What matters?

posted by Homeshuling

“What matters?” Zoe likes to ask, her arms held up in the universal child-asking-a-question gesture. She thinks it means “what’s the difference?”  To me, she sounds just like Yenta in Fiddler on the Roof whenever she says it, most often […]

Best way to use up chametz

posted by Homeshuling

Or at least the most efficient, since I could have easily eaten the entire batch in one sitting. My standard refrain about living in a small New England city is “everything is great, except for the bagels.” Now I can […]

Do what you love, love what you do

posted by Homeshuling

I spent my first year of graduate school in Jerusalem. Because this was some twenty years ago, communication with friends and family in the States was primarily by mail, which often took two or three weeks to arrive at its […]

And we can eat matzah why…..?

posted by Homeshuling

Did you ever wonder why, if we aren’t allowed to eat products made with wheat on Passover, that matzoh is totally kosher (so to speak?) I must admit that this question puzzled me until my mid-20’s, when I spent a […]

Well, I’m glad I’m sending the right message

Here’s what one reviewer on Goodreads had to say about my book, A Mezuzah on the Door. “This book helped me to realize that you should disregard your values, traditions and beliefs simply because you are in an environment where […]

What rhymes with Nineveh?

posted by Homeshuling

I know it’s not near Yom Kippur, but my brilliant, creative (and single just long enough to start dating again) brother just posted this to Youtube. It’s a song about Nineveh, the town that saved itself by doing to teshuvah, […]

I’ll have your spam. I love it.

posted by Homeshuling

These are the kinds of comments that spammers send my (and every other blogger’s) way to try to get their links on our sites. The first time I got one, I actually fell for it and approved the comment. I […]

I wish I had a better answer

posted by Homeshuling

Yesterday my girls and I were sitting in “family service” at our shul (ok, more accurately, Ella and I were sitting in family service while Zoe made endless what-is-the-opposite-of-beelines to the water fountain.) Even though I insist my children come […]

A recipe review of questionable value

posted by Homeshuling

A little over a month ago I asked for challah recipes for my bread machine. I’ve been working my way through the many kind contributions, and wanted to report back. This report will inspire in you little or no confidence […]

When I wasn’t looking…..

posted by Homeshuling

Homeshuling turned one! My first post was on March 1, 2009, and featured my great-grandmother’s hamnetashen recipe. I started the blog because I had been fantasizing for a while about writing a Jewish parenting book, and thought that starting a […]

Using up chametz – more recipes

posted by Homeshuling

For our Purim seudah, I decided serve breakfast foods. I have quite a few random hunks of challah in the freezer, stowed away for french toast, that I wanted to use up, but was too lazy to make french toast […]

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.)
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, ...
