    By Seth Menachem

    May 5, 2005 | 8:00 pm

    It was only last October when I penned the column, "No Rush," for this paper, arguing against marriage.

    Now, eight months later, I take it all back. Well, most of it.

    As I wrote, I still do believe that other people often try to convince you to get married in order to...

  • Beyond Holy

    By Reb Mimi Feigelson

    May 5, 2005 | 8:00 pm


    There are many questions that I want to ask God face to face. Some clustered in theology, others in theodicy. Some have to do with His/Her sense of humor (often biting and dry, although quite creative). Some question evil, pain and suffering. At times I simply want to check in to...

    By Jill Stewart

    May 5, 2005 | 8:00 pm

    May 5, 2005 | 8:00 pm

    Between the time that college ended and life began, I lived in San Francisco. My confusion must have shown on my face plain as day, because wherever I went, missionaries approached me and asked whether I had a personal relationship with Jesus.
