Second of all, what is a Parent Cafe? (as per comment number one above).
First of all, I want to know exactly what goes on in Mark Oppenheimer’s shul. I need details of Tot Shabbat-type programs that make little kids antsy to get to shul. Because, of course, I want to duplicate them in my own synagogue.

Don’t close-up shop, that’s for sure! You’re stuff is quite different – unique, unpredictable, fun. There’s plenty of room on the web for Rebekah & two more!

The shul I work at holds parent gatherings during Sunday school at least once a month. They have discussions and, of course, snacks.

Why I love the New American Haggadah (and it's not just because I got to have a martini with Nathan Englander.)
I'm not a haggadah junkie. I know many Jews whose shelves are overflowing with numerous versions of the Haggadah - from the traditional Maxwell House to the not-so-traditional Santa Cruz - and whose seders are an amalgam of commentaries, poems, ...

Best Hamentashen Ever, even better. And, a Purim opera.

Edible Purim baskets. And, introducing...the cookie fairies!
My very favorite Jewish holiday tradition, bar non, is the mitzvah of mishloach manot - preparing and delivering gifts of homemade goodies to friends and neighbors on Purim day. This is a mitzvah which embodies so much of why Judaism is ...
