Different etiquette around Jewish men?

1.  AoM members should know that gentlemen remove their hats in a lady's presence and inside.  Observant Jewish men, of course, keep their yarmulkot on.  Should this tradition give non-observant…Continue

Just a quick comment, happy to see this board here, and the first thing it made me think of was Sen. Franken's (whom I adore) comment about school prayer being ok as long as it was the Shema. I'm not Jewish but I like seeing the diversity here.

Actually, all I need today is this:
The blessings when Yom Kippur that Falls on Shabbat
Bo-ruch a-toh Ado-noi E-lo-hei-nu me-lech ho-olom a-sher ki-de-sha-nu be-mitz-vo-sov ve-tzi-vo-nu le-had-lik ner shel Sha-bos v'shel Yom Ha-kipurim.

Translation: Blessed are you, L-rd our G-d, King of the universe, who has sanctified us with His commandments, and has commanded us to kindle the light of the Sabbath and of the Day of Atonement.

The Shehecheyonu blessing:

Bo-ruch a-toh Ado-noi E-lo-hei-nu me-lech ho-olom she-he-che-ya-nu vi-kee-yi-ma-nu vi-hi-gee-an-u liz-man ha-zeh.

Translation: Blessed are you, L-rd our G-d, King of the universe, who has kept us alive and sustained us and let us reach this time.

Leshana tova tekatev v'techatem

I'm trying to get to High Holy Days services with Jews for Jesus; I've never been to High Holy Day services - Messianic or otherwise. Turns out, I'll be fasting for catholic reasons on Yom Kippur.

And the family had a bit of a scare last night when my baby sister told us she'd wished her English teacher a happy Yom Kippur last year and offered her food. Thankfully, she was actually talking about Purim.

Happy to be here, but please don't call me "manly."

Should freedom of speech apply absolutely to the internet?

It goes without saying that freedom of speech as mentioned in the 1st Amendment was drafted long before anyone could have envisioned the internet.Interestingly many states do have their own local laws regulating speech (ex. obscenity) which seem bypassed by internet access.So should freedom of speech as a right be applied unequivocally to anything any everything accessible on the internet; the internet is the closest to anarchism that one can really get so there's no further-left one could go…See More

The Great Debate

"Iron sharpens iron." A place for men to impact each other by debate and exchange of ideas. This is a group where no ideas are off limits. If your motto is, "I never talk about politics or religion," this group is probably not for you. A "gym" for thinkers.See More
