Pro­duc­ing con­tent on the Web since 1995.

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.

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?”).


my ques­tions

As I write in my hag­gadah:
Ques­tion­ing is a sign of free­dom, and so we begin with ques­tions.
Does every ques­tion have an answer? Is the abil­ity to func­tion with­out hav­ing all the answers one more stage of lib­er­a­tion? Can we be enslaved to an obses­sive search for the answer?
I col­lect them here.

…be Jew­ish?

For over 25 years I taught the Intro­duc­tion to Judaism course offered by the UAHC/URJ in New York, New Jer­sey and in San Diego.
I think that being Jew­ish is a won­der­fully excit­ing way to live. Some peo­ple approach and won­der if they can do it too. For many years I taught a course that sug­gests some of the hows and excite­ment of becom­ing and being Jewish.
