Back -- and tipsy

Back to the blog after some time away, and want to raise a toast to Reform Judaism magazine, which this month releases its "RJ Insider's Guide to KOSHER WINE."

The guide comes with sidebars on what makes a wine kosher, mevushal, and kosher for Passover, and yet no discussion of "personal and congregational autonomy," which often accompanies the Union of Reform Judaism's discussion of kashrut. Reform-bashers will see this as amusing; classical Reform proponents might see it as a sell-out; the knowledgeable will see it as keeping with the movement's most up-to-date "Principles."
