It was inspired by a number of things, but not least the absurd situation that people who claim the label 'orthodox', or even 'orthodox rabbi' can go round spouting things that are straight up heresy, anti-emuna, anti-yiddishkeit and anti-Torah.
Sadly, there's so many people out there today who think the 'kosher' label they're waving in everyone's face gives them licence to act and speak in completely unkosher ways.
(I just choked back another Facebook rant...)
God doesn't hold by labels. God ignores the label and dives straight into to see what's hiding behind it, tachlis, on the soul level.
A kind heart, an honest approach, an abiding love for our fellow Jew, a belief in the Almighty, and in the truth of His Torah - or the opposite.
And that stuff can also be found in people who don't necessarily label themselves as 'orthodox'.
While we're on the subject of Sasson, we're looking for more submissions for the next edition.
It's going to officially ‘publish’ on Sunday, Dec 3rd, 2017, around 10 days before Chanuka begins.
The suggested theme (which you can completely ignore, don’t worry) is: ‘Putting more ‘light’ into the world’.
And we’re looking for FICTION, NON-FICTION, TORAH, POETRY, PHOTOS, BOOK REVIEWS - and open to suggestions about other things, too.
We’re hoping to get most of the copy in by NOVEMBER 19TH, 2017, for inclusion in that issue.
FOR NON-FICTION / TORAH SUBMISSIONS:
Please send your pieces to firstname.lastname@example.org (me) and cc. email@example.com (Rina is the other non-fiction editor).
