BREAKING NEWS: Kosher Hedgehog is a Grandpa!
Forget President Obama. Forget Governor Romney. Forget the economy, the election, Syria, Iran and the Middle East in General. Here is the hot story! On July 23, 2012, Elise [Kostant] Trencher gave birth to a strapping 9 lb 6 oz baby boy, whom she and her husband Eliott entered into the covenant of brit milah on 10 Av (July 30) and named him Jonah Avery, to be known in Israel as Yehoshua Eliyahu (after Eliott's paternal grandfather and my own father). May his parents merit to raise him to Torah, Chupah and Maasim Tovim (Torah, the wedding canopy and good deeds)! My wife and I are overwhelmed with gratitude to God for allowing us to fulfill the blessing in Psalm 128: "And may you see your children's children." And a special hat tip to Mrs. Kosher Hedgehog, without whom none of this would have been possible.
