Vintage modern stamps from Israel via Grain Edit


Hummus and Baba Ganoush from Einat Admony (Balaboosta, Taim and Bar Bolonat).

Making these Brussel Sprouts Latkes for Chanukah.

 Loving this za’atar roasted acorn squash with pepper lemon tahini sauce.

I’m all for easier rugelah.

 Challah and Pastrami Stuffing and Bagel Stuffing sound pretty darn good any time of the year.


Good bagel shops in the Bay Area? There’s hope! My daughter sent me this and it’s pretty funny.

Can’t wait to buy new Jewish Soul Food cookbook.

Lots of good book recommendations in the Jewish Book Council’s Chanukah Guide.

Another reminder on the importance of family meals.


Alexander Gruss and his wife Lorelei have been designing and creating Judaica through Studio Gruss for a quarter century. Watch this short video here on their life and work.

This 60 minutes piece on Sir Winston who rescued over 600 children from Nazi occupied Czechoslovakia in 1939 is a MUST SEE.


Hope you had a wonderful Thanksgiving!!!

    Such a moving episode on Nicolas Winton. Thank you for presenting this for all to see and be reminded how one man/woman can make a difference. He is such a noble and lovely and humble man. Very good values. How appropriate at this season of thanks.

    I did laugh at the bagel article thinking about your reaction Julie, since you come from NY !!! I’m a San Franciscan; I love the
    sourdough bread. Forget the bagels !!

    Also, can’t wait to try making that acorn squash and the new rugelach recipe. I need a new one. Will let you know how it turns out.
