David B. Edelson
Creating a Holy Community (Parashat Acharaei Mot–K’doshim)

David B. Edelson  |  April 19, 2013

“God commands all of the Israelites to come together as a holy community, known in Hebrew as Kehillah Kedoshah. Given that we are on a Central board mission to Israel, I think it makes sense for all of us to reflect on the meaning and importance of Kehillah Kedoshah in several contexts.“

Michael Pollan
On Food Rules, Leviticus, and Barbecue (Shofar Shabbat)

Michael Pollan  |  April 12, 2013

“These rules continue to matter, to hold value, simply because they link us to our past and help reinforce our cultural identity, even in the breach. Tradition sometimes deserves respect even when it has diverged from rationality, narrowly considered.”

Peter J. Rubinstein
