This is great! I'm just new to The Tribe one year ago. A
Jew by Choice, and not through marriage. Just looked around
a lot of years and here I am. And here I am at a great site
to learn about Torah. No pressure. Thanks so much for the
sharing. FYI: I go to a weekly parsha group led by a Reform
female rabbi, at a Conservative shul, and while I was
converted Conservative, I am discovering an interest in

I'm brand new to cyberspace and found my way to your site
on the recommendation of a friend (who had directed me to
shamash.org). I'm delighted with what I've found and look
forward to thoughtful time spent in Bluethread's realm. I've
already "bookmarked" you and will surely share with my
on-line congregants news of your wonderful resource. Many
thanks for your lovely design and thoughtful approach.
L'shannah tovah tikatevu!

I read about Bluethread last week in the Washington
Jewish Week. Finding your site came at a perfect time. I am
doing research for our Sisterhood Study Group on Ke Tetze
and was trying to find out why the mixing of wool and thread
was okay on the tzitzi but not any other time. I found my
answer ... and a neat place to keep coming back to!

TODAH RABBAH for creating such a lovely page. My husband,
(Micah4vs5@aol.com) Gershon, is a convert that has been
featured in many of the Jewish papers because of his
interesting story of conversion. We call it "From Klansman
To Landsman". I left Judaism, eventually found myself in
Unity, and returned because of my husband, who was then lay
rabbi in Boise, Idaho. If we can be of service to you, let
us know. Yehudit

As a fellow "graduate" of "The
First Hebrew Primer" from EKS, I was pleased to browse the
Bluethread site after a friend brought it to my attention.
It is clearly very ambitious and done with love.
I will enjoy seeing how it
progresses. Keep up the great work!!

Dear Cy Silver and Rose Falanga,
I came across the "Bluethread" web page yesterday, and
want to commend you for its tone and focus. As a
traditionally-observant person who is aware that there are
other forms of Jewish identification (did I say that
correctly enough?) I appreciate the responsible and caring
attitude I see in your effort.

This is a very comforting site. I found you just when I
need you. It's always that way, isn't it. The Lord guides us
to where we need to be.

We really enjoy the concept and execution behind the
Bluehread site. We discovered it about
two weeks ago, and was delighted to see the write-up in the
online edition of the Northern California Jewish
We told a number of friends about
the site and their response has been uniformly
Mazel tov! And all good wishes for
continued success with this project.
