Homeshuling’s first *ask* – support small town Jewish education

posted by Homeshuling

I’m a lousy fundraiser. We have a $1,500 fundraising obligation each year for our daughters’ day school, and every year we end up paying almost the whole thing out of pocket because I hate asking people for money. Even for something I believe in. (Thanks to bubbie for giving without my having to ask…)

But. Our really amazing Jewish day school, which is situated in a town of under 30,000 people (not Jews, PEOPLE), needs help. Not that much help, but just enough to close the budget gap for the year and earn $20,000 in challenge grants.

Do you believe that Jews in small communities deserve a high quality Jewish education? Did you ever wish there were more truly pluralistic day schools educating the next generation of Jewish leaders? Are you able to help one child’s family afford this kind of education?

Please watch this video. And consider it a personal ask from homeshuling to you. Even if we’ve never met. But if my blog has ever made a difference in your Jewish parenting life, and you would like a tax-deductible way to say thank you, this is it. (ps, this doesn’t count towards my fund-raising obligation – we’ve already paid that off.) There’s a link to contribute $36 on the homeshuling facebook page, and our school’s website.

Thanks. I promise I won’t ask again.

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." The candles will get blessed, kiddush will be recited, an

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 made from disgusting ingredients such as cottonseed oi

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, and (alas) responsive readings, from these dog-eared, p

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 hamentashen, the same ones my mom made with me and that I mak
