Haggadah in the Himalayas - Australian Jewish News

Fri, 13 Apr 2018 12:00:00 EST

IF the question were posed, “Which city hosts the biggest seder in the world?” likely answers may include Jerusalem or New York. Somewhat surprisingly, however, the answer sits high up in the Nepalese mountaintops in the predominantly Hindu and Buddhist city of Kathmandu, where the city’s first official seder was led in 1989 by Rabbi Mendel Kastel of Jewish House – then a 20-year-old rabbinical student at yeshivah in Sydney – along with fellow student Mendel Lipskier. This year, for the event’s 30th iteration Rabbi Kastel returned for a Pesach celebration to ­remember…

My Remarkable Father, Rabbi Menachem Rodal, On His First Yahrzeit - Jewish Press

Thu, 12 Apr 2018 12:00:00 EST

...Rabbi Menachem Aaron HaKohen was a true lover of peace. It hurt him – almost physically – to see argument and strife. He took pains to greet and get to know those who were overlooked by others. Our Shabbos table was filled with guests, including those who would not have been invited to a meal if not for my father. My father would say that he especially loved “back-of-the-shul Jews” – those who did not feel comfortable or welcomed enough to leave the back wall of shul…

Wed, 11 Apr 2018 12:00:00 EST

To butcher Billy Joel’s lyrics a bit, “Who needs a ‘Chabad House’ out in Hackensack?” Well, it’s clear to many that Bergen County does.

I grew up with this mentality of public service, of not living life simply for yourself.”…

Tue, 10 Apr 2018 12:00:00 EST

...Rabbi Feldman is also working to allow Jews to consume kosher meat on the northern island.
