Happy New Year!

Rosh Hashona is usually a time for families to get together. But my oldest, recently married daughter was going away upstate for the holiday, where the sleep away camp she used to attend is hosting a free event for families and alumni of the camp. I’ve never attended because I don’t think they can safely […]

Catching Up

I’m sorry I haven’t blogged in a while, but my life’s been busy. My daughter got married at the end of June, and I’d mentally planned on a bunch of blogs related to it. Jewish weddings spread out the festivities for the weeks before and after the wedding itself. The Shabbos before, the bride and […]

More Adventures in Free Food

A while ago, I blogged about various sources for getting free food. There’s the organization that used to be called “Food Not Bombs”, but has since been renamed “Community Solidarity.” They mostly distribute food that stores would have thrown away: over ripe produce, dairy products  that are just at or past  the expiration date, and […]

Barbecue Fun

We had a barbecue at our Shul (synagogue) last night, and I really enjoyed myself. I coudln’t eat EVERYTHING there, but I still found plenty to eat. It was easy enough to avoid the potato and corn chips, pretzels, pasta and potato salads, and the buns. I’m well aware that the tossed green salad and […]

Reflexión y acerca del trigo hoy en dia

La motivación y el deseo de ser feliz y saludable de la manera más natural posible surgieron de una auténtica parte de mí misma, y es de este lugar interno donde el cambio verdadero dura para siempre. También […]

El ejercitarse arriba de dicho parámetro podria inclusive equivaler a un nivel mayor de estrés. La clave es moderación, y su tipo sanguíneo ayuda a determinar algunos limites de este parámetro y actúa […]

Happy Hanukkah!

The Jewish holiday of Hanukkah celebrates a miracle, when 1 tiny jar of olive oil burned for 8 nights instead of only one. So, fried foods have become associated with the holiday- especially if they’re fried in olive oil. Potato pancakes, known as latkes, are the Hanukkah treat that I grew up with. They’re fried […]

Mazel Tov!

On Sunday, I went to my cousin’s wedding celebration. The actual wedding took place in Tel Aviv the week before, but they also had a party in New Jersey for those who couldn’t make it to Israel. He grew up in New Jersey and she grew up in Israel, and both have extended family on […]
