 Hello beautiful children!

Bessie here, sporting emerald green on this lovely Saint Patrick’s Day! Don’t we just love interfaith celebration! Even my poodle, Mazel, is wearing a green Juicy Couture suit. He looks lovely!
Though, children, on a more serious note, we must have a minute of mourning. Congressman Aaron Schock has resigned. My husband Irving was one of his biggest donors, and we are devastated. Here I am with him during his visit to our synagogue in Florida!

Oh he is just so handsome. If only he were Jewish…I would set him up with my beautiful grandson Abram. He’s on the market, kids! His mother even created a JDate profile for him. Or what is this JSwipe everyone keeps mentioning? Is this the new match making technology? Will one of you young kids please teach me? Myrtle is learning so much at the JNF and I can’t keep up with all the new systems and technologies…. And I want Jewish grandchildren (but I will not pressure my grandson…probably not).

Students will hear from progressive policymakers and opinion leaders as well as those AIPAC officials working most closely with the progressive political community.


With love, blessings, good health, and mazel,
