Miriam issues advice on dealing with a difficult boss.


Why are Easter and Passover a month apart this year, and what's the best way to explain that to a non-Jewish child?


Should you go to a friend's baby shower if the whole idea makes you uncomfortable? It's time to talk superstition.


Looking past the snowy confluence of this year's big storm and Tu B'Shevat, Miriam digs up some great reasons to celebrate and speak for the trees at this time of ear.


What to do about Shabbat plans on a snowy weekend?



I am extremely proud to be a part of making the Philadelphia Jewish community the best it can be.

I am a co-founder of Minyan Tikvah (a lay-led prayer group in Center City Philadelphia that meets once a month for traditional egalitarian Shabbat services), a founder of a former matchmaking service for Jewish graduate students, a children’s book reviewer, a former elementary school teacher, a pretty decent cook and a mom to two beautiful children.

I spent years as the director of Hillel of Greater Philadelphia’s Jewish Graduate Student Network before resigning to spend more time with my family. My husband, Marc, likes to say that I knew more people within a week of moving to Philadelphia than he knew after six years here.

I’m originally from the tiny town of Fredonia, NY, and sometimes I still stare at the skyscrapers and marvel at how many Jews I know.
