Wow! I am speechless — and breathless. As usual, Merrill Silver takes an exciting slice of life, and hands it up to me as a gift (“A new welcome mat at JVS,” March 2). It is a wondrous tale — story, actually, and more power to you. Kol HaKavod. Keep it up. With more energetic, joyous teachers like you, we cannot help but move ahead with hope and dreams for an ever-joyful future.
What a beautifully written and heartfelt piece, “A new welcome mat at JVS.” It was a joy to read. The ESL students are lucky to have Merrill Silver for a teacher.
