Festival of Eden – are you going? (ps, I can get you a discount)

What are you doing on the Sunday before Rosh Hashanah? My kids and I will be

  • making kosher sauerkraut and cheese
  • drumming on recycled household items
  • tie dying
  • hiking the Appalachian Trail
  • climbing trees
  • composting
  • watching “veggie puppetry” (whatever that is)
  • wandering the Jewish calendar gardens
  • baking in a solar oven
  • listening to the music of Soul Farm, Shir Yaakov, Chana Rothman, the Ta Shma Orchestra and more…

Doesn’t this make you want to attend the Festival of Eden at Eden Village Camp too? This festival will be not only celebrating the birthday of the world by teaching folks to care for the earth, but also raise money for Eden Village’s financial aid fund. I’ve written about this awesome camp on the blog before – here and here – and have worked hard to help find them campers from my neck of the woods. I’m honored to have my books included in the silent auction going on at the festival.


The festival is $30 for adults and $20 for students and youth ages 4 and up. Foor from Eden Village’s famous kosher, sustainably-run kitchen will be available at an additional charge.

And now for the discount – 16% off if you enter the code loveofeden when you register.

Hope to see you there!

My son went to EVC for a month this year, and it was the happiest and most content I have ever seen him in a Jewish context. My daughter will start next year too. I feel like we have found our tribe! I am here in the upper Midwest and while I love the Midwest and cringe at the whole what-you-mean-there-are-Jews-away-from-the-coasts? mentality, I have to admit I really notice when my location means that we can’t attend cool cultural events like these that would, outside of shul, strengthen & diversify our Jewish connections. So, you & your family go enjoy on our behalf! Best wishes, Mira

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.
