    I'm going to services (which is not my favorite activity), fasting, and giving money to charity. Frankly, as a former atheist, I think that might be more that I've ever done!

    What, if anything, are other gay Jews doing?

    Also, does anyone belong to a gay synagogue?

    There are two gay synagogues in L.A., Beth Chayim Chadashim (oldest gay synagogue in the country) and Kol Ami in Hollywood. The 2nd has an interesting website, and usually has webcam services, which is pretty cool.

    Charity, Services, and Fasting.

    I also like to take out my journals from high school, read through those during the day, and go through very old (2007, 200icon_cool.gif emails I wrote to myself about the hard time I was having that whole year, and reflect on my life in general.

    The worst and best day of the year in many regards.

    What is the Israeli gay site?

    I meditated, thought about why I wasn't going to services, but I went to Ne'Ilah, just in time for the whole experience. It was very renewing. I go to a "modern orthodox" shul, very intense, but not very gay.

    I belonged to the gay synagogue in New York for years, then tried the one in Philadelphia for several years, but it became quite useless. Way too many cranky lesbians. They have successfully run in into the ground.
