    Posting on Sabbath

    Like I said before, when someone asks why there are no posters in here on Shabbat, then it is most likely that people are observing Shabbat, now, it has nothing to do with "yardsticks", I think you will find, that I don't do petty measurements, people can please themselves. Now, if people want...

    The Hajj.

    Hi, Salaam alaikum :) I have a young friend who is a Muslim and I asked her if she would make the trip to the Hajj and she said to me, that she might not ever do this trip, because it totally changes your life and she felt that she was not ready for this trip because she could not return home...

    Posting on Sabbath

    Ha :D I liked what you wrote, everybody saying that everybody else's methods are not as good as theirs, although I am with the Orthodox community (more relaxed Orthodox and a very tiny community), I attend Reform services aswell, and out of the two communities, the Reform is stricter over...

    Services of Worship.

    Wil, Thankyou for your reply to me, I wondered whether people thought that maintaining their language in their place of worship was something which strengthened their communities, and do people fear that their methods are becoming lost to more modern forms of prayer with less of, Latin...

    Services of Worship.

    I would like to ask a question to those of different religions, Islam and Catholocism (can't think of any others), as a Jew, when I go to Synagogue service, all of our services are conducted in Hebrew with very little English involved, I would like to ask, in Islam, are all your services...

    Posting on Sabbath

    My statement to Prober, is in answer to why there is very little activity on this site over Shabbat, nothing to do with measuring anybody else's yardstick. I observe Shabbat and by reading your post, I believe that you do aswell, others do not, it is entirely up to the individual what they do...

    Yom Kippur

    Hi Faithfulservant, Reading through your post, yes, Yom Kippur is still our Day of Atonement and a day of complete reflection and meditation starting with Kol Nidrei (All Vows) and the fast in which we partake in for 25 hours, no food and no water. Most of the time is spent in the Synagogue in...

    Posting on Sabbath

    Hi Prober, In answer to your first question, no, I do not post on Shabbat, I do not put my computer on, after Synagogue service, I spend the rest of the time in total rest and then, when Shabbat ends, I do my usual household chores. Most of us Jews who are observant will not be on our...

    Hi everyone.

    Hey, it's great to meet you James, I have to do a lot of travelling to get to my Shul, but it is so worth it, I am the only practising Jew living in my town, the rest of my community is an hours drive from me, so we all have to travel to Shul (me the furthest away). But it's good to be able to...

    Political Poems

    In Cold Blood. Too much suffering going on, At someone else's hands, The anger's been there, too long, And no one understands, There's too much, give and take, So many people with guns, Far too many mistakes, And far too many lost ones. The politician, he ain't wrong, But it's the people...

    Hi everyone.

    Thankyou James, this gives me a chance to get to know people from all faiths and backgrounds and to learn about other religions other than my own religion, I have often looked for a forum which people from all faiths can come together and interact.
