Tonight is the first night of Passover, the #spring Jewish festival that commemorates the liberation of Jews from slavery in Egypt. I loved this quote from the @92ndstreety’s Rabbi Peter Rubenstein: “For some of us, winter seems to have lingered too long so we’re anxious for springtime. This year the seasonal and religious holidays of Passover and Good Friday are on the same day. Both take a special meaning when so much of the news has been focused on migration. People are fleeing their homelands yearning for safety from violence and devastation and seeking a safer and better life for themselves and their children. I hope the refugees would be in our prayers and minds as we gather around our Seder or Easter tables to recount our own peoples’ stories of redemption and salvation. Best wishes for a chag sameach, a joyful and meaningful festival.” It is a story that celebrates the survival of the Jewish people centuries ago and reminds us of that freedom, dignity, and equality will always defeat hate. Happy #passover #goodfriday and #easterweekend everyone!💞 📸 taken from my friend @jillkargman !😊
Congratulations to the @uvamenshoops for reaching the final four for the first time since 1984. What a game! So proud of these guys who won in a nail biting overtime. And hats off to @boilerball because Purdue played an unbelievable game especially the enormously talented @cboogie_3 (Carsen Edwards) who scored an amazing 42 points. Props to coach Tony Bennett and the entire team. So happy for @uva and @charlottesvilleva Now onto the next!

Gloria – because of you, I became a card carrying member of the feminist party. When anyone eschewed the label, I’d remind them what the word feminism means: the political, economic and social equality of the sexes, and who the hell can argue with that? You made me believe that anything was possible. Thank God for you, Gloria! The world is a better, more equitable place because you’re in it. With love and deep admiration, Katie ♥️🥰 #happybirthday #happy85gloria #birthdaygirl
My friend David Brooks, the @nytimes columnist and best selling author started Weave: The Social Project nine months ago at the @aspeninstitute after he realized how many amazing people at the local level were working to strengthen and unite their communities during an incredibly divisive time in our nation. The weavers are doing incredible work to serve their communities and help create a world in which love and equality are plentiful, not scarce. I am going to be highlighting these men and women for my #WednesdayWomen and #GoodGuys series. First up, is Dylan Tête, an Army combat veteran who is the Executive Director and Founder of Bastion Community of Resilience - an innovative housing solution for returning warriors with traumatic brain injuries in New Orleans. Bastion is a community made up of 19 double family homes with 73 residents that helps incubate meaningful relationships for soldiers who are recovering from the wounds and casualties of war. For years, after he returned to New Orleans from Iraq, Dylan was just unbelievably angry, but "One day I realized that I could help those going through hell because I’d been in hell too.” To learn more about Bastion and the incredible work they’re doing visit: https://www.joinbastion.org/ #wednesday #weavers #goodguys #veterans #neworleans

#BreakingNews: Michael Cohen, President Trump’s former personal lawyer has agreed to testify before the House Oversight Committee on Feburary 7th to give “a full and credible account” of his work for President Trump. It’s the first major move by the newly controlled Democratic House to deliver on their pledge to pursue investigations of the President and his inner circle. House Oversight Committee Chairman Elijah Cummings stated: “He’ll have the chance to tell his side of the story, and we’ll have a chance to question him. The American people deserve that.” In a statement, Mr. Cohen said “In furtherance of my commitment to cooperate and provide the American people with answers, I have accepted the invitation by Chairman Elijah Cummings to appear publicly on February 7th. I look forward to having the privilege of being afforded a platform with which to give a full and credible account of the events which have transpired.” #breakingnews #michaelcohen #potus #trump
I thought this moment was so touching. Former Senate majority leader Bob Dole, who is 95, rose to give a final salute and pay his respects to former President George H.W. Bush. Both Dole and Bush fought as young men in World War II (Dole was just 21 and Bush was 20!) and Dole competed against Bush not once but twice for the Republican presidential nomination. ❤️💙
Happiness is when your grandkittens come to visit. Oh and their mom too! #iamturningintoacrazycatlady #Mabel #Waltermiaforthispboto PS I think she has my eyes!
Happy Birthday, Georgia O’Keeffe! Born today in 1887, we have Georgia to thank for pioneering American modernist painting and sharing her beautiful interpretations of nature and landscapes with the world. “I think it’s so foolish for people to want to be happy. Happy is so momentary - you’re happy for an instant and then you start thinking again. Interest is the most important thing in life; happiness is temporary, but interest is continuous.” 🌺#happybirthday #georgiaokeeffe #thursday

Tonight is the first night of Hanukkah !! Hanukkah is the Festival of Lights, commemorating and celebrating the story of how the Maccabees defeated a tyrant and reclaimed the Temple in Jerusalem. There was only enough oil to light one candle in the Temple, but miraculously, the oil lasted eight days and nights. Hanukkah symbolizes hope - and serves as a reminder that even in dark times, the light can always be found and kept alive. Chag Sameach everyone! 💙🌟#happyhanukkah #festivaloflights #adamsandler

