The Torah admonishes each Jew to 'take care of yourself,' to do what's necessary to stay alive and well. Obviously this means to do life enhancing actions like eating and sleeping properly, taking precautions like putting on a seat belt when in a car, and not taking unnecessary risks, like jaywalking across a busy street or walking on a ledge 40 stories high. Most importantly, one needs to get medical attention when sick or injured.

In a speech Monday, Democratic presidential hopeful Joseph Lieberman vowed to work for congressional passage of a bill that would guarantee a range of benefits to partners of gay federal employees, and declared his staunch support for affirmative action and abortion rights ? including the partial birth procedure opposed by many Democrats.

Lieberman?s statements, made at the biannual conference of the Religious Action Center of Reform Judaism, seemed to cement his move away from the centrist image he had crafted for himself in earlier years.
