It's time to solicit volunteers for the next two months to write the weekly D'var Torah diaries. I'm also including a request for volunteers to write diaries on Chanukah (or however you prefer to spell it). Chanukah diaries are welcome at any time starting now through the end of the holiday. If you haven't written a D'var Torah before, why not give it a try? And you don't even have to be Jewish!

Chanukah: Saturday night December 8 through sundown Sunday December 16
