Hero, Israel

Question 1: Should a religion or philosophy be judged by what kind of people it produces?

IMHO, If a religion or philosophy doesn't make its followers into better human beings, what's the point?

These two short films about two very real Jewish heroes say more than I possibly can:

Tonight and Friday is the holiday of Shavuos/Shavuot - a time to re-think the relevance of this religion-philosophy called Judaism and how important it is to us.

Passover: renew your tribal membership
Shavuos: rejuvenate your religious-philosophical membership.

Question 2: Why do we eat cheesecake on Shavuos? What’s your best guess?

Chag Sameach and Shabbat Shalom
