A Few Posts Worth Reading

Trep posts an unbelievably moving post about his family's dedication. His parents, while not keeping a kosher home themselves, keep an entire set of dairy and meat utensils so as to be able to accommodate their family members who do keep kosher. The story Trep recounts shows his family to be truly remarkable. It's a must-read.

Gil posts a report from the Agudah convention. I will hopefully post more dispatches as I get them.

On The Main Line has a great post about whether the Agudah's anti-blog stance is a case of throwing the baby out with the bathwater (or the "good blogs" out with the "bad blogs"), or whether their extreme stance is the only way to fully prevent encountering inappropriate material in the blogosphere.

Jewish Blogmeister points us to the story of Israeli soccer fans who made the mistake of cheering for an Israeli team. What did they get for their efforts? Getting chased by hundreds of fans from the opposing French team, who were reportedly screaming anti-Semitic and racist epithets. Sick stuff.

It's alive!! (i.e.: RenReb graces us with a post.)

I noticed that "Jewish Blogmeister" (What a LAME name) does not include "OrthoMom" on his list of "Blogs Worth Knowing".
Not trying to drum up controversy here (OK fine, I am)but, OM, where is your dignity and self-pride? You're quoting a blogger who doesn't even deem you as "worth knowing"!?
Come on.
Also, shouldn't you be doing something with your kids instead of reading, and then quoting, EVERY blog and newspaper on the planet? Don't you have ANYTHING better to do on a Sunday afternoon? On 2nd thought, keep doing it please...I need something to read and whip me into a frenzy every once on a while.

Maybe you have some better things to do than just try to get people upset? Seems like more of a waste of time to me.

I understand. Your time is far more valuable than mine. You can only make time to leave inane, idiotic comments. That's keeping your priorities in order!

Regarding David's post... I stil remember the weird conversation I had with a guy in an internet cafe in Israel. He was engaged, and his fiance and he had decided to have three sets of dishes: Milchig, fleishig, and treif. He kept kosher, she didn't. I was both impressed and saddened...
