  • Is Drug Addiction a Moral Issue?

    Absolutely not! Well, kind of. The Rabbi at Beit T’Shuvah and I have a decade-long argument, which for the purposes of this blog, I'll label the Cwon’t (can’t/won’t) argument.  He believes (in general) that people willingly won't change. I have always said that if they could they... read on

    In my experience, Beit T’Shuvah is the sort of community where it’s hard to fit in unless you are either aware of or are in the process of becoming aware of your dark horses and battling them.  And no, those dark horses do NOT need to include alcoholism of some sort (hopefully you... read on

    I was one of a handful of people at Beit T’Shuvah asked to write a weekly blog from my perspective as a Jew in recovery.  This is the first shot, an introduction if you will.  Before I introduce myself, I want to speak about what this task brought up into my consciousness. I... read on
