  • Rabbi Harold M. Schulweis: Why Ferguson matters to Jews, and what makes a rabbi's life well-lived

    6 hours ago

    From a poem by Rabbi Schulweis:

    For Those Beloved Who Survive Me

    Mourning by Harold M. Schulweis

    Mourn me not with tears, ashes or sackcloth.
    Nor dwell in darkness, sadness or remorse.
    Remember that I love you, and wish for you a life of song.
    My immortality, if there be...

  • Receiving the Birthday Gift of Taharah

    November 26, 2014 | 11:05 am

    The first thing I did on my 55th birthday was to participate in my first Taharah (ritual purification).  I can’t think of a better birthday present.  Perhaps calling another person’s taharah one of my best birthday presents ever seemsas strange to you as it did to some of my...

  • Biographer for a Day

    October 15, 2014 | 4:00 am

    Think about it. Most of the time what people say to each other points just to the surface of the intense and conflicting emotions roiling below. Writers use that fact to create tension between what the characters in a story are chattering about and what they really feel and think....

  • Plan Ahead

    September 24, 2014 | 5:00 am

    As we confront our mortality at this time of year (the High Holidays), I would like to suggest a service you can perform that can alleviate suffering, prevent or ameliorate remorse and help prevent financial ruin.  I am talking about end-of-life documents — Durable Power of...

  • Long waiting times & poor care in the V.A.

    September 3, 2014 | 6:00 am

    This is something different for Expired and Inspired. At the same time,this will not be another story about healthcare.  Rather, it will be about VA bureaucracy and respect for veterans at the end of life.

    My childhood best friend’s father died recently.  As Steven put it, his...

  • Under a Tree in the Wilderness

    August 20, 2014 | 6:00 am

    She killed herself under a tree in the wilderness, with the intention of not being found until well after the process of bodily death was complete. Days later I stood in front of her casket.

  • Telltale Tattoos

    July 16, 2014 | 1:16 pm

    One of the most prevalent myths about Jewish death pertains to tattoos: should you have them, you can’t have a Jewish funeral or be buried in a Jewish cemetery. This is simply not true. Indeed, this is the single most frequent tweet I make as a response for Kavod v’Nichum....

  • Come for the Funeral, Stay for Jesus

    By Susan Esther Barnes

    January 29, 2014 | 12:30 am

    Last weekend I attended the funeral for my husband’s cousin. It was held in a church in a small town in Oregon, about an hour and a half from Portland. I don’t, for obvious reasons, spend much time in churches or at Christian services, so it’s interesting to see how things differ...

  • One in 800,000 at Rav Ovadia’s funeral

    October 8, 2013 | 9:30 am

    I didn’t need to ask directions.
