The Lifetakes by Sarah Fink was a piece of art and a thought-provoking read. What a respectful and beautiful way to view old age! Sometimes we forget to see past its limitations, and miss the “sophisticated wit and profound insight” that come with the territory. Thanks for a refreshing, poignant, and fantastic piece.

Lifetakes: Flashbacks /Family First Issue 589
As for us, moving to Germany is not about fueling the German economy or making a gesture of reconciliation after the Holocaust. It’s about the 75 families and 150 children in the kindergarten. It’s about the 30 or so people who now have whom to learn night seder with, and a structured learning program on Sunday mornings for the whole community. It’s about the opportunity to hopefully inspire while being inspired by people who gave up everything in pursuit of HaKadosh Baruch Hu and his Torah.
