Doing Jewish

It’s what we do every day. Whether it’s the food we favor…a bagel with shmear… or the drive to repair the world…tikkun olam, we Jews are there, especially in Rockland County, where there are plenty of opportunities. We plan to bring some of them to you every week, on Friday, for a new, sometimes fun, sometimes serious way for Doing Jewish.

  • Rabbi Daniel Graber of New City Jewish Center shares his thoughts about Passover with us. He speaks of the three ways we can dispose of chametz, what's in our homes, our hearts, and our words. As we all get ready to celebrate, consider Rabbi Graber's words about the spiritual chametz that holds us back. Enjoy his thoughtful words.
