I drove past this sign on my way home from a rabbinic retreat. It completely hijacked the rest of my thoughts for the next twenty miles. My eyes searched the landscape, wondering how many had passed this very way, seeking asylum from oppression. I have some more thoughts about the Great Migration over at Rabbis Without Borders.

The kids seem to think I’m no longer cool. AND that Warren is in charge. See why over at Kveller.

For the fourth consecutive year, the Association of Jewish Libraries has arranged a blog tour to honor this year’s Sydney Taylor Book Award winners. And for the fourth consecutive year, I am proud to be a stop along the tour. I encourage you to take some time next week and visit each of the sites. I promise that the information you glean will greatly enhance your reading experience.
