Fast Equals Forfeit
The girls basketball team at Northwest
Yeshiva, an Orthodox Jewish high
school of about 60 students on Mercer
Island, Wash., became the first team
from a Jewish school to qualify for a
state prep basketball tournament.
It also became the first team to
forfeit a state tournament game.
The 613s — Northwest's nickname
refers to the 613 commandments
— were scheduled to play a conso-
lation bracket game at 12:30 p.m. on
the Fast of Esther.
Because the girls couldn't eat or
drink until nightfall and the game
couldn't be rescheduled, school offi-
cials decided to forfeit. El

eng shui is an
ancient art devel-
oped in China
over 3,000 years
ago. Its goal is to balance
the energies of any given
space to assure health,
wellness and good fortune
to those who inhabit it.
Like acupuncture, feng
shui is based on the prin-
ciple of qi, an energy that
fills our spaces and makes
it feel alive.
You may have heard the expres-
sion that the space has good feng
shui or even walked into a space
yourself and had a good or bad
feeling when you did. One of the
objects of feng shui is to create a
free path for the qi to flow through-
out your home.
Picture qi as a gentle stream
flowing through your home. By
doing a simple walk through
your home, you can see where
the stream flows
smoothly and where
clutter and objects
get in its way.
An important prin-
ciple of feng shui is
the theory of yin and
yang, or balance.
This theory believes
that everything in the
universe consists of
two opposing ener-
gies — yin and yang.
Yin and yang cannot
exist without one another. Simple
examples of yin and yang are night
and day, hot or cold, relaxed or
uptight, happy or sad.
Creating a home that has a bal-
ance of yin and yang is very impor-
tant in feng shui. For example, yin
energy should be prominent in your
bedroom. Yin is relaxing and sooth-
ing and will support your body's
ability to sleep. Yin colors and
sounds will be very helpful in the
On the other hand, yang-domi-
nant items like the television and
computer in the yin space of the
bedroom can lead to insomnia and
difficulty relaxing. Keeping the yang
items in their appropriate places
(the living room and
kitchen) will help to bring
sanctity and balance to
Feng Shui also views
the five elements (wood,
fire, earth, metal and
water) as very important
to be included in a home
design. According to
Terah Kathryn Collins,
founder of the Western
School of Feng Shui
in San Diego, "When
all five are included in your home
design, health and happiness are
best held in place."
Each element can be expressed
in a variety of ways. This can
include items that are made out
of an element (wood or metal),
objects that are associated with
an element (plants are associated
with earth) or colors that take on an
element (red is associated with fire,
white is associated with metal).
Feng Shui views all
things and creatures as
part of a natural order
that is constantly mov-
ing and changing. Feng
Shui divides our never-
ending universe into
more manageable units
— like human beings
and their homes, prop-
erty, offices, living-
rooms and bedrooms.
Feng Shui allows you
to design your personal
space according to the same uni-
versal principles of energy flow that
governs the wind, fire, earth, metal
Next time you feel out of bal-
ance, look objectively to your home
and surroundings; find a way to
create inner peace through your
outer environment. Li
