    Moses: “because I want to make a snowman and play in the snow.” 

    Oh my poor,...

  • This Week in Jewish Farming: Springtime for farmers

    April 8, 2014 | 9:05 am

    I get a shiver in my bones just thinking about the weather.

    Until recently, that line from 10,000 Maniacs’ 1987 single was just a song lyric. But when I woke up Monday morning and saw a heavy wet snow falling, I swear I could hear my bones rattle.

    Not long ago, the sight of an...

  • In Europe, new kosher ski options that won’t break the bank

    December 26, 2012 | 9:53 am

    January 3, 2011 | 5:28 pm

    Let’s talk about Vests.  Maybe I am the only person that doesn’t get this, but what is the point of a Vest?  And more importantly, what the hell is the point of a warm winter jacket if its missing sleeves!  I don’t get it.

    If you need a warm jacket or coat to keep you warm,...
