We would like to get volunteers over the next few weeks to write the D'var Torah.  This includes diaries for Sukkot and Shemini Atzeret / Simhat Torah.  I'm leaving off Yom Kippur but if you are writing one please publish it.  If you haven't a D'var Torah, give it a try, none of us are rabbinical scholars.  And you don't even have to be Jewish!

Shabbat, September 29:  Ha'azinu,  Torah Reading:  Deuteronomy chapter 32, Haftarah:
2 Samuel 22: 1-51

Sukkot:  Monday October 1 through Sunday October 7 (if you want to comment on a text, the Book of Ecclesiastes, which is usually read on the Shabbat of Sukkot, would be nice.)

Shemini Atzeret/Simhat Torah:  Monday and Tuesday, October 8 to 9

Shabbat, October 13:  Bereshit:  Torah Reading:  Genesis 1:1 to 6:8, Haftarah:  Isaiah 42: 5 to 43: 10.

Shabbat, October 20:  Noah:  Torah Reading:  Genesis 6:9 to 11:32, Haftarah:  Isaiah 54:1 to 55:5.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.

    whatever no one else wants or if you don't get a response, I'll do Sukkot.  Ecclesiastes might be fun.  I may post something for Yom Kippur, but I'm not sure.

    Our new cantor is being installed this afternoon, and our little musical group will be playing as part of the celebration.  This is becoming good fun.

    Yeah, I'm grabbing the fun one.  But I have an oddball piece on the Sons of Cain that I'd like to work up.  What's so interesting about the Sons of Cain?  Ah, just wait and see.

      I think it was racist ideology that the "Mark of Cain" turned white people into black people and therefore the "Negro race" was cursed and therefore slavery and lynching and all the other persecution of blacks was Biblically ordained.  These people failed to read the next few chapters in their bibles, or to connect the dots in the Biblical story, otherwise, they would have realized that the descendants of Cain were wiped out in Noah's Flood.
