MAY GOOD HEALTH AND PROSPERITY BE WITH YOU
AND MAY PEACE COME TO ISRAEL IN 5762
|It’s time to
send wishes for health and good cheer
As we ready ourselves to begin a new year.
But first let’s remember the year that’s now done
And recall how we spent 5761.
At JTS Esther took on a new role.
Its publications she now will control.
She wrote, sang, and acted, all on the side.
Her on-stage improv was talent personified.
Jack burned his third a cappella CD
And used his apartment to host family.
To Haifa, Beersheva, and Greece he did roam
And surprised us three times with business trips home.
"The Intern" on Showtime and he
Wrote VH1 scripts and some for MTV.
Auditions and calls had him huffin’ and puffin’
But it worked — he’s the voice of the Coffee Cake Muffin!
Shuly shlepped Al from Eilat to Galil
With a load of reporters there to reveal
Tourism facts. Hers were put to the test
And appeared on the covers of TravelAge West.
Al, playing research assistant to Shuly,
Took photos and studied glass works by Chihuly.
Next time with film he will not have to fidget. It’ll
Be easier now ’cause his camera is digital.
A New Year is starting. We hope it will bring
Reasons to celebrate, to dance, and to sing.
And wherever the blue and white flag is unfurled —
Peace in our homes and all over the world.
