Dan ‘Mobius’ Sieradski gives a really good speech at the UJC GA. Read it:
Enabling the Next Big Jewish Idea | Jewcy.com
The question is, of course, is anyone listening, and will they do something about it?
Actually, the question is, can they afford not to?

A couple weeks ago bigmouth Ann Coulter let me know how much she loves Jews by wishing we’d convert and thus be ‘perfected.” Yeah. And she did it on Cable TV no less in an interview with Donny Deutsch.
So much for loving our friends on the Christian right. They, like we Jews, love Israel, [...]
It’s no secret that I wasn’t born Jewish. Despite what the books said about not talking about conversion on the internet, I blogged my whole conversion. I’ve written about it here, on Shebrew, and in PresenTense Magazine.
In fact my last article in PresenTense was about the growing Jew By Choice Blogosphere and what a relief [...]
In May I reviewed the new JUF site and the blog that Aaron Cohen is writing. The good news? The JUF blog now accepts comments… however the comments are disappearing into a moderation queue without warning the commenter. I think. I left a comment and it disappeared, but was not posted.
Kudos for adding comments! A step [...]
L’Shana Tova & Shabbat Shalom
The Torah predicts space travel! “Even if your exiles are at the end of the heavens, the Lord, your God, will gather you from there, and He will take you from there.” – Deut. 30:4 SHABBAT SHALOM! – a & s
When a gangstuh talks about, “going Old Testament on his ass,” she probably means something like the stuff in Parshat Ki Tavo. As Moses final speech continues, he follows through with his theme of, “obey and be happy, disobey and suffer BIG TIME!” The threats in this parsha makes Guantanamo seem like Club Med. It [...]
Judges! We are instructed to appoint wise and honorable judges to administer justice. (Samson is the most famous exception to that rule.) They are to judge blindly and be unbribable. Crimes are to be thoroughly investigated and convictions require at least two witnesses.We are again instructed to commit ethnic cleansing [...]
Word from the National Havurah Institute is that Chicago is the next place for things to blossom for indie minyans.
Uh, its not like it hasn’t already been happening or there’s a lack of effort… I mean we just had 85 people at our Shabbat at the Lake last month. And there’s new stuff happening [...]
Moses’ last rant continues… He divides Israel in two, placing six tribes on mount Gerizim and six on mount Ebal. Then he harangues them with blessings, curses and laws of kosher, including the famed “Do not boil the kid in its mother’s milk.” This week’s comic focuses on yet another of the warnings [...]
It’s Sesame Street in Canaan! Blue skies, rolling hills, brooks, fountains – Oy! All we have to do is expel the people who live there and all good gifts will be handed to us. Did I hear somebody say, “We’ll be welcomed as liberators?” This parsha also warns us that YHWH’s affection for us arises [...]
Moses continues his trip down memory lane. He remembers some of Judaism’s big hits, including the Ten Commandments and the Shema. He also continues tutoring his younger charges in the finer points of ethnic cleansing; he tells them that they’ll enjoy homes they did not build and vineyards they did not plant. The portion ends [...]
