://JewishHistory.org

PHYSICIAN – PHILOSOPHER – CODIFIER – COMMENTATOR – SPIRITUAL LEADER Rambam, Rabbi Moshe ben Maimon, was born in Cordova Spain, early in the 12th century. Facing the terror of the fanatic Muslim Almohads, he and his family fled Cordova. For seven years they lived in the mountains and caves of Spain. During that time, his remarkable Torah and Talmudic knowledge increased. His love of Torah combined with his avid study of healing and natural medicine, the sciences, mathematics, astronomy – as well as the works of the classical philosophers, began to shape the destiny of his life. The legacy he left behind is astounding. He wrote Perush Ha-Mishnayot – his commentary on the Mishnah, which included the Thirteen Principles of Faith, before he was 30. He also penned Mishna Torah – over 14 volumes of the laws of the Torah. Amongst his numerous works he wrote and defined Sefer Ha-Mitzvot and the 613 mitzvahs – and The Guide to the Perplaxed – as spiritual and philosophical treatise. Rambam was a holistic healer of body and soul. In an age of ignorance, he was a shining light of compassion and commitment toward his fellow human beings.

How to Make Challah Bread

05.11.2009

Watch more How to Bake Bread videos:http://www.howcast.com/videos/239214-…

Making this braided egg bread from scratch is worth the effort.

Step 1: Mix yeast and water
Mix the warm water, 1/4 cup of flour, and the yeast together in a large bowl, and let it stand for 10 to 20 minutes, until it begins to foam and puff up.

Step 2: Beat in sugar, oil, eggs, and salt
Whisk in the sugar, oil, three eggs, and salt.

Tip
You can substitute ¼ cup honey for the sugar.

Step 3: Add the flour
Add in the rest of the flour 1 cup at a time, kneading it in with your hands once the mixture thickens. Knead for about five minutes until smooth, adding flour if it’s too sticky. Put the dough in a clean bowl, cover it with plastic wrap, and let it rise until the dough has doubled in size, about two hours.

Step 4: Punch it
Punch the dough down and transfer it to a lightly-floured surface. Knead for about five minutes, adding flour if needed.

Step 5: Make a braid
Divide the dough into three equal parts and roll each piece into an approximately 9-inch long rope. Braid the three ropes together, and pinch the ends together to seal.

Step 6: Let it sit
Put the braid on a greased baking sheet, cover with a dishcloth, and let it rise until it has doubled in size. The dough should stay dented when you poke it, instead of springing back into place.

Step 7: Preheat oven
Preheat the oven to 325 degrees Fahrenheit. Beat the remaining egg and brush it on the top of the braid. Sprinkle with poppy seeds if you like.
Step 8: Bake
Bake for 30 to 40 minutes until bread is golden brown. Test for doneness by taking it out of the oven and rapping it on the bottom with your knuckles; if it sounds hollow, it’s ready.
Tip
If the top is browning too fast, tent it with foil.
Step 9: Enjoy!
Cool at least one hour before slicing. If you have any left over, use it for French toast in the morning!

Challah loaves are shaped into spirals for the celebration of the Jewish New Year.

Jewish Food Kasha Kasha Recipes Kupecheskaya Russian Jewish

17.02.2014  Ask the Rabbi about Kashrut

I have been taking requests for about six months now and doing mostly Asian and Italian cuisines as they are my fave cuisines. The fact is that I LOVE all food and that is why I cook. Last week one of my subbers made a request that I cook some Jewish food. To tell the truth I was stumped by the request because I have never cooked Jewish food. I mean I have eaten matzo ball soup and I make and eat chopped liver and I have eaten at Jewish deli’s but I have never made Jewish food/cuisine. So I did some research and I came up with a traditional Jewish comfort food called Kasha! This week I am going to make the Russian Jewish version of this traditional Jewish comfort food. It is usually called Kasha Varnishkes but in Russian it’s called “Kupecheskaya.” It is a version of Kasha made with onions, garlic, mushrooms and bowtie pasta with the addition of scrambled or crumbled hard boiled eggs. I will be using scrambled eggs as they soak up the flavors of this dish quite well. You can find the exact recipe for this dish on my blog @ http://www.richardblainesezcooking.co

