    When a relationship ends it is humiliating.  When you write about your relationship for the world to see, a break up takes on a whole other level of humiliation. I have spent the last year sharing my love with you.  How we met, our dates, meeting kids, our first fight, our first...

    I love a good Rabbi.  Truth be told, when I started my spiritual journey to find my own level of Judaism, I loved all Rabbis.  I was in awe of men who could quote Torah, and guide me through my faith.  I have always thought Rabbis were special, often thought they were sexy, and...

    There were a lot of moments of silence this week.

    There was the one early Saturday morning when you first heard the news of the space shuttle Columbia's disappearance. Whoever told you, whomever you told, there was that instant of disbelief, that moment when words failed you.
