I have been blogging for ten years to my “select” audience, on anything that tickled my fancy or felt appropriate in any week. Sometimes the blogs were theological, sometimes political, often historical, or even serendipitous. It wasn’t always clear if I was flying a kite. Sometimes my readers thought I was angry, when I was just sad at the abuses of religion and the failures of leadership. My intention was to educate, to challenge, and to entertain. Sometimes I managed all three in one blog entry.
I was asked by my friend Joe Dwek to publish a collection of some of my blog posts. So, for those who enjoyed them, for those who didn’t, for those who have not yet joined my list for weekly blog mailings, here’s a pretty random sample of blogging on Jewish, secular, and social themes. I hope you enjoy at least some of them.
