    Ignoring the strict guidance from rabbinic and medical leadership, several members of Young Israel of Deerfield Beach held a "secret" minyan - and the response has been swift and fierce. Uri and Rivky ask, were the consequences appropriate? How should we treat people who go rogue?

    Many of us look around and are driven to despair. But this week, Uri and Rivky speak to Rabbi Dr. Gil Perl, head of school at the Kohelet Yeshiva, about how Kohelet has pivoted in the last few weeks, fabricating special face shields for local Philadelphia medical professionals who are on the front lines battling COVID-19. Rabbi Perl tells us how this project came about, why he sees this as fitting perfectly into the educational model of Kohelet, and how he sees the lessons going forward into a post-corona age, whenever that may be.

Daniel talks about how the recent YCT brouhaha upended his life, changed the way he thought, and has affected him in the year since.

  • 101. Creating New Jewish Rituals with Rabbi Ben Greenfield

    101. Creating New Jewish Rituals with Rabbi Ben Greenfield

    24/02/2020 Duración: 51min

    This week, Uri and Rivky interview special guest Rabbi Ben Greenfield. Over the last few years, Ben has created and coordinated hundreds of Jewish communal events, including a Yom Hashoah levaya, a Yom "Ki"Purim celebration, Shavuot seders, and Hanukkah symposiums. We talk about what some of these rituals look like and we ask, what is this? What does it mean about us that we are creating new ritual? Is it even Orthodox to do things like this?? They also discuss what it means to be a rabbinic leader today, in the age of social media and controversy. To speak more with Ben about these rituals, including a copy of his Shavuot haggadah, email him: ben@greenpointshul.org

    100. Lomir Redn Tachlis! (Let's Talk Tachlis!) with Arun Viswanath

    12/02/2020 Duración: 36min

    This week, on our very special 100th episode, Uri and Rivky interviewed Arun Viswanath, who recently translated and published the Yiddish translation of Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone (ALREADY SOLD OUT!!). Arun, Uri, and Rivky discuss the new book and ask, what is Yiddish and why is it important? Why shouldn’t we let it die? How is Yiddish similar, or different, to other religious cultural aspects? And, can Yiddish be separated from Judaism? (P.S. Recognize the dulcet tones on that Yiddish song? Hi Uri!)

  • 99. Kobes Legacy

    99. Kobe's Legacy

    05/02/2020 Duración: 30min

    Kobe Bryant, basketball legend, died last week at the age of 41 in a sudden accident. Immediately, as often seems to happen, people flocked to social media, some posting about the amazing player and person he was, and others reminding us that he is still accused of rape and assault. And, of course, legacies are complicated. How does this Kobe situation, from 15 years ago, relate to “cancel culture” - does it? How “bad” does accusations about a person have to be, to be a part of their legacy? How do we determine who gets to be “forgiven” - does the accuser make that decision? Do we as society?

  • 98. Should We Mix Politics and Religion?

    98. Should We Mix Politics and Religion?

    29/01/2020 Duración: 35min

    This week, Uri and Rivky discuss two topics about the mixing (or lack thereof) of religion and politics. In Israel, Rav Yoel Bin Nun denounced religious Zionist politics parties, and argued that religious leadership in the Knesset has been an epic failure. In America, Espizona vs. Montana is just another event in the saga of the separation of church and state. Uri and Rivky ask, is there room for the mixing of religion and politics? What place, if any, should religion have in the public sphere, and how does our identity as religious Jews affect our perspective on this issue?

    97. What Is A Secular Synagogue?

    14/01/2020 Duración: 31min

    This week, Uri and Rivky discuss a recent Tablet article: “Secular Synagogues Take Root in Israel.” (Thanks to astute Tach-head Adi for the tip!) As the article documented, there is a recent rise of non-observant Israelis looking for deeper spiritual connection to Judaism, and they're finding it in new ways, like through secular synagogues. But is a secular synagogue an oxymoron? Is this movement inspiring, or sacrilegious, or both? And could/should such a movement exist here in the United States?

    96. Was the Jewish Unity March Inclusive Enough?

    09/01/2020 Duración: 29min

    This week, Uri and Rivky speak about the recent march against antisemitism, where over 10,000 marched from Lower Manhattan to Brooklyn to protest the recent antisemitic incidents. Many have mentioned the less-then-huge participation of Hasidic and Haredi groups. Uri and Rivky ask, when is it appropriate to focus on, or let go of, different factions within a larger community? How do we foster love, community, and unity when some groups reject others?

    This week, instead of hearing from Uri and Rivky, we hear from you: the Tach-Heads! You spoke about who you tend to agree with, the issues from this past year that you thought were the most important, the things you want us to discuss in the future, and the people you want us to interview.

  • 94. Trumps Executive Order: Good For The Jews?

    94. Trump's Executive Order: Good For The Jews?

    26/12/2019 Duración: 38min

    In the last few weeks, antisemitism has been back in the news. (Did it ever leave?) President Trump released his executive order on combating antisemitism, and, in that same week, Jews were gunned down in a kosher grocery store in Jersey City, an unprecedented act that shook many of us to our core. Uri and Rivky ask, what about the executive order was so controversial? And, what happened in Jersey City? Is there a larger meaning to it all? And, ultimately, is there any connection we can draw between these two events?

    92. Meaningful Musar or Wrongful Rebuke?

    04/12/2019 Duración: 37min

    This week Rivky and Uri talk about some feedback from last week's episode, and Uri recounts the momentous experience of finally hearing Phish play Avinu Malkenu this past Sunday.   This week's main topic is a discussion about a recent article written by Rabbi Steven Pruzansky.  The article is entitled "The First Modern Orthodox Jew: Two Models".  Rabbi Pruzansky contrasts Avraham and Lot, and uses them as models for two ways Orthodox Jews can approach the secular world, specifically the world of secular college.  Rivky and Uri share their feelings about the article.  Is it accurate?  Is it too harsh?  Not harsh enough?  And what do we think in general about this type of approach to Jewish life?
