Why The Point Stood Empty For a Week

Some people have wondered why The Point hasn't been updated in a week.

My mother passed away recently. Under Jewish custom and law this begins a mourning period known as 'Shivah' during which the mourner doesn't do any work or leave the house except to tend to the burial of the loved one.

The week of shivah concluded on Sunday morning and I'm back to work.

Some of those events were discussed on a post on my blog titled, Deathwatch.

Thank you for all of those who have shared and sent condolences, whether on the blog post, by email or on social media. I have tried to reply to everyone, but I have no doubt failed. Yet all these messages are appreciated.

Thank you.
