The preceding twelve months have been beyond difficult for our worldwide and greater Rhode Island Jewish […]

Shortly after assuming my position as Alliance President & CEO, a most wonderful human being took me out to lunch. When he asked me what was most important to me, I unhesitatingly responded it was my family. This extremely wise man then gently chided me and instructed that professional accountabilities must always be balanced with familial […]

Yom-Hashoah-1

This week marked the 62nd anniversary of Yom HaShoah (Holocaust Remembrance Day). The genocide, the atrocities, and the depravity, which the Nazi’s engineered and perpetrated upon more than six million Jews and countless millions of other innocents during the 1930s and 1940s, will never make sense and must never, ever be forgotten. Yet with each […]
