A special thanks to the staff , faculty and 8th Graders at Barkai Yeshivah for having Cheri Srour and I speak and open up a conversation based on acts of kindness.Kindness,  no matter the size of the act has an enormous residual effect that goes on and on and  etc……. I am grateful for having this oppertunity to share some of the ways of dealing with life  challenges. It provides our youth with tools that we have picked up along our journeys that have helped us and continue to help us  deal with the ups and downs , the pressures and the unkown  of every day life!
Looking forward to our next conversation!

‘He’s Dressed As Batman Today’


a Poem called “Battle Scar” written by DJ Cohen 1.4.16

This poem you see above was first created on February 27, 2015 in Tinton Falls, NJ at 3:30 PM. After just having this intense MRI earlier that day, we conversation with my doctor about my diagnosis of Pancreatic Cancer that has spread to other parts of my body (originally i thought i had ulcers). Expressing through words , above. you see alot of the emotions that ran through me and layers of hope and creativity and fear. And at the end all i want is to pray for one more day as i lay to sleep every night after this day.
