It’s finally spring! The flowers aren’t quite blooming yet, but the snow is over (I hope). As the residue of winter storms have now been turned into water, much of the Northeast has become saturated with sogginess. How much ice and snow is too much? Where will all this water go?
The Tzofim-Israeli Friendship Scout Caravan visited the Klein JCC for an hour of music and poetry in celebration of Israel and Jewish history on Aug. 8. The performers helped visitors perform traditional Hebrew dances and also dedicated a song and slideshow to the current conflict in Gaza.
My dad always called them Chinese Apples. I’m talking about pomegranates, the jeweled-looking fruit that makes its way to our markets from late fall through early winter.

Found right before Christmas, we always purchased one to just take apart and to eat.
