Example text

Why is a sukkah so magical to me? It’s the essence of my home, the play-home, even better than the real home, to invite people into. It’s a promise—come to my sukkah, come to my play-home tonight and I will make you happy. We will play by my rules, and cruelty and falsity are outlawed. Together we will cast a spell, just for the evening, and everyone at the table will add their softness, their laughter, their sweetness, their songs, and we will play together as if of course the world has meaning and it will all turn out right in the end and we will have fun and no one can hurt us here in this magical play-home.

BEGINNINGS morning service I ever attended, walking into the room and seeing men wearing tefillin (two small black leather boxes containing scriptural passages, bound by black leather strips, worn on the left hand and arm and on the head). I had never in my life seen tefillin and the sight of these men whom I knew engaged in their morning prayers was such an intimate scene for me that I felt embarrassed to have intruded with my presence—somehow I shouldn’t be viewing what felt to me so private a moment.

Mostly these young men—in those days they were all men—were already married; this year one of them was single: an intense, intellectually keen 24-year-old redhead. What began as a friendship budded into a romance. Since Eddie had compunctions about “dating a student,” we agreed I would take none of his classes. Further, we determined our privacy was best served by dating in secret. What that meant in those days in provincial Brooklyn was simply to see each other in Manhattan. Very quickly we came to love each other.
