What … Tyranny and Chocolate???

This week I ran across a fun post in time for Hanukkah by a young Reform Rabbi on her blog, Frume Sarah’s World.

As Jews, we share a unique responsibility in Tikkun Olam, in repairing the world and infusing it with holiness. As such, this author wrote an informative post on Hanukkah gelt. Yes … that’s right, Hanukkah gelt … And raises awareness about ethical considerations when buying chocolate. So, as chocolate lovers … and proponents of social justice … we found her post informative and wanted to share!

About Rabbi Joshua

I'm a Rabbi, writer, thinker, mountain biker, father and husband ... not necessarily in that order. According to my wife, however, I'm just a big nerd. I have degrees in dead languages and ancient stuff. I have studied in various Jewish institutions, including an Orthodox yeshiva in Europe. I get in trouble for making friends with perfect strangers, and for standing on chairs to sing during Shabbos dinner. In addition to being the Senior Rabbi of Simchat Yisrael Messianic Synagogue in West Haven, CT, I write regularly for several publications and speak widely in congregations and conferences. My wife is a Southern-fried Jewish Beltway bandit and a smokin' hot human rights attorney... and please don’t take offense if I dump Tabasco sauce on your cooking.
