Ethan Kadish, the only one of three campers still hospitalized after being struck by lightning last week at a Jewish camp in Indiana, remains in critical but stable condition.
The 12-year-old from Cincinnati requires help with his breathing and needs his chest cleared, according to his family, who set up a website, Caringbridge.org/visit/ethankadish, to provide updates on his condition.
“Ethan continues to work with his medical team on recovery,” the Kadish family wrote. “We want to let all of you know that his recovery is going to take time.”
The Anti-Defamation League on Wednesday hailed the decision by the Supreme Court to uphold the federal rights of same sex couples in states that allow same sex marriages.
The DOMA lawsuit had been brought by a Jewish woman, Edith Windsor, who was forced to pay federal taxes on the estate of her late wife, Thea Spyer, who was also Jewish, despite the fact that their Canadian marriage was recognized as legal by the state of New York, where they resided.
