Off to see Harry Potter and the Kos Shel Brocha with the mini-mes. Be back later with my full review.
Meantime, join the debate taking place on the post immidiately beneath this one.
My two cents: Judaism ebbs and flows, like everything else. Though elements of it are inevitable (ie: God-made), most of it is contingent (ie: Man-made). Therefore, it misses the point to talk about what "Judaism" says, when the "Jews" themselves are doing their own thing. We live in the world of men (ie: Jews) not thwe world of ideas (ie: Judaism.)
See you soon...
