Hear O Israel the Lord our God the Lord is one.
You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart, with all your soul, and with all your might. And these words which I command you today shall be upon your heart. You shall teach them thoroughly to your children, and you shall speak of them...
I follow the Old Testament along with a few other people. We are looking for a refuge from modern culture which we consider to be evil. This is partly for our families. We do not want our children to grow up around evil, and we ourselves would like to associate with moral people. We do not...
Exactly one year ago, a white supremacist attacked the
Sikh temple in Oak Creek, Wisconsin. Six people were
killed. And from that tragedy went forth a chant that
even made it onto a T-shirt: “We are all Sikhs.”
A few days later, I attended an interfaith Ramadan
break fast in Morristown, New...
Holocaust deniers are people who contend that the Holocaust - the attempt by Nazi Germany to annihilate European Jewry during World War Two - never happened.
Deniers dismiss all assertions that the Holocaust took place as conscious fabrications, or as psychotic delusions. Some even claim that...
This is a very enlightening read from the "Sikh review", a pdf article on some similarities between Judaism and Sikhism, which I think could bode well as a discussion point for interfaith dialogue:
The article also discusses some...
A survey published this week found more young people turning away from religion, believing that the definition of being "moral" meant looking after your family rather than taking part in religion.
More than half of the 16 to 24-year-olds questioned in the poll said their peers were less...

The Confounding, All-Penetrating and Revolutionary Voice of God
The covenant ceremony at Sinai is the pivot on which the rest of Torah turns. Everything that precedes Sinai in the Torah's narrative leads up to it. Everything...
Tu B'Shvat, long ago the annual date set aside in ancient Israel for determining the age of trees, essentially as a tax matter, today marks what has come to be known as the "Jewish New Year for Trees." In that fact, it is not unique -- it is one of four "new years" events...

Kabbalah: A Sacred Science of the Future
I enjoyed reading "The Jewish View of Creationism" by Rabbi Adam Jacobs on Huffington Post. Coincidentally, we at Kabbalah Publishing are re-editing one of the Rav's previous works in which he discusses time and space from the perspective of...
A recent article by preeminent Jewish historian Dr. Jonathan Sarna demonstrates how, contrary to predictions, rifts between American Jewish denominations have failed to tear our community asunder -- even between Orthodox and the more liberal streams -- and in fact, there's considerably more...
Jewish Publication Society, 360 pages, $20. We are in an age of tremendous interest in Jewish-Christian relations, so new books on the topic come as no surprise.
I believe in a GOD that is so humble that he will bring himself down to human form, a GOD that does not hate, a GOD that does not give us one try but helps us to realise that only HE/SHE/IT is perfect and we are not, many lives to get it right. In these religions, God is jealous, hates, and...
Symbolizes: Beauty, strength, holiness, mourning
*In the Bible, a man could take a Nazirite vow and assume a certain kind of holiness. Part of this vow includes not cutting one's hair. Samson was a Nazirite whose hair held the secret to his strength. *Mourners do not cut...
Hereis a jewish view of God
Everyone is familiar with the Shema, the Jewish Pledge of Allegiance: "Hear O Israel, the Lord our God, the Lord is one" (Deut. 6:4).
"Oneness" is crucial to a proper understanding of God. In fact, Maimonides writes that the highest level of wisdom a human...
