The Knitted Yarmulka

There was a time in Israel when any yarmulka was a negative factor in attaining a senior position in a company.

Going Uptown

I was walking down Coney Island Ave. when I saw an old acquaintance eating in a non-kosher restaurant. I wanted to approach him and ask him if he would be interested in putting on tefillin.

Greeting him warmly, I gently asked if he would like to put on tefillin. He politely refused and, after a brief conversation, I was on my way.

Masterdaf.com – Talmud On The Web

One of the newest websites to sprout up on the Internet is Masterdaf.com. A few weeks ago, www.masterdaf.com appeared on the Internet as an experimental website, and, as of recently, is fully functional. Masterdaf.com is not just another one of those pointless dot com websites that have nothing to offer or, even worse, try to sell you a worthless product.

Superstition Or… ? (Part I)

Dear Rebbetzin Jungreis: I discovered your book, The Committed Life and I must tell you that it changed my own life. I come from an atheistic background and never gave Judaism a second thought until a Christian friend bought me your book as a gift. Since reading it, I have embarked on a quest to find out more. I guess I'm still not totally observant, but I am definitely heading in that direction. Most recently, I read your new book, The Committed Marriage, and that was an amazing experience. I only wish that I lived in New York City so that I could come to your classes and study with you. In any event, thank you for writing and sharing so much wisdom with us.
