If you really want to move on after a bad breakup, Miriam's Advice Well suggests getting rid of the sentimental things cluttering up your emotional life.


Divorcing couples have enough drama going on between them that they don't need to add "dividing up thier friends" to the list of things to work out.


Purim begins Saturday night, Feb. 23, which means it's time to get happy!


Something smelly has been cropping up at recent events in the Jewish community and so Miriam's Advice Well provides some guidance in how to eradicate it.


What do you do if you're trying to become more Sabbath observant but you're not there yet? Miriam's Advice Well has some suggestions.



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.
