The one time I did get to go to a synagogue was when a friend of mine had his bar mitzvah. The 1915 outfield of Ty Cobb, Sam Crawford, and Bobby Veach is considered the greatest ever. Whenever possible, it is best to err on the side of caution.
The summer is winding down, the school year is gearing up, and you want to throw a party. Lucky for you, September is chock-full of reasons why you should invite people over.
In time Msztp (they never give their real name) forgot too but everyone once in a while at that time of year he felt as though he had lost something. The problem was he never remembered what.
So our first reading tonight recalls God’s commands to Moses before the Israelites observed their first Passover, the one done literally on the verge of flight from their slavery in Egypt. “The first month of the year” does not refer to the start of the Jewish calendar year; as is well known, Rosh Hashanah occurs in the fall. But Passover, in the middle of Nisan, begins the Jewish liturgical year. Their seder is a “re-presentation” of all that happened to them; they are to regard themselves as being themselves in Egypt, about to be liberated from physical slavery, ready to flee as soon as they receive the word.
If you prefer to buy from Israel, you can find a number of online dealers. You can also find shofars at your local Judaica dealer, but prices are often marked up significantly.
The U.S. should have nothing to do with the Iraq War. Our government knows nothing about the internal functioning of their culture and Islam as a way of life and being is unfathomable to Christian Americans. No matter who you put into power as president in Iraq today, it will always be contested because the leader will always be biased towards their sect (Sunni or Shiite) and one or the other will always end up being discriminated.
Marv Owen did not drive in 100 runs like his counterparts, but proved just as tough as Rogell. Despite batting .069 in the World Series, he fought the intimidating Joe Medwick in Game 7. Medwick slid hard into Owen at third precipitating the brawl. Both players remained in the game until Commissioner Landis removed Medwick to protect him from Tiger fans. For the season, Owen hit .317 with eight home runs and 96 RBI.
By the time we threw an entire loaf my parents and sisters were all crying in each other’s arms. We walked back in silence. In my thoughts were imagining a ram’s horn and ultimate repentance to G-d for obeying. Though I don’t wonder when my ram will show up in a thicket, I am thankful for all of the times that a ram has helped me go on with my life in peace.
