It's hard, sometimes, to find ways to fit religion in around work, housecleaning, kids, etc.  If you want to be really observant, you have to re-order everything to accomodate your spiritual life (says Laurel, who found herself helping the Jewcy tech-wizard test her connection last Shabbat).  So it's always nice when you can find little things that make your days more menaingful.  Things that fit nicely in among your secular obligations.

And generally, technology makes things even more complcated, however it may be designed to make life "easier".  But may I suggest a tip!

There are all kinds of Jewish audio sources you can turn to.  There are Jewish resources online.  And you can easily load a little bit of faith/inspiration/culture into your ipod while you're at work today, and give it a listen on the way home.  So that sitting on the train, or in the car, or riding your bike, you can have a little "moment".  A "Yid-bit" if you will.

And I'm not talkiing about a small sampling. There are all kinds of Jews on the airwaves.  From pop-culture icons at the 92nd  St Y (on Audible)  to world-famous authors (on Nextbook).  From Torah study to Kabbalah classes.  From interfaith issues to Shoah testimonials.  Do yourself a favor and runa quick search on itunes, or at audible. And remember that almost anything you hear on the radio these days can be found online for a download.  Often for free!

So now you've got no excuse to avoid learning something.
