Rabbi Mordecai Kaplan's 13 Wants

By:
Rabbi Rami Shapiro

I found this online and wanted to share it with you. I wrote my MA thesis on the work of Rabbi Kaplan, and learned from him privately in Jerusalem in 1976. I had not seen this text before. It only enhances my appreciation of this great sage.

Tablet Wars

By:
Rabbi Rami Shapiro

Posting the Ten Commandments in government buildings may soon become legal in Tennessee, and I for one am all for it. After all this is a central Jewish document, and if Tennessee wants to honor my people and our faith, well, bless their little hearts.

This is War

By:
Rabbi Rami Shapiro

War is hell. And hell—or at least heaven—makes war all the more hellish. Mohamed Merah the Islamic terrorist who recently murdered three French soldiers, three Jewish children and their rabbi was a person of faith. After considering surrender, Mr.

By:
Rabbi Rami Shapiro

America is an ideal that can never be completely fulfilled. That’s not something to be disparaged but celebrated: we are always looking to live our values in more and more expansive ways.

How Much Do I Love Free Will?

By:
Rabbi Rami Shapiro

Keep the Doubt

By:
Rabbi Rami Shapiro
