"The world exists only because of the innocent breath of schoolchildren", attributed to Jewish sages 1st Century Talmud:Shabbat. Recent reports of children as early as two years old receiving psychotropic drugs has me worried. How safe are Ritalin and Prozac - the stimulants and anti-depressants for kids?
(Printed in the Jewish Journal 12.9.05)
What can we do to bring people together? How do we get our parks and communities safe? How do we teach tolerance? For years our elected officials have grappled with these questions and have provided a matrix of answers. Some work, some don’t.

Every once in awhile I have a discussion with parents about the importance of sending their children to a Jewish private school, Yeshiva. Sometimes I can score a few points, and then there are other times that I get nowhere quickly. However, recent news convinced me that there is an unbeatable case for the private Yeshiva.
