Easter and Passover Greetings

In the vein of the early Christian theologians, issuing tidings in the form of an Easter Letter I want to offer my apologies for having been offline from this blog for so long. Additionally, there were several kind and supportive comments waiting for my approval that I did not know about.  I could partly blame it on the fact that I was not emailed notification about these, but in reality, I have been handling the decline and death of both my parents over the last several years, followed by dealing with their estate matters, truly an all-consuming and demoralizing set of tasks.

So, with that said, I want to thank everyone for their support and to encourage everyone to like my public page on Facebook (, or follow me on Twitter @DrArik.  You can also follow the Facebook page of the non-profit that I founded, the Institute for Religious Tolerance, Peace and Justice (, and see our page, ( to view our recent and upcoming events and campaigns. Also, I have become integrally involved in the movement to unionize part-time and contingent faculty in higher education.  Please feel free to view the FB page of our movement at Loyola Marymount University (

Here is to a wonderful rest of the year, committed to social justice and making the world generally a better place.

Happy Easter (Pascha) and Happy Passover to all of you. "Christos Anesti!" as the Greek Orthodox would say.

All my blessings to you,
