Misunderstandings - Madonna

Okay, so Madonna makes me angry. Not a little annoyed and certainly not entertained. Its the whole idea about being a believer in Kabbalah. Anyone with a minimal Jewish education knows this is total junk, but they are not the problem. The problem is with non-Jews who think she is now somehow Jewish and believes what we believe. Plus, her weirdness (changing her name to Ester, metal bras, etc.) and total immodesty does not reflect positively on Judaism. So I guess it bothers me that people might misunderstand Kabbalah, but it REALLY bothers me that she is so intentionally leading people to misunderstand Judaism.

Hello Everyone!

I am a modern Jew living in Texas. I grew up conservative, but I'm now mostly Orthodox and attend an Orthodox shul.

I want this blog to be about the complexities and oddities of trying to be a Man, Employee, Husband, Father, Citizen, and Friend in our world. I find that these ideas often run into one another and I want to explore them on occasion.

I can be reached at (the name of this blog as one word) at hot mail daht com.
