Chag Sameach! We are putting the paper to bed a day early, in advance of Passover, but I am eagerly anticipating the reunion of the Wisches, Bogarts, Beckermans and Levines later. Joining us at our Seder table will be my sisters Susan Wisch and Judy Wisch as well as dear friends, Greta Beckerman, Neil Beckerman, Heidi and Michael Kirby, Ruthie and Larry Currie and son Michael Mooney, and Robin Levine Steinberg and her kids, Margot Hershman and Sonny Steinberg. Such a treat to have him nearby. Also thrilled to have my in-laws, Jordan Ray, Jane Ray, Janice Moss, Orlene Roth; cousins Barry Pierce and Richard Kahn and their daughter Sydney, as well as Maria and Scott Christiansen. Hope your time with family and friends this holiday is an enjoyable one as well.
