At the Am Shalom Matzah Brei Cook-Off, the stakes were high for the two main players, Rabbi Phyllis Sommer and the Rabbi Steve Lowenstein, on Saturday, March 31, in Glencoe.

When Loyola and New Trier played each other in a 7-on-7 on the morning of Saturday, July 11, there was little reason for spectators with a vested interest in either school to look at what was happening on the other half of Deerfield’s football field.
