posted by Homeshuling

The Hebrew month of Adar begins next week, which means that Purim is only a few weeks away. (Which means that Passover cleaning begins in only…..oh, never mind.) Over the next few weeks, I’ll be writing about some of the […]

Book reviews: The good ones, the bad ones, and the good bad ones.

posted by Homeshuling

Believe it or not, I like bad reviews. The good ones, anyway. I appreciate criticism of my writing that helps me become better at what I do. The review of Mezuzah on the Door that I quote most often is […]

Best Jewish children’s books of 2011, if I do say so myself.
