So, how are you feeling?

Shayna Friedman

By the time you are reading this, summer is well underway. If you are up in the country or camp, perhaps you are having a blast and feeling great. Maybe you are feeling lonely or bored. This time of the year also means the Three Weeks, bringing feeling of sadness and loss. Feelings are a large part of our experience, affecting the way we behave and even the way we think. Come journey into this complex inside world and who knows? What you read might even change how you feel about feelings.

Who was the gadol known as the American Chofetz Chaim? Don’t know? Here’s a hint. He helped thousands of Jewish kids he never even met. Still don’t know??? Then let me tell you about an American gadol who didn’t live so long ago — about the time when your zeidy was young.

 

Accepting

Malka Katzman

“Who wants noodles?” “ME!” the unanimous cry comes from around the table. I count again; I think I had a mistake before. There’s Shloimy, Sarala, Liba, Naomi, Ari, Elchonon, Tzippy, Mendy, Shany, Chezky, Yochie, wait — who just slunk out of their seat? Oh, well, I lost track again.
