Shmuley and Michael
Yet again, Shmuley Boteach writes about Michael Jackson.
As usual, Reb Shmuley offers fascinating personal anecdotes about his relationship with Jackson, such as:
Many were the times you honored me and my family by ordering kosher food at your home so that we could eat, and even made a Chanukah party for us at your hotel suite entirely catered by a kosher restaurant. Do the same now for two people who are infinitely closer to you.
You often told me that you attribute your professional success to the talent God showered upon you. When I gave you a mezuzah as a gift -- the Hebrew scroll of parchment containing the Shema, the fundamental prayer of Judaism, that is affixed to the door -- you told me that you would cherish it because it would honor God's place in your life. Please see to it that your children's bedrooms have that mezuzah up now, so that they too can feel that God watches over them at every instant.
The column's subtitle is 'A plea to the troubled superstar to raise his kids to know their Jewish heritage.'
Here's a plea to Rabbi Boteach: Please use your talents on something other than writing open letters to Michael Jackson and Britney Spears.
That doesn't include writing to Gene Simmons, Christina Aguilera, Jessica Simpson, or the Beastie Boys either.
