Decorate your Sukkah—or Synagogue or Classroom Wall
Masorti's creative "Yellow Pages" poster/ad campaign cataloguing the livelihoods of Talmudic sages caught the attention of Jerusalemites and the Israeli press as public attention in Israel focused on government stipends for full-time yeshiva students.
Now available as a poster in English through Haggadahs-R-Us, (shown below) it is a terrific conversation-starter for classrooms, in your sukkah or just about anywhere you gather with friends and family.
50% of the profits from the poster sales will go to support the Masorti movement in Israel.
$11.95 for 18"x 23.5" full-color laminated poster
$8.95 each for 2 or more copies; bulk rates available.
Shipping additional: $3.41 for 1 or 2 copies, via USPS Media Mail.

Sometimes, it isn't about nuance. Sometimes it just comes down to facing the storm, calling God out, standing at the center of a whirlwind holding your ground.
No cathedral is immune to agony, no soul impervious to life itself
no nation purely noble. If it were any other way, there would be no need for cathedrals in the first place.
To kneel is to submit
to lower oneself
to step down
To kneel is to call attention
to touch the Earth's face
to listen to those
whose blood saturates
the very roots of our story.
To kneel is to step aside
to step outside
to invite others to come closer
To kneel is not to stand
not to stand
not to stand idly by. Speak your truth, God damn it.
