I like to do crosswords puzzles in free moments. I was in trouble when I discovered the iPod/ iPhone app. I wish I could say I do them because of the new research that indicates that mental games like crosswords and Sudoku stave off Alzheimer’s disease. I’m not that forward-looking. I find that games with repetition and moderate levels of mental attention help to manage anxiety. Yes, I’m claiming health care in Solitaire, Wordsearch and Crossword puzzles. There’s a consistent crossword question and answer that catches my...

One of America’s protective freedoms lies in the principle of “the separation of church and state.” My friends who are legal scholars tell me that the provision was initially made to protect churches from the government. This “freedom of religion” means that the government will not persecute anyone for practicing her faith. It also means that the government will not coerce us all into practicing the same faith. This principle means that there are no government agents taking notes in our churches on Sundays, synagogues on...

My Jewish friends have a mezuzah on the right side of the doorframes of their homes. The small container on the doorpost contains passages from the Sh’ma or V’ahavta, the central affirmation of Jewish faith. Mezuzot contain parchment inside the container with the words from Deuteronomy 6:4-9 and Deuteronomy 11:13-21. On the outside of many mezuzah is the word, Shaddai, a name for G-d. The mezuzah indicates that this is a Jewish home, and that the inhabitants are protected, whether they are inside the home, or outside of it. While...

I first read the book Siddhartha by Hermann Hesse in high school. This short novel describes the spiritual journey of a boy in India. The protagonist, Siddhartha, leaves home in search of enlightenment. His life involves asceticism, wealthy business trade, love and finally a humble occupation as a ferryman. It was years before I understood that this is a story of the Buddha. I was not attracted by the book’s spirituality. I was attracted to Hesse’s description of Siddhartha’s journey. Although Siddhartha is passionate in his...
