    I love writing my blog and being a part of the Jewish Journal family.  Some days I write just for me.  It is cathartic and feels good.  I imagine that nobody is reading it, and those who are won’t care that much.  Other days I know I will hit a nerve or touch a heart, and I love... read on

    I had a date this weekend with a man I met on Match.com.  He seemed like a lovely man and I was attracted to his relationship with his children.  It did not hurt that I thought he was gorgeous.  He was so handsome that the moment he walked up I did not understand why he was on a date... read on

    Every single day, including this Memorial Day, someone will die or be injured while serving this country on our behalf.  It is our duty, to remember that today is about the troops, past and present, and not just about a BBQ or day off from work.  It’s important to take a moment and... read on
