  • A Comforting Song for Holocaust Remembrance Day

    April 20, 2015 | 2:12 pm

    During last summer’s Israel-Hamas war, I experienced what daily life is like for millions of Israelis who live within range of Hamas, Hezbollah and Islamic jihad rocket fire.  I traveled to the Jewish State from the U.S. to partake in an entrepreneurial leadership program for young...

    By Danielle Berrin

    February 25, 2013 | 4:58 pm
