Are you silent about the things that matter?

I recently took a JICNY group on a trip.

She had decided to teach high school math in public school. She was placed in a rough, predominantly black…See More

The Sad Reality of South Africa

The discussion always focused on which country is the best to immigrate to and how long South Africa has before some apocalyptic event such as civil war or descent into economic disaster would occur. There were always die hard optimists who saw a…See More

I am trying to use MetroImma to the best advantage, I really am. I am hoping you can help me. I would like to see who from my contacts is already on metroimma so I can "friend" them, without having to send invites to people that are not on MetroImma already. Is that possible? I would love some advice. Thanks!

I love the pics of your kids, and was so interested to read about you I have also helped start two non-profit organizations for Jewish Arts. I am on the board of ATARA, the Arts and Torah Association, we are having our annual conference on the Upper West Side this November 12 -14. It is an all women's event, hope you can come and let people know. Our web is www.artsandtorah.org, our conference is for Jewish women doing Torah inspired performing arts.

Thanks for the request, no I am not friendless! (That is a joke by the way, it is often hard to tell with no tone of voice or facial expressions.) Looking forward to the shiur on the 20th.
