Bread Machine challah recipe, anyone?

posted by Homeshuling

I’m trying to figure out how to work challah baking into my new-ish life as a mom who works full time outside of the home. Tonight I decided to try making the dough and forming the loaves in the evening, […]

My favorite tree book

posted by Homeshuling

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

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 […]
