After one phone call and a couple of texts, nothing. ” I blurted out when he finally called me back the next day. I don’t know if this religion thing is a hurdle we can overcome,” he said. Even though we shared a heritage, we didn’t share a way of living our lives. It was a peaceful and amicable parting, but a sad one.

“I was at the grave of a famous Rabbi,” he explained. I had to wait in line most of the night.” This was incomprehensible to me. I never thought religion would be a dealbreaker for me, especially with another Jew.

never thought I’d be the type of woman to date a religious guy.

A Reform Jew by upbringing, my family ate bagels, lox, and pickled herring on Sundays, lit our Menorah every Hanukkah, and sat through services on the High Holy Days. My mom referred to my face as a beautiful punim and hoped that someday I would meet a nice mensch and get married.

An empty religious practice is just that to me — empty.

I prefer to receive my messages from God by way of i Pod shuffle or the beautiful pattern on peacock feathers.

Post-college, I fully adopted this practice of Spiritual Eclecticism.
