    This week’s Friday Food Day is dedicated to a dear friend who took her last step into becoming a Jewess.  She took her final dip in the Mikvah, promised to die for the Torah, swear to send her kids to Jewish day school, and never celebrate Halloween again.  No more cheeseburgers,... read on

    Recently a friend called to tell me her housekeeper mistakenly dumped all her hanging clothes on her bed and attempted to wash the walls of her closet in an effort to help clean her house for Passover.  It reminded me of a saying my mother-in-law reiterates every year before this... read on
