"Wicked-pedia" by Rabbi David of Pardes in NYC
Of interest to those of us who love the intersection of Jewish text and the web:

Tuesday, May 8th at 7:30 pm
at Congregation Ramath Orah
550 West 110th Street
New York, NYÂ 10025
Because of the internet, more information is available to usÂ than in any previous generations. But is this a blessing or are there problems with the democratizations of knowledge? Using a biblical and a Talmudic model we will examine what is means to learn and to teach in the modern world.