Izzy’s Traditional Jewish Recipes

 08.03.2007

Izzy originally from Poland, is an amazing person who spent from age 18 to 24 in German concentration camps doing slave labor, including Auschwitz. Never having had more then a 7th grade education he was liberated in 1945 with nothing more then the clothes he was given, yet he stayed in Germany and became a millionaire there while still in his thirties. In 1964 he came to the US and continued doing business here. Now at 85 he is retired doing the snowbird thing and doing his favorite thing, cooking. Everybody who has tasted his food raves about it, and everyone who knows him thinks he is a real character.
Just for a taste here are his Potato Latkes
available at http://www.simonsezproduction.com and Ebay
This is a 2 volumes, 2 discs DVD of Auschwitz survivor Izzy cooking up a storm in his kitchen. Watch him make Gefilte Fish, Chicken Soup, Lockschen Kugel, Potato Kugel, Potato Latkes, Horse Raddish, Brisket & Veal, Chicken Dish, Matze Brei and Butter Crumb Cake. Everything you need for the holidays. I’ve eaten this food and words can’t describe it. Don’t buy gefilte fish out of a jar make it from scratch, and you’ve never had chicken soup like this before. No wonder Izzy has so much energy at 85. He’s quite a character and fun to watch. This is truly food from the good old days and you can watch it being made. How easy is that to follow?

Now more recipes added: Izzy’s Cookies and Baking Dough, Apple Cake, Goulash, and Cucumber Salad. (The Goulash is my favorite) and really simple to make.

This is a glimpse of West Jerusalem, and the duality of life there as I witnessed it during my brief stay. West Jerusalem is a sociopolitical term referring to the part of Jerusalem that is mainly Jewish in population – the other half, East Jerusalem, being comprised mostly by Palestinian Arabs. One of the core issues between these two groups is over the control of this city. For more from this series, visit: davidfreid.com/stories-from-the-holyland/

Tomorrow’s Jews with Rabbi Noah Farkas, VBS, Josh Avedon, Jumpstart and Simone Zimmerman, Nat’l President-JStreet-Feb. 13, 2013

In 1964, Look Magazine published a noted article on “The Vanishing American Jew.” The article predicted that by century’s end, American Jews would reach their third generation on these shores and would assimilate into the American mainstream, just as every other ethnic community had before them. It’s 2013. Look Magazine is gone. We’re still here. We are now seeing the fifth and sixth generations of American Jews. Jewish life is thriving, but it is changing. Jewish life in America will persist into the next generations. But it will look very different than past generations. How will Jewish life change? What is the Jewish identity of this next generation? Is there reason for optimism?

The VBS College of Jewish Studies asked three young Jewish leaders to discuss, “Tomorrow’s Judaism.”
Josh Avedon, leader of Jumpstart; Simone Zimmerman, senior at UC Berkeley and national president of J-Street U and Rabbi Noah Farkas, of Valley Beth Shalom. The evening was hosted by Rabbi Ed Feinstein

15/13 Begegnet – Zentrum für jüdisch-christliche Geschichte und Kultur

 11.04.2013

Vor fast einem Jahr eröffnete der Verein Sächsischen Israelfreunde e.V. in Reichenbach ein Bildungs- und Begegnungszentrum für jüdisch-christliche Geschichte und Kultur. Der damals extra angereiste Israelisch Botschafter Yakov Hadas-Handelsmann maß dem Zentrum in Zeiten verschiedener Antisemitismus-Formen eine besondere Bedeutung zu. So könne die Begegnungsstätte unter anderem zur Aufklärung über das Judentum und den Staat Israel beitragen. Kurz vor dem 1. Geburtstag sahen wir uns in den Räumlichkeiten etwas genauer um

1000 Kilometer Zaun – Einmal rund um Israel  (Doku)

 20.12.2013

Viele Israelis liess die Meldung aufhorchen: Premier Netanjahu teilte mit, die Grenze nach Ägypten – quer durch die menschenleere Wüste im Süden – jetzt besonders sichern zu wollen. Die Regierung werde einen kilometerlangen Zaun bauen. Von Israels Grenzen war das bislang der letzte Abschnitt, der ohne auskam. Wenn die Wüstensperre fertig ist, hat sich das Land praktisch komplett eingezäunt.

