It seems quite likely that my wife, Debbie, and I were the sole Shabbat Project participants in Cochin, India.

Many offered us to partake another Shabbos at their home. The food was delicious, sinful and tasty. If anyone ... more...

This was the best Shabbos of my life! It began with the Challah Bake which was incredibly successful with approx. 380/400 people turn out to make challah at the JCC. I loved making challah with a teacher who retired from the school I work at. She is just a wonderful, warm person with a special nesha... more...
