Re: Repeating to read Zachor to accommodate both Zeicher and Zecher
There are those with whom I may never agree and in particular there is this one fellow with whom I often lock horns; he sent me a private email that expresses some of my own outrage on this matter...
I think it's safe to snip out these two points:
- The practice looks silly.
- The practice looks ... to be huqa utelula.
When you think about it, they are almost the same point.
Here is my similar reaction in a private email to a completely different colleague.
I still think it's a bad approach, a bad precedent and a bad example. We're making Reform & Conservative frummer with regards to the Masoretic text than we Orthodox Jews are. As we play more games with it, we thereby making it appear "less holy" and more susceptible to error.
Zeicher and Zecher on steroids. ;-)
