Hi there! Long time no speak!

Firstly, I hope you’re all reading the awesome new blogs being posted on yaldah.com daily. I don’t remember the last time I saw the Yaldah website so happening and I love it! It’s so nice to see that there are so many different varieties–there’s something for everyone. Just a note: Only the four most recent articles get placed on the left side of the home page. You can view older posts by clicking on the bottom article and then on top of the article, click on the article pointing to the left (the previous article), or if you have a special interest, click on blogs on the top of the page and choose the one you want. Don’t miss out on all the exciting posts.

I hope you all enjoyed the Iyar issue. What was your favorite article/feature? Post your answer below. The Sivan issue is currently being designed, and our illustrators and photographers are hard at work on the Tammuz issue. By the way, if you (or a girl you know) has a Chabad House (or similar) on a college campus and would be interested in being part of an article in our Tammuz issue, please email Fortunee Cohen (fortuneec.eb@yaldah.com). Because we don’t work summers, we are also starting our Tishrei issue soon. The issue planning meeting will take place sometime within the next two weeks imy”H, so if you have an article idea, please post it below or email it to submit@yaldah.com.

It’s hard to believe that school is winding down. I’m in the middle of finals now and will be graduating high school, imy”H, in the beginning of June. I’m very excited for the summer, because I’m going to be a counselor at the sleep-away camp I’ve been going to since 6th grade. I worked there last year and had a great time, so looking forward to a fantastic summer. Hope you have exciting summer plans as well. Check out my article (it’s funny because I wrote it a few years ago when I was on the board, but because the summer issue came out late that year we couldn’t put it in–remembered it when we were planning the issue and put it in 🙂 ) on going to sleep-away camp in the Iyar issue.
