This dessert puts a different spin on watermelon. It is a fun dessert to prepare and serve. You will enjoy the compliments your guests will bestow upon you after eating this refreshing concoction!
½ gallon lime sherbet
½ gallon raspberry sherbet (or strawberry)
¾ -1 cup raisins or mini chocolate chips
Allow the lime sherbet to become soft enough to be smoothed into a Tupperware bowl as to form rind of watermelon. Put into freezer as you soften and stir up raspberry sherbet with raisins or mini chocolate chips to make inside of watermelon. Pour into “rind” and smooth over top. Place seal on container and freeze overnight or until very hard. Hold bowl in your hands until it comes out of the container. Slice down from bottom to make halves, slice into thin slices or quarters for serving so that it looks like a watermelon.
Pour mixture into molds. Seal with sticks and seals. Freeze at 0 degrees or colder for 3 hours or more. Hold molds under warm water for a few seconds to loosen pops.

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.
Jews, wake up! Stop educating the world and start educating yourselves.
The lessons conform to the sensitivities and needs of the Orthodox community…
The program took on special significance as it marked not only the first anniversary of Rebbetzin Kudan’s levayah but also the 27th yahrzeit of Rebbetzin Chaya Mushka Schneerson, a”h.
It captures the love of the Jewish soul as only Shlomo Hamelech could portray it – and as only Rabbi Miller could explain it.
Erudite and academic, drawing from ancient and modern sources, the book can be discussed at the Shabbos table as well as in kollel.
I’m here to sit next to you and help you through this Purim with three almost-too-easy mishloach manot ideas, all made with cost-conscious paper bags.

It was a brisk fall day in late October some years ago when Chavy (name changed) decided that since the weather was perfect she would walk to work. She had, Baruch Hashem, just resumed her work schedule after being home for six weeks due to her maternity leave for the birth of her latest child. She felt the exercise was good for her, as it was only about a half mile to her job. She put all of her work papers into her knapsack and gingerly swung it over onto her back for the trek to work.

He had yahrzeit for his father and planned his trip so he’d arrive there just in time to join his brother at the kever. He parked his car in the area that facilitated a faster trip to JFK for his flight. Little did he know that he was being observed by a team of thieves who were “working” the Diamond District that day in order to rob the merchants of their goods.
Who said weekday dinners had to be boring? It’s simple to keep the fresh and fun with just a little preparation. Stock your kitchen with staples like whole-wheat pasta, organic fish, poultry, meats, and organic fruits and vegetables (go frozen if you can’t buy fresh).
