Wouldn’t it be nice if our inbox magically managed itself? Let’s go a step further. What if we could live in a world without email? Email overload takes a real toll on us - on our workflow, and on our brains. A study conducted by RescueTime found that most workers can’t go six minutes without checking email. That, combined with how inefficient we become when switching tasks, creates a gigantic loss of productivity during our workday. Joke’s on you! I don’t use email. I use Slack instead. Ha! Slack isn’t any better than email. Any platform that allows for endless
Have you found yourself mindlessly scrolling through social media feeds over the last few months? Have you also found yourself in a state of sadness, anxiety, or aggravation afterwards?

A free, 8-part audio course / Passover 2020 The most widely read, beloved, and perplexing book of the Jewish tradition is the Passover Haggadah. It is also a serious work of Jewish political philosophy. This Passover, Tikvah brings you a free audio course from Rabbi Meir Soloveichik, exploring the social, civic, and political teachings of the Haggadah. He will show how every prayer, passage, symbol, and song aims to describe and preserve the Jewish understanding of the good society, and why the festival of freedom is so central to understanding what Judaism stands for in every generation.

Critical race theory has gradually crept into the administrations of universities, government agencies, and private workplaces. For many Americans, its introduction into K–12 education—both public and private—was a wake-up call about the spread of the ideology. Parents in particular fear the dissemination of illiberal ideas to their children under the guise of “equity”, and have begun to band together to challenge the movement at the state level.
