2016 was a tumultuous year for me, filled with exhilarating highs -- including my son’s bar mitzvah trip to Israel in June on which we were accompanied by 36 friends and family members -- and some agonizing lows, including the nearly simultaneous decline and passing of my mother. 


To cap things off, I closed the year with a bike accident in Panama that, but for my helmet, would have been devastating. I suffered a concussion and am going to be fine, but for the time being, I have to rest my body and mind.


I look forward to returning to my column as soon as I’m able.  I believe we’re entering one of the most unusual and potentially consequential eras in American history and I am grateful to have a platform from which to share my observations.


Thanks to all those who’ve written to inquire about me and my health.  May 2017 bring us all that we long for!

I hope your recovery is moving at the speed of light - which is at God's charge.
