A Learner’s Haggadah

Title: Exodus and Emancipation

Each year, at the Pesach Seder, we enumerate the kindnesses that Hashem bestowed upon our ancestors.

And Twice the Marrow of Her Bones can take you far from your expectations of a book about losing a child to cancer. The amazingly clear, honest prose can ennoble you no matter what you believe before reading the memoir. Listen as Susan Petersen Avitsour narrates - in her words and her daughter Timora's - the drama leading up to, during and beyond Timora's diagnosis.

There she raised their ten children, living a life so impoverished that she didn’t even have indoor plumbing.

A Chumash For All Times

I am from the generation that never saw or heard the Rav but lived in his shadow, feeling his recently departed presence in his students' lectures. My poverty in this sense pales in comparison to that of the next generation, who have only a distant notion of who this great man was and his sprawling impact.
