I was pleased with Abigail Leichman’s March 2 article that included my conversation with her about women’s m’gillah readings and the Teaneck Women’s Tefillah. Upon reflection, I realized that I greatly under-estimated the number of girls who marked their becoming b’not mitzvah with the Teaneck Women’s Tefillah. It is probably well over 60.

I was very moved by the piece by Rabbi Noam Marans (“When the Cardinal Hugged the Rabbi”), and I found the column by Shammai Engelmayer (“Don’t Look Now….”) a very worthwhile read.
