    Video – How to Tie a Tichel! The Tunisian Tie! Part 1

But a while back I caught on that to a whole bunch of people, I’m simply “The Tichel Lady.” I’ve been covering my head with tichels (headscarves) for about 15 years now and truthfully I’m just as crazy about them as I always was. This is a great hint for my birthday present – ahem! Being a proud Jewish woman I feel joyful, strong, happy and grateful. The […]

    (Don’t?) Talk to Strangers

      I was already checking out my groceries when I saw them. The conveyer belt was full but I asked the man behind the counter “please ring me up,” I have to go now. I was in  Baltimore’s  kosher supermarket so the religious man behind the counter was understanding. I walked over to where they were. I was intrigued. Jeans, a super large piercing and a cool tattoo, standing in front of the Chanuka candles. I love meeting people and […]

    The Heartbeat of a Mezuza

        My friend Rachel Zamoiski fell in love with a Mezuza case 2 years ago in Israel. She bought it then, and its been sitting in her house since. This year for her father’s yartzheit, Rachel decided to take on a Mitzvah in his merit.

  • 1,000’s of People Didn’t Wake up Today!

    1,000’s of People Didn’t Wake up Today!

    I learned a while ago about hisbodidus, spending time in personal prayer with G-d. And for the longest time I would take a daily meditative walk. I walked every day. I can’t stand the snow, and I can’t stand the cold but the winter was the best. I would spend the first half of the walk marveling that I was even out there! ” Thank You G-d!” I don’t know the first time I skipped a day, but you know […]

    Only One You

          A few months ago, I was sitting on the couch with my older sister, Chana Ita, and she says “Rif, you’re here” and she gestures with her hands, kind of belly level. “But you could be here” and she gestures about a foot higher.
