Why don’t they have a sports section in the Homidia or a different Jewish Newspaper.December 30, 2012 5:29 am at 5:29 am #915920147Participant
B’H we Jewish people juggle around #’s with issues such as the intricacies of the Jewish calendar [which indeed does have a special section each & every week in the Yated] but don’t waste our time nor talents on the position of a ball or people cheering the # of times this ball touches or moves on a field or across some painted line.December 30, 2012 5:59 am at 5:59 am #915921WIYMember
They should have a spelling section. You totally butchered the word Hamodia lol. Ok not sure its officially an English word but still if you read the paper you should know how to spell its name.December 30, 2012 6:15 am at 6:15 am #915922locaMember
Takah. Thats sucha good idea.
147- We Jewish people? Gasp! How distressing! My father and brothers and cousins and and and… everyone I know who is obsessed with sports must not be Jewish!!!December 30, 2012 10:22 am at 10:22 am #915923natureParticipant
Hamodia thoroughly answered this question in an eloquent article that appeared in the newspaper a couple of years ago. Perhaps someone can post it or perhaps you can ask their office to e-mail it to you.December 30, 2012 1:35 pm at 1:35 pm #915924N.GMember
It is better than jews buying the Daily news there really bad stuff in there, but they have a sports section.December 30, 2012 2:18 pm at 2:18 pm #915925yaakov doeParticipant
Even the Jewish Press and Jewish Week don’t have sports sections and you expect Hamodia to have one. Sports originated with the Greeks and as much as Jews follow some sports they are not a
Jewish thing.December 30, 2012 2:59 pm at 2:59 pm #915926ZeesKiteParticipant
Obviously OP is referring to a different publication.December 30, 2012 4:05 pm at 4:05 pm #915927BustercrownParticipant
I’ve heard it said that since many athletes lead lives with questionable behaviors, ie drugs, steroids, troubled personal lives, that we shouldnt want our youth to believe they should be admired and emulated, much less seen as heroes or role models.December 30, 2012 4:34 pm at 4:34 pm #915928golferParticipant
I expected a thread about a disease I hadn’t yet heard of; “homidia,” maybe related to chlamydia…
Instead I get a sports section in the heimishe newspaper!
Mods, for the sake of a little clarity around here, can you at least correct egregious spelling errors in thread titles (while allowing us to run rampant with the language in our posts)?December 30, 2012 5:06 pm at 5:06 pm #915929agentemesParticipant
You know what I like that the Hamodia magazine has the Business Weekly story
