Kids need a mental health day?! (Issue 85, Ask the Therapist) Give me a break! We have coddled today’s kids to the point that even attending a regular day of school is too much for them to handle. What kind of a generation are we raising? Yes, life can be stressful at times. Get used to it. Are they going to check out as adults when life gets too intense? Instead of a mental day off, try teaching your kids coping skills.
I was so pleased to read last month (Issue 85, Community) that Senator Simcha Felder is working on getting homeowners a break from their exorbitant property tax this year. It’s nice to see politicians working on our behalf. Renters saw a break with a freeze on their monthly expenses. I don’t understand how the Mayor thinks that the pandemic didn’t have a financial effect on us homeowners as well. Our property tax is already too high as it is.

The article about releasing trapped emotions (Issue 85, “Emotion Code: Getting Rid of Your Emotional Chametz”) was fascinating! Is this backed by science? This sounds like a much better (and quicker) way to heal sickness than taking medication for who knows how long. I have always felt that there is a strong mind and body connection. I like the holistic approach to treating sickness and am curious to learn more about this form of treatment. How much does a typical session cost?
I had the pleasure of attending Allison’s communal Seder and I can attest to everything that was written about it. Allison and her family are true baalei chessed! When I first heard that they were opening T-Fusion to anyone that needed a place to go for the Seder for free, I was skeptical, but registered anyway as I had no place else to go for the meal. I was so impressed by the classy décor, elegant food, and most importantly the amazing hospitality of Allison and her family. I hope next Pesach they can continue offering this much needed communal service.
I really enjoyed your expanded recipe section and all their yummy Pesach recipes. Honestly, I didn’t try any of the dishes, but the pictures looked great, and I am going to keep it handy for next Pesach.
I looooved your funny Echoes column last month! Your pun on Dr. Seuss and the overall Pesach message of freedom were so eloquently intertwined. Great job!
