Letter: Planning our Family

While visiting my ailing mom in Brooklyn, just a few months before her untimely passing, I shared with her the exciting news that Chavie and I were going to adopt a second baby. She pondered the idea that we’d have adoptive Irish twins, thirteen months apart, and after a few moments, she gave me her loving motherly look and asked “Why so quick? What’s the rush”? I’m still uncertain where my answer came from, perhaps directly from my soul: “Mom”, I said, “I thought we don’t believe in family planning!”. She smiled, accepted it, and shared my witty comeback with whoever would listen.

Picture of the Day: Sailor’s Bar Mitzvah in Times Square

A group of students from Texas A&M, State University and Rice University are in New York City to participate in the Jewfest Shabbaton, Chabad on Campus’ annual convention. As they toured Manhattan on Friday, they bumped into four sailors who were giving out floral bouquets in honor of Veteran’s day. The group thanked the sailors for their service, and discovered that one of the sailors had a Jewish maternal grandmother. They proceeded to help him put on Tefillin for the first time in his life, and danced together to celebrate.
