New contributor. Made a few changes under my IP's. Left a few notes.

Long-term goal: To fix (mostly rewrite) the Young Israel page, which is pretty horrible.

One cause: Over-reliance on web-based sources by Wiki-editors. Particularly in Jewish subjects, such sources tend to be quite inferior to printed material. I am referring to general sources, not sources specific to particular topics or issues.

Revised the Erusin (Jewish Betrothal) article. Comments welcome, if anyone cares. The part that sounds like Jews are some obscure undiscovered tribe are not mine.

Attempted to fix the intermarriage articles; may have gone too far.

NOTE: All entries under my name for April 27, 2011, including the page the Next 100 Years are not mine. It was my mistake; I was logged into someone else's machine.

Most proud of: Inspiring others (I think) to modify Reliable Sources to distinguish between newspaper fact and opinion. And, over course, my adverb userbox.

Most frustrated by: After working long and hard to clean up the Erusin page, having it deleted wholesale by someone because it was mixed with the contributions of a banned editor. Furthermore, I was not able to put my contributions back because I have not yet had time to re-check all of the sources.
