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.

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

Hebrew Academy students learn the ABC’s of safety during Hebrew Academy’s recent Safety Kid Program.

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

Women learn in honor of first yahrzeit of Rebbetzin Chasia Kudan, a”h.

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 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.

I’m here to sit next to you and help you through this Purim with three almost-too-easy mishloach manot ideas, all made with cost-conscious paper bags.

Kids want to be like their friends, and they want to give and get “normal” mishloach manos stocked with store-bought treats.

Whenever he did anything loving for me, I made a big deal about it.

“OMG, it’s so cute, you’re so cute, everything is so cute.”

A program that started with a handful of volunteers has grown exponentially to include students from a wider array of backgrounds.

Tutor. Counselor. The doctor too,
Sometimes it’s hard to keep up with you.

Recently, due to age and wear, programming and NCSY events were moved into portable units outside the youth building.
