Simchas Torah: The
endless beginning

By Rabbi Nathan Lopes Cardozo

There is a most remarkable tradition that takes place on the festival of Simchas Torah. Instead of being satisfied with this latest reading of the Torah, Jews conclude that they really did not read it well enough and that there is a need to read it once more.

When one considers that this process of re-reading has already gone on for thousands of years and that there are no indications it will end in the future, one wonders when Jews will ever complete their reading of the Torah.

The more inventively you try to ''explain'' the Islamist psychosis as a rational phenomenon to be accommodated, the more you risk sounding just as nutty as them
By Mark Steyn

The Islamists want to kill all the Jews. What about if we split the difference and just kill half of 'em? They want to behead all the sodomites. What about if we offered, say, 40 percent?

In friendship --- and gratitude,
