This week as I marked my first Tisha B’av as part of the community, booms filled the sky. Smoke filled the air in Portland and beyond, and I thought of all the atrocities that befell Israel over time and how we’re now seeing it again in America.
It’s the most wonderful time of the year! So they say, and it was a Jew who wrote that
No pork. Dairy. Gluten. No bagels, no bacon. No Christmas trees.
