I’m not a religious person.
But I do believe in something higher than humans out there.
I do believe in traditions.
And I do respect religion.
My wife and I recently had a Hebrew naming ceremony for our daughter Layla.
Instead of joining a temple and hold it there, we asked a Chabad Rabbi to come to her party and do an informal, more laid back ceremony.
The Rabbi invited our family to attend a Saturday morning service at the Chabad House, so we did.
It was a nice experience, and what we believe is a start of a new tradition in our family. Namely, informal ceremonies that are more personal and more enjoyable to the standard religious ceremonies.
I know this photo has nothing to do with Judaism, but I thought it fit nicely as it is a faith style photo.
The sculpture you see is from the grounds at Duke Farms.
