But is it good for the Jews?

 

don't we look cool?

don't we look cool?

Here are the girls and I heading off to buy some challah on our brand new Xtracycle. I recently accepted a full time job for next year, and decided to splurge on something that I’d wanted for a long time. We’ve had our SUB* for 3 days and we’ve already gone to the grocery store, the hair salon, 3 friends’ houses, school, and to drop of a rug at the cleaners’ all with pure pedal power. It’s much easier to use than the Burley – no attaching and unattaching the trailer, over and over again – and a zillion time more versatile than a tag-a-long. Consequently, I’m motivated to bike more than ever before. Which is good for my health, my wallet, and the earth. And, I guess, the Jews.
Shabbat Shalom!

Love it. We’ve seen similar bikes all over Asia and they make so much sense.

Guess what's Kosher for Passover (this will change your life.)
I'm not exaggerating. The bane of my Passover existence has been pareve baking. I cook a lot more meat during the holiday than I do the rest of the year, which means a lot more pareve desserts. Which has, up until now, usually meant margarine ...

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, ...

Edible Purim baskets. And, introducing...the cookie fairies!
