The practice[ edit ] In Orthodox Jewish circles, dating is limited to the search for a marriage partner. Both sides usually the singles themselves, parents, close relatives or friends of the persons involved make inquiries about the prospective partner, e. A shidduch often begins with a recommendation from family members, friends or others who see matchmaking as a mitzvah , or commandment. Some engage in it as a profession and charge a fee for their services. Usually a professional matchmaker is called a shadchan , but anyone who makes a shidduch is considered the shadchan for it. After the match has been proposed, the prospective partners meet a number of times to gain a sense of whether they are right for one another. The number of dates prior to announcing an engagement may vary by community. In some, the dating continues several months. In stricter communities, the couple may decide a few days after originally meeting with each other.

On the one hand they live like in the middle ages in their private family and community life. You might even confuse a Hasidic Orthodox Jew with an Amish person. On the other they adapt and mix in to the general society.

And that male world is not a fun place to be.

Your wedding , plain and simple. The photos, the setting, the dogs, the look in your faces: As native Texan gays, we hope our day comes for true marriage, not just a ceremony. My favorite moment of Dishness? It gets to me every time I read it — the peculiarities that define us all pets too , the process of moving on but not forgetting , and everything that comes with sharing your life with another being.

Another reader gets close to home: My mind immediately jumped to the moment you got your green card. You explained exactly just what and how much the symbolic welcoming to the country meant to you. Another simply sends this video, which any true Dishhead will recognize by its date — June 19, So many moments with the Dish brought me joy, tears, enlightenment and shared frustration, but what stands out the most was the Green Revolution coverage.

It was the moment when Patrick and Chris and I first truly bonded as a team. Yeah, I set up a script to take screenshots at intervals throughout the interview process.

The New Techniques Having failed in the past, some fundamentalist Christians are armed with a new arsenal of deceptive techniques to convert Jews. You will never see a cross or an altar; there is an Aaron Hakodesh holy ark with a star of David adorning its velvet cover, and a Bimah stage for prayer services in the center of the sanctuary. The majority of the men who worship here wear kipot, and their tzitzit hang down the sides of their pants. This congregation’s rabbi, among many other functions, reads from the Torah and makes Kiddush every Shabbat.

Most of the women are modestly dressed. Joyous shouts of “Shabbat Shalom” and “Baruch Hashem” can be heard as young couples greet each other. The sanctuary pulsates to a modern Israeli musical beat. If this sounds like a description of a traditional Jewish house of worship, think again. The above is actually a description of any one of the hundreds of Messianic “synagogues” which flourish throughout the world. Fundamentalist Christian churches use traditional Jewish symbols to lure vulnerable Jews.

Some of these laws are directed only to men or to women, some only to the ancient priestly groups, the Kohanim and Leviyim members of the tribe of Levi , some only to farmers within the Land of Israel.

Many laws were only applicable when the Temple in Jerusalem existed, and only of these commandments are still applicable today. These oral traditions were transmitted by the Pharisee school of thought of ancient Judaism, and were later recorded in written form and expanded upon by the rabbis. The Oral law is the oral tradition as relayed by God to Moses and from him, transmitted and taught to the sages rabbinic leaders of each subsequent generation.

For centuries, the Torah appeared only as a written text transmitted in parallel with the oral tradition. Fearing that the oral teachings might be forgotten, Rabbi Judah haNasi undertook the mission of consolidating the various opinions into one body of law which became known as the Mishnah.

Shares Dear Jew in the City, With all the horrific shootings going on recently, it got me thinking about racism in the Jewish world. Do Orthodox Jews who are racist have sources to back up their hate? There is no Torah basis to justify hatred based on race. Throughout Tanach the Jewish Bible , people fight about all sorts of things — battles over land, over theology, over the crown, over women.

There are, however, some things that people may use to justify as supporting a racist agenda.

One part of us must be able to let go, to release, to give to another; and one part must be able to make oneself open, to receive, to accept and nurture what has been given.

I was the one who adamantly declared that I would never marry out. I was so connected to my Jewish identity that my betrayal of it was not even statistically probable. Some of my friends began dating non-Jews. I stopped socializing with them in silent protest, after a more outspoken effort had failed. I self-righteously concluded that we had nothing in common, since they were prepared to give their Jewish identity the backseat. In the Talmud, Rabbi Hillel warns us that we should be careful not to judge another person until we have stood in their place.

And I was going places. It was an inspiring night full of memories and promise for the future. As we gathered round looking at photos, I pretended not to notice the attractive guy sitting next to me. He just wants to meet you. Attractive had inquired after me.

On the morning of September 21st Phil Giraldi was fired over the phone by The American Conservative , where he had been a regular contributor for fourteen years. Buchanan was vilified and denounced as an anti-Semite by many of the same people who are now similarly attacking Giraldi. Jewish groups and deep pocket individual donors not only control the politicians, they own and run the media and entertainment industries, meaning that no one will hear about or from the offending party ever again.

Most recently, some pundits, including myself, have been warning of an impending war with Iran. To be sure, the urging to strike Iran comes from many quarters, to include generals in the Administration who always think first in terms of settling problems through force, from a Saudi government obsessed with fear over Iranian hegemony, and, of course, from Israel itself. But what makes the war engine run is provided by American Jews who have taken upon themselves the onerous task of starting a war with a country that does not conceivably threaten the United States.

They have been very successful at faking the Iranian threat, so much so that nearly all Republican and most Democratic congressmen as well as much of the media seem to be convinced that Iran needs to be dealt with firmly, most definitely by using the U.
