Teacher, Scholar

I couldn't be more proud of you. Knowing things is important, but sharing that knowledge is even better. I know that you said Joe was pestering you a bit while you were teaching his class, but I think he was just showing his pride in you.

I guess all those whale books and models were worth it.

Hi Dagim Parents,

I hope you are all enjoying the break and had a wonderful Chanukah.  Below is a link to photos from Chanukah celebrations, our send-off party for Sabrina and her brother Bennett (they should be arriving in Israel very soon!), and a special lesson on whales taught by Jack Goldberg (Joe's brother.) 

I will send out an email soon with Sabrina's email address and other contact information.  As a class, we will be video-chatting and writing letters with Sabrina.  We will all miss her very much and we wish her and her family a safe and fabulous semester in Israel.   

Wishing you a happy and healthy 2009!

Our Jewish Day School Ham

We went to your class presentation on ancient Egypt this morning. Here are some shots of you with the crown of Osiris. Very informative.

I told Mom that I think all of your standup comedy viewing on TV and YouTube is starting to show in the way you present yourself. You used to be very shy and uncomfortable doing these presentations and any public speaking. Now you really seem to dive in headfirst and relish the chance to be onstage. Have you grown a hambone when we weren't looking?

Comedy by Osmosis

You're going to sleep listening to Mitch Hedberg. Love that.

Brace Face

You have been really excited about getting braces.

Last week you got your "palate expander." Not exactly sure why you've been so excited, but I won't question it. My only hope is that it all isn't too painful.

You'll look even more handsome when it is all over. How that's possible I have no idea.

You've Exhausted the Simpsons

This is what you are watching round the clock.


Jack, sorry I haven't been good about writing to you lately. I had a great time with you at the AC/DC concert at Madison Square Garden. I was pooh-poohing it, so I appreciate you motivating us to go. It was especially nice staying at Steven's with you in the Village and walking all over the place.
