I was not expecting this shipment until later in the week. Phoenix Color, the printing company used by Seraphic Press has been incredibly cooperative. When […]

Chai Lifeline Retreat Part II

Karen and I did not arrive at the decision to attend the Healing Hearts program at Camp Simcha easily. It is a year and four months since Ariel ZT”L was niftar, and we have arrived at a place where daily life has become, more or less manageable. I know how to get through the day […]
