So this is my blog and this is my first post . So everyone is clear about this blog, I have decided that it will be helpful to lay out a few points, so everyone is clear about this place -
1. Who are you- an Orthodox Jew, married 40 something of Iraqi and British descent, living in Great Britain.
2. What is this blog about ?- Judaism and how a Jew can and should actively engage this world, without loosing their Jewish practice, identity or beliefs. I make claim to fame or to be particularly learned. This is my own 'raw' account, I'm not a mini-Pope, so I may be wrong on some of my views. But that's life.
3. Who is it aimed at? - Broadly speaking anyone who wishes to read it, but specifically this is a blog for my family and friends, so we can help each other in practicing our faith.
4.Can I comment? -Yes. If you wish to swim in the deep end of this blog, great, I welcome intelligent and erudite discussion. If you prefer shallower waters, please note there is to be no shouting, running or piddling in that section thereof, unless you do so in a witty way and one which does not upset people.
5. Will you do anything about food? -Yes, if I can get one of my sisters or brothers to post about it.
Right, now we've got all that done and over with, time for the first topic of this blog.
