*This happened a number of years ago, and I’m writing about it now because, well, I finally got around to it. I thought I would share a little bit of the Rebbetzin side of things – my thoughts when we socialize in conjunction with members of our temple. It’s something people ask me about a … Continue reading

Marriage Equality and US Politics
Yep. I’m going there. See my sidebar for discussion guidelines. Lashon hara or nastiness will be deleted. This issue has overtaken not only national politics, but people’s common sense. It’s a ridiculous corollary to put forth that once men and women start marrying their own gender, suddenly people are going to want to marry their … Continue reading
And Now, For Something Completely Random
This. And, why, YES, that IS the steering wheel in the background. I most certainly did eat this in the car on the way to a meeting. Oh yes I did :-)
The Power of Words – Good and Bad.
Words have power. We all know this. Judaism has very specific things to say about how we use words, especially negative words. Durning this time of the Omer and Sefirot, a period dedicated to introspection and self-improvement, I thought this was appropriate to post. I found this blog post that Ruchi from Out of the Ortho … Continue reading

The kids are absolutely adorable – sweet, good children who probably really don’t want to be in Hebrew school on a Tuesday afternoon after a long day of school. That said, most of them … Continue reading
The Devil Wears Prada
Watched “The Devil Wears Prada” last night. I was surprised by how much I enjoyed it. Of course, Meryl Streep could read the phone book and I would probably enjoy it. Mama Mia notwithstanding. “Phone book.” I just totally dated myself. Speaking of, I am cleaning out my office in preparation for putting our house … Continue reading

Come Here Often? I’m Back – Help Me Take a Stand Against Trolls and Nasty People
*** IMPORTANT UPDATE *** After several emails back and forth with Elizabeth (Damomma), I am rewriting this post. She’d rather move on from this incident, and I don’t blame her one bit. While I think she and I have different views about this situation, I respect her desire to keep herself on the down-low, so … Continue reading
