Poll: Great Article Titles

Hey kids, it’s that time of week again, where you get to exercise your democratic right to give your opinion on the fun topic that I decide.

This week, there has been a lot of talk around the office about great article titles on the MJL site. If you peruse around the site, you will find your standard “Barkhu” article but there are some dandies to be found as well. Check these out:

Was There a Jewish Hat?, By Norman Roth: Manuscript illusions, family seals, and rabbinic decisions all indicate that Jewish men in most of medieval Europe wore special hats.

The Life and Times of…uh…God, By Paul Johnson: Author Jack Miles’ Pulitzer Prize winning biography is just divine.

What’s Wrong with Adultery, By Rabbi Shmuley Boteach: The problem is marital infidelity is the loss of the relaxed intimacy that lets us be ourselves.

Do Justice, Baby!, By Rabbi Susan P. Fendrick: Incorporating social action and social justice into your baby’s ceremony.
