The Unique Challenges of Eldercare Last month’s cover story, ‘When It’s Our Turn to Take Care of Them,’ was a real eye-opener for me. I am 50 years old and, Baruch Hashem, both my parents are alive. However, their physical and mental health has been declining rapidly as of late. The issue of eldercare and how Read More »

New York’s Next Mayor? I found last month’s cover story about former football player Michel Faulkner very interesting. It was encouraging to learn about what Faulkner plans to accomplish should he become the next mayor of New York. This city needs a mayor who will meet with the leaders of the Sephardic community to see Read More »

President-elect Donald Trump I agree with the message of last month’s cover story; I think that Trump will be a great president – especially for the Jews. Donald Trump speaks a language I understand and appreciate – one of strength. He believes in being supportive of our allies and NOT rewarding those nations that would Read More »

Saying Goodbye to Shimon Peres For the most part, I did not agree with the policies of Shimon Peres nor his way of thinking. I did however have a great deal of respect for the man.  Obviously no one is perfect, and upon one’s passing we recall their good traits and deeds, not their failings. Read More »

RENEWAL I would like to express my deepest appreciation to Renewal for the critical role their services played in my father’s recent kidney transplant. We had been searching for years to find a match for him. It was devastating to witness this once healthy and strong man become debilitated and progressively non-functional. As his illness Read More »

The Propel Network The following is a response to a letter from a reader named Helen that appeared in last month’s issue. Dear Helen, It is heartwarming to know that you - like hundreds of women in our community - feel that "Propel Network is a necessary and worthy program.” I wanted to take the Read More »

Mickey Kairey Mickey Kairey, a”h, was one of those few individuals blessed with the beautiful midda of ‘chen’ (grace or favor).  When you meet people with chen, you immediately realize there is something very special about them and usually feel spiritually attracted to them. Mickey was one of these very special people. He had the gift of making everyone around Read More »
