In Judaism, there are quite a lot of religious items which are considered to be of great importance. Every Jew makes use of various types of religious items on a daily basis in order to follow the exact commandments of God.

One such item which is of much importance in Judaism is the shofar.
While Greenberg missed one game, on Yom Kippur, the rest of the infield played in all 154. Second baseman Charlie Gehringer enjoyed his best season to date. He led the league in runs (134) and hits (214) while finishing second in batting (.356), doubles (50) and on base percentage (.450). He also knocked in 127 runs. The second baseman walked 99 times and only struck out on 25 occasions. Gehringer finished second in the MVP voting to his manager, Mickey Cochrane.

I’ve dated women who chanted every morning when they got up and prayed to Buddha. I’ve dated women who go to church. Have I gone with them? No. Have I respected them and their belief system? Absolutely!
Rabbi Dan Moskovitz and Jason Mesches wrote the lyrics for “Call Your Zeyde”. Temple Judea clergy and staff make you smile as you watch their antics on this inspiring parody of “Call Me Maybe”.
