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

Shabbat shalom to all my JNR friends!

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.

Shabbat shalom! Shout out this week to Ketanji Brown Jackson, who was confirmed as the first black female Supreme Court Justice this week.
