  1. Just wanted to say that I just joined the “Jew in the City” site, and I LOVE it! Interesting. Insightful, intelligent commentary on numerous topics relevant to those with a Judaic perspective. I will eagerly devour any article with Mayim Bialik as its writer or subject. She is an inspiration. Continued success, and may this site’s run be long and prosperous.
