Reminds me of the Rabbi on Fiddler on the Roof: God, Bless and keep the Czar… far away from us

This is what I was referring to: A Daily Dose of TalmudDaf Yomi for Everyone, from My Jewish Learning
Marjorie Searl

Thanks David. I was hoping you would post.

This conversation reminds me of a joke I once heard:
Joe Easterly
01:03:55
Two Rabbis argued late into the night about the existence of God, and, using strong arguments from the scriptures, ended up indisputably disproving His existence. The next day, one Rabbi was surprised to see the other walking into the shul for morning services. "I thought we had agreed there was no God," he said. "Yes, but still you go to shul!”

I'm getting hungry!
Christina Arden-Jackson
01:08:45
No traif Larry!
CathH
01:09:23
uh oh, don't look in our fridge, Christina....
Christina Arden-Jackson
01:10:26
And don't look in mine, Cath!
CathH
01:10:52
hahaha!
Marjorie Searl

Not a Catholic, but I would venture to say that there is a good deal of pushback within the Catholic Church and from one congregation to another…women priests, Latin mass, receiving communion, etc. Even with a Pope, I don’t see it as being fundamentally dissimilar.
CathH
01:14:11
Agreed, Margie. My Catholic friends don't assiduously adhere to everything the Pope says. They don't see homosexuality as a sin; they use birth control, etc. They have broader views in many ways than what the party line lays down. And that's just human nature - thank goodness. We tend to think for ourselves and be more expansive in our views than what we are told to do by authority figures.
Christina Arden-Jackson
01:18:26
To those who participate in tanach and Torah study on Saturday mornings: I will likely not be able to participate this Shabbat, because I'm having some outpatient throat surgery on Friday. Not a biggie, but I won't be able to talk for 3 -7 days, and I'll be resting as I recover.
CathH
01:19:34
Take good care and be kind to yourself, Christina. May you heal fully and quickly and come back to us soon.
Jacob Adams
01:19:50
Will pray for an easy recovery. Hope you have a speedy one
Marjorie Searl
01:20:02
Be well.
Christina Arden-Jackson
01:20:14
Thank you, friends.
CathH
01:22:26
Bye all...see you "at" Temple!
