Good Stuff!


Mazel tov!

Little Jacob Ryan Kauffman was welcomed into the world on Oct. 30, delighting his parents Ben and Ciara Kauffman of Tampa. Proud grandparents are Jay and Karen Kauffman of Seminole and Rick and Nancy Chapman of Madeira Beach. Great-Grandmother Ellen Bernstein of St. Petersburg is kvelling over great-grandchild #9.

Hot off the presses

Congratulations to Iris Ruth Pastor of Tampa for completing her latest book, The Secret Life of a Weight-Obsessed Woman: Wisdom to Live the Life You Crave, now available online at Amazon. com. Pastor, a blogger for Huffington Post and an occasional columnist for the Jewish Press, says her memoir, “is my honest and personal account of what it’s like to suffer from and live with an eating disorder. But at heart, my book is a story most everyone can relate to – it’s about living with an addiction, a bad habit, a self-destructive pattern of behavior, a negative mindset – anything that prevents you from living life fully, living with joy and purpose and vigor.” She notes that eating disorders are rampant in Jewish culture and says, “I’m not a rabbi, a licensed professional therapist, or a nutritionist. I’m a fellow sufferer who writes about my love affair with ED (eating disorder) for 46 years and what I have learned during my journey back to health and wellness.”
