About My Heretical Year

Can an atheist ex-Hasid find meaning in a new Jewish context? Over the course of the Jewish year 5776, I will attempt to answer this question with one essay each month — 13 this year — exploring themes and questions that connect to the character of the month. As one who was once steeped in Jewish faith but has come to reject its foundational principles, I nevertheless feel the tug of heritage demanding that I reflect on its continued relevance. “My Heretical Year: An ex-Hasid explores the Jewish calendar” will reflect both my journey away from religious practice, and new attempts to find meaning within Jewishness.