Stacheldraht und Militär-Patroullien im Norden an der Grenze zu Libanon und Syrien. Ein langer Zaun Richtung Jordanien. Entlang der Palästinenser Gebiete ist es nicht nur die Hightech-Zaunanlage, sondern vielerorts eine Mauer – höher als die im ehemals geteilten Berlin. Selbst die Mittelmeerküste wird mit Unterwassersperren gesichert – und überall komplettiert modernste Überwachungstechnik das Sicherheitskonzept.

Christian Sievers und sein Team haben sich auf eine Reise entlang der Grenzen gemacht – einmal rund um Israel.

Sie treffen einen Chefkoch aus Deutschland, der in einer der instabilsten und explosivsten Gegenden der Welt ein erfolgreiches 5-Sterne Erholungs-Spa betreibt, und sind dabei, wenn israelische Familien auf Wochenend-Ausflug die Geschichte ihrer Armee erkunden. Nur, dass das, was aussieht wie ein Abenteuerspielplatz, reales Schlachtfeld ist mit echten Minen! Der Film zeigt das absurdeste Dorf des Nahostkonflikts, die tiefste Opernaufführung der Welt und erkundet, warum das Rote Kreuz mit Helfern aus Afrika ausrückt, um eine Apfelernte zu retten.

Es geht um das Leben im Schatten der Grenze, abseits der großen Politik und der Schlagzeilen. Ein Leben, bei dem nicht immer klar ist, wer hier wen ausgrenzt.

So eintönig und deprimierend die Grenzanlagen sind, so überwältigend ist die Landschaft. Die Tour im Film geht durch wilde Bergwelt und endlose rote Wüsten, über sanfte Hügelketten hin zu tropischen Korallenriffen – alles auf einer Fläche so groß wie Hessen.

“Wer mit den Menschen gerade im unmittelbaren Grenzgebiet redet, hört viele Geschichten, die Hoffnung machen,” sagt Nahost-Korrespondent Sievers. Aber ein Blick auf die Landkarte ernüchtert dann auch wieder. “Was unsere Reise einmal rundherum überhaupt möglich gemacht hat, ist letztlich das Ergebnis von jahrzehntelangem Konflikt und Krieg. Hier laufen die Strassen eben nicht von einem Land ins andere, sondern fast immer parallel zur Grenze. Zu oft ist von vornherein klar: Sie sollen nicht verbinden, sie trennen.”

Die hebräische Stadt – 100 Jahre Tel Aviv (Doku, 2009)

 29.02.2012

Mit keiner anderen Stadt wird Tel Aviv so gerne verglichen wie mit New York. Die hebräische Stadt ist hektisch, aufregend, hässlich, schön, jung, kreativ, multikulturell, modisch, launisch, absurd, witzig, und vor allem: ein Wunder.

Vor genau 100 Jahren gab es dort, wo Tel Aviv heute steht, fast nur Sanddünen. Und sonst nichts. Tel Aviv war ein Traum: Die erste hebräische Stadt seit den Zeiten der Bibel, die erste Stadt, in der Juden und nur Juden leben. Aber frei und unabhängig – im Gegensatz zum Ghetto.

