I’m coming to New Haven. Won’t you join me?

cover.jpgOn Sunday, November 7, I’ll be at the New Haven JCC book fair, reading from my first book, A Mezuzah on the Door. After the reading, there will be a craft activity making mezuzah cases. The details about the event are all here.

Are you near New Haven? Come join us! And make sure to introduce yourself, since I still have a hard time believing that anyone other than friends and family members read my blog.

Cool! I understand the JCC there is very nice. My mom lives nearby; maybe I’ll head down!

I would love to come but it’s a little too far from home – in Israel. But i grew up in Holyoke, MA, and love your blog.

I will be using this book in my homeschooling class tomorrow afternoon! We are going to talk about Jewish symbols and I thought your book was a nice way to introduce a mezzuzah :)

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." ...

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, ...
