Today I’m at tcjewfolk.com with a post for the Jewish New Year called “STOP BLAMING HEBREW SCHOOL” where I proclaim it’s time to stop using the following excuses for our lack of Jewish knowledge: our childhood rabbis, the denomination in which we were raised, the Hebrew and/or religious school we did or didn’t attend, and our parents’ lack of observance.
Time to step it up and take some responsibility. We’re not twelve-years-old anymore.
