The Temple Beth Israel-Shaare Zedek is the only Jewish synagogue in northwestern Ohio aside from the Congregation B’nai Israel, an hour and a half away, just outside of Toledo. Its congregation is small, and most of its attendees are aging, many in their sixties and above.

A black door landed on the sidewalk in front of The McIntosh Center, the morning of Oct. 10, leaving the student body and faculty questioning its origin and what is was doing on the sidewalk. Some students questioned if it was a joke “portal” to a different dimension; other believed it was a simple prank to throw us out of our day-to-day lives.

Four years ago, no one wanted Omega Hollies to be a teacher. The recent Grand Valley State graduate ran around from small job to even smaller job.

She hoped every day there would be more than four positions open teaching high school sociology.

A high school never popped up on her server, but Ohio Northern University did.

It won’t matter what party holds the majority in Congress and it won’t matter who is governor of Ohio next year, our discussions are going to change, and that fact is totally inevitable.
