...of the firstborn”. On the morning of the Passover seder the firstborn sons in traditional Jewish families are made observe the “fast of the Firstborn to honor the lord for sparing the Hebrews firstborn sons. This fast typically last all day until the Passover seder, The Passover seder is another religious practice that celebrates this festival. In tradition of the Passover seder it is custom for Jewish families to gather for a dinner where the Haggadah is used to retell the story of the Exodus from Egypt. During the Passover seder there are 15 parts to this religious practice, these practices are made to parallel the 15 steps that were taken in the Temple of Jerusalem where the Levites stood during the temple service that are known as the Shir HaMa’a lot found in Pslams 120-134. There are several elements that make Passover a holy day for the Jewish people. Despite the differences that may arise between the different Sects of Judaism they all realize that this is a time of religious tradition that is meant to honor the lord, remember the Hebrew people that have come before them. To me that is what really makes this a holy day, despite the differences and differing points about the finer details on when Passover actually begins the differing sects of Judaism still celebrate this day in their own ways....

Reform Judiasm

...general concepts of the Jewish faith in my mind; I just needed to witness a virtual worship service and fill in some of the minor details while gathering some additional intelligence on some misconceptions. So I decided to go over to the Ustream for “Shir Hadash” and witness a Community Shabbat (Sabbath) Service (Ustream, 2011). What I discovered watching the 2.5 hour Shabbat service followed by some additional research gave me a rude awakening. The impression of Judaism that I’ve carried with me up to this point is what is known as Orthodox Judaism. The Jews that I’ve witnessed in tight-knit communities in places such as Brooklyn, New York and Oak Park, Michigan were towns filled with Orthodox Jews. In addition to Orthodox Judaism, there is also Conservative Judaism. Conservative Judaism reverences traditional Jewish practices in America, but also accepts modern culture outside of tradition in daily life. Community Shabbat Service at Shir Hadash The Shir Hadash congregation just outside of Los Angeles, California is part of the “Union for Reform Judaism.” Reform (or Liberal) Judaism is a separate branch from Orthodox Judaism and Conservative Judaism (Congregation Shir Hadash, 2011). As we enter temple at Shir Hadash on a Saturday morning, our first impression as an outsider might be, “Wow, even the women wear kippahs too!” We take our seats and much to our surprise, a woman rabbi steps to the altar and greets the congregation. After a few brief words......

Self-Immolation: a Rampant Social Phenomenon Among Afghan Women

...period of civil discord has made Afghanistan increasingly vulnerable to the influence of warlords, who routinely violate, kidnap, and kill women as a means of attacking their enemies (Aziz 50). As if the brutal warlord gang rapes were not already enough of a pressing issue, Afghan women who choose to become police officers, news broadcasters, journalists, or politicians in an attempt to become active in the community challenge the country’s traditional gender roles, and are often intimidated or killed for doing so (Alvi). The misogyny inherent in Afghan culture has created a society in which countless women become the targets of brutal acts of violence on a daily basis, which the director of the women’s affairs department in Herat, Seema Shir Mohammadi, links directly to the influx of self-immolated deaths in Afghanistan, saying that “women are increasingly paying back the violence they receive at home and outside by self-immolation” (qtd. in Raj, Gomez, and Silverman 2204). Nonetheless, what is almost more upsetting than the immediate cause for this utterly depressing trend is that which allows it to continue. The fact that the Afghan government has neglected to seriously address the widespread maltreatment of its women has played a critical role in the growth the self-immolation phenomenon as well. The parliament passed the Shi’a Personal Status Law in March of 2009, which was signed by President Karzai in the hopes of winning over the Shi’i fundamentalists’ support......

In Strategic position, there are 2 types of structural alternatives, which are lower complexity and higher complexity.

Persian Literature

...modernization drive was strong. In the 1960s, modern Iranian poetry and that of Mohammad Iqbal Lahouri made a profound impression in Tajik poetry. This period is probably the richest and most prolific period for the development of themes and forms in Persian poetry in Tajikistan. Some Tajik poets were mere imitators, and one can easily see the traits of foreign poets in their work. Only two or three poets were able to digest the foreign poetry and compose original poetry. In Tajikistan, the format and pictorial aspects of short stories and novels were taken from Russian and other European literature. Some of Tajikistan's prominent names in Persian literature are Golrokhsar Safi Eva,[25] Mo'men Ghena'at,[26] Farzaneh Khojandi[27] and Layeq Shir-Ali. ...

Hahaha

...Today is a rainy winter day. I slept really little last night so forgive me for this ugly picture. On a rainy winter day, I'm enjoying some me-time eating hot ramyeon in my room. :D love it. Its been almost 2 weeks since we've arrived in Korea. 2 weeks here seems really long for me too. In the short 2 weeks, Shir and I have been to so many places, met so many people. But then you realise that Seoul isn't really that different from Singapore. Well there are things I really enjoy though, like taking a stroll in the park, walking around a lot on the streets with my friends, climbing up or down a mountain, just enjoying one another's company is enough. Come to think of that, I've never really done that in Singapore? Maybe we don't have enough parks. Haha, but I guess that's what I really enjoy about Korea as of now, the nature - waters, trees, rocks. I'm still feeling sore about the fact that I have not seen snow. :( after all the excitement, I never got to see snow. =.= As the weather turns cold again this coming week, I really hope there would be some snow. SOME will do. I just need to see it. TT I think I'm the silliest thing ever. Yesterday I went out without my wallet. And I travelled 1h 30min without realising I didn't have my wallet with me! I was so far from home and it was impossible to return home to get it anymore. So silly. The funnier thing was the same thing happened to my new buddy the day before.

Judaism

...religion and what it means to be Jewish. That’s great. It’s good to have an open mind and want to learn more about religion. As I sat down and asked Brent questions about his religion, he began to tell me about the meaning and the history of Judaism. Since he practices the reformed sect of the religion there are more lenient rules because it is the least strict of the three sects. When I had asked him about what the Jewish thoughts and beliefs are about Jesus, Brent said, “Jesus was just a carpenter that was sentenced to crucifixion on the cross.” Interesting response. More dismissive of Jesus than many Jews are. As I asked questions, Brent began to get in depth about the religion by telling me everything he knows. I was informed about Temple Shir Shalom in West Bloomfield, Michigan and was invited to a Thursday service. According to Brent, “The traditions of the religion have been getting lost through time and Yiddish is a dying language that is used less and less each day.” Judaism is defined by its culture and is a cultural lifestyle choice. At the end of the interview, I asked Brent why the Jewish people are considered or stereotyped as cheap. I now know the true reason the Jews are considered to be cheap penny pinchers. It is because they lived in Ghettos and searched for bargains on food and clothing while selling their goods at higher costs. They did not want to spend more money than they had to and refused to sell their goods at bargain prices. Fascinating! I’m glad......
