  • Guarding the Body of a Friend

    June 13, 2014 | 11:32 am

    I left for the airport as soon as I got the call. My friend Yosefa, a brilliant tattoo artist, educator, and fellow Kohenet, was on her deathbed, dying of a brain tumor. I booked the next flight from Philadelphia to Seattle in time to do shemirah, to guard her body and soul after...

  • Death on Torah on the Trails

    By Susan Esther Barnes

    May 21, 2014 | 1:30 am

    On the third Saturday of the month our Torah Study group, which normally meets in a room at the synagogue, instead goes on “Torah on the Trails.” Usually, this consists of carpooling to a trailhead, taking an easy hike to a gathering place, settling in to study some Torah, then...

  • When a mother dies

    By Danielle Berrin

    May 7, 2014 | 11:53 am

    On my desk sits a photograph of a mother and child. In 5-by-7 black and white, a beautiful young woman in her 20s, her dark hair in a twist, and her lips and fingernails plainly tinted, is holding her baby up to her cheek and looking out, almost heavenward. Their faces are...

  • Where Are You, Jahi McMath?

    By Susan Esther Barnes

    January 8, 2014 | 12:30 am

    For weeks, I’ve been having an internal debate about whether to write about this particular tragedy. If I were to write about it, what point(s) would I want to make that I haven’t seen made elsewhere? What is missing from this discussion?

    In case you somehow missed it, Jahi...

  • Talking end of life with next of kin

    By Rabbi Laura Geller

    January 7, 2014 | 11:46 am

    Maybe it is thinking about the New Year that brings up the subject. Or maybe because the holiday season is a time when families come together and talk.  For whatever reason, within the last few weeks NPR did a story on “The Conversation Project,”  and the LA Times had an Opinion...

  • Walking on the wild side and returning to the sacred side: Or becoming a rabbi because of Lou Reed

    October 29, 2013 | 1:40 pm

    Word of Lou Reed walking beyond the wild side, never to return, reached me as I was leaving campus, having just finished teaching a class on Modern Jewish Philosophy. As I recovered my copy of Take No Prisoners on my i-Phone and flicking to his 1978 strung-out rendition of “Sweet...

    October 29, 2013 | 10:33 am

    Lou Reed’s death on Sunday has made me think not just of his music but of his life, and specifically about when his life and mine briefly intersected, back when my brother Frank and I entertained him at our parents’ Philadelphia home, unbeknownst to mom and dad.

    It was 1969 and...

    I love my older sister very much and felt the need to write about her today. I mention her often here, but do not think I have ever dedicated an entire blog to her.  It is time.  This weekend my sister was gracious and kind in a way that I would like to think I would also be.  She...
