  1. I am an artist and a writer. If RS and YK were lovers, what would there relationship be like? My answer would be, Give and Take, a relationship where both would take stock of themselves on a reg basis, to see where they needed improvement. Not just during the 10 days.

  2. I want my fellow Jews to remember our own immigrant history and to reject the philosophy of exclusion and of forcing people to carry identification. It’s reminiscent of the yellow arm bands and we must never forget. I’m an artist and co-director of an all volunteer art program for Philadelphia public high school students now in our 11th year, The Stained Glass Project:Windows That Open Doors.