Bernice & Sylvan Simon, 84 & 86 Bernice and Sylvan had been married for 62 years, and were wed at the Tree of Life synagogue. Bernice and Sylvan would bake bread for neighbors who shoveled their driveway in the winter.“They were the sweetest people you could imagine. They were kind, generous, and good hearted individuals.” Their neighbor Jo Stepaniak said. #restinpeace #pittsburgh #remembertheirnames
I know it gets said again and again, but being kind is truly one of the easiest things you can do. And in these times, it’s so important, now more than ever that we lead with kindness. Happy #worldkindnessday everyone.💛
Vickie Lee Jones, 67. Vickie was shot in the parking lot of the Kroger grocery store. Vickie was a retired office administrator at the Veteran Affairs hospital as well as a breast cancer survivor. She loved to travel and was a faithful member of the Church of the Living God. “She was a beautiful spirit, kind soul, God-fearing woman. Always had candy in her purse. I don’t know if it was to tell people you know ‘Here, suck on this’ or if it was ‘You need some help with your breath right now.’” Recounts her nephew, Kevin Gunn. #restinpeace #jeffersontown
There are no words. This is agonizing to watch. Once again I am heartbroken and devastated over the news about the #thousandoaks shooting. This is the 307th mass shooting in the United States this year. My heart breaks for this father, Jason Coffman, who lost his first born son, Cody. He was 22 years old. THIS HAS GOT TO STOP. Please AMERICA, I’m begging you. We must do something - we can start by donating to these gun control groups that are making a difference and doing exceptional work: @everytown Americans for Responsible Solutions (founded by @gabbygiffords) @violencepolicycenter @coalitiontostopgunviolence The Brady Campaign.
I’ve finally found my spirit animal. You’re welcome. 😊 (the other dog is Molner)
My sister Emily passed away 17 years ago today. She was 54. Emily was remarkable. Whip smart, driven and compassionate, the eldest child in the Couric family who set a wonderful example (and high bar) for the three who followed. Emily was running for Lt. Governor in Virginia when she was diagnosed with pancreatic cancer and had to step down. She was replaced by Tim Kaine who went on, of course, to do great things. As I’ve watched so many women decide to run for office and get into public service, it’s made me think of my sister, who as a state Senator loved representing the people of Charlottesville and all of Albemarle County. Emily would be so proud of the many women who want to “be the change they wish to see.” Emily’s wonderful husband George, along with her friends and family and the good people of Virginia established the Emily Couric Cancer Center at UVA which has helped so many dealing with this maddening disease. #rememberingemily #vote

🎶I’m flying...🎶 Happy #Halloween everyone! I must say, I think this was one of my best entrances, even though I kicked some poor person in the head! What are you all going as this year?! 😊🎃💚 #happyhalloween #halloween #peterpan #todayshow #crashlanding
This is Hawa Mahal, or Palace of Winds, a five story tall building with 365 windows where women from the royal court would hang out, gossip and check out the action on the street below. It was built in 1799 but along with other structures, the reigning maharaja painted the town pink to honor the Prince of Wales (Prince Albert Edward, the eldest son of Queen Victoria) when he visited the city in 1876. The King of Jaipur took it a step further and made it illegal for buildings in the old city to be painted any other color than “Jaipur pink” which is really more of a salmon or terra cotta color. The city is an experience in sensory overload...I tried to capture it in stories but you really have to experience it for yourselves! We are now on to Varanasi! Happy Sunday to all of you from India 🇮🇳!!!! ❤️❤️❤️ #nofilterpermolner #matchymatchy
Do you all have thoughts on this week’s @time cover? Sure to be a conversation starter (or stopper.) I find it incredibly sad.
I may be far away, but my heart is focused on #GivingTuesday! Today, I’m raising money for @su2c, an organization I co-founded after I lost both my husband and sister to cancer. Nearly everyone knows at least one person affected by cancer, and together, with your help, we can be the generation that will end cancer as we know it. Please consider making a gift to help ensure that all patients become long term survivors. 100% of your donations will support Stand Up To Cancer’s collaborative cancer research programs. Visit the link in my bio, or my @facebook page to donate. Thanks everyone, XO! ❤️#givingtuesday #tuesday #standuptocancer
I am completely starstruck in the midst of these powerhouse women! 🔹@laurenaunderwood is the newly elected congresswoman for Illinois’s 14th Congressional District. She is also a registered nurse and was formerly a senior advisor at the US Department of Health and Human Services. 🔹@drleanawen is the new president of @plannedparenthood. She is a former emergency physician and also served as the health commissioner for Baltimore City. Dr. Leana is also the author of the book “When Doctors Don’t Listen: How to Avoid Misdiagnoses and Unnecessary Tests” which is all about teaching patients how to advocate for themselves. 🔹@mikiesherrill is the newly elected congresswoman for New Jersey’s 11th District. She is a former federal prosecutor and US Navy helicopter pilot. If this doesn’t show the world is changing I don’t know what does! It was cool to be in their presence to say the least! PS: Thank you @joannacoles for throwing such a fun and festive lunch! 💫#whoruntheworld #thefutureisfemale
Today is #TransDayofRemembrance. So far this year, at least 22 transgender or gender non-conforming people have been killed nationwide in acts of anti-transgender bigotry, and at least 17 of them were killed with guns. Now more than ever, we must #DisarmHate #repost: @juliannemoore
