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... read on

  • Harmony in the Universe

    By Beit T'shuvah

    By Yeshaia Blakeney

    I woke up this morning thinking about creation.  There were several aspects to this thought.  One is the formation and creation of light and darkness.  The other is this idea of harmony.  I'll start with the second and move to the first.  What is so amazing,... read on

  • Choice in Difficulty

    By Rachel Goldman Neubauer

    I spent much of my Shabbat thinking about our dearly departed Ira Skolky.  What plays through my head more than anything are little snippets from his funeral.  Death in our community, like any other community, is never easy.  By the same token, though,... read on

  • Remembering Ira Skolky

    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

    By Michael Welch

    If you’re looking into getting sober don’t look at the statistics. I also caution you against listening to the stats given on the other end of the phone when researching for help. The chances of staying sober within the first year are 1 in 5. Then there is... read on

    I AM GUILTY! I have made mistakes, I forget to return calls, I have to reschedule appointments, and I don’t call my mother enough. I lose patience too quickly. I don’t rest enough some weeks so I am irritable and ‘fly off the handle.’ My anger is fierce and I am too demanding at... read on
