    Yes. Favorite line: “Are you showing contempt for this court? “. “No, I’m doing my best to hide it !!”.

    Avi and I had our differences. I’m not sure he understood that despite those I held him in honest affection. I tried to reach him by e-mail some months ago, but received no response. Perhaps he’ll see this. Or not.

    @Jake1001

    As I recall CMike left almost 3 years ago. I think he thought we were all too irredeemably liberal - religiously, socially, politically - for him to remain on the forum. I have not seen dantech nor Tarheeler in some time. Tar also used to file on another forum, but I’ve not seen him there either.

    @metis is still an active member here, however a little ways back he rejoined the Catholic Church. You can catch up with him, just not here in this DIR.

    Hi Harel, looks like more than 3 years ! I’m usually pretty busy, but I have a little free time these days, so I thought I’d take a peek.

    I’m ultra reform (big “R” or little “r”), Reconstructionist and Renewal. I mainly look at creation from a scientific POV and religion from an ethical and moralistic perspective.

    I had plenty of differences with Rabbio and Jay, but I’m back to refresh my thinking and provide new insights !

    I'm not familiar with this. Is there some sort of controversy or inside joke among liberal Jews regarding whether or not to capitalize the 'r' in [R/r]eform Judaism?

    ( I'm a liberal American Chabadnik, BTW )
