At Last, a Reason to Go to Temple -- For Yet Another Trinity Toll Road Forum, Oy

I rarely go to shul, and when I do, it's usually for something unusual -- like, oh, a mayoral-candidates forum or a Trinity toll-road referendum debate. And, see, Temple Emanu-El does it right: Sure, you have to get up a little early on a Sunday morning for the temple's regular Community Breakfasts, but the mensches on the Emanu-El Brotherhood do it right -- fresh Einstein Bros. bagels, lox and cream cheese and strong coffee, for starters.

And you'll need it this weekend: On Sunday at 9:30 a.m. -- with the buffet line opening at 9, all completely gratis but no shoving, please -- Emanu-El will host in the Tobian Auditorium a Trinity River Project Panel, featuring Mayor Tom Leppert and architect and Trinity Commons Foundation board member Bob Meckfessel on the pro-toll road side and, once more, council person Angela Hunt and former council member Sandy Greyson representing the anti faction. It'll be just like Yom Kippur, without the fasting. --Robert Wilonsky
