Wandering Jews no more. Kehilat Hadar, the 10-year-old independent minyan on the Upper West Side, held its first services last weekend in its new, semi-permanent space — inside the Solomon Schechter School of Manhattan’s new site at Columbus Avenue and 100th Street.
“[The move] marks a change that we’re excited about,” said Marc Aaron Melzer, one of five gabbaim on the leadership committee.
Mia Bauer got her start baking on a moshav with her mom;
she now oversees an empire built on Crumbs.

When most people hear that they’re crumby at work, it’s a sign that they could be doing a better job. Not so for an employee of Crumbs Bake Shop where being “Crumby” is actually a good thing, a sign that he loves what he’s doing.
Less than a decade since opening their first bakeshop on the Upper West Side, across the street from the JCC, Crumbs’ owners — Mia and Jason Bauer — find themselves atop a rapidly growing cupcake empire.
