For my father, Louis ♥ you showed me, by example, the acceptance of all people and got me involved in interfaith movements.

For my grandmother Nane ♥ you taught me the spirit of 'shalom bayit' ("Sometimes, in love, you just have to bite your tongue.").

For my dad, Len ♥ you taught me to see and to learn and to discover the world.

For my dad, Maurice ♥ you taught me how to give respect and live with humility, and I think about you every day.

For Beatrice Collins, my Irish-Catholic nanny ♥ you taught us the simplicity of a moral, faithful life, unconditional love and common sense—you still guide us..
For my husband Tim ♥ "you are the Christmas of my life" - is what you wrote to me in the card with a holiday bouquet - and how you announced your love for me.
