    Discussions concerning atonement and the High Holy Days

    After reading an article this morning about an annual Jewish Deli Summit, I really wanted a sandwich for lunch. So I left my pizza in the office fridge until tomorrow and went to a locally renowned delicatessen in an area with a substantial Jewish population and had my fill. However, when I walked in and looked around, I quickly realized I was probably the only one in there who didn't remember the Roosevelt administration... the GOP Roosevelt.

    Speaking of Judaism we spent much of the time at church last Sunday discussing atonement and forgiveness because the High Holy Days are upon us......so if ofos any Cyburbian feels like they owe me an apology, now would be a great time to cough it up.

    For my part I apologize for having participated as much as I have in political threads this past year. I mean that most sincerely.

    I apologize for not posting in the birthday, Clube, and new member threads. I just don't care enough.

    I apologize for not making a bigger deal of you moving past Dan, to be part of the Triumvirate of Top 3ness (TT3) with JNA and RJ.

    Congrats and I look forward for your first declaration.

    If I have offended anyone, I apologize [cough]bullshit[/cough]. I too regret all the time that I have spent in political threads, especially today. I do not apologize nor ask forgiveness for Maisterbaiting.

    I'm sorry for all the problems we're having with the server.

    I'm not feeling an excessive amount of heartfelt contrition here, guys.

    You appear to engage in that activity more than most. But few do it better than you. I guess one could say you're a practiced hand when it comes to that.

    All things in moderation. It's easy to lose control but I think I've got a grip on it now.

    I think that it's great that we can have these religious-oriented discussions with such open candour. It's really a beautiful thing. I don't know about you, but I'm getting close to being teshuvah'ed out.

    http://www.stevesdeli.com/
    http://bronxdeli.com/contact.html

    The first two are the best in that list, but the last is the best price.

    None of them come close to Zingerman's.

    A grocery store by my house carries Zingerman's meat, bread, and condiments. I wonder how close to the real thing it would be if I bought the ingredients and just made a sandwich at home...

    Word.

    Okay, actually tying this slightly to the subject of the High Holy days..... one year, to increase our awareness of other traditions, we did a Rosh Hashana feast and had lots of different fruits to dip in honey.

    Why don't you knock it off with them negative waves?
    Why don't you dig how beautiful it is out here?
    Why don't you say something righteous and hopeful for a change?

    Are you sure you're not hurt ?
    No. Just some parts wake up faster than others.
    Broke parts take a little longer, though.

    I am not much of a religious fellow, though I have been a spiritual seeker from time to time.

    Of the many religious days and practices that are practiced, I believe Yom Kippur (the Day of Atonement) is the greatest idea. It is an opportunity to cleanse one's soul of spiritual transgressions. Given my uncertainity of the nature of the Diety or dieties, I am not so strong on this regard.

    However, I think it can also be an opportunity to make amends for wrongs we have done to others. I think that is something that everyone, regardless of their faith or lack of faith can benefit from.

    But I wouldn't want it to devolve into another excuse to have to buy your wife or girlfriend a gift.

    Or making it a Hallmark holiday.

    Good thing you get 10 days to identify all the badness you wreaked in the previous year before Yom Kippur. I tossed my bread in the managed wetlands at our new open space yesterday to cover the little things. But as I contemplate it more, there’s so much! Can I just say “sorry for being such an a$$hat last year” and be done with it? Or is thinking that a sin too?

    Well, better get to it. The book is closing…

    For a true sandwich experience in the OC, you have to go to Ernie's Market. It's not a Jewish-style deli at all, but the sandwiches are great and so is Ernie.
