The Picture of Happiness

What’s written on the chalkboards of “My Piece of Happiness” are as diverse as the people holding them, but each holds a clue as to what makes us all tick. Call it a sense of peace, fulfillment, satisfaction, or meaning, it’s a return to our earliest ideals, the things we valued in childhood and might have lost along the way.

The Fashionable, the Famous, and the Flops

Perhaps because the Autumn/ Winter shows come at a dreary time of year, or maybe it's the pre-Fashion Week grumbling that in an age of Instagram and live streaming, fashion shows - with their ensuing costs - are becoming (dare we say it) passé. In any case, During its Autumn Winter 2016 show, New York Fashion Week seems to have tipped it's ever-delicate balance from fashion to entertainment.

The Unlikeliest Storyteller

The first time he mentioned that his sister-in-law writes a blog on Terezin it didn't register with me. "That's nice," I replied absently. He shrugged tattooed shoulders and turned a power saw on. April sunlight glinted off a big silver cross around his neck as he got back to building a deck in our yard. It's October and the tattooed builder with the silver cross, is back, fixing a leaky kitchen ceiling while I put away groceries. He tries again loudly from the top of the ladder. “My sister-in-law writes a blog about Terezin.” I look up. With his black skull t-shirt and motorcycle jacket, he looks more like a Hell’s Angels gang member than the family member of a Holocaust Chronicler. I'm pretty sure I'm hearing things. I try to form an appropriate response, but the only thing that comes out of my mouth is “What?” "I'll send it to you" he says and disappears into the ceiling.

When Right Brings Might: Haley and Danon Wrench the UN Away From Israel Bashers

At Thursday’s United Nations Security Council meeting, United States Ambassador Nikki Haley honored her pledge to shift the focus of the Middle East conflict away from the Israeli-Palestinian conflict. Haley, who is rotating as UNSC president for the month of April, didn’t mince words when she steered the Council away from Israel and onto Iran’s support of terrorism.

Among them was his younger brother Oron.
