A reader confesses that she still feels a twang of regret over the disgustingly cute family photo cards that friends sent over the holidays covering her fridge. Should she send a "late" card or just start planning now for December?
When friends get divorced, what should you do with all the wedding pictures you have in your home, your phone and even in public view on Facebook? More specifically, a reader asks if she should remove a framed photograph that was taken at a wedding when the now-divorced bride comes to visit.
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.
