Chronicles Of Crises In Our Communities

As you’ve said in the past, Rachel, life is not perfect. Thanks for giving us a forum to kvetch in.

Feel better already

Dear Feel,

My vibes tell me that your wife has lots of company (besides which good help is not easy to come by). Regardless, you may want to encourage your wife to replace her current help with someone she would feel more at ease with.

Patience goes a long way in training even the best domestic help to perform to one’s liking. Many women are prone to turning a blind eye or just leave their housemaids to do their own thing, but those of us who stand around and watch incompetence at work are bound to become unnerved and steel ourselves against snatching that mop or shmatte right out of the klutz’s hands.

This is just one of those things that are not apt to change. To put it in perspective, the crooked painting on the wall does not bother some people, while others won’t rest until they’ve straightened it. If this were our greatest concern today, we’d be in fine shape.

Editor’s note: Regrettably, an error in the letter by Hindy K. (see Chronicles, Feb. 15) had the name of the Rabbi stated incorrectly. The sentence in its entirety should have read, “Words cannot describe the hakorat hatov that we feel toward our wonderful Rabbi Jay Weinstein and this amazing community.”

Bottles of wine accompany the Pesach storytelling – each glass of wine represents the four expressions used by G-d in describing the redemption of the Jewish people from Egypt.

There is a point that many parenting books miss: children do more for us than we do for them.

Purim is a fantastic time for fantasies, so I hope you won’t mind my fantasizing about how easy life would be if kids would prefer healthy cuisine over sweets. Imagine waking up to the call of “Mommy, when will my oatmeal be ready?”… As you rush to ladle out the hot unsweetened cereal, you rub […]

One should not give the money before Purim morning or after sunset.

The mishloach manos of times gone by were sometimes simple and sometimes elaborate, but the main focus was on the preparation of the delicious food they contained.

One of the earliest special Purims we have on record was celebrated by the Jews of Granada and Shmuel HaNagid, the eleventh-century rav, poet, soldier and statesman, and one of the most influential Jews in Muslim Spain.

Jews, wake up! Stop educating the world and start educating yourselves.
