So what’s the big deal about a two and half hour plane ride when you can move to paradise?

Florida is palm trees swaying in the wind, water glistening under the sun, warm breezes and exotic flowering plants. After moving from North Woodmere, we had planned to spend every Yom Tov with at least some of our children – either having them come visit us in Boynton Beach or flying to New York or Arizona to...Read more...

Poetry
Stuck at home,
Nowhere to roam.
Want to play,
Mom and Dad say “No way!”
I’m so bored,
I won the Bored Award.
This is day one,
The rest are gonna be “soooooo much fun.”
Our school is on line,
I want to whine.
I’ve been playing solitaire,
There are too many minutes left to bear.
Soon the fun will come back again,
And that fun will never end.

Rabbi Yehuda Septimus

My sister sent me a meme that had gone viral in Israel within hours of the Ministry of Education announcing that it was closing the schools. It read: “Wait a second; you’re closing the schools with the children inside, right?”

It’s a sentiment that many parents with young children can relate to, especially now that we’ve just made it (or at least sort of made it) through our first week without...Read more...

Poetry
First came school, then came shul
Social distance became our rule.
Stocking up and settling in
A brand new age is to begin. Lots of questions without answers
In our house we’re boredom dancers.
Snacking on our Purim treats
Watching shows and then repeats.
Missing hanging with our friends
The day begins and then it ends.
But thankful that we all feel good
And praying for our...Read more...

Disclaimer: I may be wrong and I don’t know what to believe. Like this toilet paper thing. Why is it the product to stock up on? No one can explain it to me other than that it’s what everyone thinks they need to stock up on. So, I haven’t bought any, but I may be wrong (and might be soon asking if you can spare a square). And the lines for food. Is it because of the rumored military enforced quarantine that...Read more...

Rabbi Jeff Miller

Yesterday morning my mother was taken by ambulance from a walk-in-clinic to South Nassau Hospital. She had “the symptoms” for a few days already, but she was generally coping well. Until she wasn’t. When she stopped being so adamant in her refusal to get checked out, my sister, with whom she lives, knew it was time for an x-ray.

At the clinic, the staff didn’t like the way my sister looked and...Read more...

Dr. Elana Kastner

The past two weeks are continuing to be a bit of a wild ride. Thoughts are swirling in my mind about my parents, my three kids, my husband, my patients, my community. There are moments of calm and pride when I feel like we are functioning as a team to beat this pandemic into a small blip on the screen. I marvel that the speed of telecommunicating with our powerful mobile phones can rival the speed of viral...Read more...

Yaakov “Prez” Aspir

It was Shushan Purim. We had all just celebrated by hearing the Megillah and were still picking through our Mishloach Manot to find some hidden gems. We were aware of the news out of New Rochelle, but we had no idea in two days we’d make the unprecedented move to close our shul.

I went back and forth with the Rabbi as he was spending countless hours debating the halachic...Read more...
