Unless you are living completely off the grid — and if you are, mazel tov! — you’ve probably noticed that superhero movies are having a major moment these days.
Back when my kids were…little, I was completely, thoroughly, 100% anti-superhero.

After nearly a decade of superhero-free living, things changed drastically last summer. Superheroes came on the scene in our family,… >> Read More
Gal Gadot — Israeli actor, model, and mom of two — got emotional when her assistant recently showed her a video of her late grandfather, Abraham Weiss, who was a Holocaust survivor.
