    I like the new acronyms and euphimisms for non-denominational jews that consider themselves believers or traditional in some form or another. I maybe fall into the category of Dati Lefaamim "Datlaf" I am most definately in the "Mitchazek" category. I am not Shomer Shabbos as Walter (John Goodman from the Big Lebewski would put it) " I do not roll on Shabbos, Shomer Shabbos", but I do agree with the reasoning behind all the restrictions, I am just not accustomed to following them every weekend, ALTHOUGH this past Yom Kippur fell on Shabbat and I was a good boy and a good Jew, I fasted for Yom Kippur and observed Shabbat completely since I was in Temple praying, almost all day. I felt great afterwards, I understand the merits of these restrictions, they enhance spiritual awareness and enjoyment, in the meantime I am still Mithazeking. Yom Kippur is never negotiable though.
