    maxine in ri,

    As friends, a priest and rabbi were chatting...

    Priest asks "Rabbi, have you ever eaten ham?" Rabbi answered "yes, yes I
    have. It was excellent!"

    After a moment, the Rabbi asks "Priest, have you ever had sex?" Priest
    answered "why yes, yes I have, once, it was excellent!"

    Rabbi asked "Better than ham?"

    Sins eh

    Israel cuts off water to Arab Druze towns on hottest day of year
    IMEMC, July 4, 2009
    The Israeli National Water Company has cut off the water supply to two
    Arab Druze towns inside Israel. While water cut-offs by Israeli
    authorities are common within the Occupied Territories of Gaza and the
    West Bank, they are fairly unheard of within Israel itself.

    ....The water company makes no provision for the weather in their
    decisions to cut off water in non-payment cases. Instead, they
    happened to choose a day (July 1st) that is in the middle of a heat
    wave, and is in fact the hottest day so far this year.

    Ordinary citizens who pay their water fees each month are outraged
    that the two municipalities have been completely cut off. Kamal Adwan,
    a resident of one of the towns, told Israeli daily Yediot Ahranoth,
    "It's not easy to get by without water in this heat. A few have water
    reservoirs or wells near their houses, others just have to buy bottled
    mineral water." Another resident, Samah Kayouif, told the Israeli
    daily that the residents had received no notice of an impending water
    cutoff, saying, "We woke up in the morning to find there was no water
    in the pipes. How do you shower? Shave? Go to the bathroom? Never mind
    just getting a drink. It's impossible to live like this, I had to go
    to work, but my wife took the kids and drove to her parents' because
    they have a rainwater reservoir."

    I wouldn't mind the rest of it, but "no water" would do me in.

    It's also not terribly healthy. No water that is. No food is no big
    deal. I've fasted far longer than that in the distant past.

    It really is no big deal. I just ended my fast tonight and while I was
    fairly thirsty, I wasn't parched. I sing in the choir in our Temple and have
    had some issues at Yom Kippur services with dry throat in the past but not
    today.

    All in all, a good fast.

    It seems like the one day of the year that every single ad on TV is
    about food.

    I fasted the entire time and felt wonderful. Even read the haftorah
    (selection from the prophets) about Jonah at the late afternoon service.
    Did a little crying at the Yizkor (Memorial)service. I must have eaten
    too much after the fast. Now I have to atone for heartburn. Will try
    another prevacid before bed.

    I hope everyone has been inscribed for a good year.

    If it was unhealthy, we would not be required to do it. Anyone with
    health issues is forbidden to fast. Jews have been fasting like this for
    thousands of years.

    If you are really trying to purify yourself and want to improve your
    behavior, some discomfort is necessary.

    =========================================
    It does! I never could do that. I'd take my blood pressure pills one
    at a time a couple of hours apart just for the water!

    It's also impossible to act as cantor and sing all the services both
    days without water!

    First in the evening from 8 pm to 9:30 pm. Then the next morning 10
    am till 12:30 pm when you - break for "not lunch". Then come back that
    afternoon for 3 consecutive services with 5 minute bathroom breaks
    that nobody needs!)

    Finish about 6 pm and "break the fast" with a light potluck buffet (no
    meat but lox, bagels, tuna salad, green salads, hummus, tabouleh,
    heirloom tomatoes with feta cheese & basil, fresh fruit and sweets.

    For some unfathomable reason, it's my favorite holiday!

    Amen. We had a speaker at church whose topic that morning was something
    that resonated with us all: "If your faith has not cost you anything,
    it sure ain't worth much."

    Sounds like a logical plan to me. Starve yourself and then stuff
    yourself until your sick. No wonder I blew off religion when I
    figured out santa was a fraud too.

    the times i've had to do 'no water after midnight' for some kind of medical

    Me, too. But the original statement was about health. I don't think
    one day without water is that dangerous.
