In 1997-98 (only four years after the 3rd of Tammuz) in the hight of the Messianic movement,  I went to Yeshiva in Morristown, New Jersey.

Morristown then was  known as a “anti” Yeshiva, yet at the time, 85% of the students there were Messianic and Yechi was said and printed at every opportunity given and most of the students displayed Yechi Kippas. (These were the days before the yellow flag, but I’m sure had there been flags back then there would be one hanging from every window, making the building look yellow).

Democracy In My Shul

August 23, 2012

From the whoisshmira@gmail in-box

OPINION:

In my Shul we have total Democracy, if you don’t like the rules you are FREE to leave!

In my Shul one individual collects the funds, if you don’t like it or don’t trust him, since it’s a total Democracy you have the right to stop  giving him  money and you have the democratic right to leave the Shul.

With this Democracy our Shul keeps growing and things are peaceful and will g-d willing stay that way.

Quote Of The Day: Understanding Bad People

August 9, 2012

For example, my friends, I know how you think of yourselves. You’re honest.  You’re ethically attentive.  I mean, nobody’s perfect, but you try to do your best.  You don’t purposely screw people.  You don’t lie on purpose for your own aggrandizement and gain.  And therefore it’s really hard to relate to people that do.  Because you wonder: Where is their conscience? When you’re not unethical and when you care about integrity and when honesty and these kinds of virtues matter to you, you are understandably (sometimes inexplicably) befuddled in dealing with people who don’t have any of those concerns.

Who aren’t honest.

Who aren’t ethical.

Who don’t have a conscience.

Who are not concerned with virtue.

So understanding those people, sometimes, is a waste of time.  Sometimes it doesn’t matter once you do figure it out….
