Karen Cinnamon started Smashing The Glass when she realized in the run-up to her wedding day, that there was no one place that brought together creative, inventive and original ideas for style-focused Jewish and soon-to-be brides and grooms. Who doesn’t love to kvell over beautiful Jewish weddings? (Photo by Gamba from Keren & Asaf’s swimming pool and popsicle Israeli wedding in the Western Galilee, Northern Israel.)


Liz Rueven is passionate about food! Her terrific blog, Kosher like Me includes interviews with talented chefs, food innovators and organic growers, plus great restaurant reviews, and wonderful recipes.

    love the babka info. thought i knew all the great bakeries in nyc, but have definitely learned of quite a few new ones–could be dangerous!

    also looking forward to trying the garbanzo bean recipe. it will help balance out the calories from the babka!
