There’s an unavoidable irony inherent in tabling on a college campus for the National Day of Unplugging: namely, the majority of students who ignore me as they pass me by with headphones in

Rabbi Brandon Bernstein

Tanya Schevitz

I had the recent pleasure to be invited by a friend on a hike in Los Liones Canyon of Pacific Palisades. It was gorgeous summer day and the trail was steep.

Cantor Lisa Levine

Rabbi Matthew Soffer
