The Classmates that Didn’t Stop Davening for the Weinbergers for 3 Decades

[After I heard the incredible story about Rabbi Fischel and Chaya Gitty Weinberger having their first child after 34 years of marriage (this photo is from the bris for their baby, Alter Yitzchok Eizik) I tried to figure out how to set up an interview with Mrs. Weinberger.

The Silence of My Daughters’ Teacher

This morning I attended an event at my daughter’s school. Among the moms in attendance was a woman who taught my older daughters in elementary school, who was a formative figure in their young lives.

The Ghost of Motherhood Future (continued)

The Ghost of Motherhood Future (continued)

A few weeks ago, on the plane home from Budapest, I found myself sitting right in front of a young couple. Maybe half an hour before landing, two flight attendants came over and stood in an anxious huddle in the aisle by the wife. And then the announcement, “If there’s a doctor on board, please…” […]
