Dear Editor:

On Saturday, January 21, I participated in the Women's March on Washington. Along with thousands and thousands of women and a few good men (including my husband ) we experienced and embraced our democracy. It was one of the most exhilarating experiences of my life. I marched for my daughters and granddaughters and everyone else's as well.

Even though it was a "protest," it didn't feel that way. The crowds were exuberant and we all shared the feeling that we were participating in something positive for our country. We made a very strong statement that women's rights are human rights . It was a very large support group committed to making a difference. I have never felt so connected to so many. We met and talked with people from all over this country. We felt so empowered and believed that together we can make a difference. We shall have to see if that is true, but after Saturday, I feel hopeful.

I also want to publicly acknowledge and thank Maggie Savoca for all she did to organize amd make the trip to Washington possible for so many of us. She is an inspiration to us all.

Why We Keep Kosher

Why We Keep Kosher

This week's parshah, Shemini, introduces the Torah's dietary laws. Animals must chew their cud and have split hooves to be kosher, fish need fins and scales, and a list of forbidden fowl is enumerated.

To those of us in Jewish education, it is a continuing source of disappointment that so many Jews still believe the kosher laws to be outdated.
