“This time I found all doors open to me; I witnessed tremendous siyata dSshmaya from the minute I landed.”

The Tishma School gained momentum and opened its doors in the Mekor Baruch neighborhood of Jerusalem in 2001. Dr. Weinstein divides his time between New York and Israel.

“Dr. Greer located the staff I needed – students of his living in Israel and Baruch Hashem we’re up and running.

“There are always the financial issues, but I keep in mind the words of the Nefesh HaChaim – Ein od bilvado – there is nothing but Him, and somehow we manage.

“Recently the bank tightened its belt and would not extend much-needed credit line. I invited the manager to come see the school. He loved what he saw and promised to do all in his power to help.

“You know, in a job like mine you just can’t help but believe…”

What’s the difference between the first and second ten-year-old?

What makes this diary so historically significant is that it is not just the private memoir of Dr. Seidman. Rather, it is a reflection of the suffering of Klal Yisrael at that time.

Rabbi Lau is a world class speaker. When he relates stories, even concentration camp stories, the audience is mesmerized. As we would soon discover, he is in the movie as well.

Each essay, some adapted from lectures Furst prepared for live audiences, begins with several basic questions around a key topic.

For the last several years, four Jewish schools in the Baltimore Jewish community have been expelling students who have not received their vaccinations.

“We can’t wait for session II to begin” said camp director Mrs. Judy Neufeld.

Q: It is unusual to find a doctor who devotes an enormous amount of energy into preventing abortions. What motivates you?

Rosh Hashanah, the start of the High Holidays, was fast approaching. I had promised myself that this year would be different. For years I have followed their activities with a mild interest, just an observer, as though their concerns were not my own, but this year, in the wake of recent media storms and false accusations, I promised myself that I would finally take a stand.

As I pushed open the doors of their rather nondescript office I took a deep breath – welcome to largest life saving industry in all of Israel – Agudat Efrat.

Those of you who feel the way I do will immediately relate to this: I hate having to listen to pedantic women discuss their Pesach cleaning before Tu B’Shevat is even a blip on the horizon.

Oh sure, people gossiped, as people always do, but Chedva was my friend, and I defended and respected her right to privacy.
