Finding Spiritual Oneness in Interfaith Relationships

Hanukkah

Hanukkah Dreidle

Much more than the "Jewish alternative" to Christmas, Hanukkah, which means "dedication", recalls a dark time in the history of our Jewish people, and our miraculous deliverance from that darkness. This eight-day holiday commemorates the victory of the Maccabees over the army of Antiochus Epiphanes, a time when God preserved and protected his people through the heroic act of a small band of Jewish guerilla fighters.

Death and Mourning

Jewish Funeral

Death is an ugly intruder that tears the soul and body asunder. Saturated as our society is with violence and images of death on television, it is surprising how most people exclude the subject from conversation. People keep their thoughts and fears about death to themselves, but eventually it will lay claim to each of us and to those we love.

Bar Mitzvah

Bar Mitzvah

In the Jewish religion, bar mitzvah—"son of the commandment"—refers to a boy who has reached 13 years of age. At this time, he is considered a man in the sense of being responsible to take on the religious obligations of Jewish life. The term bar mitzvah is also commonly used for the ceremony itself, the rite of passage during which the young man reads in Hebrew the portion of the Torah (five books of Moses) prescribed for that week and chants the Haftarah (corresponding portion from the Prophets for that week).

Bris

A Bris is a Jewish Ceremony where an 8 day old boy is circumcized.

A bris is the ceremony of circumcision for Jewish boys when they are eight days old. The origins take us to the 12th and 15th chapters of the biblical book of Genesis. God made unconditional promises to Abraham that his descendants would be more numerous than the stars in the sky; that through his descendants all the nations would be blessed; that Abraham's people would be given a great land to occupy and that all who blessed them would in turn be blessed.
