Thoughts on the Latest Banking Crisis

This whole Silicon Valley situation has been frustrating, as it was totally preventable in my assessment.

When an Emergency Arises

During a nationally televised NFL game, Damar Hamlin, a Buffalo Bills safety, collapsed following a routine tackle. The incident riveted the entire country’s attention.

Pesach 5783: I’m Just Chasing Freedom

In recent years I have become incrementally more disciplined about my exercise regimen. Prior to the pandemic, my wife and I were on a fairly fixed schedule of going to the gym three times a week.

‘Don’t Underestimate the Food’

One supporter of a nonprofit that I worked for once told me, “You know why I come back to your gala? I love the food.” If you think he was an exception, think again. Many others echoed his comment to me, all of whom, of course, felt a strong allegiance to our organization no matter the cuisine.


When Is ‘The Market’ Not ‘The Market’?

After the mess of a year that was 2022, financial success isn’t a word you hear too often these days. If you’ve read any of my recent articles, or simply spoken to another person, you’ll be aware of the noise around the markets and inflation today when it comes to the S&P 500 or what is commonly
