The Jewish Parenting Blogosphere – a new installment

I have yet to make the weekly Torah portion a part of my own children’s lives. We don’t talk about the parsha at shabbat dinner, and if we go to shul at all, it’s almost always after the Torah reading is done. (In fact, it’s usually after everything but Adon Olam is done.) But if I were going to do parsha with my kids (and one of these days I will. Really.) I would definitely take my cues from the mom who writes Parsha Projects. She creates, describes and photographs wonderful activities that bring the Torah to life for her children. Best of all, they are the kinds of crafts that are nice enough to want to spend time on, but not so gorgeous as to lead to certain tears. (Mine.) I, for one, get a horrible complex every time I even look at the crafts churned out by Creative Jewish Mom, aka Martha Stewart-stein. (Known that way by me only.)

One of my favorite entries on Parsha Projects is the post on Parshat Vayeishev, the story of Joseph and his multicolored coat. She came up with a bunch of different projects, which they did at her daughter’s birthday party. What a great Jewish mom.
Let me know if you try any of the projects!

Wow…ParshaProjects is amazing! The author is obviously an insanely talented creative force and all these projects are great. I can’t wait til my baby boy is big enough to get his hands dirty with these ideas. Thanks for the tip.

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, ...

Best Hamentashen Ever, even better. And, a Purim opera.
