For Openers: Building Alliances Over Dinner

It’s 7:30 p.m. on Friday night, and the dinner party called for 7 p.m. has just reached enough critical mass to get started.

Pool play, maccabiah games, horseback riding. The images are glorious. They show 8-year-olds dressed in white, 11-year-olds covered in sand: childhood at its most beautiful.
