    Does Judaism Accept Converts?

    This video is the beginning of a conversation that I’ve been having with people around the world. There’s a stirring for spirituality – and many people are asking about Judaism or are drawn to some Jewish practices. Here’s just a bit of education  about the topic. Part 2 will be posted soon (already recorded) so just hang tight if you have questions. Or, better idea, ask me your questions and we can have a Part 3.

  • Grandma

    Grandma

        Today is my Grandma’s Yartzhiet ( anniversary of her death). In my earliest memories of Grandma, she already had early stage Alzheimers.  I loved her so much and still, I wonder about all the things I’ll never know. There is history and stories that would bring more of her to light, but  today, even though it’s barely a light sketch of the woman she was, I want to tell you my stories. The Grandma I was blessed to know. […]

  • Purim Musings

    Purim Musings

        It’s Purim! The sun is fading and the day is quieting down. All the bustling on the streets has been moved indoors where family and friends are ending the day with a festive meal and spilling the joy deep into to the night long after Purim is officially over. Last year we had a pie fight. My husband was sick and I was hosting a young professionals party. What can I say, the party needed some amping up. […]

  • Boundaries

    Boundaries

    Every time I make a video I have a freak attack that I just said something too strong, or too flaky, or just too…. something. This time was no different. But when I was decided to listen to it when it finally uploaded, my anxiety went away. In fact, I was listening to myself speak, hearing myself say words that I need to hear. It felt good.

  • In Which I Quit My Job and Get a New One All At Once

    In Which I Quit My Job and Get a New One All At Once

        So you saw the video. So what more can I add. Life is an amazing roller coaster. One day I’m in Israel praying under the stars for clarity, the next week I’m in Baltimore wincing my eyes from the flash of light I receive.       To be honest, I’m still in shock. I feel like the guy who retires at 70 and can’t remember all the things he used to love. There’s a whole range of […]

  • 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 […]

  • Shabbos In The ER

    Shabbos In The ER

      And just when I was talking about things settling down… I spend Shabbos in the ER!   Everything is ok now, but my mind is just spinning with images and experiences of the last day. I  went in with my daughter  Thursday night and thought we’d be out earlier, but things were taking so long that as time marched on we knew we would be there for Shabbos. Once that reality set in, it was time to do what […]

  • 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 […]
