Procrastinate Now

Esther Rabi

Do you tend to delay whatever you can — sometimes indefinitely? At times, that trait can work to your favor. But if you’re trying to kick the habit, don’t despair. Even the most stubborn procrastinator can develop tools to help him accomplish tasks on time.

 

Turning Tides

As told to Leah Gebber

My mother-in-law is tall and big boned, with broad shoulders. Looking at her, I’ve always thought that if I threw a rope or two around this green-and-blue globe we live on and hung it over her arms, she’d take one heave and pull it right along after her, without even letting go of her pocketbook.

 

A Place for Every Child

Malkie Schulman

Ziva Kriger touched thousands of lives — through her astute evaluations, her modestly delivered guidance, her devotion, and her love. The growth and success of the many children she touched are living testimony to the soft-spoken woman who quietly and astutely directed their development. Her passing has left a gaping hole in the Lakewood community. Ziva achieved her mission of finding a place for every child, whatever his struggles, only because she had a place, for every single one, in her heart.
