The Hays Family Of Westchester County

17 Heshvan 5773 – November 1, 2012
Early American Jewish history is unfortunately replete with examples of observant families who came to America and, within a relatively short period of time, not only abandoned much of their commitment to religious observance but even had the sad experience of having some of their children intermarrying and assimilating. One family that did not follow this trend was the Hays family.

In Defense of Hilltop Youth and the Left Alike

26 Tishri 5773 – October 11, 2012

Matana’s Gift

17 Tammuz 5772 – July 6, 2012
It was the Thursday before her daughter's wedding and Chana Bendiner had so much to do, so many minute details to attend to. Yet here she was in her attic, blowing the dust off a photo album that had remained buried, but not forgotten, for over 20 years. She stared at the leather-bound cover, gently caressing the embossed gold lettering, unable to open it, yet unable to put it down.
