Sowing Success

Riki Goldstein

A formerly barren schoolyard now lush with produce. A little girl buoyed by the prospect of a better future. Robin Katz and Start-Up Roots are using simple ingredients — water and vegetables — to transform lives.

 

Games and Gowns

Barbara Bensoussan

The “freezer” is opening, and dozens of boys are now available. They, and their potential dates, all stand to gain from Joy Lieber’s innovative dating game. And once they’ve reached their goal of an engagement, Joy is there to keep on helping, with a full-service tzniyusdig bridal salon. Meet the woman behind the joy.

 

Fundamental Connection

Rebbetzin Debbie Greenblatt

Marriage, in a sense, also produces. If we are blessed, it produces the next generation. The entity of marriage is itself a product. As I once heard from Rabbi Dovid Gottleib: The equation of marriage is “i plus i equals I” — the entity itself is more than the sum of the parts. If we are wise and dedicated, marriage can also produce a better version of each individual in the relationship.
