I am a reader of Jewish non-fiction by day, and a reader of fiction and poetry by night. At times I am also a writer. I am obsessed with everything about books, from the words to the smell, from the paper to the platform, from the font to the finances. I also spend a lot of time thinking about, talking about, and writing about Judaism, feminism, Israel, and food culture/cooking. Fact/Fiction is a place to share ideas about what I’m reading, what I’m thinking about, and sometimes even what I’m writing.
I am a rabbi and the publisher of CCAR Press (www.ccarpress.org), the high holy day rabbi at Fire Island Pines, and author of various poems, essays, and books. Views expressed here are strictly my own. Please let me know what you think.
