Yesterday we were inspired by Scott Fried who spoke to our students about valuing one’s own life and holding it sacred in order to refrain from dangerous behaviors that are common survival mechanisms in adolescence. Many thanks go to Keneseth Israel, Yonatan Yussman, Rabbi Wolk, and Jewish Heritage Fund for Excellence for coordinating the entire weekend and enabling Scott to come to Louisville. Ask your kids about the experience—it was truly powerful and engaging.

Thanks again to those of you who let me know when your children will be absent or need to leave early—it’s important for planning and safety!
