Winter is here for most of us. One of the most warming and comforting things for me to have in the winter is a nice, hot bowl of soup.
There are many ways to make soup. One way NOT to make it is…
Most of the time I give you a recipe for something yummy, something nice you can do to feed yourself, your family, your friends and even your community. I’m not going to do that today. Today you are going to get something different, a recipe for a mitzvah, an act of human kindness, something you can do to help someone else.
Yes, it’s that time of year again — glowing lights, fried foods and sweet little presents. To help us get in the mood here is the latest collection of Chanuka videos going viral this year. Who’s your favorite? Those sweet-toned YU boys in the Maccabeats, or the cool kids in the Fountainheads ? Or maybe you have another favorite? Check them out and let me know.
October has been a busy month. Between family reunions, the High Holidays and a multitude of family celebrations which have not yet come to an end, I’ve been insanely busy. Sometime in August, anticipating this busy time, I voiced a request to fall into a coma and to be woken up in November. No such luck…
Summer. Yes, it’s hot out there. Summer in the Middle East, really hot out there. Summer in Ra’anana, hot, muggy and uncomfortably hot out there. So what are the two things that relax me the most in the summer? I like to slave over a hot stove, I like to bake things in the oven, and I like to knit and crochet. Granted, the AC needs to be working. Without the AC my favorite thing to do in the summer is to lie supine in bed, in a coma. Wake me in November.
