National Mourning and Tammuz

The Hebrew month of Tammuz which began this past Shabbat is a month that holds within it sadness and destruction. The seventeenth of Tammuz (observed this year Tuesday July 15) is a fast day commemorating the breaching of the walls of Jerusalem by the Romans. National mourning is observed and mourning rituals continue until Tisha Continue Reading »

I Love Jewish Overnight Camp

I love going to camp but really, what’s not to love?! Cabins with your friends, loud music in the hadar ochel, cute Israeli counselors, Shabbat song sessions, trips to Hersheypark, Yom Yisrael, boating on the lake, and I’m just getting started. It was wonderful to spend some time catching up with our Chizuk Amuno and Continue Reading »

The Walls are Talking

If you have been in the Schechter lobby recently you might have heard the walls talking. For the past weeks parents, students, alumni, faculty and community members have been painting murals on the walls in honor of Krieger Schechter’s 30th anniversary. I’ve been keeping “paint clothes” in my office so that I can come and Continue Reading »

Why Did God Put the Tags in Back?

God has been a frequent topic of conversation in our house. It started a few weeks ago when my almost five year old daughter pointed to my head and said, “What’s that?” “That’s my hair.” I replied. “No that, next to your head.” I explained that it was the place where your hair comes out Continue Reading »
