"There is a fascinating parallel to the alternative approaches to Shabbat within our biblical tradition. In one version of the Ten Commandments we find the “religious” reason for cessation of work on the Sabbath: “For in six days the Lord made the heavens and the earth, the sea and all that is in them, but he rested on the seventh day.” In Exodus we find a “social” reason: “So that your male and female servants may rest, as you do,” basing the commandment on our people’s formative experience as an enslaved nation. This is, after all, the great innovation of Judaism: incorporating faith with a commitment to social justice, or – as Mordecai Kaplan aptly labeled it, promoting a religion of ethical nationhood."

Thanks to Ariel Schwartz for this article!
Extreme unplugging is kind of a fad but who can afford to cut off their Internet for weeks on end? Try it just one day a week.

Enjoy!
 
I learned this old song from a friend who passed away this week. The clip comes from a Scottish Festival in Dallas last May ... my son Jaime joins me on octave mandolin.

I hope you'll give it a listen. Thanks

Rome, on the banks of the Tiber River not far from the Mediterranean Sea, is an excellent starting place to explore European Jewish history. Home to a Jewish community of 13,000 that has lived here since the second century B.C., the city offers many Jewish places to explore.

Yes, it's basically a big ad for Friskies cat food, but this video is so well done that it's almost hard to believe you're watching a commercial (until the actual sales pitch, anyway). In this vid, which the cat food company did with Buzzfeed, a ...
