‘Israel at 60’ in Hartsdale

Polls show that American Jewish support for Israel is weakening somewhat, but nothing brings New York Jews together like Israel.

The picture is of a similar event a few years back.

On Sunday, Israeli Consul General Asaf Shariv will be there, as will officials from the AJC, AIPAC and other groups.

It will be all-Israel, all-day.

Gary Stern covered education in the Lower Hudson Valley for several years during the early 1990s. Now's he back on the beat. He believes that schools are one of the main reasons that people live around here and that educational issues -- from curriculum to financing -- are among the most challenging things that journalists can write about. He continues to be amazed by the complexity of educational jargon. Gary got his B.A. at SUNY Buffalo and his M.A. from the University of Missouri Journalism School (where his master's thesis was about the best ways to cover education). He lives in White Plains with his wife and two sons, who attend public schools.
