It may look like an simple Via Rail train sitting in the station in the middle of downtown London. But it's really a connector that brings people together at the times - and for the things - that matter most. Something to be thankful for, I'm guessing.

8 crazy nights

There's always one candle with an apparent rush to end it all.

Seriously, though, every year, this moment, when the last candles are lit, and slowly fade to darkness, I feel more than a little vaklempt. Somehow, we need to do more, not just as Jews, but as citizens of this crazy, damaged, gorgeous, unpredictable and miraculous planet, to find the light and keep it lit.

It doesn't matter which imaginary being you worship: This should touch all of us. Who's in?

The cream may have been sour, but the breakfast-table light and texture were way sweet - and too good to resist.
