Adam J. Miller

Adam is a Chicago native currently living in New York after the temptation of the Jewish scene in the Upper West Side became too much to resist. He graduated from UMass as a double-major in journalism and international sports marketing where he worked for 3.5 years at his college paper, the Massachusetts Daily Collegian and held an internship at the Jerusalem Post.

Unfortunately, as most journalism majors learn in college, the reporter route usually won't pay the bills, so he now works for the "other side" at a PR agency doing social media. 

Adam is an avid sports fan and likes to spend his time catching a game or enjoying a nice whiskey; usually both together. When he's not doing one or the other, you can typically find him cooking up a new recipe or planning his next travel destination.

My Religious High-Wire Act photo

I’ll never forget my first Shabbat at home after spending five months in Jerusalem studying Judaism at the Pardes Institute. I had spent my entire life in the northern suburb of Deerfield before going away to college, yet I came back feeling like a stranger in my home town.

CHI to NYC: My Chanukah Miracle photo

Every Chanukah we are reminded of the phrase “nes gadol hayah sham” -- “a great miracle happened there,” and we celebrate the various miracles of Chanukah. But as I’m writing this from my new apartment in New York City, I’m thankful for a different type of miracle, and the “there” in this case is a little more complicated.

5 Inevitable High Holiday Moments in Your 20s photo_th2

Growing up, the High Holidays were that time of year when our parents made us wear the fanciest dress or suit in our closet and sit through long services while sitting so far back in the room, you questioned if the rabbi was even on the bimah (stage). The trade-off was you got two nights of your parents’ or grandparents’ finest cuisine (assuming you survived your family meals).
