I guess I am all of these!Those of you who know me probably think of me as a responsible, capable and passionate person who can do whatever she puts her mind to. Those who know me a little more know that I am actually quite shy, and I really have to leave my comfort zone to be a public personality. I guess I am like a musician who can perform on stage in front of a crowd even though naturally shy. People who know me…See More

My Aliya Journey - the 101 things I wish I knew before

Standing in a very long line to get my phone registered so that it could work while exploring Ethiopia made me realize just how efficient and first world Israel actually is.  Now, to be clear,  I am not suggesting that I have gotten used to Israeli bureaucracy it’s just that relative to Africa things are MUCH better.When I first made aliya some people told me it would take 3 years to settle in. Others said 7 years and some said 20 years. Now that I am 3 ½ years into the journey I guess I have…See More

The Real People

I have this mental vision of Caila’s days at school - it’s of someone standing on tipped toes and stretching their arms out. The person does this for hours on end. I am pretty sure this describes Caila’s experience trying to keep up in an inclusion environment.Many professionals have told us over the years that Caila should also engage with people who have special needs as well. Twice a week she attends an afternoon program with kids who mainly have Down syndrome. She also has been going to…See More

The past few weeks have been busy for my children and all their peers involved in the Bnei Akiva Youth Movement. My kids eagerly wait for Chodesh Irgun - the month when the leadership transitions to the next group of 15 year old madrichim. The whole month is defined by fun activities and the culmination of this excitement and sleep deprivation is a big weekend that goes from Thursday night to Sunday morning.Our local Bnei Akiva recently started a group for people with special needs called…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.
