There was an article published recently by this publication about being more inclusive to homosexual jews. I was very surprised they published it, does anyone know who is in charge of this publication?September 30, 2021 10:12 pm at 10:12 pm #2011124ujmParticipant
It’s run by two liberal Orthodox Jews. One is more religiously leftist than the other. But don’t tell them this. They like to pretend they’re on the right.September 30, 2021 11:05 pm at 11:05 pm #2011145AviraDeArahParticipant
At this point I don’t think it’s highly speculative to say that a great divide is being drawn between those whose desire to not cut themselves off from non-jewish ideology has not, until recently, put them at total odds with halacha, and those who are using the Torah as their sole guide and defining factor..
20 years ago it was easier to be a practicing Jew who thought similarly to non jewish counterparts; today it is completely impossible. Something has to give – it’s either Hashem or the ba’al; it is precisely like Eliyohu on Har Karmel…ad mosai atoh posayach al shtei haseifim…
The rizhiner rebbe said that before moshiach there will be such an event as with Eliyohu, only that the fire will come down on the side of baal.October 1, 2021 1:49 pm at 1:49 pm #2011339K-cupParticipant
I thought it was a charedei lite publication, but still right wingOctober 1, 2021 1:55 pm at 1:55 pm #2011360Yserbius123Participant
The author of the article in question is a highly respected Yeshivishe rov who leads and tries to be mekarev a non-frum kehilla. He clearly has been dealing with a lot of these issues for a number of years and he is trying to get people to understand that they won’t just go away if we pretend it doesn’t exist in our community.October 1, 2021 2:00 pm at 2:00 pm #2011365ujmParticipant
K-cup: They claim to be that; but they are far from it. They promote liberal religious ideas under a so-called chareidi or right cover. They repackage MO talking points in more palatable language.
As they say, don’t judge a book by its “cover”.October 4, 2021 9:45 pm at 9:45 pm #2012261hujuParticipant
I thought cross currents had to do with the flow of water in a river used for Xian baptism.
