Taking a break

April 18th, 2011

Happy Passover to my fellow Jews, and may you have a meaningful Holy Week and a blessed Easter to my Christian readers! I love it when Passover and Easter coincide. This happened a few years ago, and I blogged about how multiculturally adorable it was to take Milo out on trash day and see matzoh boxes in one family’s recycling bin, and discarded palms in their neighbor’s. I didn’t realize at the time that you are not supposed to throw the palms away. And there I was getting a big warm fuzzy out of it.

Anyway, I’m going to take a few days off to get my head straightened out. I am not connecting a whole lot with my religion these days. Like any relationship, it has its ups and downs. Sometimes you feel it, sometimes you go through the motions and wait for grace.

Wish me luck!

    Good luck!
    That last point is one of the Big Learnings.

    I’m wondering at the moment if those of us who are Jewish-by-choice* feel more of an obligation to feel connected with our faith than born Jews. It’s sort of like “Well, since I chose this, I SHOULD feel that it’s Deeply Meaningful ALL THE TIME, and if I don’t feel that way, did I make a mistake in the first place?”

    The answer to that, of course, is what you already said about all relationships having their ups and downs. But I’m not sure anybody’s talking to converts about this particular issue.

    If you’d like to attend anything with us or if you’d like to chat about this more, you know where to find us. :)

    *Or any other religion-by-choice, I suppose, but I don’t have experience with those.
