  • Jewish Calendar Wars

    Posted By Mike Rosenthal on April 15, 2010 | Leave a Comment

    How do they know when Jewish Holidays are supposed to take place? Simple. There’s a calendar. But where did it come from? Finding it in the Bible is going to be a bit difficult, since the Torah doesn’t exactly specify how the Jewish calendar should be constructed, or on what it should be based. There are generally two options – the sun, or the moon. The Gregorian calendar is based on the sun. The Islamic calendar, the moon. As the Jewish people are far more ancient than both the Christian and Muslim civilizations, the story surrounding their calendar is a bit more complicated.

  • Matzah, Mitzvah or Accident?

    Posted By Mike Rosenthal on March 23, 2010 | Leave a Comment

    If we look into Biblical Jewish history a bit deeper than we might otherwise venture to attempt, the issue of matzah on the Passover holiday gets way too fuzzy for comfort. That’s the way it is with Jewish holidays and the Torah in general. Things look clear, and when you’re in Hebrew school or Jewish day school or wherever it is that you learn your everyday Jewish whatnots, the story is told to you straight out and you can follow the plotline. The Jewish people were enslaved, God struck the Egyptians down with 10 plagues, the Jewish people went free, they didn’t have time for their bread to rise, hence matzah, the Red Sea splits, the Jews cross, the Egyptians drown, and the Jews live happily ever after minus 2 exiles, pogroms, Crusades, expulsions, mass Genocides etc., but more or less everything’s cool.
