Some Journal News

The Beth Din of America, established by the Rabbinical Council of America, recently began publishing a blog entitled "Jewishprudence: Thoughts on Jewish Law and Beth Din Jurisprudence". The most recent posting is - How Does a Beit Din Acquire Jurisdiction to Hear a Case?

Tradition: A Journal of Orthodox Jewish Thought has been published by the Rabbinical Council of America since the 50's. They recently hired a new editor and unveiled a new website and design. Our shul is proud to be counted among the Tradition Fellows who support the efforts of this journal.


 

Tisha b'Av Podcast

Check out this excellent podcast about Tisha b'Av from Rabbi Meir Soloveichik, director of the Zahava and Moshael Straus Center for Torah and Western Thought at Yeshiva University. I highly recommend the entire podcast series.

Sacred Time Ep 12: Tisha b'Av - The Miracle of Jewish Memory: Today, the Jewish state is restored and Jerusalem is in our hands. Why do we still mourn ancient Jerusalem's destruction when we have so much to celebrate?
