School Days
I spent close to an hour today discussing the local education system
with a friend. We have kids who are more or less the same age and went to,
pretty much, the same schools. In general, our kids didn't have the best educational
experiences. I have a friend...

What am I Doing at 3:00a.m. on Thursday Mornings?
The costumes line the streets and
Purim is in the air. It's really one of my favorite holidays, made more so by
the preparations for our community's traditional English-speaker's Tzfat PurimSphiel. I excitedly anticipate the unique mishloach manot that my S...

Where Else?
Really, where else could you go into the local pet shop 2 weeks before Pesach and ask for kosher-for-Pesach dog and cat food....and have the staff know exactly what you're talking about, have it in stock and deliver it in a few hours?  While I was there I a...

Purim 2014 Safed
Purim is always a bit of a "not really here and not really there" holiday for me. I enjoy it, anticipate it and then, when it comes, end the day with a little bit of .....really Purim? That was it? Part of the ambivalence is that I no longer have young kids...

Dan L'Kav Z'chut
Dan L'Kav Z'chut. It means, basically, giving the benefit of the doubt but it actually means more than that -- when you dan l'kav z'chut you see the good in something. I used to have a neighbor who was a world expert in dan l'kav z'chut. No matter what anyo...

Interactive, exciting, informative and amazing! "Thanks so much for letting us take your time! The boys loved every minute of your classes and were really sorry Tuesday was the last day!" T.P. Memphis "Rabbi Cohn was a wonderful speaker. He did a great job of engaging the students.. We enjoyed working with JETS and I think that we are planning another session for our high school students" E.M. Canada "It was very clear and well organized and made a real difference that they were hearing it from Israel." L.S. New York "My son really enjoyed the program and learned a great deal. It was stimulating, and engaged him both academically and enriched his Jewish identity.I think that the freedom it gave my son at this age where he naturally fights aganist rules an restraints was nice. I also think that format allowed for more intellectual growth and questioning.Yes -- I thought that the curriculum was engaging and that the format was stimulating for him to grow intellectually and Jewishly."

Perfect vacation for a couple. We enjoyed a quiet vacation interlude right next to the ocean with a stunning view and everything that we needed to enjoy a quiet get-away. Loved the rooftop deck -- we grilled some fish for dinner while we watched the waves come in.

A Tzfat treat! Beautiful self-contained unit with everything that we could have asked for to make our stay comfortable and pleasant. Everything that we needed for Shabbat, and only a 5-minute walk to the old synagogues and galleries. Friendly staff. The breakfast at the Beit Yosef Cafe was fantastic.
