I was excited to be heading to the West Coast to visit my older brother Steve. My dad had returned to New York with the good news that Steve had found a place with a nice Jewish landlady who would “keep an eye on him.”
Gedalia was a kid (baby goat) with no future—no future, that is, other than being passed on a platter from one guest to the next at the Passover seder of Yossel and Shayna Rabinovitch.

A minor Jewish holiday, Tu B’Shvat falls on the 15th day of the Hebrew month Shvat (usually coinciding with the middle of winter) and is sometimes considered in modern times to be Israel’s Arbor Day.

The Siddur is the Jewish prayer book. Many prayers of our Siddur are as old as Solomon’s Temple. The Psalms were the “prayer book” of Israel in the days of the kings and the prophets. The Sh’ma was taught to Israel by Moses himself. However, it was only after the Exile that the prayer service […]

We pledge our commitment […]

What is Camp Gilgal and why should I send my child there? Camp Gilgal was established by Jews for Jesus in 1991 to provide a unique opportunity for children of Jewish believers (even where only one parent is Jewish) to learn about their Messiah and heritage with other children with a similar background. Most children […]
