    By Ben Spielberg

    Age .2: I have just been circumcised for no apparent reason. A bearded man prayed to me. I cried throughout the night.

    Age 4: I have begun to notice that there are other people in this world known as “Christians.” My favorite television shows all have specials... read on

  • Broken Blog about Brokenness

    By Michael Welch

    I believe where I’m the most tortured is through my brokenness. It’s the concrete regions of where I exist. All-in or all-out. If I’m dieting, I’m eating 500 or less calories a day while exercising to the point of exhaustion, if I’m eating unhealthily I’m... read on

  • Harmony in the Universe

    By Rabbi Mark Borovitz

    Redemption takes a community. This realization came to me this week in a very tragic, powerful way. One of our staff members, Ira Skolky, z"l, died from a massive stroke. It is a great loss to the Beit T’Shuvah community and to the greater Jewish and... read on

  • There’s More Than One Wall at the Western Wall

    By M. Alexander

    A few days ago, 10 women were arrested in Israel.  Their crime?—wearing talits at the Western Wall.  I understand that traditional Jewish factions forbid this practice, and Israel must hold fast to its Jewish identity if it is to survive in the Middle East and... read on

  • I Hate Sobriety

    By Beit T'shuvah

    By Ben Spielberg

    I hate sobriety. Let me rephrase, I hate the idea of sobriety. I don’t like the Styrofoam coffee cups and powdered creamer they have at AA meetings. I don’t like talking about my feelings to older men and women, watching their faces contort with judgment as I... read on
