some say­ings of ר‘משבצונה“ל

For many years I have worked hard, and strug­gled with mas­ter­ing virtuous. Now, in addi­tion, I’m work­ing on becom­ing more virtual.
This is an expres­sion of that effort.

השיבנו ה‘ אליך ונשובה חדש ימינו

ומביא גאלה…

All pho­tographs are by Mark Hurvitz unless they are obvi­ously not (or credit oth­er­wise is given).

The pho­tos in the ban­ner at the top (only a shal­low sliver of a much larger photo) are either from our home or our trav­els and are offered for their beauty alone (though a brain-teaser for me: “Where was that?”).

#blogelul : faith

what does it mean to have faith?

When some­one pro­duces the same lapel but­ton for com­pet­ing can­di­dates, all that indi­vid­ual is inter­ested in is the dol­lar. So encour­ag­ing us to [have?] faith in either can­di­date from the 2008 pres­i­den­tial elec­tion is very odd.

Is faith some­thing you can have in some­one? We say: “I have faith in you.”

Is faith some­thing that…? As in: “I have faith that….”

how do you under­stand faith?

what is “#blogelul”?

My friend and col­league Phyl­lis Som­mers has thought of yet a new cre­ative way to pre­pare for Rosh haShan­nah. You can learn more here.

your lapel buttons

Many peo­ple have lapel but­tons. They may be attached to a favorite hat or jacket you no longer wear, or poked into a cork-board on your wall. If you have any lay­ing around that you do not feel emo­tion­ally attached to, please let me know. I pre­serve these for the Jew­ish peo­ple. At some point they will all go to an appro­pri­ate museum. You can see all the but­tons shared to date.
