A Jewish Thought

In this day and age, when everyone wants to put labels on people and things, I try to avoid them. I am asked by numerous people if I am Orthodox, Conservative or Reform. I hate the question as we are so busy labeling we sometimes forget that we need to get along, all of us, regardless of the branch.

I tell people, when asked this question, “I am an eclectic mix of my surroundings”. My Dad was a reform Rabbi and my Mom published many children’s religious school books with a ‘reform’ slant. I want to a conservative Hebrew school and when I went to college and was looking for a ‘Shabbos’ environment, it was the orthodox community that was most welcoming.

I have a little bit of everything in me and am appreciative of all branches of Judaism. I also have been involved with Jewish education. While I have had various positions over the years, at the current time, I am teaching in the computer lab of a religious school, which is a lot of fun. I also do some tutoring and have always tried to show people just how much the religion has to offer and how new and exciting it is.

Listening to sermons, reading commentary and having my own thoughts about readings and other issues facing the Jewish community, I am looking forward to voicing my thought and opinions about something I hold near and dear.

I wonder if you ever taught Jewish history through music and am curious if there was a curriculum that you followed.
