Eden Village Camp – even better than homeshuling

posted by Homeshuling

This past weekend, my kids had the opportunity to spend part of shabbat with the wonderful folks at Eden Village Camp during their first family camp of the season.  I love sleepaway camp, and I especially love Eden Village. For […]

Rainbow Day – Noah’s dead and it’s our turn to save the earth

posted by Homeshuling

We all know the story of Noah. We might even be a little sick of it, especially if we’re parents. There seem to be hundreds of picture books on the topic, at least three of which my kids have received […]

In which I pretend to be a real author

Yesterday I played hooky from my real life. Instead of a kindergarten teacher and mother of two young daughters, I was an author presenting my new book, The Shabbat Princess, at the Jewish Book Council event in New York City. […]
