Jewish stuff

1) In my humble opinion, I think that some people who have the time, should try to organize a small singles event in the Chicago area, preferably around Labor Day weekend. I think that there are enough people in West Rogers Park, Lakeview, Evanston and Hyde Park who would benefit from such an event.

2) Insularity in the Jewish world has a price. Yes, limits need to be set on what comes into the home (Television, racy movies, violent movies, etc.). However, just because some people are fortunate enough to do so, doesn't mean that all Jews, or even a quarter of us, are able to do so.
Since Shabat is Rosh Chodesh Av, and it's the Yahrtzeit of Aharon HaCohen (Aaron the High Priest), I think that we should keep this in mind heading into the Nine Days.

Have a shabat shalom.
