Part VII: The End…The Beginning

The first six sections of my story have focused on my struggles adapting to a strange college environment forced on me against my will. While that story is self-contained, I thought it would be worthwhile to at least partially answer the main question my book will address: What ended up happening to me?

Prying and Prejudice

Being maligned in the international press isn't such a tragedy, what is tragic is the fact that Jews believe these lies and spew negative rhetoric against the only refuge they have should the malodorous winds of anti-Semitism blow in their direction.

Pratt Institute, Brooklyn

Question: Is Israel's release of Palestinian prisoners a constructive sign of good faith or just a futile attempt at placating its enemies?

Wedding Etiquette For Guests

It's hard to believe that June is finally here, but one look through the day's mail is enough to convince me that the school year is almost over and summer will be here before I blink. What makes me say that? The plethora of large cream envelopes, addressed in calligraphic letters, bearing stamps with pictures of creamy white roses.

Kiss Fat Goodbye

It’s hard to resist the allure of a gadget that lets you have your cake, or, in this case, your French fries, and eat it too.

Sunscreen Savvy

Glob on the sunscreen, break out the darkest chocolate you can find and let the sun shine in!

The Ohana Family – Formerly of Neve Dekalim; Now of Ein Tzurim

Fanatic Fantasies Or Purim Pleasures

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...

Relax – It’s Just Pesach

You know what’s Good Enough? Vacuuming behind the curtains is Good Enough. Taking down the curtains and washing them? That’s too much.

Your Staycation: A Top Ten List

Ahh, Winter Break. Those glorious ten days each year when the kids have vacation and hopefully, you do too. Heading off to Florida sounds pretty amazing right about now, huh? What? You're not going anywhere? Staying home? Yeah, that was us – every single year.* Affording a warm-weather vacation with a bunch of kids is pretty much out of the question for many families and this year is no exception. So instead of taking a vacation, plan a staycation.

Headlines And Hope

After two thousand years of Exile, we are still struggling to decide how a “Jewish” state should look and function.

Fit & Trim

If you normally drink zero cups a day, don’t flood your body with sudden large amounts of water.
