This past Friday morning, my wife and I were walking on the side of Route 45, a busy thoroughfare in our neighborhood, when we noticed some stunning flowers growing on the side of the road. Since it was no-man’s land, we picked a few for our Shabbos table.

Marty wasn’t very adept at using computers. It took him a long time to familiarize himself with new technology, and he always seemed to be a few steps behind. When he finally downloaded programs and apps he required, he constantly needed to be reminded how to use them.

The following is the letter I wrote to Heichal HaTorah’s graduating Class of 2020 for their yearbook:

 Dare Graduates!

 No, that’s not a typo. That’s my message to you, dear graduates.

Our family custom is to have a dairy meal during the nights of Shavuos. My wife prepares every one of my favorite dairy delicacies for those meals. Each one of those dishes could easily be a main course for dinner on any given night.
