Please Join LeKedoshim: Honoring Israel’s Fallen Soldiers

Tonight will be my 1st Yom HaZikaron as the mother of an IDF soldier. Maayan is not a combat soldier, but many of her friends are. I am awe-inspired by these 19-year-old boys, their idealism, their good hearts, their selfless determination to give up 3 years of their lives (or more) in order to protect the Jewish people from its enemies in the Holy Land. Israel stands on the shoulders of our soldiers, and, sadly, many of our greatest heroes are no longer with us; they gave up their lives for us to live in the Jewish homeland as Jews in safety...

Yom HaAtsmaut and my Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Day

On the night of Yom HaShoah I was in a crummy mood. I was feeling down because it was Yom HaShoah and on top of that I’d had a blow up with a family member at the end of Pesach. I later found out (from Rabbi Nivin who speaks with many people as a life coach) that most people have major blowups with family members over Pesach,and that made me feel much better. But on Yom HaShoah I didn’t know that yet. So I was still in a crummy mood about that. And down about Yom HaShoah. I decided to go on a long walk with my headphones on. I...

Rabbi Lau and Rabbi Katz: The Sons of 2 Boys from Buchenwald

A few weeks ago I attended my last siddur party for my youngest child. It turned out to be the final siddur party as well for Rabbi Shmuel Katz, who is retiring after 34 years as school rabbi. It was clearly a bittersweet event for him and for me as well. All but one of my children have attended the same school, which has girls and boys divisions, so that was my 7th siddur party with Rabbi Katz. The end of an era for both of us. About half way through the party, music started playing and everybody stood up in honor of the arrival of...

A Bride and Groom’s Apartment-Hunting Miracle

I told you a few weeks ago that my oldest daughter, Hadas, made her first shidduch between her university classmate and the son of our close family friends. And this past Shabbat the happy engaged couple came over to say hello. When I asked Hallel and Hovav where they’re planning to live, Hallel told me excitedly they’d found an incredible apartment: large, beautiful, centrally-located, and cheap! A small miracle in Jerusalem’s pricey and competitive real-estate market. And then Hallel proceeded to tell me the incredible...
