Same old ‘book’ yields new lessons

Posted on 23 October 2014

Fried Dear Rabbi Fried, After meeting several atheists who described themselves as “culturally Jewish,” reading an article about an atheist (describing himself as “formerly Jewish” and vehemently advising “Jewish atheists” to drop the “Jewish” part and just be atheists), and thinking back to a college class about Judaism in America where […] Continue Reading

By Linda Wisch-Davidsohn Whenever October rolls around, I think about a plethora of things — the promise of cooler weather — the festivals — gratitude and most importantly Breast Cancer Awareness Month.

Remembering through doing and learning anew

Posted on 23 October 2014

By Harriet P. Gross How do you best remember a loved one who’s taken his permanent leave? I’ve been thinking about this a lot since my husband Fred passed away in early August. The period from that to this, not much more than 10 weeks by actual count, sometimes seems like a few days, and […] Continue Reading

By Sharon Wisch-Ray Hildring Drive East between South Drive and Altura Road has always been a nice place for a Sukkah hop (Though, I think the most spectacular sukkah belonged to the Frieds on Sarita!).

By Laura Seymour Dear Parents and Children, So often I write about books that MUST be read, and as a confirmed “biblioholic” I will always speak to the power of books. Children’s books in particular hold a special magic in their simplicity and quiet power. There is also a special magic to music. Each summer […] Continue Reading

Posted on 16 October 2014
