How one-quarter can make a whole Jew
Dear Ask-The-Rabbi, Last week these dudes in fedoras pulled a bar mitzvah on me. I’m twenty years old. I never had a bar mitzvah. Simple reason: I’m not Jewish. My dad’s not Jewish. My mom’s not Jewish. But I let out to these guys that my mom’s mom is Jew...

What exactly is our ideal society?
Dear Ask-the-Rabbi Rabbi, With the current presidential elections in the U.S., there’s been a lot of debate about Judaism, socialism and capitalism, since one of the candidates—the Jewish one—identifies himself as a “democratic socialist.” Some Jewish vot...
The Jewish obsession with arguments
How can we rely on these rabbis if they can’t even agree with one another?
