    My family davened in Kol Israel from 1950-1971.It was a wonderful place to grow up in. The changing neighborhood finally forced our move. We stayed as long as we could for the shul.Its great that it is coming back. I hope that the yurtizt bulbs are turned on at the appropriate time. Would someone up date me on the shul.

    This blurb about tattoos demonstrates how there is a huge generational divide as well as how misguided traditions start out in the first place. Believe it or not, traditions although "felt" to have a life anchoring effect, are actually cultural markers of identity. Tattoos in particular were invented coincidentally for the very same reason. To Identify a 'Group". It is my personal hope that we will advance to a future where grouping and exclusivity will dissolve into harmony among us all. Go hang out at a middle school some time and check out what kind of harm (selective blindness, false pride, bullying, pecking orders, false safety) these clicks cause to our children. If you wanna make a tribe....then make a tribe and God bless those who can pull this feat off today. Our structure/humanity/laws make this sort of harmonious grouping extremely difficult....so that adaption must be made which makes arguing over tattoos and what was accepted 500 years ago just plain silly.

    Want to keep driving Jews away from the faith - insist on dull, interminable seders and other rituals.

    30 minutes is plenty.

    the downfall of conservative is due to the women's movement infiltrating up the reform.
