Friendship: A Tribute To My Dear Friend Irene Klass, z”l


An unlikely friendship we formed


Hard to define or explain


Never bound by rules or age


Rather by mutual ideas and thoughts

 

Trading ideas on current events


Lively discussions, sharing our views


Exchanging deep sighs


As we heard the news


And each dire report


Of another terrorist onslaught


Or sending me in search


Of an enlightening interview

 

Exciting me to compose uplifting prose


On birth and joy


Encouraging me to write


That poignant story


Of pathos and tragedy

 

A breadth of topics


Rich in their range, we shared


A meeting of minds


A collaboration of souls

 

Amazement upon her recitation


In perfect, rhythmic time


Of one of her prolific poems


Brimming with pearls of torah


And wisdom


Pathos and hope


Brilliant erudition

 

Mesmerized by her sharp mind


And clear portrayal


Awed by her unhesitating


Flawless delivery

 

At her behest – I transform


Some of her prose to song


And with her joie to vivre


And constant joy of discovery


She is elated


By this new transformation

 

Eternally young in spirit


And sense of adventure


Ever honest and steadfast


In her set of beliefs

 

Our was a friendship


I shall ever cherish


Steeped in humor


Deep in thought


Memories – of Irene


And a myriad lessons taught.

There is a point that many parenting books miss: children do more for us than we do for them.

The husband needs to make some changes!

Purim is a fantastic time for fantasies, so I hope you won’t mind my fantasizing about how easy life would be if kids would prefer healthy cuisine over sweets. Imagine waking up to the call of “Mommy, when will my oatmeal be ready?”… As you rush to ladle out the hot unsweetened cereal, you rub […]

One should not give the money before Purim morning or after sunset.

The mishloach manos of times gone by were sometimes simple and sometimes elaborate, but the main focus was on the preparation of the delicious food they contained.

One of the earliest special Purims we have on record was celebrated by the Jews of Granada and Shmuel HaNagid, the eleventh-century rav, poet, soldier and statesman, and one of the most influential Jews in Muslim Spain.

Jews, wake up! Stop educating the world and start educating yourselves.

The lessons conform to the sensitivities and needs of the Orthodox community…

The program took on special significance as it marked not only the first anniversary of Rebbetzin Kudan’s levayah but also the 27th yahrzeit of Rebbetzin Chaya Mushka Schneerson, a”h.

It was only in the reign of George III (1760-1820) that Jews became socially acceptable in Britain, and Nathan became music master to Princess Charlotte and musical librarian to King George IV.

It captures the love of the Jewish soul as only Shlomo Hamelech could portray it – and as only Rabbi Miller could explain it.

Erudite and academic, drawing from ancient and modern sources, the book can be discussed at the Shabbos table as well as in kollel.
