What Else She Said

My father was known, even as a young boy, as an excellent head and was in a Yeshiva -- a rabbinical school -- in Slobodka [Lithuania] and then came to America, where he was in Cleveland as one of the teachers. Then he was invited to come to be the head of a Yeshiva in Switzerland, in Boston or in Baltimore. My mother choose Baltimore because she said that Baltimore is a desert in Judaism and that's were we should be. By the way, she named the Yeshiva 'Ner Israel', the Light of Israel was the name she gave.
