What I Learned From Bob Dylan and Leonard Cohen

Tue, 22 Nov 2016 12:00:00 EST

Dear Friend, Much of my adolescence revolved around playing guitar and singing the songs of two nice Jewish boys—Bob Dylan and Leonard Cohen. I suppose it’s inevitable that their influence should be somewhere in my writing now. So when Dylan recently snatched a Nobel Prize and Cohen passed on just within walking distance of my home, there was memory, there was introspection. I had to learn something from that past of mine that they had filled. Here’s what they told me: That with a few strums on the guitar and lyrics from the heart you have the power to move mountains. You can change the way a generation thinks. You can change the soul of a nation. And if a guitar and a raspy voice can accomplish that, maybe we should start believing that yet more change comes from within our own homes, our own communities, our own selves. That all it takes is a family where peace dwells on Friday night, a community where people know each other’s jo

The Lousiest Holiday on the Calendar

Mon, 01 Aug 2016 12:00:00 EST

Dear Friend, I don’t like the Three Weeks. I don’t like the Nine Days, which start this Friday. And most of all, I don’t like Tisha B’Av. It’s the lousiest holiday on the Jewish calendar. Tisha B’Av is a fast day. It commemorates the destruction of Jerusalem and our entry into exile. Exile of the body, exile of the soul. Mainly of the soul. At first, I found Tisha B’Av an enchanting, living theater of the absurd. People sitting on overturned chairs. The curtain removed from the ark. Lights half off, half on. Everything deliberately put out of order, just to remember that this is not how things are supposed to be. But by now I’ve had enough. I don’t need a day designed to make me depressed. I don’t need a day to remind me that things are not the way they are supposed to be. I need a day in which to make things the way they should be

If Torah Is Divine Wisdom, Why Doesn’t It Read That Way? - When a story isn’t just a story

Thu, 09 Jun 2016 12:00:00 EST

I’m kinda disappointed about this Torah. I keep reading on your site about it being the ultimate divine wisdom. To me, it reads like a book of stories. If it’s really a divine document, shouldn’t it read more like one of those ancient mystical texts, like the wild and wonderful Zohar or the cryptic and mystical Book of Formation?
