As we walked, I told her how I had hoped for the chance to thank her for her amazing visit.

Kaddish For My Father

When my father died suddenly when I was newly married there was no one who had to say Kaddish for him. I am one of four daughters and he had no brothers.

Mommy, please don’t be so sad. Here in the next world Hashem Yisborach’s plan is much clearer.

A Fine Lawyer

She was determined that the Law class was Dina’s best chance of finding a husband, and that was the real reason she wanted her to go to college.

So why was she forever unceremoniously dumping them in the library after the long school day was over and virtually all the other students and staff members had already gone home?

The Apartment Locator

Several months ago, I made a serious effort to find an apartment in the "better" area but, alas, the rents were too high. I felt that I was stuck where I was.

Girl Of Valor

“My mother raised us to independence, all of us,” Rivka says, which certainly plays itself out in the fact that all three children have taken a different path.

Miracles Large And Small

Surprisingly, my husband and one son arrived home over half-an-hour earlier than usual. I excitedly shared my perfect-timing story, but my better half one upped me easily.

This young, innocent child gave me a powerful, warm surge of energy and strength.

In contrast to her Eicha-like lamentations of the previous hour or more, however, my youngest was now grinning from ear-to-ear.

The Locked Door

“The window is above the flat sukkah roof,” he reported. “I could definitely climb in, but I need a ladder...”

The Power Of Chesed And Tefillin

Needless to say, it was done and they formed a great relationship as his friend and mentor. He started attending services and volunteered his time all along putting on tefillin.
