Who Knows?
  That's because I took down the old version and put up a new one. I guess Frum Chat must scour You Tube and pick up any videos on Jewish themes. Either that or they just liked these two videos. They didn't pick up my other two videos about Beyond Faith.

Do you know what Frum means? It is a word that Orthodox Jews use to describe someone who is observant. Being observant is a bit different than being "religious". Actually, they never use that word. Maybe because it is so vague. What does it mean to be religious? Is that something you do or something you think? Maybe its something you feel. But being frum means you eat kosher food, you go to synagogue, you say a prayer before and after eating, etc.

The word "spiritual" is also vague. Some people say, "I am not religious, but I'm very spiritual." What does that mean? I guess it means that they don't subscribe to any particular religion but have feelings that about God, or angels, or that they meditate, or maybe that they believe in ghosts ... Who knows?

I had a cello teacher once who was in the Boston Symphony. We were working on a Popper Etude that had the marking "Religioso". I asked him what that meant, and he said, "Who the f&$# knows!"
