It’s Wednesday – May 27, 2015

Posted on May 27, 2015

Boker Tov. Shavuot was one of the best and best attended that I can remember for this holiday that’s been trying to make a name for itself from Biblical times. Since then, I confess to have mostly been thinking about myself. Yesterday was my last day in the office. In a few hours we are […] Continue Reading »

Boker Tov. I continue to share my more favorite or IMHO more important It’s Wednesday columns as the retirement looms. The year 2013 – 2014 began with Jefferson, continued with many columns on the Pew Survey of American Jews, dabbled in the life and thinking of Albert Einstein, and included the announcement of that very […] Continue Reading »

Boker Tov. Continuing to focus on my more favorite or IMHO more important It’s Wednesday columns as the retirement looms. The year 2012 – 2013 was full of events, good and bad. There was the welcoming of Congresswoman Michelle Bachmann to our sister shul Anshe Emet on Kol Nidre – that generated a ton of […] Continue Reading »

Boker Tov. I continue to focus on my more favorite or IMHO more important It’s Wednesday columns as the retirement looms. The year 2011 – 2012 was one of my better ones I think. The theme was learning, amidst the launch of CE21/L2G initiatives that have significantly changed what we do in educational programming. It […] Continue Reading »

It’s Wednesday – Farewell Tour – April 22, 2015

Posted on April 22, 2015

Boker Tov. I continue to focus on my more favorite or IMHO more important It’s Wednesday columns as the retirement looms. The year 2010 – 2011 was our Israel theme year and there was plenty about that, but the most provocative column – based on your responses – was about the Intel Science Talent Search.

Boker Tov. Mine were finished just yesterday, very stressful.   Now I can refocus on my more favorite or IMHO more important It’s Wednesday columns. The year 2009 – 2010 was marked by a number of provocative columns and there was great give and take.  It was the year that Biden was in Jerusalem when new […] Continue Reading »

Posted on April 9, 2015

Boker Tov. I am continuing with some of my more favorite or important It’s Wednesday columns. This would fall in the former category.  Occasionally I permitted myself, with your indulgence, to share news about my family. This one from May of 2009 seems timely on at least two levels. Boker Tov.                  The years do […] Continue Reading »

Boker Tov. I was kidding about retiring. April Fools! I now continue with some of my more favorite or important columns, this one from September 2008. I was very clever in 2008-2009, been downhill since. I have at least six of those columns that I would love to share but maybe you will get two. […] Continue Reading »

It’s Wednesday – The Farewell Tour Continues – March 26, 2015

Posted on March 25, 2015

Boker Tov. Last week we began the nostalgic trip through my email files (more exactly, Allen Lerman’s email files.) I shared the launch of It’s Wednesday and the anti-gossip theme with which it began. Today I share from the next theme, which was God. We discussed and debated, talked about belief and non-belief and why […] Continue Reading »
