Bing.comEvery year families all over the world unite to enjoy the Seder. While calling all members of the family together may feel like the ingathering of the exiles, it is the laughter and discussion held around the table that all will remember for years to come. Many households are made up of a range of personalities reminiscent of the four sons we discuss during the Seder and whose placation may at times feel like a balancing act. This Passover, the Golan Heights Winery presents fun recommendations for wines to fit each type so that the differing personalities do not create havoc worse than the 10 plagues.

On April 2, a new student began school in the second grade at Providence Hebrew Day School (PHDS); while every student is special, this student’s arrival heralded a milestone for PHDS. Binyamin Cohen and his family moved from Israel to Providence at the end of March. While change is hard, Binyamin was very excited to join PHDS, the school both his mother and maternal grandmother attended. Thus, Binyamin is the first-ever third-generation PHDS student, which makes this a historic moment for the almost 70-year-old school.

Cheryl Greenfeld Teverow and Rabbi Michelle DardashtiThe 60 women who attended the Women’s Alliance Rosh Hodesh program on April 1 were eager to hear from Michelle Dardashti, the new associate chaplain of the university for the Jewish community at Brown and rabbi of Brown RISD Hillel.
