Re: Public letter
To Whom It May Concern,
I am a rabbi at Columbia University and a graduate of Beis Midrash Gavoah in Lakewood, NJ.
I have transgender students, transgender congregants, and I have a transgender child. As Jewish educators, we donít teach Torah, in that the Torah doesnít need us as a rebbe. Rather, we teach children, Godís children Ė in Godís dwelling place, the classroom. We are taught in Shabbos 119b that Godís house in Jerusalem was only destroyed because schoolchildren were diverted from learning Torah. The Maharal observes that the purity and holiness of schoolchildren is greater than that of the Holy Temple. He explains that the wood and stones of the Temple are limited in their ability to accept holiness by their finite physical nature. By contrast, children, possessing an eternal soul, have an expansive capacity to hold Godís holiness through Torah learning. When the Jewish People prevented schoolchildren from being the natural receptacle of Torah that they are, it showed that they were not sensitive enough to appreciate even the lower level holiness of the Temple, and were therefore unworthy of it.
What do our actions say about our understanding of the Torah, which doesnít itself have a soul, when we deny its intended purpose, which is to be learned by the souls of Godís children? We are only worthy to teach Torah when we can appreciate the holiness and goodness of those whom we are teaching. All of Godís children are equally loved and entitled to the inheritance of a Jewish education, because they are the holiest among us.
No child should be denied admission based on gender identity. Further, Jewish schools should be welcoming, respectful, and affirming of the gender identities expressed by students. This means at least assuring safe and comfortable bathroom access, usage of preferred pronouns, and gender-affirming application of school dress codes.
The divine mandate to teach Torah comes with the holy responsibility to teach it properly Ė holding in our hearts that each childís most pronounced identity is being created in the image of God.
- Rabbi Mike Moskowitz
Can this be merged with the pot smoking thread?

At least you put this gibberish in JS and didn't pretend it was more than that.
It doesn't belong in JS, it belongs in BS.

Re: 5 Towns/Rockaway Master Thread
In my family we do a lot of TJ, Costco, and occasional S&S shopping. We still need to shop in kosher supermarkets fairly often. And for people who work full time it is just not possible to go to all these stores. Explain to me how you can do all this without shopping in 4-5 stores a week. If you have a family of 6 there is a limit to how much you can buy and freeze. A lot of food is eaten on a weekly basis by 6 people. And I have an additional freezer besides for my kitchen fridge/freezer and garage fridge/freezer

Edit: I really just want to understand how to do it, I am not arguing. Would love to know the secret
A trip to Seasons and GG to get the sale items in each is not much more of a hassle than going to one. They're basically a block away; it's a minute or two from Seasons' parking lot to GG's.

I think the every day prices in Frankel's are better, and for a small fee they deliver.

You can also order online and then pick up. The biggest chisaron is selecting produce, but if you order everything else and pick up, you can choose yourself for a few extra minutes.

You can check the sales online for each, so plan what you're getting where, and it won't be as time consuming.

This is doable if planned well.
