Is living a zero-waste lifestyle really possible?
Is anyone prepared for this level of emotional devastation at this point?

Perhaps because of Judaism’s emphasis on life, Jewish death rituals are often beautiful, stark, and wise. They are a gift we can give to the world — and offer mourning without myth.

Peres wrote: תצעדו ברגליכם, וברגליכם יילך איתכם כל העם. תרכינו ראש לזכרם, תרימו ראש למדינת ישראל. זה מצעד שאין דומה לו בשום עם ולשום מצב. צאתכם בשלום ושובכם בשלום. אנחנו נוסיף לזכור את הכאב ונוסיף לבנות מדינה שלא איבדה תקוותה לתקן את העולם כולם. תהיו ברוכים.
It’s hard to describe how one event can change your line of work. But, the more I have been involved with the film making/ storytelling, the more I am finding stories of just that: People running through life pursuing this or that line of work, and then some how are thrust into a situation that calls to them and helps them to rethink what they are doing and why they are doing it. Many times this rethinking has not only helped them change careers, but also provided a turning point in their lives where their influence for helping other has been magnified.

It’s not giving anything away to say that Lifetime’s new movie “Twist of Faith” ends with its mismatched romantic leads back together, embracing on the threshold of her home. Nor does it reveal anything to note that Music and the Power of Song connect Toni Braxton’s Black Gospel singer with David Julian Hirsh’s doubting, erstwhile cantor. And it certainly doesn’t spoil the movie to mention that “Twist of Faith,” which Lifetime calls an “interfaith love story,” begins with the horrific murder of the cantor’s wife and children on an ordinary bus, on an ordinary day, in an indeterminate part of Orthodox New York. This is a Lifetime movie: love conquers all and violence expresses the persistent vulnerability of women. None of this makes watching “Twist of Faith” any less surreal.
