You can’t homeshul if you’re never home

posted by Homeshuling

Last week I returned to work full time after six years of part-time employment (and full time parenting, of course.) I’ve spent most of my waking hours in meetings and setting up my classroom in anticipation of the first day of school. Tomorrow. I haven’t been blogging much because, well, I just haven’t been home much.
I look forward to blogging about this new direction, in which most of my time is spent providing a Jewish education to other people’s children, instead of my own (although in fact, my daughter Ella will my student this year!) But for now, the most important thing is to get a good night sleep.

B’hatzlacha!! You may remember that I taught Ben in Kindergarten. And believe it or not, last night I dreamt that I was back at Schechter preparing to teach second grade and you were filling me in, having taught it the year before.
Reality is that I started my first class in Interior Design today. Quite a different bag!

Teaching the Four Questions to young children
One of the greatest privileges of being a kindergarten teacher in a Jewish day school is having the opportunity to teach children to recite the four questions. Unlike almost anything else I teach them about Jewish ritual, this is "real work." The candles will get blessed, kiddush will be recited, an

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 made from disgusting ingredients such as cottonseed oi

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, and (alas) responsive readings, from these dog-eared, p

I love the idea of people all over the world making my great-grandmother's fabulous hamentashen, the same ones my mom made with me and that I mak
