Over dinner tonight I read part of the latest issue of The Forward and I found myself agreeing with two brief yet well-written editorials:
The Gift of the Law on what to think about this Shavuot.
The Same War on the wars in Iraq and Chechnya.
You will need to make a free online subscription to the Forward to read the artilces, but I believe it is well worthwhile.
Go and Study!
Go and Grow!
