Embracing Life, Eating Cheese

Last night I joined Rabbi Leon Morris and Joe Fins, M.D. at Temple Emmanuel for a panel on Palliative Care. The best thing about doing an event at Emmanuel is that they label the cheeses -- as in "Belgian Gouda" , "Sharp Wisconsin Cheddar" -- written in mock calligraphic letters. Fins had the line of the night "Palliative care means to "cloak" like wood veneer -- something you won't see here at Emmanuel!"
