Year: 2022

Taking Tuesday

What is the inadvertent message of Giving Tuesday, Mothers’ Day, Veterans’ Day and all the myriad other “Days” that are scattered throughout the year? Think about it. We owe honor to our parents and veterans every day of the year. We should feel the obligation to give to charity every single time we receive or...

IVF or Fostering

I really would love your advice and the Jewish perspective on this issue. I am a 46 year old woman. I got married late in life – and have been happily married for 8 years. However, no children have come along and my husband and I are very disappointed. We did get medical checks and...

A Proverbs 31 Woman

I am very curious about Proverbs 31. In the church world there are many teachings about what the “Proverbs 31” women is and isn’t. I heard once that it is a blessing that a husband would speak over his new bride. To those who believe she is an example of who we are to be...

Grumpy Old Men

Both Presidents Biden and Trump are giving old age a bad name. One is frequently befuddled while the other is increasingly cantankerous. It might be funny were it a certain 1993 Walter Matthau and Jack Lemmon movie, but in real life it is just tragic. Aside from the national and international consequences, both men harm...

Fewer Mothers, Fewer Children

The polling booths have closed for the midterm elections in the United States. Some seats changed hands, others stayed as they were, and some races are yet to be called. Whatever the results, the fact is that the true battleground for the future of America lies not in politics but in the culture. In the...

Holy Water

“It’s not FAIR!” screamed the toddler having a temper tantrum. Tough on his mother, to be sure, but when an adult political leader uses the same word which is not only without definition but also without meaning, the consequences can be far more serious. Another oft-used word whose definition and meaning is also obscure is...

Women Not Wearing Pants

I would like to get your take on Deuteronomy 22:5, where the bible states for a woman not to wear men’s clothing and a man should not wear women’s clothing. The church I attend states that women should not wear pants, seeing that it is men’s apparel, and vice versa. We teach that women should...
