A Royal Visit to Israel

dreamstime_xs_115879788.jpgAs someone who grew up in England, I was gratified to see the first Royal Visit to Israel since 1948, with the visit this week of Prince William this week to Jerusalem, Tel Aviv and more. The last time I saw him (at an event in England when I was a child) he was just a young child, and now he seemed to carry the dignity of the Crown in good stead as he represented England so well and also honored Israel and the Jewish people in a very beautiful and dignified manner. Click here for a video of some of his remarks in which he also referenced his Great Great Grandmother who helped save Jews during the Holocaust.

Contrast this with the story of another King and a bunch of princes who we read about this week in the Torah Portion… Read More »

We are so very proud of all of our Hebrew School Students who successfully completed another great year of learning, our first in our own new center! It was truly a great way to conclude another wonderful year of of learning through the songs that were shared, the unique presentations, the art displays and so much more.

On Turning 40

XCpA7032973.jpgIn this week's Torah Portion we read about G-d deciding to have the Jew stay for 40 years in the desert. 

On a very different note,yesterday was a milestone for me as I celebrated a different forty years, my 40th birthday.

What is a Birthday?

A Birthday is a day when we remember the day we were born, which was when G-d said you matter and are integral part of his master plan. It is a day to stop and remember why we are here and how we are doing with our life mission and goals, and think about how can we better ourselves and improve what we do for the world around us.

In the Ethics of our Fathers it states what has since become a famous quote, “Ben Arboim LeBinah”, “40 years is the age of wisdom”.

The Fears and Hopes of Sending Kids Away to an Overnight Camp

CampAs summer approaches, so does day camp, overnight camp, slower paced life, vacations and more. For so many people, summer is a time to rejuvenate, refresh, spend quality time with family members and to do stuff that we might put aside the rest of the year.

Personally, while I love the constant vibrant lifestyle that we have throughout the year, and the constant  interactions, meetings, classes, programs and more, I do look forward to the summer months. It is a time when we can slow down, catch our breath, and focus a little extra on family, spend time planning another great year, and enjoy some uplifting and invigorating moments when life runs at a different pace, do extra learning and reading, and so much more.

One of the great but… Read More »
