I am a 15 year old girl who has been raised questionably Conservative.
I've been given a little more than a basic education, know how
to read and am learning to speak Hebrew, and go to the occasional Shabbat
service (when I can get my parents to take me). My parents gave
me what little Judiasm they believe in, but I want more. I've
been studying for quite a while and am looking for ways to increase
my Jewish observances. Unfortunately, I know my parents would
not be very accepting of my decision to do so.
am a member of a Chevra Kadisha and desire any and all information on
the proper rituals associated with the tahara. Also the "whys"
of such rituals would be helpful since I have learned all I know from
the older women in the Chevra. Thanks.
I read an article about your book which said that originally you made a tape for your friend. Is that tape available, or do you plan to make a version of it? I would be very interested in getting a copy. TIA and kol tuv, Meredith
chavurah will soon be discussing the Jewish view of creationism vs evolution.
What is the traditional view? How do those who believe in creationism
explain scientific evolutionary facts? How do those who believe
in evolution explain the bible?
What are Amidah and Haskalah?
Maybe, a Kabbalah question? My wife recently died and I felt that I was receiving communication from her nashama in the form of numbers, all being 4, 7, and 12. So, I went looking for help on the internet and found a comment that angels travel in groups of 4, 7, and 12. I'm so sorry that I didn't print it for I have not been able to find it again since. Question: Is this a familiar concept? Where can I find more about it? Would you please contact me through e-mail?
We are a school in Shropshire, England. We are currently researching Jewish Marriage as part of our Religious Education course. Any details about Jewish Marriage and marriage vows would be useful. Thank you
is a hadassah? Is it a temple, or a special group of the temple?
