I couldn’t make this stuff up if I tried

Today, Zoe had her Kindergarten screening. Since I teach at her future school, I got an insider’s report about how the morning went.
The teacher began by asking the children to name one of their favorite things. A few children said playing in the snow. Another said gymnastics. Another – ice cream.
What did Zoe say?
“My family.”

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.)

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, ...
