Dr. Ann Ruben, a retired psychologist living at Riverview Towers, writes the blog “Hooray for Happiness,” in which she strives to guide readers to a positive and happy outlook on life.
Joy Braunstein, the newly hired director of the Holocaust Center of the Jewish Federation of Greater, will soon begin her new blog “Never Forget,” in which she will explore contemporary issues surrounding, and implications of, The Holocaust.
