Veteran Chronicle reporter Kevin Fagan tells the Jewish News Weekly that …

    “When his daughter Molly, the only Jew in her class, asked why she ‘couldn’t be a Christian like Daddy,’ Fagan decided it was time to focus his ever-present yet amorphous sense of spirituality. He approached Rabbi Roberto Graetz, the spiritual leader at Lafayette’s Temple Isaiah, where the Fagans are members. ‘I said, “How do I become a Jew?” And in typically Jewish fashion, he said, “Well, it’s not easy,”‘ recalled Fagan with a laugh.”

Fagan, perhaps best known for his stories about the homeless in San Francisco, tells J-News that his faith plays an important role in his reporting. Fagan will speak at 10:30 a.m. Nov. 17 at Los Altos Hills’ Congregation Beth Am. His topic: “Reporting With Heart in a Cynical World.”
