Summer wish list: A Jewish Mama Meme

posted by Homeshuling

posted by Homeshuling

Today was my last official day of work for the school year, although every teacher knows that we never really stop working. (In fact, I haven’t even finished cleaning my classroom.) At our final staff meeting for the year, we […]

photo-opp fail

This was supposed to be the new photo for my blog header. It’s great, isn’t? I mean, who wouldn’t want to learn more about Jewish parenting from a mother who looks like she is about to kill her children while […]

Graduating from PJ Library – suggestions?

posted by Homeshuling

My daughter Ella is turning eight this summer, and will not be receiving her monthly PJ Library fix much longer. She’s also beginning to  consider herself too old for picture books. And while I disagree (I’m 43, and I still […]

The last day of school, or, what to do with all that stuff

posted by Homeshuling

Today I sent my kindergarten students home with a shopping bag full of their creations – lots of drawings, quite a few stories, some paintings, some collages, and prints, and, yes, a few math and spelling worksheets for good measure. […]

Bless your children well….

posted by Homeshuling

This past Friday night I organized a shabbat dinner for the families of my kindergarten class. It was primarily a social event, but also a chance for parents to experience what the children have learned about shabbat over the course […]

What do I want them to be when they grow up? Sisters.

posted by Homeshuling

Tonight I did something I haven’t done in a long, long time. I went to a show at the Iron Horse Music Hall, an intimate music venue in the center of town that I frequented a lot in the days […]

Our shavuot sleepover

posted by Homeshuling

My friend Alicia Jo Rabins, of Girls in Trouble fame (but more importantly to me, from “played fiddle at my wedding” fame) was interviewed on Tablet about the tradition of the Tikkun Leil Shavuot, staying up all night to study […]

Thou shalt not commit what?

posted by Homeshuling

With Shavuot on the horizon, I feel obliged to teach my kids about the ten commandments. I’m fine with that – they’re good rules. After all, who wants their kids stealing? Or murdering? And that honor your mother and father […]

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.
This time of year, I'm always excited when I look at my google analytics and see that people have landed at my blog by searching for "hamentashen recipe". I love the idea of people all over the world making my great-grandmother's fabulous ...
