John seems to have jumped tracks from teachers not leading prayers in
school to teachers not teaching.  I'm not sure exactly what he's on
about here.

John apparently hasn't looked at my web page lately, which features a
link to B'Tselem.  John apparently isn't familiar with B'Tselem,
either.  Anyone surprised?

I don't recall the Talmud being taught when I was in Public School.  I
also don't recall it being taught when I was in Hebrew School, but
that's not surprising given that I went to a Reform Temple when I was
practising Judiasm.  (John's probably unfamiliar with the differences
between Reconstructionist, Reform, Conservative, Orthodox, and
Hassidic Judiam, let alone the controversy within Judiasm regarding
the stranglehold Orthodox Jewry has on the Israeli government.)  So
I'm unclear what Talmudic teaching John thinks American tax dollars
are supporting.
