Family Mayhem

18 Tishri 5772 – October 16, 2011
Dear Rebbetzin Jungreis: I have been a reader for many years. I realize that lately you have been focusing on very serious subjects that pertain to the very life of our people, so I do not know whether you will publish my letter, which deals with family problems. I hope, however, that you will do so, not because it will change my family situation - it is too late for that - on the chance that others might learn from it.

Obama, Netanyahu And Palestine: A Partnership In Futility And Dishonor

28 Elul 5771 – September 27, 2011
Bettelheim, like the Greek poet Homer, understands that the force that does not kill, that does not kill just yet, can turn a human being into stone, into a thing, even while it is still alive. Merely hanging ominously over the head of the vulnerable creature it can choose to kill at any moment, poised lasciviously to destroy breath in what it has somehow "graciously" allowed, if only for a few more moments, to breathe; this force indelicately mocks the fragile life it intends to consume.

It’s My Opinion: Land For Peace And Other Thanksgiving Myths

10 Kislev 5771 – November 17, 2010
America will be celebrating Thanksgiving on Thursday, November 25. Tremendous effort has always been focused on portraying this time in a lovely, romanticized light in which pilgrims and Native Americans worked together in harmony. The reality, however, is quite grim.

Snacking Right – A Tough Nut To Crack

30 Nisan 5770 – April 14, 2010
Post-Pesach many of us begin making promises to ourselves in the hopes of looking and/or feeling better. Some of the most popular wishes people share with me include: Being stricter about eating habits, losing weight, going for a checkup/special exam, and here's a big one, exercising!

What Are You Drinking This Pesach?

9 Nisan 5770 – March 24, 2010
As Pesach draws near and the wine frenzy is at its peak, anyone interested in more than just a glass of Kiddush wine may have a hard time making sense of the literally hundreds of labels available from dozens of countries. As the selection in the liquor store may be a bit overwhelming, most people pick out one or two favorites and drink them on a regular basis.

Cutting-Edge Kosher

17 Heshvan 5770 – November 4, 2009
Kosherfest, the kosher food industry's largest annual trade show, in many ways, is similar to hundreds of other trade shows held each year by every other industry across the country. A significant difference, however, is that while other shows are pointless and boring for those not involved in the industry, Kosherfest can be enjoyed by anyone who appreciates fine kosher cuisine.

Aleh: Caring For My Little Grandson And So Many Others

13 Elul 5769 – September 2, 2009
There is a very special place in Jerusalem many people have heard of - but how many really know the magnitude of its work? In fact, Aleh is often confused with another facility with a similar sounding name. But Aleh stands alone in its class. Unlike other places, Aleh accepts children who have no chance of rehabilitation, and all the children receive the same loving care.

Seventy Years Since The German Invasion Of Poland

6 Elul 5769 – August 26, 2009
September 1, 1939 is the date on which Germany invaded Poland, starting WWII. While it should be said that the start of the war was not the start of the Shoah, which actually began with the rise of Nazism in 1933, it was a major milestone in the annals of the Holocaust. Within the first few days of the war, Germany had conquered and/or bombed much of Poland, including the capital, Warsaw.

Circle Of Friends: A Group For The Single Woman

23 Tammuz 5769 – July 15, 2009
When you lose your spouse, whether s/he was sick or healthy, whether it's through divorce or death, the transition period into the next part of your life is a difficult one. Many new singles find that they no longer fit into their old friendships. They are no longer part of a couple, so associating with couples can be uncomfortable.

Gush Katif Envoy Returns From U.S. Visit

7 Nisan 5769 – April 1, 2009
Three-and-a-half years ago, the Israeli government expelled 8,800 Israeli residents from Gush Katif and destroyed their homes. Despite the residents' sadness and anger, they thought the worst was behind them; that they would have a chance, should they desire it, to start anew in communities and homes the government promised to provide them.
