    The table is set for Shabbat with the crystal and china.  Even got out the pressed cloth napkins for my special guests.  I made a killer meal.  It’s one hour before dinner and I’ve managed to carve out a little “me” time. I took a shower and fell asleep only to be woken by a... read on

    Here’s a question I received from my dear friend and fellow reader:

    Q: So, tell me, what am i supposed to learn from Passover? How does it apply to my unorthodox life? The holidays fill me with confusion.
