Modeh Ani – A Prayer of Thanks

17 Av 5771 – August 17, 2011
Dear Readers: Everywhere you turn, it seems that people are beset with so many problems and worries; some are financial in nature, some revolve around social issues like shidduchim and marriage, some involve setbacks and losses, and the non-actualization of the vision we had of how the days of our lives would play out.

As we approach Tisha B'Av, followed by Shabbat Nachamu, we should take the lesson of the collective need for ahavat Yisrael that we are so painfully aware of.

The Single Aunt

18 Tammuz 5771 – July 20, 2011

The Wheel of Change

20 Sivan 5771 – June 22, 2011
Dear Readers: The Torah revolves around one simple concept - treating others in the way you would want to be treated. The following poem gives a glimpse as to why.

‘Will Ema Come Home?’

28 Iyyar 5770 – May 12, 2010
Dear Readers, As a change of pace, I wrote a short story with the hope that it might provide some insight as to how young children can assess ordinary situations in a way that may be surprising to grownups.
