Our local cities had a lot of snow to deal with this past week and many people worked very hard long hours to make it this way. While I cannot testify accurately to other cities, Cleveland Heights did a great job! If you feel the same way (or if you disagree), please send a thank you to the various city managers and city officials:
Cleveland Heights City Manager, Ms. Susanna Neirman – firstname.lastname@example.org
University Heights Facilities Manager Jeff Pokorny – email@example.com
Beachwood Service Director Dale H. Pekarek – firstname.lastname@example.org

Four years ago, Team Yachad was formed with just 29 excited participants in the ING Miami Half-Marathon to provide funds and awareness for the vital work of Yachad: promoting Inclusion for those living with disabilities within the broad Jewish community. Eagerly anticipating the finish line of this year’s race — to be held on Sunday, January 27 — are the 180 members of Team Yachad 2013 (including 10 individuals with disabilities, five of whom are returning team members).
Yachad/the Natioinal Jewish Council for Disabilties (NJCD), an agency of the Orthodox Union, is dedicated to enhancing the opportunities of individuals with disabilities, promoting Inclusion and independence through various integrated activities and ensuring their participation in the full spectrum of Jewish life.
New to Northeast Ohio in 2010, Rachael Ng rented an apartment across from the mall in Beachwood. But as she came to know her way around town, she quickly joined the migration path of her tribe.
“I have a lot of friends who live downtown,” explained Ng (pronounced “Ing”), a 27-year-old pharmacist for the Cleveland Clinic. “A lot of us hang out on Coventry, too. I wanted something in the center of all that.”
So she moved to University Circle, on the border of Cleveland and Cleveland Heights, and added her energy to a new and potentially potent population pattern.

Are you trying to choose a good kriah (Hebrew reading) CD for your kids, but you’re confused about which to buy? It can be hard to find detailed information about what each CD offers. Since our family recently bought a new kriah CD, we thought we’d share our experiences with the two that we own. Hopefully this review will help other families choose which one is best for their family.
Kriyah Coach is a new CD that was created as a way to raise money for tzedakah. It assumes that kids already know the alef-beis; there’s a quick alef-beis review you can click on, with video footage of a rebbe and his class pointing to the osios and reviewing them, but that’s all that’s offered for alef-beis. The CD’s focus is on learning the nekudah sounds and learning to blend. For each nekudah, there’s a 3-step approach: first, a computer-animated scene with characters introducing the nekudah; second, video footage of Rabbi Henoch Potash teaching that nekudah to his class; and third, a brief exercise for the child to practice with.
The pronunciation used is mainstream yeshivish.
Overall, Kriyah Coach is cute–the little boys in Rabbi Potash’s class are adorable, and the animated characters interest kids–but it doesn’t offer a lot of practice.
Tuesday night at 8pm Kehillas Bnai Torah will be holding the first women’s Shovavim Shiur on Shalom Bayis and Halacha given by Mrs. Deena Davidovich. The Shiur will take place in the Shul Shiur room at 4471 Churchill. Please use the 2nd door on the left side of the house.
The Yerushalmi teaches that one who recites Parshas Hamon every day is assured that his food will not be lacking. Reb Mendel M’Riminov said that saying Parshas Hamon (Shenayim Mikroh V’Echod Targum) on the Tuesday of Parshas B’Shalach, is a Segulah for Parnasah, and indeed this has become a well accepted custom in many circles. Also have in mind as well all of Klal Yisroel, many of whom are suffering terribly with a lack of parnassah. Chazal teach that one who prays for someone else in need, for the same thing that they need, the one praying for their friend will be answered first!
New Parking Violations Bureau Decriminalizes Parking Infractions and provides Hearing Examiner to oversee appeals process.
In accordance with City Council’s approval of the establishment of a new Parking Violations Bureau and hiring of a Hearing Examiner, the City of South Euclid Police Department will begin the re-issuance of Parking Tickets on Wednesday, January 23, 2013 at midnight.
The Police Department suspended the issuance of parking tickets in May 2012 pending City Council’s determination of a new procedure for paying fines and challenging parking tickets. On September 10, 2012 South Euclid City Council approved legislation creating a Parking Violations Bureau, decriminalizing parking tickets and making infractions civil offenses.
