Breaking bread together

Representatives of eight faiths celebrate diversity

LocalPublished: 08 April 2011

Sikhs wore turbans. Muslim women wore headscarves. Jews wore yarmulkes. Some Christians wore clerical collars.

Bergen County’s diverse religious groups were on display Sunday as the Interfaith Brotherhood/Sisterhood Committee of Bergen County celebrated its 25th anniversary with a luncheon that drew 350 people to the Teaneck Marriott at Glenpointe.

Many other communities have interfaith councils, said Joy Kurland, executive director of the Jewish Community Relations Council of the UJA Federation of Northern New Jersey, as she received an award for her efforts for the interfaith committee. But, she added, “not one other community I know of has representatives of eight different faith communities.”

Cover Story Published: 01 April 2011

Rabbi Moshe Goldsmith was in synagogue last month when he saw, he said on Tuesday, “three times, a white light” surrounding Udi Fogel, who was killed, along with four family members, the next day.

“Martyrs of Israel, those who give their lives for Israel, have the highest place in heaven,” Goldsmith said.

The mayor of Itamar, where the Fogels were murdered, shared this and other details about the west bank settlement with the eighth-grade class at The Moriah School in Englewood. He also spoke at several other area schools, including Torah Academy of Bergen County and Ma’ayanot Yeshiva for Girls, both in Teaneck.

Rabbis’ forum: Patrilineal dispute no bar to civility

LocalPublished: 01 April 2011

Even the most contentious problems of defining Jewish status can be dealt with without rancor, a panel of rabbis from across the streams agreed.

“We can’t minimize differences,” said Rabbi Lawrence Zierler, of the Jewish Center of Teaneck, which is Orthodox, “but we can maximize connections.”

Zierler was speaking at a panel last Thursday night entitled “I Respectfully Disagree: Fostering Tolerance & Acceptance in Our Diverse Jewish Community.” The panel, at the YM-YWHA of North Jersey in Wayne, was also sponsored by the Jewish Community Relations Council of UJA Federation of Northern New Jersey and the North Jersey Board of Rabbis. The third and final in a series of panels on civility and diversity, it drew about 25 people.

When is a twin (city) not a twin (city)?

When Wikipedia says it is

Local | WorldPublished: 25 March 2011

Wikipedia, the online encyclopedia that anyone can edit, is one of the most popular sites on the internet.

Siegel, who describes himself as a Jewish anti-Zionist activist, set out to find the origins of this relationship.
