The Power of a Teacher

I had just picked up my son from his first day of school, when this beautiful woman smiled at me, then at my children, and continued on her way. A flood of wonderful memories washed over me; this woman had been my first grade teacher.

Jack Of All Trades, Master Of None (Bechorot 29 a)

There are no problems in life, only expenses. The compensation for performing a mitzvah is the opportunity to perform another mitzvah. These two truisms often conflict because, like most everything else in life, the performance of mitzvot often requires funding.

You Are Your Child’s Best Advocate

When you have a child with special needs, whether it be medical or developmental, you are very familiar with signing those lengthy privacy practice information sheets. At some point we don't even bother reading them because we know that once you have a child with special needs, nothing is ever private. Every professional has an opinion. Still, the ultimate decision is up to you.

Lain, Smartphone, Lain

As someone who lains fairly often at my synagogue, I don't consider it a big deal committing to a few aliyot every couple of weeks. I've even occasionally lained the megillah. Yet for more than 15 years, there is one Torah reading I have avoided laining at all costs: my bar mitzvah parshah.

The Need For More Marriage Education

Are we doing enough to prepare our children for marriage? I'm not talking about matters of Jewish law which couples learn about with their chassan and kallah teachers before they get married. What I'm referring to is the lack of knowledge of effective communication skills needed to make marriage successful and relationship-building tools that can enhance feelings of love and camaraderie.

Jumping In With Open Eyes

Thousands of young frum men and women in their late teens and early 20s will soon be returning from a year (or two or three) in Israeli yeshivas and seminaries, full of youthful exuberance and idealism. Many who had planned on going to college have changed their minds (often to the dismay of their parents) insisting that secular studies or employment are not for them. They want to be full time learners or the wife of one.

Our Teachers Deserve Unbounded Admiration

It often seems that it's always open season on teachers, that they are available for target practice in the form of harsh criticism or verbal and written abuse from current parents, former parents, current students, former students, administrators, lay leaders and, in the case of public education, public officials and the media.

Teenage Internet Addiction

Is Internet addiction the main cause of today's at-risk crisis? It's a topic most people shy away from, but it's one that needs to be addressed. Everyday more and more teens are getting hooked on the Internet and the effect of surfing may be taking its toll on our youth.

Blow your mind bigger and better as you improve upon preconceived ideas about the High Holidays. This slim paperback holds 87 pages full of wisdom, insight, and keys to personal improvement!

Title: Where Am I?

A sweet book for young fingers learning to turn pages, Where Am I is an introduction to literature for little ones. Familiar places and situations will delight the tots identifying them.

When Parallel Realities Are Toxic

In a recent column I suggested that a crucial component of being in a successful relationship - whether a friendship, a marriage or in the office - was the ability and willingness to validate - if not necessarily accept - another person's "take" on a particular situation.

Israeli Chief Rabbi Visits Girls Seminary

The Chief Rabbi of Israel, the Rishon L'Tzion,Rabbi Shlomo Amar, visited the Chaya Aydel Seminary in Hallandale Beach, on Thursday, January 21. Rabbi Amar spoke about the seminary year and blessed the students and teachers.

Title: Torah Tigers

Mix Dr. Seuss-type rhymes with a healthful dose of Torah values and you get two terrific things: the first being Dr. Miriam Adahan's departure from her usually adult reading fare. The second is an effective tool for teachers, therapists and rabbanim faced with community members who just don't "get it" about how to behave as menschlich parents.

Understanding Kavanah

I had recently had the opportunity to sit down with Rabbi Alexander Seinfeld, author of the new book, The Art of Kavana (Devora Publishing, July 2009) and discuss what it means to truly focus on yiddishkeit.

Title: All Hashem’s Children: Inspiring Stories about Children with Challenges

All Hashem's Children is a book in an oft-neglected genre in religious literature. It is full of inspiring stories featuring special children who overcome challenges and inspire, uplift and elevate those around them.

Tznius (Modesty) – Part I

Problems Faced Due to Compromised Tznius

Parents Should Have Same Right To Choose As Obama

For a country that has fought for thirty years over the question of a woman's right to choose, we seem to all agree that once a child is born parents have no choice. They are not allowed to send their children to the school they prefer without incurring backbreaking financial penalties.

Title: Bircas Hachammah/Blessing Of The Sun

Of all the challenges to an author and publisher of a book of this genre, none may be as great as offering this brilliantly written, multi-discipline (mathematics, physics, astronomy, hashkafa and emunah) volume to a worldwide Jewish readership, comprised of different backgrounds, hashkafos and education.

Title: A Mitzva for Zelda

A heartwarming story about a fictional lady who knitskippot for oddly shaped cartoonish heads, A Mitzva for Zelda is a good book for young readers and little listeners. It can put smiles on every face as it teaches about reciprocity and the concept of gratitude.
