Obsessive And Proud

As the chat pinged back and forth, a few suggestions arose that seemed worthy of a spot in the obssessives hall of fame.

Home Sweet Home?

I believe that the up-and-coming generations will not live in the grand single-family homes many of them grew up in.

Rav Shimon Schwab: Values And Views

After Rav Breuer was nifter in 1980, Rav Schwab led the community until his passing in 1995.

Cooking With Tantrums: Esty Wolbe

It was kind of a joke, recalled Esty. We never really expected it to turn into anything. If we had a family barbeque we would post pictures and I would share recipes when I ate something really good, but that was pretty much about it.

How To Travel With Children

Either bring blankets from home or get from the flight attendants. Bring sweatshirts for added coziness as the blankets are sure to fall off.

Kasha L’shikcha

Apparently, according to experts, memory loss actually comes from passing through the doorway to another room.

Summer Food Fun

Somehow, no matter how you choose to spend your down time, food always manages to factor into the equation.

Living With Lists

A list can contain not four, not fourteen, but even forty or more items all at one time (although, I’d suggest you try and limit yourself if you want to keep your sanity).

Learning The Basics

Even a kindergarten student can understand how the pennies collectively put in the pushka can add to real money that can help a kallah buy linens or feed a family for a week.

The Kosher Meat Boycott Of 1902

The bolder women joined in the fight and for some time there was a lively hair pulling in the street.

Lake George And Gore Mountain

The Lake George area has a historical depth to it, is filled with natural beauty and has a whole host of fun for those with an adventurous streak.

How To Paint A Room

If done properly, painting a room can be done in just a few hours with minimal cleanup. The key is, of course, preparation.

A World Of Flowers

This faux-soil playdough is easy, cheap and lasts much longer than its store-bought counterpart.

Dairy Keeps Me Up

Maybe the point is that we should concentrate on the basic mitzvos before we move onto the fancy ones, like koshering our kids’ braces.

The Search

Holding my coat up to the light after I dried off, I could see through it, a clear sign that the waterproofing had started to flake off. The writing was on the wall: it was time to go shopping.

Shavuot: A Reminder That We Were All There

Boaz obviously finds it necessary to reassure Rut that no one will hassle or bully her while she is gleaning wheat, and twice he admonishes his field hands not to rebuke or shame her and make her feel threatened in any way.

Jerusalem – Forty-Nine Years Later

Like a radiant bride waiting for the arrival of her groom, she is surrounded by shusvinim in the form of vibrant new neighborhoods.

Brooklyn Yeshivas In The 1930s (Part II)

Despite such opposition, the Yeshivah of Flatbush opened that year with 22 children, four teachers for two classes – a kindergarten and a first grade.

Off-The-Radar Cookbooks

Today, our gorgeous cookbooks have full-color, high-gloss pages, are loaded with gourmet recipes and are heavily marketed in advertising campaigns.

On The Bookshelf

What books would you recommend to someone seeking intellectual ammunition for his belief in 1) the existence of G-d? and 2) the divinity of the Bible?
