Caring For Bubbie – A Privilege

27 Sivan 5771 – June 29, 2011
Dear Rebbetzin Jungreis: My mother lives with me and needs a great deal of attention, as do my four children. It seems as if everyone is pulling at me at once, and I don't know in which direction to turn first. All this stress has definitely affected my mental and physical health. I suffer from backaches and stomach trouble and lack the patience necessary to be a good wife and mother.

The Tony Award

14 Iyyar 5771 – May 18, 2011
I never really cared for Tony Kushner. To bestow an honorary award to a notorious Israel critic, especially by academia, is nothing new. Honorary awards and Nobel Peace Prizes seem to be increasingly synonymous with, at best, meaningless efforts, and, at worst, anti-Semitism as a prerequisite for the recipient.

29 Shevat 5771 – February 3, 2011

Bubby

1 Tevet 5771 – December 8, 2010
The Gemara in Sanhedrin, Daf Mem Zayin, Amud Alef, concludes that a hesped or eulogy is in honor of the deceased, and not the living, so as such even though I am not worthy of being maspid you, I will say something nevertheless.

"Building From Bottles" is a community-wide endeavor orchestrated by Avigail Borah, an 11-year-old from Hewlett, NY.

Jewish Heritage Month A Well-Deserved Honor

21 Sivan 5770 – June 2, 2010
When I was a kid, the prospect of catching polio was terrifying. We could not dive into a public swimming pool for fear we would spend the rest of our lives in an iron lung. Two Jewish doctors vanquished that disease and removed such fears forever.

75th Anniversary Reunion

2 Nisan 5770 – March 17, 2010
Israel Independence Day is a national holiday in Israel. This year it falls on Tuesday, April 20th and is celebrated either publicly or within the family circle. The ceremonies begin eight days earlier with Holocaust Memorial Day. One week later, we commemorate Israel's fallen soldiers and terror victims on Memorial Day. As the sun sets, the national flag is raised from half-mast, the music begins to play, and the festivities begin in honor of Israel's 62nd anniversary.

The Heroes Among Us

18 Sivan 5769 – June 10, 2009
In 1943, a Bulgarian baker named Rubin Dimitrov was at work in his Sofia shop when he saw Jews running from the police. He saved a group of them from a deportation roundup by hiding them in his oven. When asked about the incident, Dimitrov modestly replied, "One couldn't sit idly by, arms crossed, doing nothing. A true human being is obliged to help . So, I opened the door of my bakery oven to hide these people."

I Am Saddened (Part Three)

4 Sivan 5769 – May 27, 2009
In my last two columns I published a letter from a mother/grandmother who felt very saddened and discouraged at the shameless chutzpah that marks today's parent-child relationship. In the first segment of her letter, she cited the disrespectful conduct of children, and in the second, she gave examples of the deplorable behavior of young adults - even married couples.

A Mom Like No Other

19 Iyyar 5769 – May 13, 2009
Remembering Rebbetzin Lillian Chomsky On Her First Yahrzeit

Yizkor – Remember Your Pledge

29 Nisan 5769 – April 22, 2009
The shul was packed for Yizkor service. For Mr. Reuven Black this year was particularly poignant; it marked the tenth Yahrzeit of his father, who had passed away shortly after Pesach. He had decided to do something special in memory of his father.

The Day He Moved The Pope’s Heart An Interview with Cantor...

He certainly didn't waste any time. Cantor Chaim Adler began his chazzanut career at age 10; today, he is known as "the chief cantor of Tel Aviv" and one of the most prominent cantors in the world.

Stuff My Father Won’t Tell Me: Struggling To Do the Right...

11 Tevet 5769 – January 7, 2009
It wasn't so much my father's problem as it was mine. The commandment to honor one's parents had always been for me simply the right thing to do. Jewish tradition characterizes it, however, as the most challenging of the taryag mitzvos. Anyone who has ever cared for a terminally ill parent appreciates the difficulty of performing this mitzvah well.

Leadership

13 Kislev 5769 – December 10, 2008
As Yaakov makes his way back to the land of Canaan, several events - spanning the full range of emotions - transpire in rapid succession.
