The Holocaust Grandchild

12 Iyyar 5769 – May 6, 2009
My mother's recent yahrzeit after Pesach, coupled with Yom HaZikaron and recent Yom Tovim and Shabbatot spent with my children and grandchildren, has cemented my belief that I was robbed of a major life asset - my grandparents. While I knew that having them was a life-enhancing relationship, I didn't truly comprehend it until I became one.

Slim Down for Summer

5 Iyyar 5769 – April 29, 2009
We are back to that time of year again. The winter clothes are going to the back of our closets and the summer clothes are starting to come out. This is the time to make changes, so we will be prepared for summer.

Helping Children Cope With Trauma

8 Adar 5769 – March 4, 2009
Dear Rabbi Horowitz: Our family is recovering from the terrible, unexpected loss of a loved one who passed away far too young. My husband and I have differing views on seeking professional help to help our children cope with the tragedy. (Thankfully, at least on the surface, they all seem to be doing well.) I am strongly in favor of seeking this help, while my husband, who is an amazing father and has been our bedrock throughout this ordeal, thinks that we should leave well enough alone and not subject our children to the agony of pouring their hearts out to a stranger. We are regular readers of your columns and recently re-read your "Open Letter to Teens Who Lost a Parent," where you very clearly encourage them to seek help if they are having difficulty dealing with their grief. But what if they don't seem to be exhibiting any such signs? We would greatly appreciate your thoughts on this matter. Respectfully, Susan

The Lament Of The Unborn Children

17 Shevat 5769 – February 11, 2009
I wrote a version of the poem below many years ago, before the term "shidduch crisis" came into vogue.

A Day in the Life of A TIME:

10 Shevat 5769 – February 4, 2009
A TIME is widely recognized and venerated as the nation's leading organization to offer support, advocacy, education, guidance and referrals to Jewish couples struggling with infertility. In order to accurately portray all that A TIME accomplishes on any given 24-hour period, I decided to spend a day with them and take note of the goings on. As an inconspicuous observer, I watched in awe and amazement as this group of special individuals took on all the daunting aspects associated with infertility.

When What Looks Like Dementia Is Really Something Else

3 Shevat 5769 – January 28, 2009
The moment we can't remember where we put our keys, or the few seconds it takes to try to remember where we parked our car causes fear in everyone that I know who is over 50.

The Chabad Cookbook – The Most Prized in My Collection

22 Kislev 5769 – December 19, 2008

The Light After The Dark

21 Heshvan 5769 – November 19, 2008
Many of us, especially those who are in mid-life, have weathered certain "storms" in our lives - some easier to cope with and "get over" than others.

Dear Dr. Yael

17 Tishri 5769 – October 16, 2008
Dear Dr. Yael, I think it is imperative that you print this letter because this is an ongoing problem in many families. In these families, the children stay in their parents' summer home for the entire summer, and everyone is supposed to live happily under one roof. This can get difficult if a brother-in-law picks on his sister-in-law or vice versa. This past summer my brother-in-law called me names, causing many hurt feelings.

It’s How You Look At It

24 Elul 5768 – September 24, 2008
It's hard to believe Rosh Hashanah is just days away. It seems like we were just putting away our Pesach dishes and hoping that the looming summer months would not be too unbearably hot and humid.

When What You Can Do Changes (Part III)

19 Av 5768 – August 20, 2008
Well spouses need to re-evaluate often their situation and how they are relating to their loved ones.

‘Watch Over The Souls Of Your Children’

6 Tammuz 5768 – July 9, 2008
My last two columns dealt with the biblical injunction that we "watch over our souls."

See What Happens When You Don’t Pay Attention?

4 Nisan 5768 – April 9, 2008
I'm not quite ready yet to shut the door on Purim. Perhaps it's my way of avoiding dealing with Pesach, and the physical and emotional effort that comes with it.

There Is No ‘Road Not Taken’

28 Adar I 5768 – March 5, 2008
The poem "The Road Not Taken" by renowned American poet Robert Frost expresses the gnawing curiosity that a traveler knows he will always have about the road that he didn't take.

Title: SNAPSHOTS In Memory of Ben

9 Shevat 5768 – January 16, 2008
The unthinkable tragic death of one's child is a topic most of us find difficult to embrace.

Reflections On The Eighth Yahrzeit Of Rabbi Sholom Klass, zt”l

2 Shevat 5768 – January 9, 2008
The years move forward and your eighth yahrzeit (10 Shevat) will soon be here, my dear father.

Not All Mourners Sit Shivah

11 Kislev 5768 – November 21, 2007
In a family, where chronic illness lives, there are many caregivers. There is, of course, the well spouse.
