Let’s Talk about Me and Effort

Vacation. Oh yes, vacation. So much has already been written about it. So much is yet to be written. Yet it surprises me every time it comes around and makes me come to terms with touchy subjects. Here’s one of the big ones: I need to put in effort to be good. I’ll explain. During most of my childhood and adolescence, I didn’t have to exert myself. If something required effort, then (as you probably guessed) I just skipped it entirely...

Dancing to the Beat of your Own Drum

I was insanely busy when I was in college. I was studying two rigorous majors, teaching classes to support myself and for my own enjoyment, and studying one day a week at The Jewish Statesmanship Center just for fun. With whatever time was left, I went on dates and forged relationships, some of which lasted two weeks and some that disintegrated that same night in the freezing air of Mount Scopus. Those were hectic and wonderful years...

How Do You Say Goodbye to a Generation?

We went from one house of mourning to the next, exchanged stories and experiences and even found the best place to park at Har Hamenuchot Cemetery. Now, at the end of the last week of mourning for the time being (do you hear me up there?!), I had a chance to think about how privileged we were...

Everybody Likes a Compliment

Let’s talk about compliments for a minute. It might sound like an insignificant topic, but I think it’s actually a pretty underrated one. I’ll say it straight out – there were compliments that helped me progress in life. A sentence here, a word there, that remained etched in my mind and contributed to shaping my character. Examples? With pleasure. When I was in sixth grade, I took a Bible test. I remember that it was difficult...

Mountain Woman

Mountain women 1.jpg I’m Moriya. Like everyone, I am a lot of things simultaneously. I am a daughter, sister and granddaughter. I am the mother of three gorgeous, happy children and a wife. I am a Jew and a religious person. I am a feminist, I’m right wing and I’m still deliberating whether I am an especially liberal conservative or vice versa. And I’m also a settler. Some of my definitions were born along with me, while others I accumulated over the years...
