Given our deadline it’s possible that another couple hundred have been added since we went to press, but the general point has been made: A heartbreakingly familiar topic was broached, and
Last year, my family was scattered throughout the northeast prior to the AIPAC Policy Conference. My husband went to Washington on a coach bus, as the adviser to over 40 high school students, including our younger daughter, leaving New Jersey on Friday afternoon.
