How is it possible that I'm only now grasping this essential truth? That holding onto who you are does not have to devalue who you become as a parent. Though this is not explicit in the essay, I've always found Shel Silverstein's "The Giving Tree" unsettling. I realize it borders on heresy to admit that publicly. But it's only now, at this juncture in my adulthood and parenting, that I finally understand why the story, and the ending especially, made me squirm. My latest for Hevria. https://hevria.com/merriukraincik/do-my-sacrifices-make-me-a-better-mother/ #hevria

Doing some more writing at @hevria 🎉🎉 It's about my husband's beard, and my recovery from seeing the world in black-and-white. Link in comments. "I didn’t bring it up with him directly, but I spoke to others about my concerns about his beard. The lack thereof. I was afraid that it meant that he accepted the army’s dress standards over our religious ones, allowing a foreign body to dictate his religious choices. My point of reference for that was my having given up playing music on Shabbos, despite that being antithetical to the standards of practicing and performing in the music world. Did that therefore mean that we didn’t share some important values, ones that would affect our relationship in the long term?" #beards #jews #chabad #shaving #chassidim #women #selfexpression #cheshbon #yeshiva #israel #seminary #balance #tiferet #music #cello #conservatory #usarmy #captain #usarmyreserves #westpoint #kfarchabad #crownheights #hevria #thenehoraieffect #shabbos #totalenvironment #blackandwhite #technicolor #rainbow

I drew back the curtains on a driving force behind my life in music. Like for many others, music has been a survival mechanism for me. "I’ve since realized how common this is, the striving for excellence and attention in the performing arts in order to avoid the darkness of trauma. The approval of a strict parent, avoiding being beaten by an abusive parent, avoiding a traumatic army draft, a ticket out of an oppressive country have all been driving forces for people I know. For me, keeping at the cello was my ticket out of the oppressive silence of our grief at home." Huge thanks to my friends at @hevria for holding my hand as I pieced this together ♥️ Link in comments and bio. #creativity #music #silence #survival #coping #grief #community #therapy #cello #mothers #motherhood #sad #redemption #death #life #soul #neshama #musiceducation #hevria

To the portrait warriors of figure drawing class- you rose to the challenge and you captured. You ate muffins and wine and never faltered. Except when you did Bc that’s what supposed to happen . And then you got back up and kept on drawing. Because you knew that art doesn’t come from the hand but from the heart. #warriors #digdeep #portrait #figuredrawing #nyc #hevria

These moments happen in our lives. Someone -- a parent, a peer, a teacher, an adult we admire and trust -- offers a criticism large or small and, poof, we allow it to crack a fissure in our self-esteem. Or we give it license to steer us off the path of our dreams because we believe them more than we believe in ourselves. What we listen to and what we manage to ignore along the way, from childhood forward, may be happenstance or perhaps it is what draws us closer to fulfilling our destiny. I'm not sure, and I suspect it varies for each of us as individuals. And yet, I still mourn this moment from elementary school as a kind of loss. https://hevria.com/merriukraincik/how-i-mastered-the-art-of-disappointment/. My latest for Hevria. #hevria #art

I'm on page 9 and I already see why @rivkanehorai and @popchassid are always talking about Brenda Ueland. Too many good quotes. But page 9 is the one where she writes, "Think of how many times Kreisler practiced trills. If you will write as many words as Kreisler has practiced trills I prophesy that you will win the Nobel Prize in ten years. But here is an important thing: you must not practice perfunctorily, but with all your intelligence and love, as Kreisler does. A great musician once told me that one should never play a single note without hearing it, feeling that it is true, thinking it beautiful." #brendaueland #ifyouwanttowrite #writing #music #multidisciplinary #cello #cellist #practice #creativity #inspiration #endurance #wisdom #hevria #nehoraieffect

I never thought I'd get to write an essay that includes both my imaginings about the life of the great Hebrew poet Yehuda HaLevi and my worries about how to know when the time has come to pack our bags and make aliyah. But here we are in my latest for Hevria. "There’s that old joke about how long it takes a Jew to leave a party. I can’t help wonder if the festivities here are winding down, if we’re too drunk in love with baseball and apple pie to see the writing on the wall. Thank G-d for the security guard at the entrance to our shul and for our civil liberties, our freedoms of speech and religion and democracy for which we recite a prayer of gratitude each Shabbos. This has been a paradise of a diaspora, but our passports and our adoration and loyalty to this place notwithstanding, I read the news and hope beyond hope we are more than guests who have overstayed our welcome." #hevria #aliyah #packing. http://hevria.com/merriukraincik/how-do-we-know-when-its-time-to-go/

This is about the past 14 years, a period during which I found it difficult -- not physically, but emotionally and spiritually -- to get to shul on Shabbos, and how, all of a sudden, just before candle-lighting this Rosh Hashana, I decided I wanted to come back.
