I just returned from Israel where I was on an educational mission called Shevat Achim to explore and study our sister city, Ashkelon. Ashkelon is Baltimore’s sister city since 2004. It was so interesting and impressive to know how similar Baltimore’s school system, from an educational standpoint is to five of the public schools we saw in Ashkelon.
When Jewish women's international called to tell me that I had been chosen as one of this year's ten Women to watch, it took me by surprise. For the simple reason that my work has really been focused on the Baltimore Jewish community and I hadn't realized that national (or international) eyes were on us.
But as it turns out, they are. And I believe that is because what Beth El is doing is radical and crucial.
