Time To Move!

22 Kislev 5770 – December 9, 2009
Dear Chaya, I'm writing this to you as my children are sitting in front of a video screen. Sure I'm happy to see them safe and sound, but I worry about their sedentary lifestyle. While during the summer they are active outdoors, as soon as the winter sets in, they spend most of their free time on the couch. The truth is that they're barely moving.

Pesach Wines

1 Nisan 5769 – March 26, 2009
Pesach is a holiday where multiples abound. From the four questions, the 10 plagues and double dipping to the hodgepodge that is charoset or Hillel's famous bitter herb and matzah sandwich, nothing seems to be singular on this holiday. If only our unleavened bread were privy to such excess.

Culinary ‘Boot Camp’ Launched In Brooklyn

18 Shevat 5769 – February 11, 2009
The economy is directing people towards cost-consciousness and dining in, rather than dining out. For many of these former restaurant-goers, especially singles who live on their own, the kitchen is alien territory. Perhaps they can prep a basic sandwich, or boil a box of pasta.
