Borne Aloft On The Wings Of A Dove -- The Twentieth Yahrtzeit Of HaRav Yonah Mertzbach Zt'l And Sixty Two Years Since Kristallnacht

By Moshe Musman, based on a text by Rav Binyomin Hamburger and notes by Rav Aharon Shmuel Mertzbach

Introduction: Twilight

The opening decades of the twentieth century saw the emergence in Germany of a cadre of dedicated young rabbonim of native birth and training. They undertook the leadership of kehillos across their country, attempting to contain and reverse the ravages of many years of predominantly Reform influence on what in past centuries had been a glorious Jewish national center.


The Power of Attention

HOW TO DECREASE NEGATIVE ATTENTION GETTING BEHAVIORS IN CHILDREN AND INCREASE POSTIVE BEHAVIORS

by Masha Wolf, M.A., Child Therapist

Children of all ages live and thrive on parental love and attention. When children feel they are not getting the attention they crave, they will often go to any extent to get it. Children craving attention will seek negative attention if they find it easier to get than positive attention. Negative attention can be even more intense and exciting for a child in need than positive attention. For example, a child who comes on time for supper may get a smile or compliment or no recognition at all, while a child who purposely annoys the baby will mostly get yelled at or scolded strongly and immediately.
