With snow day after snow day lately, your boss' habit of bringing her 5-year-old to the office for entire days at a time has become even more frequent. What, if anything, can you do to address this?

Flabbergasted after seeing sexist dating tips on a Jewish outreach website, a reader wonders how people can still give such old-fashioned advice and whether there's a good way to refute it other than joining the existing angry mob of online commenters.

Profile

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.
