Dear Readers,

As a busy working mom involved in lots of community projects and still trying to have a social life and sleep occasionally, I'm struggling to prioritize my time and get to everything. I was trying to imagine what kind of advice someone would give me, or alternatively, what kind of advice I would give someone like me. So as I work to answer my own question, hopefully it will be helpful to you, too!

Dear Miriam,

Shavuot is an important and interesting holiday, but it's so often neglected. Why is that, and what can we do about it?

Dear Miriam,

You offer a lot of advice for young adults trying to make their way in the city, but what advice do you have for retirees who are moving to a new place later in life?

Dear Miriam,

I had a great date with a guy last week.  He ended the evening by saying that we'd "definitely" get together again. That was four days ago and I haven't heard from him. What should I do?

Dear Miriam,

People seem to take cabs a lot more in Philly than any place else I've ever lived. Why is that, and what should I know about "cabbing it," including how much to tip?

Profile

I am extremely proud to be both a member of the Philadelphia young adult Jewish community and a professional working to make the community the best it can be.

I work full time as the director of Hillel of Greater Philadelphia’s Jewish Graduate Student Network. 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.

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 and matchmaker for GradMatch.org, a children’s book reviewer, a former elementary school teacher, a pretty decent cook and a mom to two beautiful children.
