Speaking of re-runs, is it almost time for a new season of Mad Men? Please? From July 13, 2009 When my daughters were babies, I really knew how to sleep them. I put them to bed early (and I do […]

In honor of Tu B’Shevat, the Jewish New Year of the trees, I want to recommend my very favorite book on the subject. (And no, it’s not The Giving Tree, which, despite the title, just really isn’t about trees. Thank […]

Taking care of ourselves

posted by Homeshuling

Becoming a parent has unquestionably made me much more thoughtful about Judaism. Being a role model and a full time educator (and I’m not talking about my job) means that I’m always paying attention to how Jewish I’m being, or […]

I couldn’t have said it better myself. Really.

One of my favorite things about writing this blog is getting to “meet” so many other Jewish parenting bloggers. I’m fantasizing about some giant Jewish mommy cocktail party one of these days. (Not giant Jewish mommies, mind you, but maybe […]

A new tradition?

We attended a family havdallah gathering at Ella’s school tonight. When we returned home, I asked the girls if they had fun. “It was pretty good,” said Zoe. “But it would have been a lot better with a bounce house.”

Talking about God with your children

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 ...

Why I love the New American Haggadah (and it's not just because I got to have a martini with Nathan Englander.)
