A 30-year-old friend is giving you flashbacks to high school. She's overly dramatic, jealous, out of control and a total energy drain. Is it worth trying to save the friendship, or is she like a bad high school boyfriend who just needs to be dumped? Miriam's Advice Well has a purpose-filled flashback.

Jews aren't supposed to proselytize, but if you know that a Catholic friend has a Jewish relative in his past, can you encourage him to explore his Jewish roots? At your parents' seder table? Miriam's Advice Well draws up a chair and dispenses some advice.

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.
