Remembering A Dear Friend: Rebbetzin Irene Klass, a”h

7 Tevet 5772 – January 2, 2012
What is it about a diamond that makes it the most valuable gemstone known to man?

Proud To Be An American

3 Tevet 5772 – December 28, 2011
When I was young, my father, like many of his generation, frequently remarked that America was the greatest country in the world. He was an immigrant who lost almost his entire family in the Holocaust. He came here with nothing and earned everything. He treasured his American citizenship, guarding his citizenship papers like others would guard heirloom silver.

Part II: College – I Don’t Think So!

28 Kislev 5772 – December 23, 2011
Suddenly and abruptly, everything I had always known about myself no longer applied. There would be no long yeshiva career, Kollel or the like. At that point I really had no identity. I didn’t know who I was or what it was that I was going to do.

The Ins And Outs Of Visiting The Sick: An Interview With Hospital Chaplain Rabbi...

26 Kislev 5772 – December 21, 2011
Some people are naturals at visiting people in the hospital. Others feel awkward: What should I say? How long should I stay? Does the person even want me to come?

Part I: The Beginning

19 Heshvan 5772 – November 16, 2011
This wasn’t supposed to happen, especially not to me. I could give you all the stats: my great-grandfather learned in Radin with the Chofetz Chaim, my grandfathers learned in Slobodka and Novardik, and my father has smicha from Ner Yisroel in Baltimore. Outside of the brief fantasy (which lasted a lot longer than I care to admit) that I would be the star player who takes the Chicago Bears to the Superbowl, I always saw myself in yeshiva. It is what I had always planned to do, and I never really contemplated anything else

A popular performer who brings smiles to the faces of the elderly at Atria Kew Gardens, a senior assisted living home, has been recognized with an award. Anthony Soriano, known to everyone as Tony, has been honored with the Exceptional Service Award by Atria Senior Living.

Place Of Honor

8 Tishri 5772 – October 5, 2011
I have a girlfriend I'll call Esti who works for a kiruv organization. During the summer semester, this organization offered an experiential history program. They taught a subject for a week, and then the next week toured the places they discussed in order to experience history firsthand. If they studied the First Temple era, for example, they would then visit the City of David.

Title: God’s Favorite Prayers

God's Favorite Prayers, by Tzvee Zahavy, makes for fascinating reading. It is an intelligent, sometimes amusing, and always highly readable essay addressed first and foremost to those who know "everything" - those so familiar with the prayers that they don't really need a siddur to follow the service.

Survivor’s Guilt

12 Adar I 5771 – February 16, 2011
In my previous three columns (1-7, 1-21 & 2-04-2011) I wrote about my experience with thyroid cancer - a disease that I actually had twice, almost nine years apart. I was very lucky that this is a very curable carcinoma, and even more fortunate that I never felt any real discomfort or pain from the two surgeries and radioactive iodine treatments I underwent. Even when I was very hypothyroid - a prerequisite for the radioactive iodine to have the maximum affect on any cancer cells that were not removed by the surgery - I still felt fine.

When Children Fall Through The Cracks

7 Shevat 5771 – January 12, 2011
Dear Rebbetzin Jungreis, As a regular follower of your columns, I am aware you are writing about your recent journeys that took you throughout the world on a mission to bring Torah to our people. I truly appreciate the importance of your work and have personally met many people who have become Jewishly committed after hearing you speak or reading your book. Nevertheless, may I be so presumptuous as to ask you to interrupt your series and respond to my letter, which is critically urgent?

It’s My Opinion: Miracles, Wonders And Favors

23 Tevet 5771 – December 30, 2010
I'm always in a state of total shock when I view newborns. I'm in awe of the teeny size of their hands and fingers and those incredibly minuscule nails. It's totally astonishing that they are real and complete human beings - and still they can be carried with one hand.

Title: HaMalach HaGoel and Other Bedtime Stories

17 Kislev 5771 – November 24, 2010
The "Collection of Imaginative Stories" in HaMalach HaGoel and Other Bedtime Stories is a bit on the high-minded side with a few clich?s tossed in the mix. Nevertheless, the lap-sized hardcover explains to its readers how to become mature, responsible individuals of integrity. The life lessons are for children aged eight and up.

Kulinary Adventures Holds Second Tour

27 Heshvan 5771 – November 4, 2010
Gourmet mouth-watering food, top notch cooking classes, a wine and cheese tasting, and exclusive tours of a kosher chocolate factory and Manhattan's premier farmers' market were on the menu and, in its first tour, Kulinary Adventures served up these and more.

The Adventure of a Jewish Photographer: Miriam Mörsel Nathan’s Photo-Paintings

5 Heshvan 5771 – October 13, 2010
In Italo Calvino's short story "The Adventure of a Photographer," part of his collection Difficult Loves (1985), the "non-photographer" and bachelor Antonino Paraggi, finds himself increasingly alienated from his married friends who go out with their families and cameras each Sunday and "come back as happy as hunters with bulging game bags," their photographic catch of the day.

A Spiritual Night In Hebron

28 Tishri 5771 – October 6, 2010
Israel is a magical country, but to experience one of its greatest wonders you have to travel out to what the world calls the West Bank and the Bible calls Judea and Samaria.

Title: The BIG Picture: 36 Sessions to Intellectual and Spiritual Clarity

23 Elul 5770 – September 1, 2010
The BIG Picture: 36 Sessions to Intellectual and Spiritual Clarity deserves to sell at least as many copies as the Tanach. It's a classroom for spiritual growth.

15 Elul 5770 – August 25, 2010
A standing-room-only crowd of mourners paid tearful tribute Monday night to Yoseph Robinson, the beloved liquor store employee gunned down last Thursday as he tried to protect his girlfriend from a masked gunman.

18 Av 5770 – July 28, 2010
