      o "Question of the Week"
      o "Rabbi's Answer: "


      I don't subscribe to the Orthodoxy but this joke
      is just perfect, isn't it?


      "Question of the Week"

      Dear Rabbi,

      Why does the Jewish religion seem to obsess over
      insignificant details? How much matza do we have
      to eat, which spoon did I use for milk and which for
      meat, what is the right way to tie my shoelaces? It
      seems to me that this misses the bigger picture by
      focusing on minutiae. Is this nitpicking what Jews
      all spirituality?

      (I actually already sent you this question over a week
      ago and didn't receive a reply. Could it be that you have
      finally been asked a question that you can't answer?!)

      "Rabbi's Answer: "

      Dear Rob,

      I never claimed to have all the answers. There are many
      questions that are beyond me. But it happens to be that
      I did answer your question, and you did get the answer.
      I sent a reply immediately. The fact that you didn't receive
      it is itself the answer to your question.

      You see, I sent you a reply, but I wrote your email address
      leaving out the "dot" before the "com". I figured that you
      should still receive the email, because after all, it is only
      one little dot missing. I mean come on, it's not as if I wrote
      the wrong name or something drastic like that! Would
      anyone be so nitpicky as to differentiate between "yahoocom"
      and " yahoo.com"? Isn't it a bit ridiculous that you didn't get
      my email just because of a little dot?

      No, it's not ridiculous. Because the dot is not just a dot. It
      represents something. That dot has meaning far beyond
      the pixels on the screen that form it. To me it may seem
      insignificant, but that is simply due to my ignorance of the
      ways of the web. All I know is that with the dot, the message
      gets to the right destination; without it, the message is lost
      to oblivion.

      Jewish practices have infinite depth. Each nuance and detail
      contains a world of symbolism. And every dot counts. When
      they are performed with precision, a spiritual vibration is
      emailed throughout the universe, all the way to G~d's inbox.

      If you want to understand the symbolism of the dot, study I.T.
      If you want to understand the symbolism of Judaism, study it.

      All the best,
