Putting Abominations Back into Perspective To begin, Malcor decries Mr. Literal for picking and choosing which bans on abominations he will consider and which he will ignore, making a particular point about Leviticus 20:13 — apparently, it seems, Malcor doesn’t take Mr. Literal seriously because she foresees that his type is unwilling to execute the homosexual, called for by Leviticus 20:13. From a Jewish perspective, though, it’s pretty well established that we no longer function in the judicial capacity necessary to carry out corporeal punishments, making this a contrived argument.

Rabbis Without Borders Fellowship I participated this year in a unique opportunity for rabbis produced by Clal – The National Jewish Center for Learning and Leadership. Called Rabbis Without Borders (RWB), the fellowship consisted of meeting four times in New York City at Clal’s offices in midtown Manhattan for two days apiece (thank God, during the week and not on Shabbat).

One thing that immediately stands out for any rabbi or, for that matter, anybody in the Jewish non-profit world is that the fellowship pays entirely for the fellows’ travel and hotel stay (and not a hotel half-way across the city; the hotel is located less than a block away from their office), which sends a message before one even participates that they are serious about what they are trying to accomplish.
