To discuss issues relevant to the large and growing world of young Frum families and singles who are fully engaged in the Olam HaTorah and Olam HaZeh. You take your career, learning, family (or dating) and play seriously (not necessarily in that order.) You are nervous about the anti-intellectual trends that you see in your community while being proud of being part of the Torah renaissance in our generation.

Orange Kippah sighting

I saw an orange kippah at a Bar Mitzvah yesterday worn by a teenager. It had the following words knitted on it:
"Loh Nishkach, vLoh Nislach"
(for those in Rio Linda California, as my old and discarded Rebbe Rush would say, that means "We won't forget and we won't forgive")

I can think of fewer more distasteful messages to put on a kippah - the symbol of humility before the Creator. (I guess the kippah with the Rolling Stones trademark tounge would be in the running)

Granted I was (and are) on the pro-disengagement side of the debate - but still - this is ridiculous for a Kippah. Especially in light of our current war in Lebanon.
