NFTY-PAR: Inserting Judaism

Judaism is what brings us together. It is the one thing all kids in NFTY-PAR have in common, no matter how religious one is or what synagogue they belong to.

This is partly because all of the Torah portions don’t fit in a lunar year (there are 54 torah portions and only 50 weeks in a lunar calendar), and partly because these two portions flow into each other almost seamlessly as the Torah begins to wrap up.

#BlogElul 3 Bless: That One Time at The Mall

10 August 2013

A memory from high school: My friend Michelle and I were at the mall (yes, some New Jersey stereotypes are true). We were just finishing lunch and we looked up at each other and said, “Hey! We should do Birkat Hamazon*!!” There are a couple of things that I find interesting about this memory–looking back at it with an adult rabbi lens.
