Pride and self-congratulation before the Idiot Tax (we’ll laugh about this later)

Last week, while my family was in Eilat for a long weekend vacation, I made my way to a shopping complex just outside my city. I was there to do some research for our daughter’s birthday party (check!), look for running shoes (nope!), and one or two other errands. While I was there, I thought […]

Feedback that inspires me to be a better blogger

I enjoy blogging because I enjoy sharing things that interest me. My blog has a pretty modest following, and I like receiving feedback on posts that resonate with readers.

A perspective on what it’s like to be a Jew in the United Kingdom at the moment
