Work and Work – Part 2 – Parshat Pekudei
Synonyms. They can be lovely. They can be irritating. For those among us who are logophiles (lovers of words - though perhaps, also, lovers of meaning and, yes, logotherapy), we love to play with synonyms and look up in the dictionary and thesaurus to see what other possibilities there are. You see, the thesaurus is not just a book to be used when writing papers. It can be a fun book.
So, in Pa …

It's Not Fair – Parshat Ki Tissa*
When I was growing up, child care was something your mother did and nursery schools weren’t so prevalent. So, I spent my days at home with my mom and she made sure I had everything I needed. But one day, I noticed my older brother was going to school. I don’t think I had any idea what it was but it meant he was going somewhere. I do remember crying about not being allowed to go to school. It was …
