This is where I hope we can exchange important information and thoughts regarding minhag, Jewish thought and German Jewish history. These are all topics that I enjoy and have had some exposure to.
There are some excellent sites in the Frum blogosphere that handle these subjects with very capable academic authorship. I don’t have much to offer over them. I do have, though, a following of devotees that are looking for information and thought provoking topics presented in a space that shall remain safe from the broader community of bloggers and trolls – where respectful dialogue will be encouraged and the tone will be kept positive.
I especially do not open the blog to “Rabbonim Bashing”. For reasons I think are obvious, but also because I want this to be a welcoming safe place to spend time and not wind up in cyber mud. (My thoughts on cyber-lashon hara here.)
Towards this ideal, I hope to avoid the real hot-button issues. We will leave those to the big guys. (We will talk about TIDE though, that is not supposed to be a “hot-button” issue….)
There are places online to find discussion of Minhag as well as Hirschian thought. This blog will have a unique angle born out of the members and friends of the Kehilla itself.
There will be no set order of rules regarding how words are transliterated, which words are capitalized, and when I will assume the reader knows Hebrew well and when I don’t. Spelling and grammar will be predictably off too. Accuracy and attention to details will be weak. But the content will be interesting…at least to a select few. Thanks for reading.
