As a public school child in the 70’s, my Valentine’s Day often ended in tears. I remember digging into my optimistically large brown paper bag in first grade to find only three envelopes, even though my mother had insisted I fill out mass-produced cards for every child in my class. “No one likes me!” I […]
I’m a lousy fundraiser.

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.
