Shabbos is coming...

Enjoy this little Shabbat activity pack in preparation for a Shabbos approaching, where the world will be home with their families and the streets will be quiet. Stores with be closed and many of us will have our phones turned off. Enjoy this island in time, away from the news and the Whatsapps and the memes etc. Enjoy the quiet.

Shabbat Shalom and Good Shabbos,

Book Review: Shabbos and Yom Tov Divrei Torah for Children - Volume 2: Torah Thoughts for Children

Book Review: Shabbos and Yom Tov Divrei Torah for Children - Volume 2: Torah Thoughts for Children

Rabbi Goldstein sent me a copy of this wonderful book to review, and who better to review it then my own kids.

What I love about his Dvar Torahs is that they are short, sweet and so meaningful. Each one opens with a concise introduction, followed by a question, an answer and a lesson. It is so clear and easy for almost anyone to understand as well as internalize.

Here are 2 sample Dvar Torahs that you can actually use this week. I would love to hear how it went at your Shabbos table!

This is a great book for any Jewish home- CLICK HERE to purchase it from Amazon as well as take a look inside the book.

Wishing you and yours a happy and light filled Chanukah,

Book Review - Feeling Better A-Z

Feeling Better A-Z 
A Book about Bikur Cholim
by Malka Nussbaum Chomer

I received this book to review and my kids absolutely loved it. The colorful illustrations really brought this story to life.This book really shows kids how they can perform the mitzvah of Bikur Cholim, visiting the sick, in a very real way. 

I love how the author uses each letter of the alphabet to help children discover so many ways in which they can cheer up someone who is not feeling well. C for a call, F for flowers, M for music, and T for Tehillim are all great ways to help someone feel better, just to name a few.

The illustrations show a young brother and sister overjoyed to help their friends, spend time with their elderly bubby, and visit their mother who just had a baby! 

You can find it on Amazon by clicking here or from Mostly Music by clicking here

I highly recommend this book for every home and classroom, Feeling Better A to Z can be a springboard for even more creative ideas about Bikur Cholim for the entire family.

Hope you enjoy it as much as we did!

Book Review: The Shabbat Treasure by Evelyn Goldfinger

The Shabbat Treasure by Evelyn Goldfinger is a very sweet story about a little girl named Eve who is so excited to be getting ready for Shabbat. I just adore the way she dances in front of her mirror and looks outside at the sky dreamily imagining when the Shabbat Queen will arrive.

 Her adventurous little brother Leo, however, seems to have some other ideas. He has taken the 3 Shabbat elements (the candlesticks, the challah, and the wine) and hidden them around the house and has now sent Eve on a mission to find them.

She does so with a smile as she dances through the house, completing each of Leo's challenges to find them- but then something unfortunate happens. 

You see the kind-hearted nature of Eve in how she deals with this event and how she treats her brother Leo.

Whether your child is in touch with their inner dancing princess or adventurous pirate, I am sure your child will love this story and it's colorful illustrations that go along with it.

I hope your little ones enjoy it as much as mine did,
Have a wonderful Shabbat,

Jewish ABCs - A book review

I just received a copy of Jewish ABCs by Laura Beth Wolf to review, and it is just adorable!

My 8 year old twins grabbed it and were so excited to be able to read all the words, even the more difficult ones. 

The illustrations are so clear, big and colorful.

This is a great book for little ones as the words are large and the pictures are really cute to look at.

Have a wonderful week!

Pesach Seder Menus!

I love getting creative in the kitchen on Pesach.
Most of these recipes are not especially Kosher for Pesach, and since we all have our own customs in regard to what foods we do or do not eat, you can really custom makes these recipes to your liking by omitting or adding certain ingredients.

Click on each dish for the Recipes and have fun!

Happy Cooking!
