The Jewish holidays are almost upon us, and we are looking for volunteers not only to write diaries for the weekly Torah and/or Haftarah readings, but also diaries for each of the Jewish holidays. Here is a schedule, so please volunteer. You don't have to be a rabbinical scholar (none of us are), in fact, you don't even have to be Jewish.
