An Ode To Parsley

I know, I know… don’t yell at me! I haven’t been writing in forever. I promise that you are back on my to do list, bloggie! Life has been a bit busy with my adorable little guy and moving and etc etc… To tide you over until I am back, here’s a little piece I wrote for Mazeltot.org – As a child, Passover was always a big affair. Growing up as the granddaughter, niece, and daughter of rabbis, we always hosted large Seders. Generally, the first night was the Seder at shul......

A Perfect Book of Psalms

Since my husband and I got married, we have been doing the merge of two homes dance. You know how this goes… I have a crockpot, you have a crockpot… my crockpot is newer… sell the old. I have a couch, you have a couch… your couch is nicer… sell mine. One thing that has been fun is the coming together of our books. Daniel doesn’t have too many in his house (not for lack of having books, rather because most at boxed up at his parents’ house) but I came with......

Days like today…

When crisis strikes in Colorado, Israel or really anywhere in the world, my days look like this: Wake up. Learn there is a crisis. Obsessively check Facebook, Twitter, news outlets, any information I can find online (in the case of the November 2012 Israeli engagement it was an awesome blogger giving blow by blow)....

Young Me/Old Me

I may be creating a never ending spiral by posting this but… it got me thinking. And frankly as meme’s go, this isn’t the worst one… A friend from high school wrote a post with the identical title – Young Me/Old Me wherein she referenced another mutual friend from high school who wrote I think I’ve turned into a wuss....

Creating A Return On An Investment…

ROI – in business ROI stands for return on investment… And that is exactly what Lynn Schusterman got from the recent ROI Community Summit in Jerusalem, a return on her investment of the future of the Jewish people. From June 10-14, I attended this summit in Jerusalem with 150 other young Jewish innovators. Out of 600 applications, we were selected as connectors and creators, entrepreneurs and catalysts. From the United States, Israel, England, South Africa, Latvia, Brussels, Turkey, and even Uganda, we represented 30 countries. As a community, we descended on Jerusalem......

The Tichel vs Sheitel Situation

So you may remember… (and by that I mean you better remember :)) the blog I recently wrote about dressing as my friend Mel and wearing her tichel (scarf). If you haven’t read it yet, that’s ok… read it now. We will wait. I’m Wearing a Tichel! Okay, so my friend Mel had made the choice to only wear tichels after much consideration. Her husband is Sephardi and prefers scarves so that is the way she went… until we attended that wig sale… I walked into the town home to go play......

My Friend Mayim

That sounds like she is imaginary but it’s not. I am very excited because an article I wrote about Mayim Bialik just went up on Chabad.org. So exciting because I have been A. working on this piece for a while, B. wanting to have an article go live on Chabad for a long time, C. Mayim is amazing and I am so excited to share her awesomeness.     Here’s an except. Go read it! In a sense I had known Mayim Bialik most of my life. I grew up with her......

The 3six5 Denver Project

I was kindly asked to be a part of the 3six5 Denver project. It will be a diary of the year 2012, 365 days, 365 bloggers in 365 words. Very cool if you ask me. Here is part of my post for January 2nd. I was excited to post about the beginning of the year. It’s January 2. It’s a new day. A new year. So what are you waiting for?! Okay, well you can’t jump the hour and a half wait at Snooze. (Some things never change, right?) But I’ll take......

As The Candles Gutter Out

Today is the last day of Chanukah. Last night we lit our last candles of this holiday. With all the hype that led up to Chanukah, it’s hard to imagine that it is over. I can’t image what it feels like for Christians who have (I feel) an even bigger build up to their holiday and then only one night and one day Xmas. With all this holiday spirit and war on Xmas talk… what are we, as Jews to feel when we look at our lit chanukiah? Our chanukiah brings light......

The Pride of a Daughter

I am so very proud of my family. Now, we may be crazy but I am still very proud of my whole family. But this post is about my father. My father, my tatti, my abbasama, is a very special guy. He was always pretty slow to anger. Never hit us, rarely spanked us, and I was only grounded once… when I was 5… and I walked to the next-door neighbor’s house without telling them… and she couldn’t see me in the peephole because I was too little… I was “lost” for......
