Best Pizza & Bagel on NYC’s UES, A Talk with Amy Schwach & A Must-See Exhibit

Rabbi Mosbacher reveals his pick for best bagel and best pizza on the Upper East Side. (Did he get it right??) In the interview, Amy Schwach, executive director of Temple Shaaray Tefila, reveals something that flabbergasted her when she read through decades-old TST newsletters, confirms a job she had when she was younger that you’d never guess, discusses the mystery novel her father wrote (which may or may not contain versions of TST members!), and talks about why she’s not afraid to have difficult conversations at work. Rabbi Mosbacher also examines why it’s more important than ever to visit the Museum of Jewish Heritage’s current exhibit (and why to make sure to bring your teens, too, before the end of August), and why voting in the World Zionist Congress elections before March 11 is mission critical. Lastly, Rabbi Mosbacher issues a challenge for the next two weeks that might just make your life, and your family’s life, a little bit better.
