Date: 8 Jan 92 05:29:23 GMT Approved: [email protected] Lines: 119  This is the initial Request For Discussion (RFD) about reorganizing  soc.culture.jewish into a number of separate newsgroups in order to better address the diversity of subjects and the needs of the readers currently served by the one newsgroup.  PROPOSED NEWSGROUPS: ===================  soc.culture.israel		Internal Israeli subjects (other than politics)  soc.culture.jewish.american	Internal issues for American Jews  soc.religion.jewish		Religious issues for all Jews  talk.politics.israel		Internal Israeli politics (general)  talk.politics.israel.intifada	Internal Israeli politics (Jewish/Arab)   PRELIMINARY CHARTERS: ====================  soc.culture.israel:		To discuss and share information about 				things Israeli taking place in Israel 				and abroad. Music, art, theatre, dance, 				cooking, movies, sports, literature, and 				job information are all examples of 				subjects for this newsgroup.  soc.culture.jewish.american:	To discuss and share information about 				Judaism and the Jewish experience in the 				United States of America. Xmas, Easter, AIDS, 				drug-use, where to live, and where to find 				kosher food are all examples of subjects 				for this newsgroup.  soc.religion.jewish:		To discuss and share information about the 				Jewish religion. Orthodox, Conservative, 				Reform (as well as anywhere to the right, 				left, or in-between of these reference  				points).  talk.politics.israel:		To discuss and share information about  				general internal Israeli politics. Direct 				elections for the Prime Minister/K'nesset 				representatives, old/new/blue laws, etc.  				are all examples of subjects for this  				newsgroup.  talk.politics.israel.intifada:	To discuss and share information about  				internal Israeli politics with regard to  				Jewish/Arab relations.   PROPOSED STATUS:		all newsgroups unmoderated ===============   RATIONALES:	 ==========			  soc.religion.jewish  				Judaism is a religion. Regardless of the 				differences between Orthodox, Conservative, 				Reform, and other paths, Judaism remains, 				first and foremost, a religion. The Jewish 				religion exists, and is the same, despite 				and without regard to geographic borders 				and ethnic differences. As such, there 				exists a definite need for a newsgroup 				which is devoted *entirely* and *solely* 				to the Jewish religion.   soc.culture.israel soc.culture.jewish.american  				Conversely, although Judaism exists in both 				Israel and America, it is a religion, and 				not a culture, and does not address the 				day-to-day experiences of those living in 				either locale. As such, there also exists a 				definite need for two separate newsgroups 				which are devoted *entirely* and *solely* 				to the cultural and daily experiential needs 				of Israelis and Jewish-Americans.  				 talk.politics.israel talk.politics.israel.intifada  				Finally, the politics of the State of Israel 				are (although a subset of them) distinctly 				different from those of the greater Middle- 				Eastern area, and the politics of the `intifada' 				are, in turn, both a subset of and distinctly 				different from the politics of Israel. As such, 				there exists a definite need for two separate 				newsgroups which are devoted *entirely* and 				*solely* [one] to the specific internal 				Israeli issues of the intifada, and [one] to 				the more general internal issues of Israeli 				politics.  There will be a second RFD (Request for Discussion) posted  2 weeks from today, incorporating suggestions from the initial 2-week period.  A CFV (Call for Votes) will be posted 30 days from now, on Rosh Hodesh Adar I (4 February 1992).   Please direct all discussion to news.groups, and please direct all flames to /dev/null. --        Jonathan B.
