The Jew News Review – June 18, 2022 – A Mel with a wrench

Shabbat shalom everyone! Quick shout out to our beloved Boston Celtics, a young but great basketball team that lost to a better team this year, but a Celtics team I am sure will bring us more joy and a championship flag or two in the near future.

The Jew News Review – June 4, 2022 – Fluffy, not stuffy

Shabbat shalom! Hey! And happy Shavuot everyone! For those that need a refresher, as I did, Shavuot is the celebration of the delivery of the Torah to Moses on Mt Sinai.

The Jew News Review – May 28, 2022 – A Modest Proposal

Shabbat shalom. A tough and tragic week for the country, a horrific one for the friends and families of those children and teachers that were brutally assassinated in the Robb Elementary School.

The Jew News Review – May 21, 2022 – “Replace them all!”

Shabbat shalom!  The skies are gray here in New England, and a heat wave is moving in over the eastern seaboard.

The Jew News Review – May 14, 2022 – “There are judges in Jerusalem”

Shabbat shalom to all my JNR friends! Well it seems as though the mysterious man behind the curtain decided to flip the New England weather switch and turned the dial to the summer setting before we could even get used to spring temperatures.

The Jew News Review – April 30, 2022 – Never forget

Shabbat shalom!  It was a busy week caring for the world’s most adorable grandchild, and ended with a haircut and a therapeutic massage, so no complaints from me. It’s been rather cool here in Sharon weather-wise, but as I gaze out the JNR office this morning, I am loving the spray of violet myrtle blossomsContinue reading “The Jew News Review – April 30, 2022 – Never forget”

Shabbat shalom! I hope everyone had a great Passover!
