Election 2012:

Dear Rabbi Friedman, 'שי

The election craze is about to begin. The Democratic National Convention is September 3 and the Republican National Convention is August 27. As election and policy related issues are discussed by the public at large, we wanted to present to you an opportunity to capitalize on this interest. Rabbis Nochum Mangel and Shmuel Klatzkin have developed a curriculum that has already been taught in many communities. We are now launching a video series of Rabbi Mangel, the course's co-author, teaching these classes.

New Course: Election 2012


  • The One Percent and Redistribution of Wealth
  • Funding Social Services
  • Taxation with Representation
  • Health Care
  • Campaign Finance
  • The Immigration Debate

The result of countless hours of research, this course presents authentic Torah sources in an unbiased, non-partisan manner so that students can make their own choices about the hot-button issues of today. The aim of this series is to rise above the same old partisan talking points and look at things from a Torah perspective. In keeping with this theme, the course tag-line is "We present the sources. You decide."

Click here to view the series website which includes the full schedule of classes.

The first class in this series aired on Thursday, August 16, with new classes airing each Thursday night for six weeks. Each video appears with an accompanying student hand-out.

These are key issues! We better be sure to know what to think as Jews.

Your feedback is always appreciated!

What is Lag Ba’Omer?

Lag Ba'Omer is a festive day on the Jewish calendar, celebrating the anniversary of the passing of the great sage and mystic Rabbi Shimon bar Yochai, author of the Zohar. It also commemorates another event. In the weeks between Passover and Shavuot, a plague raged amongst the disciples of the great sage Rabbi Akiva. On Lag BaOmer the dying ceased.
Lag Baomer this year is on May 10, 2012.

Fascinating Facts: Exploring the Myths and Mysteries of Judaism

Does Judaism believe in guardian angels? Why do Jews use matchmakers? Who wrote the handwriting on the wall? A fun course in Jewish cultural literacy, full of surprising facts, myths, and mysteries surrounding Jewish tradition and practice.

Course Overview

Know Something About the Bible?
Is “an eye for an eye” meant to be taken literally? Was the fruit of the Tree of Knowledge an apple? Did the Jews actually cross the Red Sea? We leap beyond a Hebrew School comprehension of the Bible, as we explore the deeper significance of its stories and their profound lessons for life.
From Womb to Tomb
Why celebrate a bar or bat mitzvah? What’s with breaking glass under the wedding canopy? Peppered with astounding insights along the way, we’ll journey from birth through burial, infusing meaning and relevance into the customs and traditions of the Jewish life cycle.
Angels, Blessings, and Evil Eyes
What is the evil eye? How does it work? Are we accompanied by guardian angels? Do they have wings? Join us as we enter the hidden world of the occult and investigate the fascinating interaction between matter and spirit.
Foods and Feasts
Ever wondered what it is about Jews and food? What makes food kosher? Why is pork considered the quintessential non-kosher chow? With tasty surprises along the way, we’ll learn a thing or two about Jewish diet in this mouth-watering, eye-opening session.
It’s All Hebrew to Me
From abracadabra to kippa and Yom Kippur, this lesson dives beyond semantics into the depths of Hebrew etymology. We’ll uncover insights into seemingly arbitrary Hebrew names, and discover words that offer perspective into the heart of key Jewish concepts.
Myths, Misconceptions, and Urban Legends
Sometimes the truth can be stranger than fiction. Do Jews believe in Satan? Can a Jew convert out of the faith? Peering into a world of untold mystery, we’ll explore common Jewish myths rooted in non-Jewish beliefs, everything from the bizarre to the downright outrageous.
