Best of the Rest

This entry was posted in General on by .

There are only so many articles a website can put up in a week on their homepage. Plus, who can blame us for posting a cute doggy picture to go along with our article on ethical treatment of animals, to commemorate Michael Vick’s (Boo.) release from prison? By the way, Michael Vick is to America as Haman is to the Jews.

Okay, here is some of what you missed. By the way, you can always sign up for our “This Week on MyJewishLearning” RSS Feed. That way, any time an article is published, you’ll be the first to read it.

All of these articles come from the Jewish Women’s Archive:

– We got an article on Dinah, and her controversial story from the Book of Genesis.

– To go along with our ever expanding content on Ethiopian Jewry, we have two articles about women in Ethiopia. One on their role in society and the other about Ethiopian women in Israel.

– Finally, we have two new articles about the Bais Yaacov schools. One is about the history of the all-girl schools, and the other is about its founder, Sarah Schenirer.

Have a Shabbat Shalom and a good weekend!

  1. Michael Vick is to America as Haman is to the Jews? I think we can think of worse sports stars whose cruelty, lack of human compassion, and concern only for themselves supersedes Michael Vick’s dog fighting ring. He didn’t murder or rape. He didn’t impregnate a woman on every away game. A little perspective, please. The man got screwed for dog-fighting when if you accidentally shoot your driver with a shot-gun in a freak gun-fighting accident, you can be cleared to play.

    Defending Michael Vick aside, allow me to clarify. I didn’t necessarily mean that Michael Vick was the worst man in America. I meant that he was, at the time of his trial, the most hated man in America. But lets be clear. It wasn’t just a dog fighting ring. Here is just one example of what went on with Vick. After a dog was wounded in a fight, Vick gave permission for the dog to be doused with water and then electrocuted. And that, again, is just one example.

    Lets not make it sound like he was simply involved in some illegal gambling scheme.
