Origin of the Name IMK

All through his life- even when he was a great man with the world at his feet- he was to feel this gap: something at the bottom of his heart of which he was aware, and ashamed, but which he did not understand…

So far as he could see- and he felt that there must be some reason for it somewhere- the boy’s face was as ugly as a monster’s in the King’s menagerie. He looked like an African ape…

Bizarro Rebecca Schiffman

Yesterday night, for the first time, I met my pen pal of two years, Rebecca Schiffman – from Nashville! She is 23 and, just as my father is a Rabbi, I believe her father is a Baptist minister. Just so you know, if you google me and you see that a Rebecca Schiffman worked on […]
