I know, I know, I haven't posted in a while.
There's a few reasons. One is that it's Elul. I have lots of ideas but it seems this is just the wrong time of year to whinge and complain about things. I wanted to write a piece on how metzizah b'peh is driving me crazy what with the hysterical response by the Agudah community to a minor suggestion by the city of New York to require signed consent before performing it. I had some ideas for a piece on how the appointment of Rabbi Asher Lopatin to run Yeshivat Chovevei Torah is just another step in that community's eventual exit from Orthodoxy and into right-wing Conservatism. And there's always stuff to comment on about what's going in Israel and the Middle East.
But it just doesn't seem to be the right time for it.
Maybe I've been overwhelmed with work and home responsiblities. Maybe I'm just tired. Maybe I'm just more worried about the next few days what with my neshamah about to be judged by the King of the Universe at all. It's just that blogging doesn't seem to be a huge priority for me right now.
So keep checking once in a while and I will be back.