Tel Aviv ist die Anti-These zu Jerusalem: Keine Stadt, in der der jahrtausende alte jüdische Glaube tonnenschwer auf jedem Stein liegt, keine Stadt mit einer wilden, bewegten Geschichte, sondern ein unbeschriebenes Blatt, ein neues Konzept, die Idee des “neuen Juden”, der sich von der Vergangenheit der Verfolgung, der Unterdrückung, aber auch der Enge der Religion entfernt hat, um ein neues Kapitel in der jüdischen Geschichte zu schreiben: Das hebräische Kapitel.

Mit Hebräisch als Sprache einer neuen Kultur, die sich auf die Zukunft, und nicht mehr auf die Vergangenheit konzentriert, die hoffnungsfroh ins 20. und nun ins 21. Jahrhundert blickt und nicht mehr rückwärtsgewandt 3.000 Jahre Geschichte immer wieder aufs Neue “durcharbeitet”.

SENDETERMIN
Di, 15.12.09, 03.45 Uhr
Tel Aviv als Schnittpunkt zwischen Okzident und Orient, als Sammelbecken für Menschen aus mehr als 120 Ländern, als Stadt ohne Geschichte, die sich ständig neu erfindet, sei es in der Architektur, in der Literatur, in der Musik, im Theater, also in der Kunst, als auch im Sozialen und vor allem: in der Politik. Denn Tel Aviv will “Normalität” schaffen, Normalität für Juden, die nicht mehr verfolgt werden, aber die sich auch nicht mehr im Krieg befinden. Und so kommt es, dass Tel Aviv auch zum Zentrum des Widerstands gegen Besatzung und Siedlungspolitik, gegen Rechts, gegen Nationalismus und Orthodoxie geworden ist.

Richard C. Schneiders Film “Die hebräische Stadt” erzählt die Geschichte der Stadt und ihrer Menschen, erzählt von den Jahren des Aufbruchs, der kulturellen Umbrüche, den politischen Verwerfungen – und von den jungen Kreativen, die diese Stadt zu einem einzigartigen Sammelpunkt neuer Ideen machen. Weit über 60 Prozent der Bewohner von Tel Aviv sind unter 40! Eine junge Stadt mit einer jungen Bevölkerung. Eine Stadt mit Zukunft, die jedoch ständig bedroht wird — zur Zeit durch Auslöschungsdrohungen aus Teheran, durch Terror und Raketenangriffen in der Vergangenheit.

Goldenes Kalb 1 Kabbala Fankfurt

12.02.2014

Das goldene Kalb
Zitat 1
1 Als aber das Volk sah, dass Mose ausblieb und nicht wieder von dem Berge zurückkam, sammelte es sich gegen Aaron und sprach zu ihm: Auf, mach uns einen G-tt, der vor uns hergehe! Denn wir wissen nicht, was diesem Mann Mose widerfahren ist, der uns aus Ägyptenland geführt hat.
2 Aaron sprach zu ihnen: Reißt ab die goldenen Ohrringe an den Ohren eurer Frauen, eurer Söhne und eurer Töchter und bringt sie zu mir.
3 Da riss alles Volk sich die goldenen Ohrringe von den Ohren und brachte sie zu Aaron.
4 Und er nahm sie von ihren Händen und bildete das Gold in einer Form und machte ein gegossenes Kalb. Und sie sprachen: Das ist dein G-tt, Israel, der dich aus Ägyptenland geführt hat!
(2. Moses 32:1-4)

Zitat 2
19 Sie machten ein Kalb am Horeb und beteten das gegossene Bild an
20 und verwandelten die Herrlichkeit ihres G-ttes in das Bild eines Ochsen, der Gras frisst.
21 Sie vergaßen G-tt, ihren Heiland, der so große Dinge in Ägypten getan hatte,
22 Wunder im Lande Hams und schreckliche Taten am Schilfmeer.
23 Und er gedachte, sie zu vertilgen, wäre nicht Mose gewesen, sein Auserwählter; der trat vor ihm in die Bresche, seinen Grimm abzuwenden, dass er sie nicht verderbe.
(Psalmen 106:19-23)

Zitat 3
Wo keine Rinder sind, da ist die Krippe leer; aber die Kraft des Ochsen bringt reichen Ertrag.
(Sprüche 14:4)

Zitat 4
3 Ein Ochse kennt seinen Herrn und ein Esel die Krippe seines Herrn; aber Israel kennt’s nicht, und mein Volk versteht’s nicht.
(Jesaja 1:3)

Shlomo Raskin öffnet für euch ein Fenster zu den chassidischen, spirituelle Gedanken der Geheim-Lehre der Thora, nach der Lehre vom Lubawitchen Rebbe.

