One of Steven Ari-Z Leiner's fondest childhood memories, he says while taking a break from campaigning, is when on his 13th birthday the late Bobover Rebbe helped him put on his tefillin. The Bobover Rebbe, Rabbi Moshe Feinstein, and Maimonides are some of his heroes. Some of his secular role models include John F.

I needed Zaidy's scissors for another chore. It's a heavy, garment scissor that Zaidy Meir used when he worked as a shnaider (tailor) in the City. When he came to America with his family in 1951, he was able to get steady work although he did not speak English.

In late August, Jewish music sensation and Shlomo Carlebach/Bob Marley hybrid Matisyahu released "Light," his third album. Having enjoyed his first two albums immensely, and already humming some of Matisyahu's new tracks, I began to wax philosophical while listening to his newest compilation.

Cancer. The disease that shall not be named. Hospitals and terminal illness are often associated with the elderly, those who have already lived a joyous and prosperous life. But what if your life has just begun? What if you are only on the brink of adulthood? What if you wake up one morning and feel two hard lumps on your neck and laugh while you force your friend to feel these lumps, the teacher in the front of the room shushing you to be quiet? What if you are just an ordinary girl in class one morning and then diagnosed with cancer the next afternoon?

I thought she would be with us forever. My beloved aunt Rhoda was 101, 102 or maybe 103 when she passed. Aunt Rhoda was one of the first people to see me when I was born and I was one of the last people to see her before she passed away.
