Although I’m not an observant Jew, I’ve yet to join them because something feels Jewishly wrong about hunting for sport (although I might be contradicting myself because I do fish for sport).

Posted on 16 November 2017

I decided to write this after returning from the recent memorial service for an old friend — the latest loss in a string of old friends.