Cincinnati 2020: The Esther and Maurice Becker Networking and Mentoring Center

At its 117th Annual Meeting on May 23, 2013, the Jewish Federation of Cincinnati announced an exciting new Cincinnati 2020 project, the Esther and Maurice Becker Networking and Mentoring Center.

Cincinnati 2020 is a community-wide planning process that envisions Cincinnati in the year 2020 as a model Jewish community that attracts, retains and meaningfully engages individuals and families with its breadth and quality of Jewish life.

Federation President Andy Berger said, “This innovative initiative will allow us to become the best networked community for young adults in America. It will enable us to attract and retain talented young Jewish people to Cincinnati by connecting them with successful leaders, professionals and mentors who can help them become meaningfully established in our local Jewish community.”

In addition, the Center will assist with Cincinnati-Israel professional exchanges and programs, to ensure advocates for Israel among the next generation of Federation and community leaders. The Esther and Maurice Becker Networking and Mentoring Center will collaborate with and expand upon the Federation’s existing Young Adult Division (YAD), as well as other community efforts, including the new JVS Career Services and The Mayerson Foundation’s Access and Shalom Family programs.

The creation of the Center is the result of the generosity and vision of Esther and Maurice Becker, who established the Esther and Maurice Becker Endowment Fund with a $1.75 million gift to the Jewish Federation of Cincinnati.

“Esther and Maurice Becker lived a relatively modest life,” said Berger. “However, they were consistent supporters to the Jewish Federation and were, in fact, Silver Circle Society members, having given for over 25 years. They were true members of the community, benefitting from and appreciating what it has to offer. They participated in many community organizations throughout their lives, including Golf Manor Synagogue, the JCC and Cedar Village. And when the time came, they were able to give back to this community that had enriched their own lives and to leave a precious legacy that will enrich our future for generations.”

Beth Guttman, 2013 Robert V. Goldstein Volunteer of the Year Award Winner

On May 23, 2013, at the Jewish Federation of Cincinnati’s 117th Annual Meeting, President Andy Berger presented the Robert V. Goldstein Volunteer of the Year Award to Beth Guttman.

The Goldstein Award recognizes the efforts of volunteer leaders who have made a significant impact in the Jewish Federation of Cincinnati and the Cincinnati Jewish community at large. Created in 1990 in the memory of Bob Goldstein, an exemplary Jewish communal leader, the Goldstein Award is recognized as the most prominent of the Jewish Federation of Cincinnati’s awards.

Guttman is a long-time leader and volunteer in several community organizations throughout Greater Cincinnati. She is the treasurer of The Jewish Foundation of Cincinnati’s board of trustees. She is a past president of the Jewish Federation of Cincinnati and currently sits on its board. Guttman has also served as the Federation’s Vice President of Financial Resources Development and on the Planning & Allocations committee and its Connecting council. She is a past president of Yavneh Day School (now Rockwern Academy) and is a member of and volunteers regularly at Adath Israel Congregation.

Outside of the Jewish community, Guttman is a newly elected member of the board of trustees of Cincinnati Children’s Hospital Medical Center and serves on the executive committee and board of the YWCA of Greater Cincinnati. She is a volunteer at Tender Mercies in Over-the-Rhine and the Winners Walk Tall program at Silverton Paideia Elementary School. In 2007, she was recognized for her contributions to the community as a Cincinnati Enquirer Woman of the Year.

