When I am flush with cash, i.e. I have two bucks-a-day to splurge on food, I eat in a hole-in-the-wall Jewish deli on Second Avenue and St. Mark’s Place. I am moving up in the culinary world as I move west across the Isle of Manhattan. Here I catch abuse from the ferocious Jewish waiters. They treat everyone with […]

One body of Christ Akin to human bodies United by cells With a heart that pumps And breathes life in with rhythm In […]

Rabbinic Reflection Time from Rabbi Goodman Entering a Holy Community I was eighteen years old when I made the decision to pursue the rabbinate. As a senior in high school, I was playing with the idea of becoming a doctor, a lawyer, or a rabbi. My family likes to joke that I must have only […]

Be Brave. Lose the Beige

This weekend I spent a good portion of my time at the beach sitting under a tent where my sightline took in four shades of blue on the horizon.  Breezes from the shore made the 90 degree Florida temperatures palatable as long as the shelter of the shade protected me.  I was joined under the […]

The Chicago Jewish News

The Jewish people have a drug problem. As I’ve been saying for quite some time now, it seems like every week brings more prominent Jews bringing more profound dishonor upon the Jewish people. Indeed, I’m trying to remember the last time a prominent Jew brought honor upon us. And I really truly can’t think of […]

Instagram has given IGTV, its home for long-form video content, more prominence in the app with a new tab on Instagram’s Explore page. But despite the product tweak announced on May 16, advertisers continue to see IGTV as little more than a testing ground. Over the last year, some agencies have invested resources in IGTV. […]

Harro harro from Tokyo!! Days/weeks before I flew off for exchange, I’ve been pretty darn worried about language barrier, being homesick (bcos I’ve had some pretty bad past experiences and this is my longest trip away), etc. But Bryan has been constantly listening to my worries, calming my nerves and praying for me. Still trying […]

Ended Y2 finals on Wednesday YAY!! Y2 was really mad. There were so many instances where I struggled to get a hold of myself and everything together. It was this painful process of constantly feeling defeated and having to pick myself up and console myself and tell myself I’m okay, it’s okay, everything will be […]
