Title: The Shmuz on the Parsha

You've probably seen the bumper stickers, bold black letters announcing "The Shmuz." They're all over the place - Brooklyn, Queens, Monsey, Lakewood. Well, now, "the Shmuz" doesn't have to be just a bumper sticker you pass on the road. "The Shmuz" is in your local bookstore.

Changing Lanes

I am driving along in my small silver sports car. The pace of the cars around me has suddenly become frenzied; the flow of traffic has thickened considerably; I have hit morning rush hour on Toronto's busy thoroughfares. I need to merge into traffic on a very busy main road. But I am stopped, stuck, as the cars whiz past me.

But to those who have sent e-mails and letters regarding personal problems, let me assure you that I will respond to all your correspondence personally.

When Your Ex Puts Your Child In The Middle (Conclusion)

Dear Mordechai, When I decided to get a divorce, I resolved early on to take the high road. Whenever my children are in earshot, I am careful to refer to my ex in only posi­tive terms. I stick to blame-free explanations for why my marriage ended, and keep my venting phone chats with my sister, late at night, when the kids are asleep. It hasn’t been easy, and no I’m not perfect. I’ve slipped here and there, but overall, I’ve protected my children from the fallout of my feelings. Last weekend, though, my daughter returned from her mother’s house and said, “I know why you and Mommy divorced. It’s be­cause you lied to her!” Guess what? It’s not the first time. I’ve spoken to her about it, and she only defends her behavior; I don’t think she’ll ever change. Now what? (Answer, continued from last week)
