    WhY the LargE LetterS? Wine is produced from the material within the grape. It comes from a place that is hidden within, and exemplifies that which is hidden and needs to be brought forth. Likewise, spirituality is hidden in our physical world and needs to be brought forth. For this reason, the numerical value of the Hebrew word for wine, Yayin, is the same as the numerical value of the Hebrew word for secret, Sod. Wine exemplifies the "secret" of the physical – i.e. the spiritual. Therefore, at any spiritual time or event, Judaism attaches wine in order to bring...

    Tags: jesus, liturgy, new testament, prayer, shema When Jesus Said The Shema So you’ve heard of the Shema, right? The most important prayer in Judaism?

They reportedly did so at about 2:30 a.m. Video of the Jewish counterattack garnered enthusiastic reactions on Facebook. Jews all over Israel find themselves routinely harassed by noise pollution from Muslim neighborhoods in recent years. This less-known “intifada” by Arabs involves fitting loudspeakers on minarets in mosques – which for centuries made do with unamplified muezzin calls for prayer. The Jerusalem Municipality reportedly embarked on a process to investigate and limit the noise pollution by...

    The Internet says the ruins of the First Temple are in the South Pacific. Matthew Fishbane went to find them.A little over a year ago, Tablet Magazine’s Matthew Fishbane was emailed a grainy video of Papua New Guinea’s Gogodala people—in grass skirts, their bodies decorated with body paint and feathers—singing the Shema, the holiest of Hebrew prayers. A few Google searches later, he’d uncovered claims that the Lost Temple of Israel is hidden someplace in the South Pacific. And so he went to investigate…
