Last Stop: Meah Shearim

Riki Goldstein

Every wife must adjust to her husband’s personality and sensitivities, but it’s a rare brave and holy woman who can cross cultural boundaries to marry into the close-knit Yerushalmi strongholds.

 

Legacy of Laughter

Malkie Schulman

If there was one way to characterize Shami (Shlomtzion) Reinman, who passed away last month at age 64, it’s that she was adored by everyone she came in contact with. For Shami, it was a thrill to dress up in a funny costume, to sing and make jokes, to create joy. That love of laughter and simchah defined her, from the time she was a young child to the pain-racked days at the end of her life.

Home sweet home… Home is where the heart is… There’s no place like home… Home, it seems, is where the clichés are. There are loads of expressions and clichés about home. And that makes sense. Language reflects human needs, and the need to find a home, to have a home, to return home is basic to us all. But just because something can be discussed in well-known, even hackneyed phrases doesn’t mean it can’t also inspire new ideas and thoughts.
