GDP & GJP Growth Trends

 GDP & GJP Growth Trends

Running“2.2% Gross Domestic Product” in glaring red letters was the headline that faced me this morning. Economists, politicians and pundits are hard at work discussing why the GDP is slowing down. Is it the President’s fault or is it Congress’s fault, is it due to Europe or is it the gas prices, or is it some other  factors which haven’t helped the GDP grow and yet worse have caused it to shrink and keep this economy at a slow growth pace.

Counting Time

Map and PinThis week I heard a radio commercial pushing a retirement financial product, in doing so they mentioned, that on average most people get to enjoy 6000 days of retirement.

By far our biggest and best ever, participants enjoyed great food, company, song, inspiration and more. The Seder's were jointly led by Rabbi Freeman of Sudbury and his father Arieh Freeman of London, UK, along with plenty readings by Seder participants and some songs and customs from around the world.

In addition Chabad of Sudbury ran a Seder at the Wingate of Sudbury for Jewish Residents and their families. The Seder was especially moving as Holocaust survivors along with family members and others shared a beautiful Passover Seder together.

While we were initially challenged on how we would fit 65 for the… Read More »
