The Three ‘I’s of Effective Leadership

What’s in a letter? When it comes to leadership, quite a bit.

The letter “I” expresses our essence. It represents who we are and how we choose to show up each day.

When we refer to ourselves in this way, as in “I am” or “I did,” we make

Hillside-Elizabeth Bids Farewell to Neshama Tehila Heller, z”l

“My Little One,” was composed and written by Neshama Tehila Heller, and conveyed in silence to her father, Ira Heller, who performed the moving composition at Madison Square Garden in March of 1998.

The Letter I Wish I’d Written: In Memory of Irene Hizme, z”l

If I could write a letter to one of my favorite people in the world it would go like this.

I’m just sad I never wrote it to her before she passed away.

My daughter’s camp started earlier than many others so I read the Glicks’ article after my daughter had left. I am blessed with a daughter who had me returning

Swimming by Mesorah

There comes a time in every parent’s life when he has to teach his child to swim. And he has to do it in a way that won’t get him in trouble for child endangerment.

I mention this because I’m sending my son to a camp this summer where they won’t let him near the lake unless he can pass a

Center Circle

At Jewish celebrations, the hora is danced in a series of concentric circles, with the guests of honor typically in the center.
