We had a wonderful audience and performance at the JCC in Overland Park, Kansas on March 5th. We send a big thank you to the JCC staff and to Howard Jacobson for the wonderful hospitality, full house and enthusiastic reception.
Irena Sendler always encouraged us to reach out during the holidays to the many friends around the world. So from Irena and the Life in a Jar family, we wish you a Merry Christmas, Happy Hanukkah (started Sunday and ends next Monday) and much more to her many, many friends
The Irena Sendler Award was awarded last month in Warsaw, Poland. This teaching award continues to bring Irena’s actions to the forefront of Poland’s history while honoring an amazing woman who made a difference.

Dear Norm,Thanks for the beautiful email to remind us that Irena passed away 7 years ago today. I will go to St. Patrick’s Cathedral this afternoon and light as many candles as I can in her memory. I thank you and Jack and Megan and the other Kansas girls for introducing me to Irena Sendler and enriching my life by knowing her story.Patti Kenner
Reading your e-mail had me thinking about God’s providence again.
