Instead of grading 10th grade quizzes, Rabbi Daniel Rosen writes this message: “I sit here with Sparky, the blind and angry (unrelated traits) dog, on my lap. I am still not famous and am waiting for one or more of you to grab the spotlight and shout my name from on high. Sparky is looking for an inexpensive illustrator for his children’s book. If you are interested, email him via me.” Rabbi Charles Savenor, director of congregational education at New York City’s Park Avenue Synagogue, received the inaugural Maimonides Award for Excellence in Jewish Education from the California-based Community Scholar Program.