Guttman said, “I am honored to receive this award named after Bob Goldstein, whom I admire greatly for his commitment to our local Jewish community and his tireless efforts toward Jewish continuity. Through my work in the community—at the Foundation and the Federation, helping make possible programs that create a vibrant future—I hope to carry on Bob’s legacy. I think of the outstanding leaders who have been Goldstein honorees, and I’m humbled to be included in their company.”

Privilege, prayer, parenthood


Privilege, prayer, parenthoodPosted: 01 Mar 2014 12:06 PM PST

Mudra_000There’s a teaching from the Maggid of Mezritch about morning prayer. I love this teaching — and I also struggle with it. Here it is:

Take special care to guard your tongue
before the morning prayer.
Even greeting your fellow, we are told,
can be harmful at that hour.
A person who wakes up in the morning is
like a new creation.
Begin your day with unkind words
or even trivial matters —
even though you may later turn to prayer,
you have not been true to your creation.
All of your words each day
are related to one another.
All of them are rooted
in the first words that you speak.

(That’s as cited in Your Word is Fire: The Hasidic Masters on Contemplative Prayer.)

It’s a beautiful teaching. I love the idea of taking special care to guard what comes out of my mouth, especially first thing in the morning. I love the idea that when one wakes up in the morning one is like a new creation. I love the idea that all of the words I will speak in a day are rooted, somehow, in the first words I uttered upon waking. What a beautiful idea, to keep silence until it’s time for morning prayer, and to begin the day with praise and song. I’ve done that on retreat, and it’s a joy.

Here’s the thing, though: most of us don’t live on retreat. Most of us don’t have the luxury of beginning the day in perfect silence and contemplation, gliding into a joyful morning service, and only then engaging in trivial or ordinary speech. Most of the people I know wake up to someone’s needs: the needs of children, the needs of parents, the needs of a sick or disabled partner, the needs of animals. Who has the luxury of avoiding “trivial matters” until after morning prayer? Certainly not me.

I think it’s possible that the holy Maggid, may his memory be a blessing, was speaking out of a kind of privilege. Something tells me he wasn’t waking up to care for a child who chatters and expects answers — presumably that was his wife’s job.

Waking up to care for a child is a privilege, in the sense that I’m grateful to have the opportunity to do it. But waking up and being able to devote oneself entirely to spiritual concerns, because someone else is doing the familial caregiving — and not noticing that, nor thinking about the fact that for the person doing the caregiving, the day necessarily unfolds differently — is a sign of privilege. It’s unconscious, but that doesn’t make it any less present. (In the words of author Cat Valente, “Your privilege is comprised of the questions you’ve never had to ask.”) Most of the beautiful spiritual texts at our disposal were written by men, because for most of our religious history, men are the ones who’ve access to the lives conducive to writing those texts.

Of course, in the Maggid’s paradigm, prayer was a mitzvah incumbent upon men but not upon women for precisely this reason. Women were presumed to have familial obligations which exempted us from prayer. (I’ve written about this before, mostly since I became a parent — see, for instance, the post Time-bound, 2010.) But I live in an intentionally egalitarian setting, spiritually and otherwise. His gender-determined world is not the world I inhabit, nor the kind of community in which I serve. And yet I recognize that my world isn’t wholly liberated, either. Even in my egalitarian community, it’s most often women who do the lioness’ share of the caregiving — not always, but often. And I suspect that often we measure our progress in spiritual life against a yardstick designed for people who don’t have those responsibilities.

I don’t think the Maggid could have imagined the life I lead: ardently religious but not always in ways he would have recognized; invested in prayer and in God, but also accustomed now to finding new ways of living with prayerful consciousness, ways which don’t require me to set aside my parenting responsibilities in order to enter into relationship with God. For that matter, I don’t think it’s only women who struggle with these choices — not in today’s paradigm. Those with caregiving responsibilities, and those who work multiple jobs to get by, and probably other groups of people I’m not thinking of (so feel free to chime in!) — I suspect that most of us today experience tension between our responsibilities and our yearned-for spiritual lives.

