TONIGHT IS THIRTY-FIVE DAYS, WHICH IS FIVE WEEKS, OF THE OMER
For me, being Jewish means a living, breathing connection to a peoplehood that spans time and place. I find these connections in my family, my spiritual practice, my learning, the people I meet and know, and the creation of my art. All of these threads infuse who I am and the home I have tried to create for my children so that they will have this same connection no matter where they go or eventually put down roots. I feel a sense of both responsibility and fulfillment, of intense pride at being an active part of our collective memory, history and culture.
