Judaism and Vegetarianism:  Are Jews Obligated to Be Vegetarians?

In promoting vegetarianism since 1977, I have been arguing that Jews have a choice as to whether or not to be vegetarians.

:  .... Light My Fire

Hannukah is a GREAT reason for party. In fact, you can have a great celebration without having to put much thought into the content or preplanned activities. Just put out the traditional "latkes" (potato pancakes) and/or the "sufganiot" (jelly doughnuts) and you'll attract participants from miles around (who would pass up free food?).

Happy Purim!:  IWD - Intoxicated While Dbasing

"Eat drink and be merry for tomorrow is Monday" is not exactly a Jewish concept, but this is one holiday where we are told go out and get smashed. Many reasons are given. One relates to the message that you are to let yourself go totally, showing trust in no one but God. Another reminds us that during the Feast of Ahasuerus many Jews took part, getting plastered with all that followed. [Full article...]
