It was a short but fascinating discussion. I had about a dozen singles over for Friday night dinner -- as part of Lori Pietruszka's "Shabbat in the Hood" program to connect Jewish singles... read full article

    As we walked back from shul on a recent Shabbat, my friend and neighbor David Myers asked me if I was "comfortable" with the service we had just attended.

    He asked me that question, because I'd mentioned that I'm not used to a service where they don't separate the men and the...

    It must have been quite a scene, and quite a neighborhood. Boys as young as 3 waking up at 5 a.m. with their fathers and brothers and walking to their shuls for the morning prayers. Hundreds of men -- grandfathers, fathers, teenagers, little boys -- going to meet God when the sun...

    Next time I'll be more careful before I make fun of cheesecakes. You might recall that last week, I waxed plaintively at how the custom of serving dairy has come to dominate people's view of Shavuot -- and how the holiday could certainly use some better marketing to make it more...
