What's your Jewish volume?

My Jewish volume is turned up to 9 or so, these days, and I don’t anticipate it dropping. (Something about enrolling in rabbinic school… :-)

I like the volume metaphor. It gives me the sense that though my dial has moved around, over the last fifteen years or so, I’ve consistently been engaged in Jewishness — it’s not like one ever stops having a dial, right?

Stirring things up (blog round-up)

Thank you for this roundup! The event sounds marvelous; I wish I could have been there. I’m excited by the kind of connection you describe; it sounds like what my teachers might call “deep ecumenism,” and it’s something I’ve found profoundly valuable when I’ve been lucky enough to encounter it.
