|Comment||Thanks Rabbi! That is a good answer. So I assume by saying that you do not speak for all Jews, that there are ones out there who do feel that way. I'm not a big fan of those people. Just like I am not a fan of people who say that I am definitely going to Hell because I do NOT accept Jesus as my lord and savior. I do not believe ANYONE is better than me or going to Hell. I do believe in common sense. There will NEVER be peace among ALL of us as long as FOOLISH religious views are present in the world. How do I get those people to build a spaceship and kindly leave? No need to respond, you know what I mean.|
Write to me with questions about Jewish customs and law, history, philosophy and tradition for answers from a Conservative perspective or conversion. I am a graduate of The Jewish Theological Seminary and a member of the Conservative Rabbinical Assembly. Having served in congregational pulpits since 1970, I now am President of the Foundation For Family Education, Inc. a non-profit educational endeavor. I established it to create new formats of hands-on programs and provide free educational downloads at www.jewishfreeware.org. In addition to general informational questions I welcome your questions about programs for social action, outreach to dual-faith families, inter-faith clergy projects, healing services, education for conversion, adult education for the congregation and the community. If you have questions about Informal and Formal Education I am ready to share my extensive experience with Youth Activities, Camping and Religious School/Hebrew High School on a congregational, community and national/international level.
I have served on the National Youth Commission for more than 25 years and serve on the Boards of the Conservative Zionist movement MERCAZ and the World Council of Synagogues. I have always dual-families and taught candidates for conversion with a great sense of fulfillment. I am very proud of 25 years on the Jewish camping staff of Camps Ramah. My greatest source of pride is my family! Ask me about them, please!:-)
