While I do subscribe and read Washington Jewish Week, this story slipped through the cracks and I am only just now seeing this wonderful story on our mikvah's reopening. Check out the digital version of the paper here (the story is on pages 4-5).
I'm stoked to reveal some updates I've been making to this site! I've totally revamped and reorganized how my posts are categorized and they now are sorted by topic, type, and publication. I'm hoping this makes it easier to navigate and read. Also, I'm always looking for feedback (which you can always give anonymously via [...]

Below is the gallery of photos that she took that day, and honestly they are stunning. She did an amazing job, and not just because I [...]
