Change written in sky one October day

Posted on 19 October 2017

Before October 2017 becomes history, I’m looking back at several of this month’s important dates. Two are closely related, because both have to do with the discovery of America.

Posted on 19 October 2017

Dear Families, Many years ago in Dallas, all the Jewish educators sat around a big table to discuss the needs for Jewish education in our community.

Columbus Day not what it used to be
