How I Became a Superhero, Part I - A Kabbalistic SciFi Fantasy

Fri, 01 Dec 2017 12:00:00 EST

I first saw Hi while I was jogging beneath the tall trees of the canyon. A small child was clasping each of his hands, an older one running ahead. As I passed him, I just yelled, “Hi.” He shouted back, “How do you know my name?” “I don’t know your name, old man,” I muttered. I kept moving. “My name is Hi!” he said, the “H” with a guttural sound. I needed time alone. I needed to think. I wasn’t interested in getting into a conversation with some old man babysitting his grandchildren. “Where are you running?” he yelled. “You don’t have the strength yet.” That stopped me. “How do you know I don’t have the strength?” “You look so pale, like someone who just got out of the hospital,” he answered. And then, “Tell me what happened? You had an accident?” “I was scuba diving. Hey, I was out for four months! They thought I was dead. That would make anyone weak!” Hi looked me straight in the eye. A caring look, l



Who Is a Jew? - Solving the Mystery of Jewish Identity

Wed, 22 Nov 2017 12:00:00 EST

Jewish identity is both simple and mysterious. Simple: A Jew is anyone who was born of a Jewish mother, or has undergone conversion according to halachah (Jewish law). This has been the case since Biblical times and is firmly established in the Code of Jewish Law. The Jews live their lives in accordance with Judaism, the oldest monotheistic religion. And mysterious. You’ll never hear of an atheist Protestant or a Catholic Muslim, but a Jewish atheist, or even a Jew who converts to another religion, is still a Jew.Talmud Sanhedrin 44a. Shulchan Aruch, Even HaEzer 44:9. Ibid Yoreh De’ah 267:8. Rabbi Moshe Isserles requires that this returnee perform ritual immersion and accept the commandments before a tribunal, but he states that this is a rabbinic requi

How To Be a Man That Women Respect - The Female Admiration Test

Mon, 30 Oct 2017 12:00:00 EST

Man Versus Beast There’s really only one thing a man needs to do to gain a woman’s respect. He needs to be a man. The good news is that women want a man. The even better news is that there aren’t many to go around—which means that if you can be one, you‘re at the head of the pack. What is a man? A man is a multi-storied, burning furnace withA man is a multi-storied, burning furnace with a cooling system on the roof. a cooling system on the roof. A two legged, upright, impulsive, passion-driven beast with a brain that keeps him in check. If there’s no beast—well, why would a woman want one of those? If the brain on top is not doing its job—then what is there to respect? Which means that being a man is mostly about not being the animal you feel you are. Men, you get that. Women—I know it’s hard, but you just have to believe us. Perhaps a woman can be a woman just by being her n



How Can Grandma Make Me Jewish If I Don’t Believe In Anything? - How one-quarter can make a whole Jew

Mon, 16 Oct 2017 12:00:00 EST

Dear Ask-The-Rabbi, Last week these dudes in fedoras pulled a bar mitzvah on me. I’m twenty years old. I never had a bar mitzvah. Simple reason: I’m not Jewish. My dad’s not Jewish. My mom’s not Jewish. But I let out to these guys that my mom’s mom is Jewish. Next thing I know, they wrap out these black leather straps and boxes on me and tell me I’m getting bar mitzvatized. So I protest. I don’t believe in Judaism, I tell them. I don’t even know anything about it. If I don’t believe, how can I be Jewish? Besides, I really don’t look Jewish. —Ryan Ching Dear Ryan, I can sympathize. I mean, nobody’s going to tell you that your Buddhist grandmother makes you a Buddhist. As far as I know, the same applies to any religion. If you don’t believe in it, how can you be a part of it? Neither does one Irish grandmother make you Irish. But being Jewish is not about religion, Bein
