  1. Carol,

    I friend forwarded an email (sent to her as a teacher in our synagogue Torah School) about your suggestions for using Jewish Artists and their Art in curriculum. Yasher Koach!

    I am especially interested in this topic as a former art teacher/museum educator, and Ph.D. in Visual Arts Education with a focus in Jewish Art. Unfortunately, I was unable to open some of the files, but would like to dialogue with you further about this concept. I look forward to hearing from you. Thanks.

  2. Carol: I was thinking of Joel on Halloween which would have been his 64th birthday. I think the last time we spoke was on the occasion of what would have been his 50th. Time has flown by!
    We live now in Anthem, AZ and have been retired for almost 12 years. Trudy and I have 7 grandchildren now and visit them often when we are in the midwest.
    Your career looks to have been (and probably still is) quite challenging and rewarding. Congratulations.
    Drop us an email if you can and maybe we can catch up a little more.
    Steve & Trudy Taylor
