"COURTING FORGIVENESS"

Just in time for pre-Yom Kippur reflection on our "dating sins," my newest singles column, "Courting Forgiveness," appears in this week's Jewish Week. (Never you mind that gi-NORMOUS picture of my head...the resolution's a lot better when the photo is smaller...)

Wishing all of my Jewish friends a meaningful fast, and wishing us all a wonderful, healthy new year, full of peace, faith, hope, and happiness.

Hmm, I think the Al Chet will have a new meaning this year. I have to remember to throw one in there asking for my beshert's name and/or location.

Thanks for the great article (as always) Esther.

Oops...forgot...an easy fast to you too.

Esther,
As you are a reader of my blog, you know that tough times have on me befallen (wow, bad grammar, but forgive me & give me poetic license; it's 7am!). Anyway, given what I'm going through right now, be flattered that your article had me LOL :) I loved the shoe analogy (and am excited that it's ok to wear sneakers to shul!) and could totally relate (unfortunately?) to many of the "Al Chet" lines you suggested... especially "flirting without follow-up." Oops! Well, we're all human right?

Look at me having forgotten like the above poster...
Hope you and your loved ones had a shana tova u'metuka and may you be blessed with health, happiness, success and YOUR BASHERET this year :)
Have a tzom kal (easy fast)!

//HAVE BEFALLEN ME//

I had a brain freeze and needed to correct my seeming incompetence :)

Cheers...

That was great, Esther. You rock! :)

Well said. I've only been back in the "scene" for a little over a year and I'm still embarrassed by how many of them I can relate to.

G'mar Tov and have a meaningful fast. And may all your prayers over the holiday be answered affirmatively and quickly in the coming year.

Thank you, all, for your wonderful wishes. I wish that every wish of happiness you utter for another is revisited upon you tenfold. A happy and healthy new year of wishes granted, prayers answered and dreams achieved.

It was SO good to finally meet you last night. Thank you for coming out and supporting us. I'm really looking forward to the next time we can sit down and chat about pop culture and whether or not we can use the word "Heeb" in daily vocabulary.

See you soon my friend!

Hi Ester,
Just found your blog via another...I enjoyed your article and thought that was a nice pic of you! Happy succoth, I will add you to my blog - we seem to have similar interests, esp. in writing.
Take care,
Scarlett

I forgot to tell you. My supervisor's parents cut out the article and sent it to her. It really is a small Jewish shtetl -I mean world- after all.
