    October 3, 2014 | 2:08 pm

    These days, more people are wearing white after Labor Day, especially on Yom Kippur. Last year, to keep up with the trend, I looked to buy a white suit to wear during my yearly battle of spirituality vs somnambulism. I had heard that everyone else in my congregation was going to...

  • Not so fast: The difference between ‘doing life’ and living

    August 20, 2013 | 12:50 pm

    We live in a world that values achievement, excellence, hard work and success. There’s nothing wrong with any of these things. In fact, I wish them on us all — on our synagogues and our schools, on ourselves and our children as well.

    I consider Yom Kippur eve the sandwich holiday. Not because I would ever serve my family and friends sandwiches before going to synagogue on the eve of a solemn fast. I see the start of Yom Kippur this way, because it's sandwiched between two days of Rosh Hashanah celebrations and...

    Although most American Jews break the Yom Kippur fast with bagels and lox, there is no reason why the menu has to be limited to what has become for many people, everyday fare, the equivalent of Jewish fast food.

    A year after my father's unexpected death from a kidney transplant, I returned home.
