Mourning the Morning Call—back in New Orleans

URL: http://www.jewishjournal.com/travel/article/mourning_the_morning_call_back_in_new_orleans_20070316

I am a New Orleans Jew. The values of those identities fuel me like the smooth-yet-caffeinated drink that is the trademark of my hometown. I embrace the changing communal calendars and the rituals for their observances of joy and tragedy. These have taught me what it means to be human and how to extract eternity from the changing seasons.
