In the air.
And it throws us
And thrashes us.
As a bird.
Even though we are
A massive weight.
But in my heart
There is calm.
Does not effect
For I have become
A part of something
Something that keeps
And I find myself
a new me
One that I did not
One that I didn’t know
It is a journey
Than I ever
The turbulence rocks
But it does not
Because there is calm
In my soul.

Wouldn’t it be great if you had a chavrusa working with you, guiding and helping you in your work environment?
What made an M.I.T. scholarship student, taking time off from his doctorate in medicine, to backpack, and then decide to backtrack, chuck it all… and get a haircut? Perhaps it is easier to understand a Harvard law student becoming enamored with the logic of Gemara and settling down to struggle with the intellectual challenges of Aramaic acrobatics.
What do you do with fruit that has turned just a little soft and squishy and that no one in your household wants to eat?
JetBlue flew an empty aircraft from Boston to JFK to assist us. The care and concern of the flight attendants was amazing. They were astounded by our group, so much so that at the end of the flight, the captain related for all to hear that he was truly impressed by the care that the HASC counselors provided for the special-needs campers – all of whom have physical, mental, or emotional disabilities. We did our best to demonstrate a true kiddush Hashem.
Q: What does twice exceptional or 2e mean?
The battle over partnership minyans is just the latest scuffle in the war over women’s roles in the Orthodox community.
Last month’s column outlined some efforts during the first half of the nineteenth century to establish Jewish agricultural colonies in America. In only one case was a colony actually established.
According to Maimonides, the great medieval Jewish scholar, “Gifts for the poor [matanot l’evyonim] deserve more attention than the seudah and mishloach manot because there is no greater, richer happiness than bringing joy to the hearts of needy people, orphans, widows and proselytes.”

I hear a beat,
I know the sound
I feel a skip,
One that I’m used to
I see a picture,

Because I know this is real.
A poem about living with Asperger’s Syndrome.
Greetings to all, my name is Nachalah, I am a 24-year-old student. I am studying communications and graphic designing at Sapir College… Sapir College in Southern Israel is under fire, situated near Sderot and the surrounding Kibbutzim, where the bravest children in the world live.

And perhaps you can lose a few pounds too, so we can pull your resume dress size down.
In the air.
