In the early 1900s scientists were treated like rock stars. They were the celebrities.

Passover 2014

Date: 04/14/2014

Hag Sameach! Passover is not just about remembering the story of the Exodus from Egypt. It is about telling the story.  The word "haggadah," the name of the book we read aloud every year at the meal (seder) to remember what happened and help make it real to us, means "story." Thousands of years before people talked about "learning styles," the seder included many different ways of telling the ...
