What I Love About Israel

It’s been surreal being here through the sirens. After each siren I marvel how people just continue with life. It so Israeli – and I can only imagine the contrast in any US city if there was just one rocket. The city would be in lock down with mass hysteria.There are many more subtle things that I appreciate too. This issue closest to my heart is how much more integrated special needs people are in society. I only have to reflect on my experiences dealing with summer camp. The answer is simply…See More

This is My Dream for Caily

The world is small and HaShem works in mysterious ways. We have been coming to Israel for many years and renting the same apartment each summer. When Caily was born I was referred to Aish.com to read an article about a family who have a daughter with Down syndrome. The apartment has a guest book and I realized the names in the guest book were the same as the family. I reached out to the mom and she has been my guide since. Choosing the inclusion…See More

Reflecting on inclusion

As the school year ends I look at Caily with so much pride, she has achieved so much. Inside I tremble with fear. I have always known that the younger years were going to be easier.

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.
