the Mezuzah

November 15th our new - and, as always, temporary - home was complete: a mezuzah (straight from Israel) was finally affixed to our doorpost, with the brokhe and yarmulkes (or, in "goyish", blessing and head coverings) de rigueur.  I'm still as atheist as they come, for sure.  But hey, what's the problem with cosmopolitanism blent in with a healthy dose of yiddishkeyt and other symbols, practices and identities due to accidents of birth and life?
