Some good articles

  • Should All Barbies Wear Tefillin?, by Jen Taylor (originally published in the CJ: Voices of Conservative/Masorti Judaism in spring 2008). Interestingly, she says "no." But the case she makes for those who should wear tefillin, while sound, is hard to enforce, because, fundamentally, many of us (myself included) aren't willing to enforce it. (Go tell your best friend that she has to wear tefillin, I dare you.)
  • Profile: Tamar Ross, in Hadassah Magazine--go to Current Issue (August/September 2008 Vol. 90 No. 1), Features, Columns, Profile). (Here's my post on her book.)
