Clouds of Dissent

Now that the Holidays are behind us, more variety in Jewish blogging should be in store. I just read through with a group the Tosefta in Sanhedrin which says that "At first there were no disagreements in Israel". Can't say I much like it (I remember that DZ Hoffmann has an explanation of that baraita in his HaMishna HaRishona, but I don't remember whether it was convincing).

Mobius gave a talk about open-source Internet resources as the cure for the ills of institutional Judaism. A nice new initiative which contributes something to the cause of Open Source Judaism is a blog devoted to discussing the Passover Haggadah. It's called 4 Sons and Sons.

Looking forward to cloud-filled skies glowing a pleasant grey. Hodesh tov.

I never really could figure out how Open Source Judaism differed from Reconstructionism.
