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 […]

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 […]
