One 7-year-old Jewish girl from London is making her modeling dreams come true. The twist: Eliza Brichto isn't into dresses and wrote to the fashion brand Zara to ask if she could model their boy…clothes. Eliza sent a handwritten note to the company telling them she loved their clothes. "I’m your number one fan," Eliza wrote in her letter. "You might think that it’s quite weird that a girl wears boy clothes but anyway let me tell you the story. When I was four I looked at Zara girls… >> Read More
My heart started beating a little faster when I saw the Facebook post last summer: an adult show choir would be forming that fall in Bloomington, Indiana, where I live.

Comedian and Jewish dad of two Michael Ian Black has a lot to say about the tragic Florida school shooting this week that left 17 dead.
In a time when parents, kids, and teachers fear they soon…could be the victims of the next school shooting, it's not a surprise that Black spoke out in a Twitter thread last night, as a parent himself. He also happens to live with his family just 10 miles away from Newtown, Connecticut, where a gunman killed 26 people including many children in 2012. A post… >> Read More
