What’s With All the Eating?

Someone once summarized all of Jewish history in less than 10 words…

They tried to kill us, we won, let’s eat!

If spirituality is supposed to be the opposite of materialism, why to we have so much emphasis on eating meals on Shabbat and Jewish Festivals… not to mention Bris’s and Weddings?

In this short interview by Adrienne Gold, Rabbi Veffer explains in his unique way why food is such a central part of Judaism.

(Note from Author – This novel was a best seller in Israel for much of 1996 and 1997. It was written after the Oslo accords were signed and a terror onslaught was unleashed by the Palestinians, murdering thousands of Israel citizens. A grass roots movement began made up of mostly religious and right-wing settlers to protest, and either slow down, or stop the Oslo “peace process.”

This is my account of these tense years in Israel’s history written under my pseudonym “Charles Samuel.” If you ever wanted to understand the real motivations of the right-wing settlers, and not what you read in the press, this book will give you an insider’s view. Sadly, it is as fresh and relevant today as it was then.)

A Phone Call from the President

Many years ago, at a talk given during Elul at Aish HaTorah in Jerusalem, the Rosh Yeshiva Rabbi Noah Weinberg zt’l posed the following challenge:

Over and over again throughout the Rosh Hashanah prayer service we ask God that He rule over the entire world and that all humanity should recognize His Kingship. We know that this is what mankind needs to straighten itself out. Now, if this is what we really want, we have to mean what we say. How do we know if we really want God to be our King?”

Before we answer Rabbi Weinberg’s question, I’d like to share with you a story that happened to me a couple of weeks before he asked that question. Continue reading
