Joseph Telushkin

Rabbis, Thank Your Teachers! And Read Telushkin

Me, I’m a simple Yid. A rabbinical school dropout, even: JTS ’99-’00.

I don’t have the text skills of my classmates who finished the program. I don’t pray as fluently as I would like. But I am not entirely without resources, and one of my favorites is Rabbi Joseph Telushkin’s "The Book of Jewish Values: A Day-By-Day Guide to Ethical Living."

Flying On Shabbat Vs. Chillul Hashem

What would you do if you were a Shabbat observer on a delayed flight late Friday afternoon and it became increasingly unlikley you'd get to your destination before sundown? Ask to get off the plane, or stick it out and hope for the best?

Maybe you shouldn't have been on the flight in the first place.
