April NewsHello from New York City and the United Nations! I was invited by UNOCHA to a meeting about the World Humanitarian Summit. I felt honored to be included among the twenty people selected as “Champions for Humanity.” Please see my article in the Jewish Journal and the website, Impossible Choices, to learn more.

For Passover, I had an article in print in the Jewish Journal. Here is a link to the online version of my article, “A Journey to Freedom over Three Passovers.” I hope that during this season you have gone forth from mitzrayim (narrow places) to openness and ever-expanding possibility.
