As part of our efforts to provide innovative and effective Jewish education to all, we are proud to announce "The Wonderful Weekly Wonder", a new social media-based educational project - and you can play a huge role in its success.

Basically,  every week we will solicit your questions about Judaism, ranging from philosophical ("why should I visit my grandma?") and the practical ("what does Judaism suggest I do with grandma when I visit her?") to relationship questions ("I broke grandma's teapot and she's really mad at me - any advice?") and other life issues ("I want grandma to move to an assisted living facility and she doesn't want to. She also wants to get married to a guy half her age. What on earth do I do?").

We believe that the Torah has answers for all of life's dilemmas, and we want to explore them together with you. What's unique about this is that the topic is determined by you, and it's perhaps the most convenient method in history to ask questions about Judaism. Skeptics, cynics, and drunks welcome.

Just kidding.

About the drunks.

And now for some FAQs: 

HOW DO I PARTICIPATE?

Awesome question! You can participate on Facebook or Twitter, and all you need to do is begin your question with "I'm wondering" - that's the only rule. No questions or issues are off limits, but silly questions are less likely to receive an answer. Tag me in your question (@JewishWaterloo on Twitter, Moishy Goldman on Facebook) and post as your status.

THEN WHAT HAPPENS? 

Another tremendous question! One Wonder will be chosen every week as the  official "Wonderful Weekly Wonder", and will be posted on our website, along with the name of the Wonderer and the answer, before Shabbat. We will endeavour to answer all wonders, but if there are oodles and oodles of them, some may not get answered. We'll do our very best.

WHAT'S IN IT FOR ME? 

That's a decent question. You'll get a bit of notoriety, nachas for your parents and grandparents, and that warm and fuzzy feeling you get when your teacher commends you for asking brilliant questions. Oh, and you'll also get your wonder answered.

WHEN DOES IT START? 

You can start posting Wonders right away; the first one will be chosen for next Friday, May 11th.
