Below is a quote from the New York Times with one word missing. Is the word his or her? You can scroll down to the end of the post for the answer.
"The Times and other media have been seeking full access to ____ medical records for some time now."
How To Improve The Memory And Avoid Forgetfulness
Tisha B'av Burst of Inspiration 5776
Yesterday Israel Matzav posted about a congregant's decision to suspend her affiliation with a synagogue because the congregational leader's "decision to encourage Jews to sign up for a trip that includes a visit to Yasser Arafat's grave altered my view of our differences."
The itinerary of the trip can be viewed here by scrolling down to page 12.
The program has now been changed and can be viewed here by clicking on the link to see the itinerary.
Whereas previously day 9 of the trip had included " Visit Yasser Arafat’s Tomb to learn about his legacy," that sentence is now absent from the updated schedule.
What still remains is eating dinner in Bethlehem "hosted by Palestinian families in their homes."
The synagiogue's site links to a video demonsrating a man and woman showing how to put on tefilin and the brocha they recite. Why is tefilin important and kashrut not?
In an article titled Why I'm Fasting, Yoseif Bloch wonders why a congregational leader would write in an article titled Why I’m not fasting on Tisha B’Av that eating terumah wouldn't appeal to her as a vegetarian.
"See, terumah is for vegetarians: it’s the term used in talmudic and halachic literature for the portion of grain, wine, and corn (and other produce as well) given to priestly families." http://blogs.timesofisrael.com/why-im-fasting/
Can someone explain why eating terumah wouldn't appeal to her if she is a vegetarian? She posted the same article on her blog in 2013 so obviously there is a good explanation to her statement. Otherwise she would have changed the wording from her post of three years ago.
