This blog is my vehicle to share with the world materials, ideas, and insights relating to Tora. I believe that God's gift to humanity -- Tora, and the Jewish People -- must be presented in a way that is relevant to today's audience. The content is timeless; it is the packaging that needs adapting. As our Rabbis said: "Im Req Hu -- Mikkem Hu!" If the Tora is void of meaning, that is YOUR problem (as presenters). Not the Tora's.
With this blog, I intend to share a Tora that I believe is relevant to today more than ever.
At the same time, the quintessential ingredient for sane Judaism is a natural Jewish identity. A Jew should feel that Jewish history is the story of his or her family; that Jewish Law are regulations of members in his or her club; and that each and every Jew is a distant cousin (both present, past as well as future). This is why, in this blog, the other objective is to be as faithful as possible to Jewish tradition. For instance, this blog will try to facilitate the mastering and learning of traditional Jewish sources.
I hope this blog is helpful for those who are seeking what I am claiming to offer.