How might I reframe the Maggid’s teaching? Maybe something like this:

Take special care to speak with kindness
when you first wake to those for whom you care.
Even in greeting your child, patient, partner, or loved one
you can cultivate compassion and lovingkindness.
A person who wakes up in the morning is
like a new creation.
If you begin your day with frustration
or, worse, resentment —
though you may later turn to gentleness,
you’ve started the day on the wrong foot.
All of your words each day
are related to one another.
All of them are rooted
in the first words that you speak.

If you would adapt his teaching differently, I’d love to see your version in comments. (Or if you want to keep his teaching precisely as it is — which I admit I do too! I both want to preserve it, and want to adapt it. I think I need both.)

I don’t want to have to choose between “spiritual life” and “caring for my child.” I want to be able to engage in spiritual lifethrough caring for my child. I want to make caring for my child part of my spiritual life. Spiritual life isn’t what happens after I’m able to put my caregiving responsibilities aside. Spiritual life and spiritual practice are — they have to be — bigger than that, deeper than that, richer than that. (I’ve written about this before, too — see This is spiritual life, 2011.) Maybe that means spiritual life takes different shapes. Maybe it means we need a more expansive sense of what spiritual life means.

Here’s one more teaching about prayer from that same English compilation. This one’s from Zavat Ha-Rivash, a collection of teachings attributed to the Baal Shem Tov and his disciple the Maggid of Mezritch:

There are times when you are not at prayer
but nevertheless you can feel close to God.
Your mind can ascend even above the heavens.

And there are also times,
in the very midst of prayer,
when you find yourself unable to ascend.
At such times stand where you are
and serve with love.

“At such times stand where you are and serve in love.” I love that. Wherever we are — whatever we’re doing — we can seek to wholly inhabit that place, and to serve in love. To serve the people for whom we care. To serve God. To serve God through serving the people for whom we care. To serve the spark of God in our loved ones; to see the spark of God in our loved ones. Stand where we are, and serve in love. It’s a beautiful ideal… and I recognize that I can’t always manage that, either. I can aspire to it! But as with any other spiritual practice, there are times when it comes easily, and times when I can’t seem to get there at all.

That’s part of why I’m grateful to have the privilege of going on retreat, from time to time. (Or just going on a rabbinic business trip where I get to focus exclusively on my rabbinic life instead of on my other responsibilities for a few days.) Relinquishing my parenting responsibilities for a few days can be a gift, as can focusing instead on cultivating the life of the spirit and nurturing my connection with God. But what do I do when I inevitably fail, in ordinary life, to measure up to the kind of focused spiritual immersion I can manage when someone else is preparing the food, doing the dishes, and looking after my child?

The answer has to be that the goal isn’t to replicate the retreat experience at home, but to bring the sustenance of the retreat experience into my householder spiritual life. Which is also a ordinary mom life, and I don’t want to fall into the false dichotomy of privileging the “spiritual” part of my life over the “mom” part. In my best moments, I can glimpse the life of the spirit elevating and enlivening the alphabet cereal and the board games and the books before bedtime. The mom life is a spiritual life. Or it can be, when I’m awake to it. And when I’m not able to access that awareness, at least I can try to stand where I am and to bring love to whatever task is at hand.

The Jewish exodus from Arab lands in the 20th century was a result of the expulsion and mass departure primarily of Sephardi and Mizrahi background from Araband Islamic countries. The migration started in the late 19th century, but accelerated after the 1948 Arab–Israeli War. According to official Arab statistics, 856,000 Jews left their homes in Arab countries from 1948 until the early 1970s. Some 600,000 resettled in Israel,[2] leaving behind property valued today at more than $300 billion.[1][3] Jewish-owned real-estate left behind in Arab lands has been estimated at 100,000 square kilometers (four times the size of the State of Israel).[2]Thus, of the nearly 900,000 Jewish refugees from Arab lands, approximately 600,000 were absorbed by Israel; the remainder went to Europe and the Americas.[4][5]
