The Stern Gang :)

Yeshiva University's Stern College for Women has attracted some fine writers, a fact to which we Jewish bloggers can attest. If any of you have not yet become acquainted with "The Stern Gang" (yep, I made it up in a comment on DovBear's blog a few months ago), I recommend that you do so. Meet Fudge and Chana (the Curious Jew).

While you're at it, I'm happy that Ezzie "introduced" me to SJ so that I can introduce her to you. She seems to be a student at an unidentified college in New York City, and she and Chana recently spent a Shabbat at the Serandez home.

I would call Fudge the elder stateswoman of this group, were it not for a recent post of hers. Speaking as someone who's always considered herself immature for her age, I found it quite interesting to read about the challenges that come with the opposite experience. It isn't every day that one finds oneself a guest at a Bat Mitzvah celebration at which one is one year younger than, and two grades ahead of, the Bat Mitzvah girl.

But don't go away thinking that Fudge writes only serious stuff, or you'll be missing half the fun. Stick around long enough to read about why she describes herself as "pronuclear." Then, of course, there's her recent post about the joys of dorm life. Oy.

Chana has three recent posts that are well worth reading. She writes quite movingly about a person with a disability who gave her the ability to think twice about prejudging people. She also writes about hot chocolate spills and stuck-in-an-elevator thrills. There's also this thought-provoking piece about religion being far more than ritual.

SJ has a few words to say about tolerance among Jews. She also tells us about her trip to London. And here's her poetic look at a rainy day.
So what are you waiting for? Click on the links for some good reading.

Chana & SJ are great. Now if only we could get Fudge here...

Just don't ask her to get her grandmother to drive her. :) :) :)

(Folks, if you don't get the joke, go read her posts!)
