My late husband was president of Shir Chadash, here in the Greater New Orleans area. I never found belief as easy as he did; he insisted that our daughter attend the New Orleans Jewish Day School and become a Bat Mitzvah. It's been 3.5 years since he died, but I stopped attending services after Katrina, when I took a job in retail that claims me from 2:00 every Friday till Sunday evening.
I identify as a Jewish atheist, so hearing that you are a Baal Torah is still a turn-on. (I was a Jew by Choice, having been raised Catholic, but having the sense to abandon that in 1973 when I took Judaic Studies in college; actually Judaic Studies turned me into an atheist who got wishy-washy when I met my husband some 18 years later). I'm sure that by now you have done the math--yeah, I'm 56. Too bad we're so far apart in age--but then Boca is very far away, anyway.
I must add that, even tho' they know I'm an atheist, I've been encouraged to stay in the Chevra Kadisha. I think that there are a fair number of atheist Jews; the question is how to find us--and then I suppose, how to sort out the craziness that "atheist Jew" represents.
