On a Personal Note – One Reason Why I Write
“I always wanted to write
about my coming to America, where I was able to be successful.”   This quote came from an immigrant that never

The Best Way to Enjoy the Holidays – As a Family
As the opening strains of
“There’s No Seder Like Our Seder” begin, I look around the room at the family

all by myself.   Bec came home for her
trimester break and her and Debbie have gone to Florida for a few days.   I am happy that the two of them went away

We Have Done our Children a Disservice!
Do we provide a proper and
appropriate education for our children?   My girls are in college, have decided on the initial direction of their

My grandfather grew up in a
small village in Austria, today it would be located in the Ukraine.   Life might have been tough for a Jew in that
