For Ezra devoted his heart to teaching and performing the Torah of the Lord, and to teaching its laws and judgments in Israel.
I consider it to be a kind of "mission statement" for what I aspire to be. I hope I can one day live up to my namesake.
I'm currently living in the city of Midland, in West Texas. It's pretty barren of Jewish life; I'm one of the few Jews out here, and almost the only practicing one.

Who know's one's errors? From hidden mistakes, cleanse me.
Feel free to point out any mistakes I make. I'm just a simple Jew out to learn new things.
I'd love to hear from you!
