Five and a half years since my last entry in this blog. Since leaving Las Vegas as a cantor, I've had a career as an executive director and, now, a chaplain. Four years in Pittsburgh and already a year and a quarter in Vancouver. The path through these places and roles has required a vastly different view of life, of death, of tragedy and joy. Each year it feels as though we begin again, just as we begin again this week to read Bereishit. So now the blog - and this site - rotates towards chaplaincy, moderating Judaism with a more universalist approach.
