I spoke with kali Silverman, the National Director of Habonim Dror North America.
His wife, kali Evans-Raoul, runs an image consulting firm in Chicago that coaches clients on how to put their best foot forward.
a name of Devi, the Hindu mother-goddess, in her death-goddess aspect, 1798, from Sanskrit kali, literally "the black one," fem. of kalah "blue-black, black," from a Dravidian language. Also taken as the fem. of kala "time" (as destroyer). She is portrayed as black-skinned, blood-smeared, and wearing a necklace of skulls and a girdle of snakes.
