Come out, come out, wherever you are

glindaAfter blogging for eight months, I’m beginning to discover that I have readers who aren’t, you know, my mom.
Who are you? How did you find my blog?
Please post! (You too, mom!)

I forget how I found you, and I’ll warn you now that I’m not really a regular reader.
I am a Jewish homeschooler in Toronto, and appreciate anyone who takes both Judaism and parenting seriously.
Thanks for blogging!

Aaron, a friend of mine out here in CA, writes:
Leon, the author of The Edible Torah , was a guest writer on Aaron’s journal one day, and so I subscribed to Leon’s work.
Leon mentioned your journal in this entry here:
And here I am. *grin*

I believe I found you via ImaBima or the RebbetzinRocks. I’ve got you on bloglines aggregator and also Google’s RSS sidebar utility, so as soon as you post, I’m there!
And Jennifer in MamaLand – we’re another Jewish homeschool family (well, sorta. 2 kids go to day school, 1 is finishing HighSchool this year, and one in the middle attends online school now. But we work hard to cobble it all together and make it Jewish at the same time!

I found you through Haveil Havalim – don’t remember how I found that site! Read your site daily – love your insights and observations. My kids are grown now (28 and 25) and I relish the opportunity to remember our earlier days.
I’m a Jewish educational consultant in the Washington DC area – and especially value your comments on education, and the choices your family makes in Jewish living.
Keep posting, please!

I found you through an image posted by Interfaith Family of your sukkah, I think. I stop by once a week or so to see what’s new.

I think it was through Yo Yenta!’s blog.. that or trawling google reader!
Foolishly I once blogged that I had some number of views ‘which couldn’t all be my mother’… I got an email back which said ‘Want to bet?’

I’m a mom of 2, almost 6yrs old and 4.5. We live in seattle and recently decided to homeschool. I don’t remember how I found your blog. Could have been in a search for homeschooling or pj library or jewish parenting. :) you’re in my bookmarks and I check every couple days. Always interesting and inspiring (esp sukkot). I don’t know any other moms so I read mom blogs fairly regularly. Its hard to find smart ones sometimes. I like your simple and intelligent writing.
Nice to meet you!

Hi Amy–
I learned about your blog through a PJ Library newsletter. As a new mom (to a 9 month old), I’m always looking for inspiration about parenting or Judaism.

Happy Hanukkah!

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." ...

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 ...

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, ...
