Idol Worship on a Fixed Rate Mortgage

Lately, Madonna's arrival for Rosh Hashanah has been raising a lot of talk - the woman who's only LIKE a vir... well, you know, is coming to Israel, sporting her red string and expensive, sports drink-like Judaism... but thinks Rosh Hashanah is cool, reportedly dresses respectfully in Israel, and will probably get at least a few hundred unaffiliated Jews thinking about why Madonna has cast a kind eye on the Jewish State, and why they themselves had never considered it.

If Madonna had never studied with the infamous Kabbalah Center, she would probably be more welcome here. As it is, she is undergoing much good ol' fashioned scrutiny.

But considering what her roots are, I'd say she's taken a giant leap into legitimate monotheism.

After all, she could be touting St. Joseph, the patron saint of home sales.

Here's what you do, if you still maintain faith that tiny clay models of people have major power over your life:

For just $9.95 (or $13.95 for REAL believers who want the larger idol), you buy the Original 4" St. Joseph Statue Home Sales Kit.

You plop the made-in-China deity in a bag, flip 'im upside down, and face its factory-formed face toward your property, and watch those offers come rollin' in!

This kind of stuff makes the Kabbalah Center look like the foyer of the Beit Ha Mikdash. NOT THAT I'M ADVOCATING IT (I can just see all those indignant comments)!! If you want some REAL Judaism, Esther/Madonna, here's a link for you. In the meantime, an apple and honey should cost you no more than 10 shekels - don't let Rabbi Berg fleece you.

And welcome to Israel!

    Well Malkah,the superstitions of Catholics is no different than the superstitions in Judaism...for example, the rocks left by a Jewish grave. And as far as images go...what about the cherubim carved around the Ark of the Covenant?? That always seemed interesting to me. You know we go on round and round on this but the bottom line, as christians and jews, is we have many things that unite us rather than divide us. I plan on making many visits to Israel.(I was just there in March) If I need to put on a gas mask and sit in a shelter with you, I will. If I was there in Aug of 2005, I would have put on an orange shirt and laid my body down for Gush Katif. I'm reading about the rules for the shmitah year and it is fascinating. Even though you have never read the New Testament, Jesus speaks about not mixing the "old" with the "new". Not putting new wine in old wineskin, not patching an old garment with a new cloth. One chapter has Jesus and his diciples eating fresh corn in a field. I didn't even know you had a day for eating fresh corn only! We believe that Jesus still has Jewish DNA in His resurected body for all eternity! So Judaisn is very close to our hearts. Oh and BTW, old St. Joseph was Jewish too! judith

    Having a statue of a saint is probably less objectively strange than kissing a mezzuzah. Or believing that failure to affix/inspect the mezzuzah is responsible for illness.

    That's all fine. What, however, do you think about Obadiah Shoher's criticism pf Rosh Hashanah as aholiday that has nothing to do with New Year? Here, for example
