Balfour Declaration Centenary–and Calls for its Boycott by the Guardian

Dancing with the Torah

"My grandfather told me that he once attended the Cantonist Shul on Simchat Torah. The Cantonists could dance like Cossacks. They were huge, strong men, and the heavy Torah scrolls would seem like toothpicks in their arms.

The Spartans used their mistakes as lessons for the future. Pinocchio chose to ignore the lessons and continue to do as he pleased. Who are we on Yom Kippur, Spartans or Pinocchio?

Saying the Unsayable: Does Reciting the 13 Middot ALWAYS “Work”?

What is the difference between religion and magic?  Each makes the claim that events in the physical world can flow from metaphysically effective language.  Mages recite spells; sages recite prayers.  So why is it that the Torah bans magic yet mandates prayer?
