Rabbi Rami Shapiro

Letter to a New Rabbi

Rabbi Rami Shapiro

By:
Rabbi Rami Shapiro

Breakfast at Noshville

By:
Rabbi Rami Shapiro

I’m sitting at the counter in Noshville, Nashville’s New York-style Jewish deli, talking to a well-dressed fellow who tells me he’s a lawyer. Our conversation turns to the economy, and I thought I’d share his thoughts with you as best as I can recall them.

I Have Failed, Part 4

By:
Rabbi Rami Shapiro

I seem to have opened a can of worms, and I invite you worms to post your comments on the blog rather than emailing me directly. I can’t respond to each writer, and I have to move on to other matters, but I have been getting some email about my anti-religion attitude.
