I welcome my friend and colleague Rabbi Barry Leff, of B'nai Israel in Toledo Ohio, to the rabbinical blogosphere. Reb Barry has converted his wonderful personal website to a blog that can be accessed at www.neshamah.net.
I have enjoyed Reb Barry's thoughtful insights on all matters when we get together for lunch in Ann Arbor, where he takes a weekly yoga class.
One of the more interesting resources on his blog is his teshuvah (Jewish legal decision) on Eating Dairy Meals in Restaurants that do not have Kosher supervision.
I look forward to being rabbinic colleagues in Ohio with Reb Barry next month when I officially become rabbi of Congregation Agudas Achim in Columbus. However, we will only be Ohio colleagues for a year as Barry and his wife will soon be making aliyah to Israel.
