It started with the kugel. When my beloved Aunt Lila began having swallowing problems due to her Parkinson’s, Beth Mayerich, catering director, made special portions of her fabulous kugel for Lila that were right-sized for her, delicious and easy to swallow. It may seem like a small gesture, but it had a huge impact on someone who loved to eat but was very limited in her choices. It became standard fare for quite a while and even was a Hannukah gift one year.
A message from The Masorti Movement / Rav Siach Program
The carnage and bloodshed in Syria continue without end. Men, women and children are being slaughtered, and it is difficult to remain indifferent to the horrendous sights. We must raise our voice in protest, send letters to our representatives, reach out and support organisations which are on the ground helping the victims. however we are also a community of prayer. We invite you to join Masorti congregations across Israel this coming shabbat and recite the following prayer with your own congregation,and until the day when our neighbors will be able to experience peaceful times once more.

Getting up and out of the house by 10 on a Sunday morning requires some extra effort on my part. I’m writing this blog because I want to share with other readers an activity that I highly recommend go on their future calendars.
Those of us who enjoy reading and group discussions got the opportunity to expand their connections with others and engage in a lively discussion. Since no two people read a book exactly the same, the book club experience is always rich. And then to have the author discuss it along with us and openly answer questions, that’s a big bonus. A shout-out to Julie Carpenter for arranging for the author to join us.
