For me, Judaism is about celebrating freedom. It's about moving people from darkness to light; it's about enabling people to be everything they can possibly be, in this time, in this time, in this space.
We were raised in a Conservative movement of Judaism: we went to Sunday school on Sunday, went to Hebrew school Monday through Thursday for five years; Friday night we had dinner at my grandmother's; Saturday was a day of rest. So, I'm not a "go to church," or "go to temple" kind of person. That's not where my comfort zone is. If you were to say that Judaism has three legs to a stool—active loving-kindness, knowledge of the Torah, and prayer, I'd be falling off that stool.
