What do you send to a family reunion...when you're not part of the family?


What should a professor do when a former student gives him a gift for writing letters of recommendation?


Miriam weighs in on the new ruling in the Conservative movement allowing legumes to be eaten during Passover. It's more interesting than it sounds.

Miriam gives advice to a woman who isn't ready to "meet the parents" after only two dates. 



I am extremely proud to be a part of making the Philadelphia Jewish community the best it can be.

I am a co-founder of Minyan Tikvah (a lay-led prayer group in Center City Philadelphia that meets once a month for traditional egalitarian Shabbat services), a founder of a former matchmaking service for Jewish graduate students, a children’s book reviewer, a former elementary school teacher, a pretty decent cook and a mom to two beautiful children.

I spent years as the director of Hillel of Greater Philadelphia’s Jewish Graduate Student Network before resigning to spend more time with my family. My husband, Marc, likes to say that I knew more people within a week of moving to Philadelphia than he knew after six years here.

I’m originally from the tiny town of Fredonia, NY, and sometimes I still stare at the skyscrapers and marvel at how many Jews I know.
