After Christmas Sales Contest – A Homeshuling Tradition

posted by Homeshuling

My family was a little confused when I brought these home from the supermarket today. Why would I buy miniature Christmas trees at all, much less on the day after Christmas? Because they were on sale, of course!  These four […]

The Blessing of Head Lice

posted by Homeshuling

For the last two months, we have been battling the plague of lice. First Ella. Then Zoe. Then Ella and Zoe. Then Zoe again. Now Ella. We’ve tried the Lice Lady‘s Pantene method and the Cetaphil Method. We’ve used the […]

Despite recent evidence to the contrary, this is not a cooking blog. But I like to cook and when I stumble on something as delicious as this pot pie, I like to share. Even if my ungrateful brats lovely children thought […]

How to make the best bagels ever

posted by Homeshuling

I live in a town with many redeeming qualities. Unfortunately, a good bagel shop* is not one of them. As a native of Baltimore, and a former resident of Manhattan, I know a good bagel from a roll-with-hole, and I’d […]

And on the seventh day, God stayed in pajamas

Shabbat is many things, but relaxing is not always one of them. Even if all the food preparations have been completed before sundown on Friday, eating three seudot (meals), hosting guests or just being guests, and trying to get a […]

Israel – a book for children that doesn’t take sides

posted by Homeshuling

While working on my first piece for Kveller.com about Jewish books, I came across this old piece, written for The PJ Library that never made it to my blog.  When I was a child, the very first stories I read about […]

posted by Homeshuling

Have you had a chance to look up at the night sky recently? You may have, since it seems to be getting dark at about, say, noon these days. The new moon emerged a few days ago, as it does […]

Homemade Menorah Project – an experiment in bling

posted by Homeshuling

I’ve come up with some terribly unsuccessful menorah making projects as a teacher. There were the self-hardening clay menorahs that crumbled almost instantly, and the Model Magic menorahs that caught on fire, to name but a few. This year I […]

Hanukkah – to light or not to light?

posted by Homeshuling

No, I’m not questioning whether or not to light one, or several, menorahs tonight. That’s the essence, after all, of the mitzvah of pirsumei nissa, publicizing the miracle of the holiday. But today, as I prepare for the first night […]

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.
