Why I’m at a Water Park Now

I’m at a water park with my kids. To be more exact, I’m at a water park but I’m not with my kids. I’m sitting on a bench in the shade doing my thing and my younger kids are on the water slides and splashing around in foam with their older siblings. Every half an hour or so a foam-covered Weisberg child comes to sit with me (one just sat down next to me mid-sentence😊) to eat some pretzels, drink some water, and to inform me how long the lines to the slides are (“It was better last year, there were no lines...

Happily Ever After?

I apologize for posting this ironic New-Yorker cartoon on the most romantic day of the Jewish year, Tu b’Av, but it reminded me of something important thing I heard a few years ago which completely switched how I think about marrying off children. My friend asked an older mom how you know a child is ready to get married. The older mom said, “Listen, if you wait until your child has no more issues, you will wait forever. You have issues, I have issues, all our kids have issues. Human being have issues! The question is whether your...

“In 4 Minutes We Will Drop a Warning Bomb”: A Remarkable Conversation between Israeli Forces and a Gaza Resident before Attack (Ynet)

[I was so deeply moved by this year’s Tisha b’Av movie by Rabbi Yoel Gold (at http://hashkifa.com) telling the stories of Jews who, through their undying commitment to Jewish values and ethics, uplift all of human society. That is exactly what I thought of when I read this article about how the IDF is going above and beyond to protect innocent bystanders during the current Gaza operation. This article makes me feel proud to be a Jew and an Israeli and the mother of a daughter serving in Israel’s Air Force!] Today (Sunday),...

Tisha b’Av Under Fire

Tisha b’Av Under Fire

I wasn’t really in the 9-days mode these 9 days. I was more in summer-vacation, when can-I-take-the-kids-swimming-again mode. And then on Friday morning my 20-year-old daughter got an urgent call to get to her Air-Force base ASAP. So I quickly gathered up all the food in our kitchen that could pass for Shabbat food, called her a taxi, and sent her off. It was only a few hours later that the rest of the world found out that the Breaking Dawn Operation had begun, in order to defend Israel’s residents from attacks by Islamic Jihad in...
