  • My 20′s 30′s and 40′s

    My 20′s 30′s and 40′s

        Well, I have to admit – the title of this post is a bit misleading. I’m actually not in my 40′s yet. But I’m almost there… very close. The other day, my husband and I  were reflecting on life with my sister in law Tamar. She asked us where we’re at, and I began musing;” We’re like in our 40′s. You know,  In your 20′s you’re figuring out ‘who am I?’ In your 30′s, its all about ‘what am […]

    Gold and Sequins and Rustic Rainbows

      (Pictured here, Mommy in the orange shawl with 2 friends in Jerusalem)   I can’t just write about Mommy P, The P is for Perlman She gave me my name. I can’t just tell stories that will make your eyes shine and your heart soar She wouldn’t like that. Mommy likes the hidden world and the hidden words the unspoken messages of holiness and empathy and permission to be wrapped up in the olive dip and cashew spread offered […]

  • Touch – and It’s Magic

    Touch – and It’s Magic

        This post is about an extraordinary night. If this happened all the time I wouldn’t be writing about it. Like you, I’m generally in 6 places at once with barely enough time for basic life tasks. Please don’t get the wrong idea – I’m not mom of the year – I’m just really grateful. There are no pictures in this post. No pictures because what I’m sharing is such a sacred private moment with my children that I […]

  • Dear Diary,

    Dear Diary,

      Dear Diary, Dearest Blog Friends, Universe and Me, It’s been a long time (again!) since I’ve written and we have SO much to catch up on! I’m posting pictures here of the last few months! This past summer, you remember, was the summer of humbling heartache. My kids were struggling, my husband’s job ended and I was generally just treading water. BUT, do you remember just a bit before then, that I went to Israel? I went as a […]

  • Can G-d Grow Bread On Trees?

    Can G-d Grow Bread On Trees?

    Lech Lecha  are the words that were told to Abraham. “Lech lecha, go to yourself” when G-d sent him on a journey into the unknown. We read it not only as go to yourself, but, despite the hardship, go for yourself, for your own benefit.                                                                        […]

  • To You Chev, With Love

    To You Chev, With Love

      I’m still not completely grounded. My heart is pounding and I’m a little shaky. But good shaky. The kind of trembles you get after birth when both your body and your soul have gone through an intense experience and touched the Divine. The past hour was spent on my couch with Esther Wiener, a gifted and intuitive energy healer. I’ve known Esther for a while, but just recently in synagogue as I was doling out hugs and greetings, Esther put her […]

  • My Child Saw Porn Pt 2 – The Practical

    My Child Saw Porn Pt 2 – The Practical

    Did I mention yet how much I cringed when I titled this post and the last. Using that P word is so ugly – it’s a word that’s dripping with vulgarism and yet its the accurate word to describe what went on. [Click here for the post about it] Awful as it was, I’m glad I wrote it. I’m glad I grew up without taboos -  Judaism and life are just layers of one fabric and we approach both simultaneously with G-d’s will as […]
